What happens when you have only one ISP, that ISP happens to own HBO, and national net neutrality protections don't exist? Things like this. gizmodo.com/what-did-we-say-ab

@PINE64 do you have a blog post about the technical aspects of the cluster?

How does the Qt Company manage to send me a newsletter every single day?

The AAP is suing the Internet Archive for their distribution of books (which is even more prominent with expanded access during the coronavirus). [1](publishers.org/news/publishers)

Overall, I just don't get the concept of "owning" an idea, writing, or work.

The biggest obstacle to a shift in view on this is the economy. Instead of using advances to allow everyone to meet a basic livelihood and promote the free sharing of creative works, we just create artificial markets. It's just fake.

The good thing for Zoom is that their major goal of acquiring expertise in security/privacy is fulfilled with getting the people at Keybase, not the current users.

I went ahead and deleted my account, but I'm wondering what the plan is there. Will they work on Zoom completely separated from the current Keybase platform? Or somehow integrate Zoom into their public cryptography system? I'm imagining E2EE on Zoom which is facilitated by key sharing via Keybase

@sir what do you think about email wrapped to 76 characters instead of 72?

Any suggestions for simple & ethical platforms for online forms?

Trying to keep to free software during this time of remote work. Unrelated to work, but managed to get a gaming group to use Jitsi Meet for voice instead of Discord. The struggle was real convincing them it was a good idea

Interesting article about some further problems in the Chernobyl series: forbes.com/sites/michaelshelle

(take with a grain of salt, this is from a pro-nuclear lobbyist. His points are still valid, particularly the figures about casualties at the end, and the misinformed claims that people that are irradiated become radioactive, or the part about the fetus saving the mom from radiation)

The internet used to be a city: it had its weird bohemian districts, its flea markets, its high-rises and back alleys. Now it's just a shopping mall, and I miss my old city so much
