Laurie Spiegel in 1982 nailing down exactly how Spotify et al managed to transform an early gift economy (netlabels, napster, etc) into what we have today.

Updates from the FSF Tech Team - Ian Kelling @ FSF: fsf.org/bulletin/2020/fall/upd

I'm glad to see some more activity here! The FSF websites have been somewhat falling behind before that.

If I had known I was going to spend a year alone and not at tightly packed bars full of people wearing harnesses at chest height, I would have left my nipple rings in

From “Dark Mirror” by Barton #Gellman:

‘In 2011, I shared a stage in Silicon Valley with Google’s Eric Schmidt. He asked, “Wouldn’t you like to be able to say to your Android phone, ‘Where are my car keys?’ ” Good God, no, I told him. Maybe I’m in a casino. Maybe the bartender took my keys and I’m sleeping it off in a room upstairs, never mind whose. I’d be glad to have my phone track my life, but I don’t want you to know. Schmidt observed that my personal life was evidently more interesting than his, which I doubted, and that Android users love the way their phones hand them information before they even ask. The technology, I agreed, is marvelous. It’s like having Batman’s Alfred in my pocket, except that Alfred is not working for me. He is following me, taking notes, and sending them to you. I asked whether Schmidt could foresee a time when I could pay in cash for Google services, rather than agree to be spied on. He disputed the verb, but replied candidly. That’s not our business model, he said.’

HTML and CSS simple tips and tricks for your website. :cooldog:

The goal is to help you with easy tricks to make the HTML of your website accessible, readable by everyone and optimized for low bandwidth. I cover a LOT of things in these 20+ pages of text and I still need to add one or two more.

I'll share some parts in the next days, thanks for everyone who took time to proofread this huge beast. :tealheart: #theWorkshop

Ich sag's wie's is: Bestes Neujahr ever!

Lecker gegessen, um kurz vor 22 Uhr eingepennt, keine Vollpfosten mit Böllern und Raketen, keine Alkoholleichen, keine eskalierenden Nachbarn, endlich mal wieder ausgeschlafen ❤️

Bitte jedes Jahr so.

The EU Commission just dropped the Digital Markets Act proposal, the first major update to EU Internet regulation of the 21st century. It's...pretty good, actually, though there's room for improvement. eff.org/deeplinks/2020/12/eus- #DMA

Wer verstehen will, wie es zum #Brexit gekommen ist oder wie die Briten generell so ticken, kann sich jetzt das 4-teilige Radiofeature „Brexitannia“ auf #WDR5 anhören.

Als jemand, der 3 Jahre in Großbritannien gelebt hat, kann ich sagen: So ist es. Ich bin schon sehr auf Folge 3 gespannt. Oh, Folgen 3 und 4 sind auch schon online!

@sir Why was the source code annotation removed from Sourcehut? Asking because I saw github.com/matsumonkie/izuna and I thought it could be made to work without an extension on Sourcehut.

I'm trying to understand how NixOS works, with limited success.

I don't understand how to run a service from default.nix and or shell.nix, any hints?
