I honestly think the problem with learning to program is the attitude of what programming is for.

Instead of another tool to think with, to create and explore with, it is simply a skillset needed for a job in technology.

How can people ever enjoy computing when all the programming jobs are so boring? Or when the operating system itself is hostile to making programs?

Or even more pathetically, getting told that you are wasting your time if they are not learning C, C++, or Java.

I want to host a HTML file under a domain I own, without needing any central server/organization and without a static IP.

What are my options?

So far, IPFS seems the best. I can put my file on the decentralized network by running my own node and use a TXT DSN entry to point that to my domain (docs.ipfs.io/how-to/websites-o)

Any other alternatives?

I'm looking for something simpler and accessible (explaining IPFS, even for techy people, takes a lot).

When I was a kid I was kind of confused about how diet products work. In my mind, you were supposed to consume them on top of "normal" ones. So, eat, drink whatever you want, then have a diet soda and a piece of low fat cheese and you are gonna be healthy.

OK, that's funny, but it's all about a misconception in the head of a child after all.

Now, let's see how policymakers and corporates approach investment in green infrastructure and renewable energy.


"The officer subsequently raped Noor and her five-year old daughter in a small room used for interrogation at the border crossing."

Amnesty International reports horrific violations of the human rights of Syrian refugees who returned home.


That's the outcome of , and laws that prevent organizations from saving lives at sea.

That guy said:

"'Keep the camp of Auschwitz in good condition because I want, at some point, the national socialist regime to come back, Hitler to come back, take the Jews and put them in Auschwitz.’ ... Is one not allowed to believe and want to believe ‘I want to exterminate someone’?”

"There are no (borders) guards, if there are no dead."

OK, that's what a random intolerant hater said. Why should we bother?

Well, that's the new minister of health of Greece.


@nitrokey Android 😭 I understand, but disappointing. And that means no #mainline support...

@nitrokey Hey NitroKey, as a #postmarketOS dev this honestly gets me a bit worried. I've seen several companies jumping on the "Linux on mobile" bandwagon without realizing what makes the PinePhone and Librem 5 so great: mainline Linux kernel support.

Please make sure that if you make a Linux-based phone, it'll either ship with mainline support or has at least work going to it to make that happen in the future!

And to think these hypocrites in the EU were falling over each other to criticise Trump’s wall.

Et tu, Brute?


The US losing face in #Afghanistan, at the price of so many deaths, puting millions at risk, is no suprise for anyone who followed the releases of WikiLeaks along the years.

Nor are the insane profits made from it by Raytheon, Lockheed-Martin, Northrop-Grumann, KBR, etc.

None of the people responsible for the war in Afghanistan or the war criminals ever got sued.

Yet, #Assange the journalist who helped expose endless wars is rotting in jail, tortured by the Empire...


Greece is burning...

Thanks to decades following the dogma of eternal economic growth we managed to change the climate globally.

People in Greece are facing one of the hottest summers in years.

At the same time, neoliberalism and austerity policies marked as "waste of money" any reasonable investment in people, knowledge and technology to prevent or effectively tackle wildfires. Forests have always been an unprofitable "business", why should we care after all?

I'm so thankful right now I get to focus on building something that's meaningful. I know down the road I'll look back at this time where I fill my day with ActivityPub, IndieAuth and building tools to empower individuals instead of corporations. I don't take it for granted, and I know I won't have the luxury to do this forever. Thank you to everyone who has helped me work on Owncast today.

How our meat-based diet kills our rivers?

"Farming. This is now the biggest cause of river pollution in the UK. There are various reasons, including soil erosion, fertilisers and pesticides, but the most intense and extreme cause, especially in the west of Britain, is industrial livestock units."


Never heard of this before but have to try it now.

"I want to thank every employee and every Amazon customer," said, with regards to his space trip.

We owe a huge thanks to Jeff Bezos. Hope that his words will be repeated again and again by the media. It can certainly help the workers of the world contemplate how the world works.

Edward Snowden on spyware: 'This is an industry that should not exist' youtu.be/I5WjTTi67BE . Near the end he also points out we need to work collectively. He is correct. It is going to take all of us.

On July 19, wrt reveals, the EU Commission chief said that the claims have "to be verified" but that, if true, "it is completely unacceptable.

On July 6, the EU Parliament had approved the ePrivacy Derogation (), allowing providers of e-mail and IM services to search messages of each citizen. A follow-up regulation will make it mandatory.

Instead of empty words, if the EU commissioners, MEPs and PMs really value privacy and freedom of speech, they can just repeal .

‘Men have a tendency to eat meat so they’re perceived as manly, and changing that gender stereotype could lead to a reduction in carne consumption, according to a UCLA study’

We are living in a climate emergency with animal agriculture being the leading cause of most of the environmental problems that we are facing today. This world urgently needs more selfless protectors and less toxic masculinity: for the animals, the planet & for your own health.
