Tech company that made their project open source need to compete with the proprietary alternative without stressing that they are open source.

"We are open source" has to be like a cherry on the cake for the user.

Mastodon, Barinsta, Joplin, Newpipe, these are few softwares i use on daily basis that are open source, and made me feel they are better over the proprietary alternatives, even if they are not open source.

Comment down the software you feel it is too good and open source.

Recently i have been using telegram alongside signal.

I find telegrams channel feature has the potential to be everything.

- You can post a microblog.
- You can post high res images
- You can post videos with 2gb a file.
- You can share links to your articles.
- You can add comments functionality.
- You have the freedom of speech.
- Unlimited cloud storage.

The only question is How long it can sustain with the growing user base. If it can, i guess it can be the next revolutionary platform.

Our #mind is sacred. It enables us to imagine. Imagination leads to ideas. As people exchange and improve ideas, solutions are born. Solutions make a better world.

Certain #socialmedia already took self-control away from many, reducing meaningful exchange of our ideas. Now, #metaverse seeks to quash the sanctility of our minds by allowing corporations to freely manipulate our imagination.

Take back our mind before it is too late. There will be no better world for us if we cannot imagine one!

I am searching for curriculums to learn about the subject "computer networks" If anybody by chance know about any resource to look please suggest.

more like an index for the subject is what i want.

Have you ever got irritated with in-app advertisements, like pop-up ads, banners at the bottom.

Well there is a work around to get rid of most of them.
1. Clear cache and app data
2. Disable data for google play services.

Most of OEMs provide option to disable data for google play services, If not you need to use a firewall.

Try this and comment your OEM and if this trick worked for you or not.

This works because most of apps use google ad sense, and google uses play services to fetch ads.

Is there an open source alternative for android web view

Decentralised/Distributed/Federated/Centralised :blobfoxthinking:

As You are a user of Mastodon, you might be quite familiar with the concept of decentralisation and federation.

In simple words decentralisation lets you store your data in your own server or choose a serv
Federation lets you connect with all the individual servers in a decentralised network.
In Centralisation everything stays on the server owned by a single corp.
In distributed you owns a copy of your data locally.

correct me!
