So... Mozilla fired the Servo devs. And the Security Response team.

So basically, all that's left now is palliative care for Firefox, and SaaSS for the bottom line. Raaaaaaaaah why can't you do anything right Mozilla, you're all we have left for the open web and you keep. fucking. up.

All of these fuckwits in the pocket of their oligarchs, do you only know what "monopoly" and "antitrust" mean when the companies in question are mean to you?

Coming soon to a theater near you: exclusivity under the Big Mouse!

So, who else is sad that FOSDEM will not happen this year (at least not in person)? It's my favourite part of the year, having the talks online is just not the same :(

Article from IEEE promoting 5G:

spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/te

I have two main comments on this:
Location Services section:"the network can measure the direction and angle of a beam, along with its distance from the tower"

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA why do you think this is a good thing, that sounds horrifying!!!

Private Networks section:"[5G waves]don’t travel nearly as far as traditional cell signals.[...]At those scales, 5G could function essentially like Wi-Fi networks"
Then what's the point of 5G??

If I was an AI and wanted to diss humans, this is exactly the type of thing I would write:

"Humans are very bad at communicating their feelings, so they don’t know how to explain to the other humans why they’re angry. So, instead of trying to explain, they yell and scream at the other human. But the other human doesn’t understand why they’re being yelled and screamed at. They don’t understand what they’re being accused of. And since they don’t understand, they get angry."

Best GPT-3 generated article I've seen yet:

"In conclusion, intelligence is whatever humans do, the brain is a very bad computer, consciousness is a very bad idea, emotions are based on misguided perceptions of reality, and the mind is a prison."

@ScottMortimer another fundamental difference is snap isn't actually fully open source. The server component is proprietary. I had no idea until recently, and have lost interest in snap since.
