Dear friends who follow me because of tech, the lulz or because you’re a bot: Over the next 30 days, I'm writing 30 Atomic Essays as a part of Ship 30 for 30. Collecting my posts on Typeshare: typeshare.co/seidtgeist

I seriously need help with being re-classified as a Freiberufler (freelancer) by the Finanzamt. The additional accounting requirements are forcing me to switch my tax advisor and costing me many thousands of euros. Anyone familiar with the process? 😓

Ein Thread 🧵: PSD2 und HBCI sind rechtlich zwei verschiedene Dinge. MoneyMoney kann bzw. darf Überweisungen mit HBCI durchführen. Die Betonung liegt auf "darf". Die PSD2-Schnittstellen sind hingegen nicht für klassische Finanzsoftware gedacht, sondern für Onlinedienste. [1/7]

Read Suz’ thread! Things that regularly raise my blood pressure: • Never-ending aggressively designed cookie banners • Fully unhinged smart home assistants • Unsolicited marketing emails • Marketing cards and modals in time-critical apps (rental, banking, etc) End it all.
I would really like if software could stop repeatedly and aggressively pushing me to use features I am clearly not interested in. Just leave me alone. It’s my computer and my time, so stop invading both of these. It feels like someone is constantly badgering me.

Looking at photo & document scanners and re-considering paper document management: Any m² of desk space and m³ of shelf space must go! I have a serious problem with this. You could say I’m the John Sculley of paper… Any small business owners in Germany living this dream?

Here’s my plan: 1. Get a double-sided batch scanner 2. As required by Deutsche law, fork this document kammerrundschreiben.de/ausga… 3. Keep documents in iCloud, but also upload them to a service for timestamped cRyPtOgRaPhIc signing 4. BURRR—recycle all the documents I *need* this!

What’s the best way to digitize a photographic print? Scan it, or take a photo with a good camera? Will likely have to do some post-processing: • Removing folds and other damage • Upscaling Would really appreciate your advice. It’s an important memory.
