Aspect of an .

I sometimes barge into conversations about decentralisation or distribution with "working on it". I am, in phases.

Right now the focus is on stable, efficient, fast, encrypted multi-path capable streaming. A mixture of WireGuard, some things popularized by QUIC, but mostly experience from Joost.

Next up will have to be some (optimized) other P2P building blocks.

After that? Depends. Really think something like planet scale 9p (). But that enables a lot.

NFTs are clearly a direct response to a modern world in which it's rare for anyone to actually *own* anything, instead renting/streaming it all from five companies

so, of course, instead of taking the message from this that we're living in a fucking serfdom and that's not okay

these bros are just like "well *I* wanna own things so I'm gonna set up a system where a lot of people lie to me about how much I own this monkey to make me feel better"

seems like 90% of what techbros do is respond poorly to how hellish the world is by creating a magical illusory internety alternative to everything

I am looking for laser cutter software that will run, and preferably compile, on Linux - bonus points if it compiles on 64-bit arm platforms.

As fun as the Indiana Jones films are (the first three at least), this kind of thing is genuinely disturbing.

My parents travelled a lot when we were kids, and before we were born. They told me stories of people who would take some artifacts.

I don't approve - and yet I do also understand the argument that it may actually be a bit better to take something than literally leave it rotting by the side of the road. TL;DR, maybe.

Skulls in the oven, though? Ugh.

Apple is slowly boiling frogs on client-side scanning.

They got a backlash when they announced everything they were planning all at once so now they’re drip feeding it, hoping you won’t notice.

Natalie Grams-Nobmann ist mal wieder sehr schön deutlich.

"Niemand kann naiv genug sein zu glauben, es hätte keine Folgen, wenn Menschen jahrelang Zuckerkügelchen als sinnvolle »Alternative« zur Medizin angedient werden. Oder wenn das Narrativ bedient wird, Wirksamkeit könne anders als wissenschaftlich erklärbar erzielt werden."

"Ich sage: Wer Globuli sät, wird Impfgegnertum ernten. Denn wer an den einen Unsinn glaubt, ist geneigt, dem nächsten auf den Leim zu gehen."

Wow! Europe's largest network of 45,000 small and medium ICT enterprises are standing with Nextcloud, against Microsoft - urging the EU to open an Antitrust investigation! digitalsme.eu/european-sme-sta

My son is home sick, and the stomach bug he had Monday has reached me. Not that important other than it's another wasted week, and I'm not feeling my best. Some crankiness may be the result. I'll try to keep that in check, though.

In related news, paw patrol melts my brain, and it's not even though worst show.

web surfing has become all but impossible. nothing links anymore, it's all narcissistic inside linking if anything. i used to surf links across the network, stumbling from one thing to the next, surprises and missteps. now it's all search hubs and feeds rather than networks.

what we use now via the http protocol isn't really the web anymore. there's no web here. it's all silos, standing alone and trying desperately to keep me from leaving. no longer a digital ocean, now small tide pools with no path between, left in the receding wake of the surf.
