EU is pushing through a new law that will require phone manufacturers to support their products for a longer time, because so many phones are made useless when they would work for much longer without planned obsolescence.

online discourse in general 

@dumpsterqueer several years ago, before everything became mashed together under "discourse" we would have called this wank, rolled our eyes and left them to their own bullshit. we've really lost the tiers and scales of how important something actually is and heightened EVERY.

I'm floored, because DuoLingo launched a beta for Navajo!

It's honestly making me a little emotional, because my family never inherited our ancestral language. My grandfather's generation were taken from their families and forced into indian boarding schools where they beat you for practicing your culture.

Seeing an indigenous language preserved in a mainstream tool is incredible.
