i liked the first dot com bubble, though. i think a lot of people get excited about services like Mastodon and privacy-centered, independent services on the WWW these days because it reminds them of what the Web *should* have been before Google, Apple, FB, etc. took it over and ruined a lot of it.

@JPEG Mast handles maintaining scroll position very nicely now. Well done 👍

Youtube won't stop recommending me jordan peterson videos.

I have never watched one.

I keep saying I am uninterested in them.

The rest of my recommendations aren't any better, most of them are the equivalent of clickbait advertisement "articles" on the bottom of websites.

A huge company full of people far smarter than I will ever be has put countless hours into making an algorithm that just vomits up junk recommendations to me that try to waste my time and get me upset..

The future is now.

Any other devs here struggle with ADHD? What works for you? Web searches have proven unhelpful.

Amazon acquiring Eero is a nice reminder of the risk of the technology players getting too big. It becomes extremely difficult for any small players to survive -- the limited set of 5 companies compete in every space. It's bad for innovation, everyone works towards acquisition.

Hello, World!

This is the first blog post about Marmota, a distributed and Free Software alternative to Spotify (and by extension the majority of the music streaming services)

blog.marmota.nefixestrada.com/

Boosts and feedback appreciated!

I find myself often wanting to post about the things that bother me, but less so for the things which delight me. I should try to be more conscious of this, taking time to actually appreciate the good things.

I appreciate the irony of a blog post talking about ethical design that tells me about its use of cookies to track me so it can show me ads.
