Blog At The End Of The World is henceforth pinned. Will retoot whenever updated.
Funny to see the youths trash music and movies that I loved in my teens and twenties— I remember feeling the same way towards how simplistic and stereotype-filled boomer entertainment from their early years was. But unlike boomers, I’m not staying up all night trying to figure out how to rip young people out of more rent.
Don't get me wrong, computers can absolutely help us regain our environmental efficiency. They just *aren't*.
Not as long as we're:
* constantly syncing everything to the cloud,
* expecting same-hour delivery,
* funding our clickbait via surveillance advertising,
* buying a new phone every year,
* using AIs because they're cool rather than useful,
* running bloated software & webpages,
* buying into "big data"
Computing is environmentally cheap, but it rapidly adds up!

Immigration Rights Groups Raise Alarm over ICE Plan to Host “Citizens Academy” | Democracy Now!
ICE plans to launch a six-week so-called citizens academy class in Chicago, where the agency plans to teach attendees “defensive tactics” and “firearms familiarization” to arrest undocumented people. Immigrant rights advocates are sounding the alarm on the initiative, which ICE hopes to expand nationwide. Silky Shah, executive director of detentionwatch, said ”ICE is recruiting an army of 'citizens' to fuel its propaganda machine and forge hatred in our communities. … [T]he outcome of this program will be more terror unleashed upon immigrant communities and people of color.” #AbolishICE
