Big news coming tomorrow regarding the #ActivityPub question/answer server I've been working on..
horrendous YT recommendations Show more
I constantly hear talk from right wingers about how YouTube censors them, how they're biased in favor of left-wingers etc.
I don't think so. And I don't even remember the last time I saw a leftie channel there. Not neoliberal, but actual left-wing.
Nice to see #rustlang as an Easter egg in an AAA game.
So a product I've paid for, (Reflector), suddenly throws an ad in my face and the only way the developers let you dismiss it, is via an "I'm busy, email me details." button.
How about "Get the fuck out of my face and uninstall immediately." button?
Don't believe the "if you didn't pay for it, you're not the customer, you're the product". While true for proprietary software, it's also the case there that if you indeed DID pay for it, you're STILL not a customer.
FLOSS all day, every day!
lol, watching a constant stream of people telling one member who used '@here' on the Gophers Slack channel, and thus notified everyone, that she did that.
It just keeps on coming.
Folks...I'm sure she knows by now, calm down :-) #golang
This is making me emotional right now 😭
This is the version of #article13 (also known as #uploadfilters) that passed.
Pretty much the worst iteration there is, but am pretty sure these pushing for it think the exception for "micro enterprises", (which excludes pretty much any site/app one would care about these filters on), is a major concession that they've made. Not to mention that is effectively prevents your app from "going viral", but it's not like the #EU tech scene is trailing massively behind the US, so not to worry.
This is the version of the #article11 vote that passed. Disaster, but if the news papers want to die even faster than they're dying already, they've just got a major boost in that direction.
Time to fund independent, digital-only media.
We need to stop recommending Ubuntu as a good distro for people to switch to. Something like Manjaro or Solus seems like a much better choice these days.
Hi there! I am a free software developer. I enjoy working on useful software, as well as advocating for software freedom and the use of open standards, promoting data ownership, decentralization and privacy. If this is important to you, I may be worth following. If you like Go, Rust, or Swift, it may be worth following me as well. Besides computing, I enjoy metal, a good read and occasionally some gaming, (not much time for that these days).
