Don’t ever let anyone tell you that the government can’t afford to pay workers to stay at home for long enough to achieve when they managed to find £17bn for their corporate mates.

A piece of #internet #art #history is about to stop. I'm amazed it's still going. But Scott Draves, creator of "Electric sheep", can't maintain the project anymore. After 21 years, he is willing to pass it on to someone else, or shut it down.

If you think you can help, contact scottdraves.com

(PS: it's not about the money, it's about time and management. Scott does not have the time to maintain it anymore.)

I gave a try a couple of days ago and I now got a instance running at home, connecting two computers and a phone. I am very impressed with it and planning to take it to the next level soon. I hope our Internet service provider has not closed gates to the actual Internet when they ended net neutrality.

Thank you @yunohost, for taking self-hosting to the masses :)

Blogs stop serving RSS, feed readers aren't maintained, etc. It is not coincidence that Google discontinued its Reader product, with the following message on their page: "We understand you may not agree with this decision, but we hope you'll come to love these alternatives as much as you loved Reader." In fact, Google has been simplifying web activities all along. Cory Arcangel in 2009:

> After Google simplified the search, each subsequent big breakthrough in net technology was something that decreased the technical know-how required for self-publishing (both globally and to friends). The stressful and confusing process of hosting, ftping, and permissions, has been erased bit by bit, paving the way for what we now call web 2.0.

True, alternative do exists, but they become more and more fringe. Graham seems to be right when he says that most user will go for less work. Generally, heteronomous convenience means less work than autonomous convenience, as the maximum amount of decisions is taken by the system in place of the user. Furthermore, heteronomous convenience dramatically influences the perception of the work required by autonomous convenience. Nowadays, the process of collecting RSS feeds URLs *appears* tragically tedious if compared to Twitter's seamless "suggestions for you". :workstation:

A notification just popped up saying I got rehearsals tomorrow and day after, at some place in Narahenpita. Dang. These now look like schedules made in a previous life. :-/

This is a calculated and conscious effort at expanding militarism and establishing a dictatorship. Taking this as sloppy governance, "mechanism run by wrong people", mismanagement or ignorance etc is a mistake.
