How bizarre. This seems to stem from the Blender Foundation refusing to enable ads on their videos. It is quite rare to have a large channel disable ads, so did YouTube just demonstrate their platform is one big Hobson's Choice?

This would break the internet.

Imagine YouTube Content ID, but for everything: blog comments, tweets, Github commits, Instagram photos, replies to newspaper articles, rental listings, dating profiles.

This is being proposed in the EU. #Article13

I recently ran PhotoRec on a very old laptop of mine. I found two screenshots from 2009.

The only thing missing from this screenshot is RocketDock.

It's not going to be a flashy apocalypse.

It will be a slow decline into the Internet of ISP gatekeeping, and you probably won't even know what neat services and helpful resources you're missing.

“10 years ago today:
• jQuery was battling Dojo, YUI, and mootools for dominance
• node.js wasn't a thing
• Firebug was the only real developer tool
• Chrome wasn't released yet
• nobody took JavaScript devs seriously

Things change a lot in 10 years.”

It's great to see an android fork that takes privacy/freedom as an important feature.

I could say I'm disappointed in the Linux Foundation, but I didn't have a high opinion of them to begin with. I think this is the same guy who delivered a talk while conspicuously running a Mac operating system. This is a guy whose advocacy is disingenuous. Why he has any high ranking position in the Linux Foundation is a total mystery to me.

Straight up he fails to declare an interest. Microsoft is one of the financial backers of the Linux Foundation. Is he going to write anything bad about a company that partly pays his salary? Absolutely not.
