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.

This is the single greatest triumph of technology over itself, boost if you agree.

Also, can we make a point of always calling it Microsoft #GitHub from now on please? Thanks.


I honestly don't know how to put it in clear words. It is the second wave of the pandemic. It is hitting MUCH harder than the first wave.

Stop planning vacation trips. Stay at home. Geez. It's definitely NOT the time to travel.

This will NOT be over in a few weeks.

Good on the EU Parliament!

"The European Parliament rejected a proposal to ban terms such as “burger” and “sausage” to describe plant-based food. Europe’s farming lobby had claimed that using meat-like names could confuse consumers".

Was muss man als Fascho denn noch machen, um vom Polizeidienst ausgeschlossen zu werden?!
NS-Lieder & "Sieg Heil"-Rufe reichen offenbar nicht.


Best troll of the day: using a security weakness of Github to attach the youtube-dl source code to the official repository of DMCA requests :-)

#fediverse, the #federated approach is still server-centric. #decentralisation is people-centric. That’s why we need a global identity solution that is open standards, open source. Identity ownership is IMHO a fundamental human right, not a business model. #TCPID

German #IP lawyers - is YouTube-dl, an open source solution to download and save (this copy) videos compatible with EU law or in violation? cc

A reminder to all creative people:

If the RIAA's recent actions have reminded us of anything, it's that you cannot guarantee you have a copy of any of your work unless you have backups of it on your own system.

The 'cloud' is someone else's computer, and there is ample evidence that the someone else who owns that computer does not care at all about the hours of passion you've poured into things you make.

Act accordingly.

So, if this youtube-dl thing ends up with distributions such as #debian being pressured to remove it, I hope they consider this:

The RIAA would not have brought this action without Google's backing. Google is not a friend of your distribution.

Perhaps your distro should IDK, change its default search engine.
