@bkastl exactly. Making things easy for people like "them" and hard for the rest. This problem would open up a can of worms, but basically it all boils down to accessibility instead. Check @laura for more on that.

@bkastl In my opinion, if an algorithm leads to "racist" or discriminating results, why use it at all? It does not matter if it is trained using biased data or if it is simply "dumb". The results are the same and it us our responsibility as devs to say "no" to such things instead of arguing about the algorithm. Its still us, who write those algorithms.

Liebe GLS, könnt ihr erklären warum Ken Jebsen über ein Konto bei der #glsbank spenden für die Verbreitung von #verschwörungserzählungen und #antisemitismus sammeln kann, und wie das mit euren ethischen Grundsätzen vereinbar ist?

Ganz viel Liebe für den mutigen Menschen, der letzte Nacht in der #ludwigstrasse die Bullen zu Brei gebrüllt hat. Ich und einige andere haben die Kraft dazu nicht mehr, du hast für viele hier gesprochen. Danke dafür!

@markosaric @wizzwizz4 I'm using shared hosting, so fail2ban is not an option. As I'm using a CMS system I've installed a "honeypot" extension that adds a hidden field (in my case "url") and expects the form fill to be at least 5s. It blocks a lot of bots already, but not all. Maybe I should increase the expected duration.

@wizzwizz4 @markosaric Yep. So called "honeypots" do not work anymore. I have one installed but bots keep on crawling in since a couple of months. I would also self host, so I'm open to ethical alternatives.

Today’s This Is HCD podcast interview with Gerry Scullion is probably one of my best ever.

We discuss the role of design in surveillance capitalism (and beyond), colonial vs non-colonial design, alternatives to Silicon Valley malware and more.

Give it a listen if you can.
