@ashfurrow running water is pretty great.
I'm selling this 26" Schwinn Ranger red bicycle. Prob a really good deal. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/bik/d/atherton-schwinn-ranger-red-mountain/6804627551.html
@deshipu makes sense for non-technical, non-legal audiences. Can't skirt the issue forever, though. This is why github is so confusing. Everything (browsable) on github is public, but much (most?) isn't technically legal to use because authors never chose a license.
@rixx a very well written quick read. heated up my laptop with all those high fps interactive illustrations though. Not to complain.
Where is the conversation on #dweb alive, other than technology-specific communities?
@ashfurrow Computers? No... this is cell technology. Are you positing that the tech industry set up an inexorable path to an anticompetitive telecom industry? Anyway, yes this is bad.
@AskChip that's interesting. My point is mainly that we have another hundred years or two at the current rate of progress before I would stop calling medicine 'primitive'. That said, I'm extremely grateful for modern immunology, and soap.
@deshipu oh hi. I used Hatta for many years. Thanks for that.
The web didn't model apps. Webapps were a hack, and the beginning of siloization. To fix, the #dweb needs to separate what the user does from how, so that how becomes a choice, no matter what.
Writing Python for the #dweb, you shouldn't import antigravity. The user could add antigravity to your function if they need it.
Free people have choice. The new #dweb must gather potentiality and sort best options. Attention is currency. Manage your budget.
To be free, we need high level building blocks anyone can compose programs with. Take a lesson from shell scripting, but level it up with the #dweb.
Everything closed is dead. If I can't open and fix it, I can be sure it will eventually break, if not already. Let's free ourselves with the #dweb with succinct, legible code, or nil.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
