>Russian lawmakers passed the first reading of legislation Tuesday that would allow Moscow to disconnect Russia from the global Internet.

>The proposal is to create an alternative domain name system to protect the Russian-language section of the Internet, in case it becomes disconnected from the global Internet.

How are you seeing this? A threat?

@ja_nishat It's an interesting idea, and I think it's entirely possible, but someone will have to release a product that makes self hosting easy. I picture a small device, maybe in the form factor of one of the Google Home Hubs (just in form) that will automatically interface with a registrar to setup the necessary internet stuff. Then there would need to be an easy migration integrated for hardware upgrades (similar to smart phones). Then all services would run on the single device.

I think self-hosting is the future of internet.
I dream of a future where everyone hold and backup their own internet data.
Does it sound realistic? what you guys think?

systemd is so controversial because it's short for "system dog", and a lot of linux folks are cat people

It’s weird that adults think cops are normal people when the first thing a kid does if you give him a police costume is start hitting someone who’s done nothing wrong and then deny it despite visual evidence

Hello Mastodon people! I'm new and very excited to be here!
I like the idea of how computing and now even social networking (thanks to mastodon) can be done better using open source ideology.
I'm a science enthusiast(esp. physics) and a mechanical engineering major, and always try to adopt open source ideology into my working field and academia.
I also think, science and education in general is done better through open source models.

I am excited to be on mostodon. What cool things can I do here, folks?
