friend looking for work and a place to stay, ideally in the UK, please boost far and wide
a trans friend of mine (18yo) is stuck with an abusive family in london
she's looking for a way out, and needs a place to stay until she can afford her own
she knows about programming / ITsec, and IT in general
she's willing to relocate anywhere within the UK, preferentially around london
she does have some funds saved up and would be able to contribute to living costs

Well written piece by @distel about a serious loss to the fediverse: the departure of playvicious.social, the most prominent black-oriented member of the fediverse: http://weirderearth.de/goodbyepv.html
I think there are a few things here to reflect on... critically indeed the way that the fediverse at large participates in racism systemic in our society. Much of this is social and the need for group prioritization of values. And I agree with all that analysis in the post.
FYI: if you enable Telegrams "People Nearby" feature, your location can probably be precisely triangulated. The developers don't see this as a problem and don't intend to fix it.

block recommendation (spam instances, right-wing agitprop, antivax, etc)
A group known as "fightbigtech" has been creating a ton of spammy instances full of rightwing agitprop.
Here's a list of the ones I could find:
I would recommend general suspicion of any .icu domain, seeing as they're cheap — don't autoblock them, but perhaps check their content if they show up.
As suggested* by @zoe I add the following "fightbigtech" PeerTube's instances to the list:
- katiehopkinspolitical .icu
- voicenews .icu
- antivaxxer .icu
- theduran .icu
- censorship .icu
- political .icu
live presented slideshows are mostly done in unproductive ways imo
the slideshow is a visual aid for what you're saying. and i really mean both words in that
it should have a minimum number of words on it. more pictures and plots and visualizations. have a few words. if you have no visualization for a part insert a blank slide. the slides should not distract people's attention significantly away from you and what you're saying
the slideshow is not the main part of your presentation. it *helps present it* but the main part of the presentation is what you say and how you say it. focus on that. you should be able to give your full presentation without any slides
@amandag also Firefox' devtools (F12) have a useful accessibility tab, which can check all the color contrasts on your page as well :D
