@alcinnz @travisfw @dublinux @sir This is where Stallman (controversial I know) is right inn being annoying, if you go browse a site with firefox with no-script installed and this site shows you a blank page most users would say no-script makes the web unusable (heard it on a podcast one time) but the correct action would be to notify the author that their page is broken, because it is... a website should be written in HTML according to W3C and everything is else is adidtional!

is a reaction to http2? http was/is pretty simple. what is there to gain? also, http was never meant to be "the web". that's hypermedia, which was designed from the start to be multi-protocol.

I couldn't add the fifth option "my opinion doesn't matter"

What do gig workers like Uber and Lyft drivers actually think about California's prop 22?? seems like I'm only hearing from newspapers, political parties, unions, and, of course, the corporations. But the workers are the only opinions I really care about! Are you a gig worker?

humanity needs a central nervous system. everyone should know what they need to know without having to search. everyone should be able to say what needs to be said to who needs to hear it, without first having to become an influencer or getting linked in.

I do think, however, they didn't really need those hyphens.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was a visual delight, also well written and well acted, truly fun, and, while pushing the boundaries of spiderhood, orbited, maybe worshiped, the essence of Spider Man, reminding this humble viewer what to love. The art itself is a righteous achievement, with cmy print artifacts and halftone dithering prominently talking to the viewer throughout.

All source code of abandoned software should be open sourced. Manufacturers should be forced to do so on the end of service date.

I was introduced to in-practice through Noisebridge. Anyone else appreciate Anarchist ideologies?

Trump said he feels better than he has for 20 years. It's because he's on steroids (dexamethasone). Idiot.

anyone looking at the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Fold? I'm not sure how practical it would be for serious technical work, and I'm dubious on running Fedora on it, but it's the kind of technical step forward that I love to see in hardware. It's basically a folding screen. The one personal device that *should* be fully capable of doing everything a computer should do.

really interesting look at the societal effects of the bubonic plague by Planet Money. they say income rarely or never saw a more stark improvement! npr.org/2020/09/16/913735599/a

@gdroid better sorting and searching than F-Droid itself, and it enables comments like this, so it's got than going for it, which is nice, but a bit crashy and hasn't seen an update for a while.

damn I totes would have attended but i'm just out of touch I guess

someday historians will tell our children how bad we had it in our time that we had to poison ourselves every day with mild neurotoxins just to stimulate ourselves to push through another 8-12 hours of societal demands.

turns out there's a scheme for spacial subdivision in the alternated cubic honeycomb. tetrahedra subdivide into four tetrahedra and an octahedron; octahedra subdivide into six octahedra and eight tetrahedra. At any level of subdivision, all faces are exactly the same size equilateral triangles.
I think this is what matters for a relatively organic voxel system (relative to cube voxels).
