realized i never put out an #introductions toot
Hi all, I'm Justin/Jaylynn, trans demigirl and """girl gamer""" in the PNW
My hobbies include eating, procrastinating on doing game development, and developing games, in that order
I also play D&D and I enjoy swimming (tho I haven't done it much lately), and I'm in college pursuing a BS in Computer Science
I hear you, but the whole 'personal responsibility' argument isn't realistic on a scalable level here. Folks in tech/20-mid30's technologically aware/privacy rights activists etc aren't the only ones who use the public domain. And I'm not specifically talking about the Fedi in this case. Vulnerable ppl and folks who aren't as tech literate need to be included and have space in discussions on paths moving forward.
I love archive.org in general and think they do important work.
The trouble begins when they make public archives of personal data that people assume would eventually go away at some point.
The assumption is wrong, but it's made anyway.
I also keep making that mistake despite knowing better. There's something about social networks that make you reveal more than you intended to the entire public, and then not realize it's not going away.
Maybe a closed social platform isn't a bad idea.
