USPOL results 

It's great that the media is calling it for Biden.
I'm not buying it until the lawsuits are over, and there is enough margin in the electoral college to account for some faithless electors.

@jwildeboer Twitter or the media "calling it" does not make it over. Let them count the votes. Just a couple more days before the lawsuits begin in earnest.

I wonder, for the people that want to get rid of the electoral college: Some states have marginalized voters because of a presumption of going for one party or the other. (NY, NJ, CA, MS, AL etc) Instead of eliminating the electoral college, why not get rid of "winner take all" in those states, and make candidates work for every one of those electoral votes? It could make those districts in the middle of the spectrum, even in otherwise decided states, worth fighting for.

Ugh, misspelled Boonton. I lived there for years, I'm just not as good with a mobile phone keyboard.

Everything is so DRM'd to hell that I still have a wall of CDs. No DRM, no telemetry, just music. Perhaps there's something to be learned from the beautiful simplicity of a CD.

@killyourfm I have a question about your last L4E podcast. You expressed dismay about the Linux community, but seemed mostly focused on the YouTube comments. Is this exclusively the venue that you are judging the wider Linux community by? If you answered this in the podcast, I apologize, I must have missed it. But I hope that you don't judge all of us by comments on YouTube, or Reddit, or even here. There's more to it than that.

Not sure of the panorama works here, if not I'll delete.

I wonder why they're concerned about tech companies but not internet service providers and the 5 television network monopolies. Tech companies must not be paying enough in bribes.

@cassolotl A while ago, you made a nice, succinct flowchart of Mastodon timeline behavior. May I use it in a Fediverse presentation? (For a LUG, at least at first.) What license, if I may redistribute?

@sir this.

Also, this is a great talk with practical examples of why one should not talk to the police: youtube.com/watch?v=d-7o9xYp7e
