I made a new bot ! It uses ✨machine learning✨ (aka black magic) to generate famous paintings, in the "style" of a different painter botsin.space/web/accounts/6824

I don’t agree with everything in this post about the new European copyright law, but these two ideas are probably true:

- a Copyright directive should "leverage the Internet instead of fight it“
- "power on the Internet flows from controlling demand, not supply“


Wow, @better now leads the overall list of paid apps in the German Mac App Store

(By the way, I’m a happy customer for quite some time now, so, if you need a tracker blocker for Safari on iOS/macOS you should definetely take a look at it)

The effect of the release of iOS 12 on the total amount of internet traffic routed through DE-CIX in Frankfurt (Germany) is smaller than last years effect of iOS 11, but it’s still sizable

+ approx. 0.6 Tbits/s

Dass die Gesundheitsdaten in dieser neuen Vivy App Ende-zu-Ende verschlüsselt sind ist ja gut

Namen und Geburtsdaten an Zendesk & Gmail sowie Telefonnummern an Twilio weiterzugeben ist jedoch nicht gerade toll

Eigene Infrastruktur scheinen sie auch nicht zu haben und Tracker gibt’s obendrauf (AWS, Mailchimp, Zendesk, G-Suite, G Analytics, Facebook Pixel, …)

Wow! Just wow! has closed its casinos for the first time in its history because of Typhoon Mangkhut. You know something is big when even the Chinese don't want to gamble. But, you know, for a city built on risk, it seems ironic for them not to chance the storm. Wimps.

Hatte zwar nie so ein intensives Verhältnis zum Fußball wie der Autor, aber die von ihm geäußerte Frustration empfinde ich auch immer mehr


I can’t escape the feeling that parts of what happened online was hugely detrimental to the goal of avoiding the new copyright laws:

- (hyper) aggressive language
- painting a non-nuanced end-of-the-world scenario
- insulting, not arguing with proponents
- automated / non-personalized messages
- death threats
- calling and pressuring relatives

Thx for your interest!

I wanted it to be available on most (all?) OS, so it's basically a webapp, in can be run directly in the browser and/or hosted in an electron app (so Mac, Linux, Win).

(the screens I show is the electron version, but I use a web browser when working on it)

But it's still a desktop focused app, inspired by the early desktop version of tweetdeck (the old one, before twitter bought it).

And also a way for me to test some ideas when it will be "functional". 🙂

The sun shining through trees full of green (and increasingly red/brown) leafs is very beautiful

This is a reminder that people can’t fix what they don’t know about.

This reminder applies equally to companies who make the things you use, coworkers, friends, and partners.

A platform-agnostic AirDrop functionality that's pre-installed on every operating system would really be terrific
