The web wasn't lost by people posting baby pictures to Facebook. The web was lost when Google leveraged market dominance to enact a complete abrogation of web standards -- since the HTML 'standard' is now a 'Living Document,' the standard is "do whatever Chrome does," which is an unattainable goal.

There are four voting members of WHATWG. Two of them use Google's web rendering engine. A third is entirely financially dependent on Google. The other one is Apple. Who speaks for you? Nobody.

> The word priority came into the English language in the 1400s. It was singular. It meant the very first or prior thing. It stayed singular for the next five hundred years. Only in the 1900s did we pluralize the term and start talking about priorities. Illogically, we reasoned that by changing the word we could bend reality. Somehow we would now be able to have multiple “first” things. This gave the impression of many things being the priority but actually meant nothing was. Greg Mckeown

With the US mulling the decision to ban , we should also consider banning and because they essentially do the same thing: piss all over your privacy while allowing you to be "connected" to people that atrophy helped you get rid of long ago.

Oh, wait, American companies that spy on people are okay and acceptable. It is different when the Chinese do it.

Finally getting ready to delete my Google and Discord accounts! Been meaning to do this for *months* now...

Touring my Project Tricarbon, a set of Cimple Compiler Components (you try finding a fun name for SC2). Shown is a JIT that goes from LIMN1k machine code to RISC-V, and then translates that to AMD64 and runs it :)

We should make a "instantly destroy the world" button, and give it to the most miserable human being alive.

This might incentivize us to stop making miserable fucking people, eh?

If the fileformat your app saves in isn't an open standard that is documented you should be ashamed of yourself

@piggo @karen apple patented slide to unlock but I found a precedent.

You shouldn't be able to just add "on a computer" to create a new patent.

"Good to hear. You may pass."
