Again, legitimate buyers got the worse deal, thanks to DRM.
But hey, people keep buying the garbage, so I guess it works.

New, #fediQuest themed header for 2020 :-)
Didn't know about Thunderbird either …
This says everything I've thought about #Brave for a long time, way better than I can say it.
I don't know who needs to hear this, but:
In most Western countries, the right wins because they vote.
Be it with entusiasm or reluctance.
For populist charlatans or true believers.
Locally or nationally/federally/in the EU (pick whichever applies).
When their party is currently in power and when it is not.
Out of hatred, fear, due to momentum, or with conviction.
Bottom line? They vote.
You? Statistically, not so much, no.

quote from me in the news about twitter decentralization
I was quoted in this newsletter about yesterday's Twitter news, saying, "Realistically I don't think this is going to go anywhere; most of these kinds of projects fail. What I'm worried about is that it is going to be a big distraction. It's going to attract resources from the ecosystem that is already out there."
...Because Tony Blair does not represent Labour politics, unions, workers.
This is a man who made Labour a less openly racist Tory 'alternative' - that is no alternative at all if you care about economic populism, human rights & transformational government.
This is the man who not only lied us into the Iraq war, but continues consulting for the Saudis, Sisi etc.
If someone like that is your man, so be it, but to me the policies actually matter.
A lot of people are saying that #Corbyn wasn't well liked by the British public. And from the interviews I've seen that seems true, the fact that they have an image of Corbyn as painted by the Sun notwithstanding - however in these same interviews, the suggested replacement tends to be "someone like Tony Blair".
My question to everyone dumping on Corbyn today is this: Is it worth for Labour to win, no matter what, for the sake/name of it? Even if it represents nothing Labour is supposed to? ...
TWITTER's 'open' protocol won't be #activitypub nor open.
Nothing to see here.
@saper I've just read about APL, J, and K. Interesting! I picked J to do Advent of Code stuff and I feel unhappy about it all...
