«Some people believe that they deserve whatever wealth they have got. They don't want to share, because why should they? They have worked hard to earn their wealth and others can just do the same. But this is wrong.

Whether you believe in coincidence, luck or God, the fact is that your hard work or clever business strategy is not the cause behind your wealth. Rather it is circumstances far beyond your control.»

@wilw The reason Google tried to kill off RSS is because they consider any kind of "index, directory, or data structure that makes the web organized and easier to access a thread to their business model.

Google wants to be the only gateway into the information, and so RSS had only downside risk for them.

Now, in 2021, everyone should be using RSS as much as possible to help eliminate dependency on BigTech, and some day even create a fully semantic web.

Today we reached 1000 followers in the fediverse.

Thank you for your interest and your support.

And never forget:
Do not trust corporate social media. When reach is important to you, remember to not put to much of that control into a single point of failure.
The fediverse mitigates this risk by developing a federated infrastructure allowing even accounts to migrate from one server to the other.

Brazilian company Microdigital announces its version of the British Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48k (eighties flyer below).
The TK 90X was a success. I learnt how to command a 🐢 using its LOGO language implmentation and, then, how to program in BASIC. A kid's dream.
