I accidentally hit a picture in the Google Captcha thing that wasn't of a crosswalk, but it still let me through.

sooooo to anyone who gets hit by a self-driving car while walking in a crosswalk, sorry that's on me.

Two days after repair guy Louis Rossmann helped show how Apple tells their customer to buy a new computer if even as little a pin on a connector is bent, Apple told US customs to impound 1000 USD worth of his spare parts as 'counterfeit'.

Rossmann was not amused.


A lot of science fiction is actually invariance fiction. Showing by construction that some aspect of human nature could plausibly remain immutable even under very different conditions.

@jcbrand And I'll also admit that when I am talking about the disadvantages of the free market, I am mainly thinking of the capitalist model, as that's what we have today.

Free market today is very much tied to capital. Free software isn't. That's why I think *today's* free market is not to be thanked for free software. (And as I said, that doesn't mean it can't help, just that it is not a product of it).

If a post capitalist free market emerges, that may be very interesting indeed.

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).
