Activists rally to save Internet Archive as a lawsuit from publishers threaten to shut it down decrypt.co/31906/activists-ral

If people are smart, it's time to archive the Archive right now. In other words, fork it and turn it unto a decentralized platform. I hope someone out there is working on that.

Plus you have to think libraries need some decentralization as well as this lawsuit could kill libraries as we know them.

Hi! mastodon.social is being slow right now, as far as I can tell because there's twice as many people using it at the same time as ever have; I'm working on making it go fast again, but in the meantime, do remember to invite people to joinmastodon.org instead of directly to mastodon.social. People don't have to be on the same server to follow you! Thanks!

I still firmly believe we need to reclaim web 1.0 and the good bits of 2.0; build a website, write a blog, follow each others’ RSS feeds, and help each other to do so

On #AlpineLinux & #postmarketos , I was fed up with the janky way that xdg autostart is used to run things on login, so I wrote a brand new user service supervisor, called superd. It's like systemd --user but without all of the rest of systemd.

There’s something I need to explain to you: You can’t compare Web1 to Web3 because on Web1 nobody cared about money until Yahoo showed up

I am legitimately in awe of the person so far up their own ass that they think "I haven't heard of NFTs" and "NFTs are awesome!" are the only possible responses here.

Also, no, NFTs are not fucking "Web 3.0", Children of the Coin fuck off

Trump’s social network has 30 days to stop breaking the rules of its software license

The Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC) says former President Donald Trump’s new social network violated a free and open-source software licensing agreement by ripping off decentralized social network Mastodon.

The Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG) has 30 days to comply with the terms of the license before its access is terminated — forcing it to rebuild the platform or face legal action.

It's a very good thing I'm on Team Federated.

So vacation is over and begins the hybrid working model: three days a week a home and two days at the co-working space. Reasonable given the curcumstances.
