"What happened to my JavaScript phone?" by Garann Means

Great talk. You could also call this "What happened to my open-source/hackable phone?" Maybe someday the smartphone market will stabilize to the point where the geeks can take it back.

I'd like to see an UI that allowsone of these coupled with cheap VR glasses and a gamepad gloves to be used for development.

Basically a glorified shell interface for 360 degree display.

Used in conjunction with VPSs.

Clever UI solutions could make this effective development machine for developing markets?

Email has many flaws, but it's the last, strongest part of the non-centralised Internet we have left. We should promote and support it for that reason.

So apparently the CCP regularly executes Falun Gong and Uyghurs to harvest their organs:

We need to put a full (progressively imposed) embargo in place, so that there can be a revolution in China and that these Crimes against Humanity can be prosecuted. Just disgusting

@TBF Why can't the stupid Netflix "app" just use the letters on the numpad as in T9??

@utf8equalsX oh I have thought up two better systems:
A: imagine 12 boxes with 12 symbols withIn each = 144 symbols and never over 2 keypresses. With T9 it's 3-4 presses and you have to wait if you want to press the same twice:

Have ideas for practical chorded typing (>200wpm) and models for gamepad that in its simplest shape beats "cursor QWERTY" already

I do this fulltime and publish open source, any help means a lot!

Exactly what I have been obsessing over for years now.

@diem25leipzig It's called job market for a reason! Do you seriously not understand how supply and demand works or are you just pretending to be stupid?

Go and help a refugee in real life instead of insulting unemployed people. If you have a job, donate a sizeable chunk instead of promising away other people's money.

I will stop here with #Gab by removing the block feature inside the app in the next release.

My motivations:

- I didn't receive a reply from Google policy team about a potential ban of the application.
- Without the previous risk, I clearly think that's not my role. I can't hard-code instance blocks especially when every tools are here for that.
- If you want a strong block, it's in the hands of social network developers or your admins.

Thank you.

In these polarized times, it makes an important statement: that users should be free to choose who they listen to, and that we are all human and can share the benefits of wonderful free software like #fedilab

Space filling fractals can be used to efficiently display sorted data in 2d or 3d. Same technique is used in GPU:s to decrease cache misses by increasing locallity.

@Gargron So we're siding with google and apple on this one? Isn't mastodon about getting away from huge company control?

Are there alternatives to big-tech that is not lead by spineless whimps?

@szbalint @chebra Just goes to show how weak your grasp of logic is. Anti-Semitism is not a a disease that spreads via air.

What sickens me is that you do not stop to consider that those doing the violence and blocking against dissidents might be wrong.

And where will the ostracized and wrongfully accused go when blocked from the mainstream?

Only because of virtue-signaling people with no sense of principles that can't even argue against systematic murder.
