There's these studies about how once you commit to an opinion in front of someone you're less willing to back down from it even in the face of new insights; and online in 2018 has this culture where people rush to comment on everything that happens as fast as possible, you know? Is that a good combination?

I've started feeling a kind of slight revulsion at the phrase "hot take" because it's like you're specifically signaling that it's rushed, not thought out, possibly lacking nuance, and you're proud of it.

This is not a subtoot, I've been sitting on this sentiment for at least a week

#amazon spies on people other than those who buy its bugs (listening devices), i.e. it records people without any consent. #facebook does the same through its Web site, browser cookies, uploaded photos etc. Legislators don't seem particularly bothered by such crimes.

I'm surprised how easy it was to install a personal hubzilla instance on nearlyfreespeech.net, and it seems to be working quite well. It's true that I stayed up half the night "working" on it, but that was mostly just about needing to research various issues so I wouldn't end up doing something wrong - things that to other people with more experience would have been plain-sailing. There are still a couple of things to sort out, like permissions, cron and theme changes. NFS.net limits cronjobs to once an hour, though, on the other hand, posts seem to be coming in more frequently than that, so I don't quite get it.

One thing that took me a while to realize is that despite hubzilla's ability to clone instances, people outside of hubzilla need to be resubscribed to the new instance.

I might have some forum questions later, but till now, I didn't need to ask anybody's advise on anything.
