i think a lot of people have a kind of nostalgia not because of a lost past but a lost future? like, i was thinking earlier, as a teenager i saw the emerging online music culture, of hundreds of people with their own little websites (blogs i guess) hosting RAR files containing albums that people would submit along with personal notes and pictures and so on, and thought THIS was what the future would be like. i was very excited about sending my music to these blogs for the rest of my life

I've also been told that they release 3 new sheets a week that they'll mail you about if you join the mailing list :D

30 years ago, a Finnish student announced his hobby operating system (won't be big and professional like GNU) to the Minix community.

it's sad how polish "liberals" are closer to american republicans than democrats

Something I've been noticing with the whole #Apple scanning your device content fiasco is that a lot of the rhetoric centres around the ability of China/Russia to misuse this.

While true and may serve a rhetorical purpose, this is being rolled out in the U.S. only. Clearly not at the CCP's request.

Americans need to be able and willing to first admit that oftentimes it is just fellow Americans doing unethical shit to their fellow Americans. You'd never improve your own country otherwise.

Unpopular opinion: blocking someone at a user level does not mean they are anti-free speech. Free speech means you have the right to speak, that does not mean you can force other people to listen to you or take you seriously.

Przypominamy, że narzucanie ludziom tożsamości płciowej jest jedną z najbardziej szkodliwych form państwowej przemocy. Płeć przypisana przy urodzeniu jest formalnoprawnym aktem władzy. Transfobia jest wspieraniem struktury państwa i patriarchatu.

Somehow we've built personal interactive computers that, in 2021, in daily use, regularly get into states where they take upwards of a minute to react to keystrokes and mouse clicks, and we've convinced ourselves that this situation is either perfectly normal or entirely the user's fault.

Why does Firefox 90 consume a minimim of 482 megabytes of RAM on starting up when I have only one tab open and that's a locally downloaded 1.6 MB PDF?

Why is this normal?

For any trans people who need to hear this:

Your body is beautiful. You're worthy of being desired, if that's something you want.

Whether you choose to transition (and in whatever direction you want), and wherever you are in that process -- you're seen, you are believed, and I'm proud to be your sibling.

When you look in the mirror, you deserve to hear, "Hey, Beautiful." If you don't hear it in your voice, hear it in mine.

Your strength is incredible. You come from a long tradition of transgender people, stretching back to the earliest days of humanity.

Let the haters shout into the void. You don't need to. The Void already loves you. ✨​
