hey remember when the Panama Papers came out and showed that most of the rich people in the world are part of an enormous conspiracy to dodge taxes and hoard all their money, and then literally nothing came of it

The solidbase app now got some style and an introductory text what it is all about:

There are a lot of related concepts that not everyone in the fediverse space is very familiar with, eg CAP theorem (AP is very AP, in that sense).

I am thinking of doing little writeup explainers for the uninitiated alongside the demos of some of these ideas, even when there are no demos to show for them. Is this something people would find valuable?

Capitalism is a cancer. If our species is to survive, we must attune our immune system to identify the tumours—billionaires/trillion-dollar companies—as a threat instead of feeding them and celebrating their growth. And we better do it fast, ‘cos the patient is on life support.

If capitalism needs "surveillance" tacked on front of it for you to recognize it as a thing hostile to your well being and survival then you are accustomed to privilege and part of the problem

imagine if people didn’t have to work in insurance or advertising or any of those pointless industries invented by capitalism and we all just did what needed to get done. like honestly what could that be, a four hour work week?

Terrific interview with @doctorow@twitter.com by @rgibli@twitter.com examining declining incomes for writers and how we should start taking the interests of authors seriously. Great work @authorsinterest@twitter.com authorsinterest.org/2019/02/21

Blockchain: decentralisation centralised on my coin.

Hint: the core of decentralisation isn’t about having a billion copies of the same database. It’s about a billion people each having their own, unique database.

PS. In a truly decentralised system, no one makes a billion dollars. *watches all the right libertarians make for the door*

PPS. A venture capitalist would never invest in a truly decentralised system. Why? See PS, above.

Hint: surveillance capitalism isn’t a problem just because of the surveillance. The problem has two parts. It’s right there in the name.

♲ @LibertyPaulM@linuxrocks.online: itch.io needs more love from gamers. Including, it pains me to say, the linux gaming community.

itch.io does everything linux gamers want. A quality open source client, treats devs and players with respect and generally acts as a moral company should. Still it gets ignored.

Also, this thread shows they have the right business attitude. No need to go all out with "we're gonna compete with Steam and be a big boy killer". That way makes failure inevitable

In other words, if this happened and we put it in the ActivityStreams core context, nobody could surprise you by rebinding "Note" to something else. I'm not saying we should do this, but it's something to consider and discuss for the future.

I'm working on the code for this in the canonical json-ld implementation (the js one) and it's turned out to be barely any lines of code at all: github.com/digitalbazaar/jsonl

This is a growing movement, with children from over thirty towns across the #UK participating and the union of headteachers supporting it. Every day we hear more reports about climate and ecology -related disasters, the origins of which are man-made, the consequences of criminal responsibility on the part of countless so-called ‘grown-ups’. Young people are standing up and saying enough is #enough.

@ASIC @chidgey @aral @noorul @franz It is a fact that Apple toys are super expensive, and then there is the expensive accessoires, and the right "to not repair" by choice. Apple is hiding behind a huge paywall. Can we safely promote such expensive products from a USA base tech giant just for the reason of supposedly being more secure and privacy friendly ? Where are the people from under-developed countries in this discussion ? They are not here because we collectively just widen the gap between rich and poor. We live on a luxury island, using toys made of sources coming from those under-developed countries which are the heritage of colonial times. Now, Fairphone can run LineageOS and Ubuntu Touch. That is for sure more privacy friendly than plain Android. https://www.fairphone.com/en/ #fairphone

@baldur if Google’s business model wasn’t about selling ads then Chrome would have integrated an ad blocker into Chrome a long time ago, for security reasons.
