And the trolls are rolling in.

If the width and breadth of your hottest of takes on the Russian invasion in Ukraine is that it was "provoked" by Ukraine wanting to join NATO, then... *plonk*

There's an imperial (ha!) shit-ton of things NATO needs to be rightfully criticized and blamed for.

Putin's invasion in Ukraine is not one of them.

I want a Web where CDNs are unnecessary.

Where different organizations, different website operators, can help each other out by hosting assets for each others' websites, thus spreading the load across many orgs in solidarity, instead of centralizing it in gatekeepers.

I've had this idea for years. The problem always was: how do I trust third party operators with my website's assets?

I believe I might slowly be getting to a point of having a decent answer to that question.

No blockchain required.

Monopolised, centralized social media is a monoculture where mind viruses can spread unchecked.

Hey @session , Session IM is running on the #Oxen network, right?

From the docs:

The non for profit Oxen Privacy Tech Foundation receives a governance reward of 9240 $OXEN every 7 days. This reward is used to pay for development, marketing, and community projects, more information about how the Oxen treasury and governance reward is managed can be found on the OPTF website.
docs.oxen.io/about-the-oxen-bl

If I am reading this right, this would mean that it is hard-coded that OPTF gets this reward.

In other words, if I wanted to use #SessionIM, but for whatever reason had a problem with OPTF's politics or actions or whatever, it would be impossible for me to use Session (or, say, a compatible independent client) in a way that would preclude OPTF from getting this "governance reward"?

Am I reading this right?

How to use popular culture to explain single point of failures and password choices

RT @Chamomillionair
@TeawithTolkien Honestly, as a smith he should have known better than to create an evil plan with a single point of failure. Voldemort had the right idea, but he did the equivalent of making his passwords the street he grew up on, his mother's maiden name, and his favorite pets name.

BEWARE: As Halloween gets closer, police are warning parents to LOOK at your child’s candy before they eat it. Some houses are reportedly handing out Amber bear amulets of neolithic hunters, 1700-650 BCE, found in Slupsk, Poland

I think most tech is bullshit. 4k screens, multi-camera phones, new gadgets. Bullshit. I have a 6 year old laptop, and an external monitor someone threw away. I have a 30 Euro 18 buttons mouse, from a non-brand, and a 20 Euro pair of headphones that are some 5 years old. All good. Am working on a multi hour documentary with these. My phone is 7 years old. My desk is made out of an old closet. My electric scooter is 8 years old. Not made out of an old closet!

Audio systems....bullshit. Microphones...mostly bullshit. Cameras, pretty bullshit.

What I mean is the difference between brands and prices is almost non-existent in terms of quality + what you do with them matters. The reason people are obsessed with these is because companies are great at selling illusions and useless features, plus blowing out of the water tiny miniscule differences to make them look important. Hard truth to swallow if you are a techy-guy/girl. But that's the truth.

After I switch instances this weekend, should I do a follower-only AMA (not immediately, to give time for people to re-follow)?

hell yeah. craig wright has to pay hodlonaut's legal fees after a judge ruled that hodlonaut describing wright as a "fraud" and "scammer" was fair.

@admin I’m calling shenanigans. I already replied to this, and it looks like the post I replied to was deleted and reposted to unlink my post from the thread. In fact, I had several posts in that thread which are now all censored in some way. There are serious problems with #Mastodon when censorship of a civil discussion happens so easily, like Reddit. /cc @rysiek

@rysiek and low latency, spotty home connections can help, but require a different mindset on what people expect from services...
