For the people working on crypto games that are saying “we’re doing things differently, no NFTs, no coins etc” it’s amazing how often they make it seem innocent by saying “it’s no different than this feature in this old game I love” and all I can think is… why do crypto at all then if that old game have the exact same features?

Wild that I worked on a game with crypto stuff in it for 6 months (I wasn’t involved in that decision or the crypto tech) and I still have never heard a single benefit crypto can bring to games. It either makes things worse, or it’s trying hard to avoid NFTs and coins but doesn’t add anything that isn’t already possible in games

@aral Hi Aral, I was wondering if there's a basic VPS provider you currently recommend? Any suggestions?

I've had to keep postponing a job interview because I got covid. It was meant to finally happen tomorrow but the person interviewing me now can't because he has covid

The Small Web isn’t about going back to the days of GeoCities. It’s about going forward differently, using modern tech in a non-colonial manner.

It’s not about building clones of Twitter, YouTube, etc. There’s no way anyone can self-host a dozen different services. Instead, it’s about having a single-tenant place on the Web that you own and control without technical knowhow; a place you can add Twitter, YouTube, etc., *features* to.

Honestly, I don’t actually like social media. There must be a better way

This is FaceApp doing a "gender swap", which apparently makes a stereotypically female and male version of you :/
