I remember one of the things that motivated me to look into the state of decentralized social media (and ultimately begin working on Mastodon) in 2016 were talks that a controversial billionaire might buy Twitter.

I am long time user of Signal but decided to give @threemaapp a try too 🤓 Not that I need a replacement but because I like paying for nice apps 😊

As now finally supports Mermaid.js there is really no further stoppers to use them everywhere 🤓 I've got to know this great plain text (therefore easy to version on ) diagramming library by Knut Sveidqvist when using @gitea for @inretio needs and liked it a lot to use also with (via plugin) for daily notes. Highly recommend!

When greed undermines culture, disasters happen. At Boeing it literally happened two times with passenger aircraft 737 MAX killing hundreds. Senior management was only interested in stock prices - those criminals cut costs in engineering, quality assurance and training. Yet instead of jail time CEO Dennis Muilenburg walks away with $62.2m in stock and pension awards. He is back in industry now. This is outrageous. :netflix: "Downfall"

As co-founder Daniel Ek invested 9 figures EUR into defence startup Helsing and continues to host misinformation by Joe Rogan exclusively paying him 100m USD, it's time to leave this and platform for good. Highly encourage to esp. if you pay for Premium subscription.

Canonical, maker of #Ubuntu basically advertising for NFTs as some of it uses Ubuntu Core 🤦🤦gross.


It may not be them doing it directly, but that's a pretty clear NFT endorsement.

Did the folks at Canonical really think this through? Too busy seeing ££ signs perhaps? NFTs are shite, stop it.

Interesting to know: Corsair acquired Scuf Gaming, leader in performance console controllers, in 2019 which has a large portfolio of patents around rear paddles and trigger technology. XBOX Elite series controllers are licenced from Scuf Gaming :xbox_one_controller:

Love European electronics 🇪🇺 ❤️ Perfect way to start journey with console Gamebuino META from France 🇫🇷 Powered by the same chip (ATSAMD21) as Arduino Zero but also having LED screen, audio, lights and controls out-of-the-box. And the note in is simply adorable 😊

While we used the original chips for the TinyNES to keep that nostalgic feel, for other components we modernized the process. Read about how we replaced the traditional crystal clock system with an MEMS oscillator & other tweaks in the latest update: crowdsupply.com/tall-dog-elect

Is there a way to add multiple audio feeds for single @peertube video? :peertube:

I've been very critical of "web3" over on 🐦 recently: twitter.com/ilikebeans.

On @matt@write.as, I wrote about how the #fediverse, if anything, seems like the closest thing we have to a true "web3" (without blockchaining all the things): write.as/matt/what-would-a-rea

XBOX turns 20 years :xbox: For this great occation virtual 3D museum was created that works in browser, check it out 👍 museum.xbox.com/share/XNRJCzb8

"Software projects should only be estimated in days, weeks, months or years.

Not a specific number of weeks, mind you. Just saying "It'll take weeks" or "It's months worth of work" is as good as it gets."

An interesting take on and this whole fuss about and 👍 While I do adore behind BTC and ETH and latest enhancement of appending transactions with additional metadata (even multimedia files) to make - just as with all impementations need to choose right tools for right problems. There is simply no chance ENS will ever replace DNS - let's be realistic. usenix.org/publications/logino
