do you ever run into a site that's so terrible, but you're forced to use it, and you just want to make a new frontend and give it to them for free to get rid of it

Folks making alternatives: don’t recreate the systems of closed, centralised silos. They’re designed with the needs and success criteria of closed, centralised organisations. You cannot compete with them on their own terms. They have the resources to create centralised workflows, you do not. And your success criteria are the opposite of theirs. You do not want to centralise information, power, and wealth. Think about where your strengths lie and design from first principles according to those.

Zoom class action in the US:

"Zoom denies these allegations, denies any liability whatsoever, and believes that no member of the Settlement Class, including the Plaintiffs, has sustained any damages or injuries due to these allegations."

However, here is 85 million USD so you shut up about it and so we don't have to demonstrate that "end-to-end encryption" is actually not "end-to-end encryption".

Not getting any coding done because GitHub is down? Why not take the opportunity to check out Codeberg (codeberg.org/), Gitea (gitea.com/) or GitLab (about.gitlab.com/install/)

Are there any #ActivityPub or #MastoDev people around here who can explain/point to a source in something approximating plain language how the Mastodon remote follow functionality works? The Ruby code is a like trying to read hieroglyphs for me.

Context: I'm interested in whether something similar can be implemented for @bookwyrm, preferably in a software-neutral way (i.e. remote follow from Misskey or Pleroma or Mastodon etc)

Boosts welcome.

I recently learned that #WebComponents are a thing now. If I'm reading this right, it means #HTML integrates way more tightly with #JavaScript now. Sites without JavaScript are already pretty rare already and this will make them even more rare. So maybe it's time to accept that the #www has mutated from information retrieval into some sort of terminal system for connecting to megacorps. and we'll need to start looking for or maybe creating alternative protocols.

Folks, please. Stop assuming that it's okay to introduce advanced features to Linux desktops that a normal user won't understand because "only geeks use Linux anyway". Believe it or not, even within the "geeks", there will be those who don't understand these concepts because they were simply never interested in them, and are therefore completely excluded.

Be inclusive. Design software that is simple, easy, and intuitive to use. Software that doesn't require a PhD to know how to use it.

As you noticed the 25 minutes downtime turn into good couple of hours. At the end we had to restore from backup. :(
