Universal Basic Income (UBI): A History
Basic income is a concept that has existed in various forms, under various names, since the days of the Enlightenment. Political economist Philipe Van Parijs defined basic income as “an income paid by a government, at a uniform level and at regular intervals, to each adult member of society. The grant is paid, and its level is fixed, irrespective of whether the person is rich or poor, lives alone or with others, is willing to work or not.”
>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.
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.
a really good book it seems... gotta read.
