I thoroughly enjoyed this Fosdem talk on "why are there 16 colors" by John Hall. Nice blast from the past.
My first contact ever with home made software was a friend whose cousin had made some bat files wrapping arj to pack and unpack things across several floppies. It was a finicky bat script that you had to apply in just the right order. If bat files count as programming♥
Then later on my mom learned to hack autoexec and basic stuff it was awesome♥♥
I like @protonmail a fair bit, but the mobile app experience isn't fantastic. I really want to just use native apps. Since I can't run bridge on my mobile device... Anybody have an experience misusing the Bridge software to allow connections from other devices (such as my phone)? I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be comfortable exposing the Bridge IMAP and SMTP ports to the Internet directly, but perhaps through a VPN?
This excellent post (cough... rant... cough...) is why I'm so excited about the Gemini project. It's a fresh state. It's got a well defined scope. It's fun. It's simple. It's privacy forward. Yay!
New blog up and running. Finally. With lots of room for future me to add some useful content. Someday.
The modern web is terrible - the small web is better. Gemini will save us all! https://share.tube/videos/watch/6f1e8d45-15ac-4eed-b19a-dc31a9791d6b

This alternative to Keybase is worth checking out. A decentralized way of providing verifiable social proofs. >> shardiame - Keyoxide
One interesting up and coming alternative to Keybase (for some uses anyways) // keys.pub - Cryptographic key management, sigchains, user identities, signing, encryption, password manager, FIDO2 | keys.pub
I am so pumped by the #tildeverse . It reminds me of the old days with BBSes and shell accounts. I miss those days and the smaller communities.
Matrix/Element frustrates me because it's laggy and awful.
Telegram because it is too centralized.
IRC because the mobile experience is bleh.
XMPP seems amazing (specifically Conversations) but I have nobody to talk to.
I need to start looking for friends based on their supported messaging platform.
"I like you. I really do. But I just don't think we can be friends because you don't support my current favourite messenger platform."
