It looks like the first #PixelFed instance has come online. The goal of that project is to be a federated decentralized social photo sharing application, like Instagram without the corporate control. I am @firstname.lastname@example.org there.
Hi! We notice you're driving past our bookstore!
That's great, but you have your car windows closed. Would you mind opening your windows? We'd like to fill your car with wasps and locusts.
Now just one minute. Filling strangers' cars with wasps and locusts is how we pay our bills. Do you want us to starve?
We understand you may have had some bad experience with other wasp-and-locust providers. Some low-quality locusts got in the mix. But that's all been sorted out now!
Window. Open it.
I am a professional open source license policy wonk. If you are not in my field, and you specify "GPL" without the version number, I just assume you don't know better. If you are in my field, or you even think you have opinions about my field, and you specify "GPL" without the version number, I have to assume you are trying to sneak something past me. I don't like it when people try to sneak things past me.
Two hours ago, I was pretty pro-GDPR. Then I read today HN thread about it. From the behavior of the GDPR proponents, and the points raised by all the sysadmins, developers, analysis, network and database technology experts, and small business owners, I've come around and changed positions. With friends like the GDPR proponents, the EU regulators and lawwriters don't need enemies.
I learn amazing things, and meet awesome people, and introduce them to each other.
