Did a video about basic awk usage. Forgot to record at 1080, so it's a bit fuzzy. Fuzzy's good, right?

its fucked up nowadays, you cant just make a thing. you have to make a running series of that thing, which goes on forever, and has a patreon, a mailing list, a discord channel, an official wiki, a fan wiki, a prima strategy guide, its own cryptocurrency, flag, national anthem, nuclear deterrent, etc

Pure genius: the attacker simply made an address book with every phone number on the planet and asked if their friends are on Facebook.

@BradReed I heard about it here and then coincidentally saw some videos by @ChrisWere and @HexDSL then I tried out amfora and Lagrange and started running agate for my capsule.

Other things I have seen in passing are people who download Wikipedia to have offline. I also read some articles about digital nomads that mentioned different concepts like this one 100r.co/site/working_offgrid_e

My game Neofeud is also on sale if you play those!
"Secretly the greatest and also funiest cyberpunk game on Steam" "Neofeud explored the depths that makes up our capitalist reality and I found the game to be a multi-dimensional representation of Marx's Das Kapital." --Steam Reviewers

#hyperrogue is an open source rogue like game in a non euclidean space.

It supports VR (virtual reality). It's super weird.

I have had both doses of vaccine.

5G reception still sucks.

I am very disappointed.

It is fairly obvious to me that the narratives about free software aren't keeping up with the times. Someone wrote recently that installing an old proprietary game was relatively manageable in terms of privacy, whereas a supposedly free software browser comes with many problems, such as telemetry, DRM and advertising. This is illustrative of how the software industry has changed over time. Corporations have been able to successfully assimilate free software without becoming any more ethical in their treatment of users. Control over software remains largely concentrated within a few companies.

The browser and app stores became the twin points of control, so far as the average user is concerned. Can those things be liberated?

Liberating the app store means having control over what gets shipped on phones by default, or in some other way changing how apps get delivered to phones, so that the bottleneck is bypassed (PWA perhaps?).

Liberating the browser means changing the web platform. It likely involves a radical re-imagination of what the web can be, and defining new protocols with a standards body which isn't a corporate consortium and includes a much wider scope of interests. The protocols of the web need to be simple enough that a small team could implement a browser from scratch in a tractable amount of time.

Also what gets shipped by default on any device defines the era. At present free software doesn't have much of a footprint in the “shipped by default” category.

💎 Gembro is a mouse-driven Gemini browser written in Bubble Tea. We loved it so much we made our own Gemini capsule.

Try ’em both!
