Pinned toot

Hi all!
Richard here, I do mostly 2D art and smaller projects.
You can check out my things on:
artstation.com/richardkramen
and on my website: richardkramen.com
I only started getting real serious about 2 years ago.

I am looking for similar-minded (visual) artists in general. I loved to talk about making pictures and all that.
Aiming to start a FLOSS video game/art studio...

The current W.I.P. Drawing out dead-fronts of my guys for modeling. I mean this as an intro for my art as well. Already a busy year.

Researching for a future episode: how do you feel about employee monitoring software? Why or why not?

Please boost for bigger sample size.

This is for a future Your Secure Life podcast episode. My local tech association has a talk coming up presented by a company that makes employee monitoring software.

I’d like to do an episode (and a talk) on why that’s bad.

I have my reasons. What are yours?

kids, even very young ones, have a full range of emotions and more capacity to feel them than most adults and more ability understand their emotions than most adults give them credit for. they may not have the words to express it but that doesn’t mean the understanding isn’t there. if you have the opportunity to interact with a child please listen to them and do your best to help them feel heard and seen. it’s so, so important.

This Big (an anti-monopoly newsletter) post is of great interest to me, and I'm sure many of you will be interested as well.

To all the people saying that state #surveillance prevents illegal activity, remember that illegal does not necessarily mean immoral. It is impossible to ensure that such a system only enforces sensible laws.

So Google says that not only is JavaScript not harmful, it actually __improves__ your security.

This has to be the hottest take I've seen this year. :brain4:

Fools are in the majority, and they never lack confidence because a fool believes that being in the majority is proof that one is right.

Must've been an interesting day for the W3C TAG today, bet they weren't expecting one of their discussions on Github to make it to the top of the front page of Hacker News, right @torgo? 😉

Have privacy concerns? You should. invidio.us/watch?v=fCUTX1jurJ4 Worth a watch. The arguments fly fast and furious... but it's way easier to follow than an online Terms & Conditions document that you need to accept...

this is a wonderful way to use art. the topic needs a lot of attention. got this for five monies from a supermarket. wasn't a big hit with the locals here, i guess :( francescasanna.com/portfolio/t

@thegibson @jeffalyanak @djsundog Surveillance capitalists' greatest asset is apathy. The vast majority will sacrifice every last scrap of privacy for even the slightest convenience, as long as it's not visible to them. It's almost like most are unable to recognize privacy violations if there is not literally a pair of eyes looking at them. Which makes sense because it was the main way privacy was violated for the first 99.9% of human existence.

Today my thoughts go to the many millions of people in the #UK who have just lost their #EU citizenship against their will. I can only hope that they'll get it back someday and that this tragedy won't happen in any other country. #Brexit

Thank you @laura for reminding us that technology should be accessible and easy to use, especially when it comes to protecting our privacy!
