What if there was a "web" with:

1) "links" as either hashes (for immutable data), or public keys (for mutable channels, whose value is always one immutable link) - or, cheap local-memory-address equivalents of these two if on a fully trusted, purely local system. Assume a short-key-length PK system like NaCl / Curve25519

2) "documents" at links that are fairly small (maybe 1K to 64K) and consist of something like CBOR or BSON

3) a tiny pure-functional, immutable-data language over this

From a certain friend:

Tech folks have the biggest advantage on the internet.


1. work online,
2. share ideas, solutions, and problems,
3. find people to pair up with on projects,
4. publish hobby projects,
5. have the ability to build (personal) websites that also improves the entire stack of possibilities

And so much more.

Not all verticals/functions have this advantage.

MicroFleng is a low level concurrent logic programming language descended from Prolog. A cross-compiler for UNIX-compatible systems is provided to translate programs written in FLENG into executable code for Z80 CPUs running CP/M, the Commodore 64 and Uxn, Oh, and it does.. GRAPHICS?!

I have noticed a large portion of those on #Mastodon happen to be #Linux users and #FOSS advocates in general. Lets see just how many are.

What's your OS?

Ongekende ramp. Respect voor collega @Moorlag@twitter.com en vakvereniging @ieni@twitter.com die zich onvermoeibaar voor hun vak en beroep inzetten. We hebben een doorbraak nodig om het lerarentekort terug te dringen. cc @DennisWiersma@twitter.com

Als je net als ik enthousiast nieuwe accounts bent gaan volgen, kan het handig zijn om filters te configureren in je Mastodon instellingen.

Sommige onderwerpen ben je gewoon niet in geïnteresseerd.

Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.

Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.

Tip: gebruik een crossposter als je nog geen afscheid van Twitter wil nemen. Ik gebruik crossposter.masto.donte.com.br

Welke 'concurrent' zal in over 5 jaar de meeste abonnees hebben verworven?

This is Minime and I am also testing how to add an alt-text to a picture.

This can be done just after uploading the picture and then choose for edit (Bewerken in Dutch).

Alt-texts for pictures are very important!! People with eye sight problems use software that reads the information for them. So be sure to add alt-texts to your pictures online.

Using risc emu becomes much easier when you can edit source code from the comfort of your modern editor. Uploads modified files automatically to your running system.
