I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, every major power is going to copy China and there’s not much one can do about it, their policies really have been far-sighted. But you shouldn’t see data collection as a political tool, you see, the EU is behind in AI and since practically of the EU’s personal data is stored in the US (because they all use GAFA), they can’t train their models properly. China created the firewall, blocked GAFA (and of course political threats), and developed their own domestic Internet industry; now China is ahead in AI facial and speech recognition. There’s a EU Commission paper that proposes a European firewall that functions like the Chinese version because they know they will fall behind. In the US they already have the “Clean Network” and they’re going to block TikTok and WeChat.

The great thing about decentralisation is that if you don’t like this lemmy instance, you can always set up one yourself and make your own rules.

Don’t forget YaCy, a libre decentralised search engine, I think that’s the most important project of all. Just understand how much trust we put on search engines then realise how dangerous they are if proprietary

It terrifies me how much control and influence GAFA has on the entire global market. If Google really wanted to be sinister, they’d make this VPN both free and enabled by default on Android.

I’m sorry but who names their app “QuickDic” lol

bashtop looks a lot prettier than glances

I still don’t understand why people buy Apple products. I understand Macbooks because there’s GarageBand, but maybe that was acceptable 5 years ago.

Am I the only one that hopes for a second Trump term just to accelerate American imperial decline?

DDG is a search engine run on AWS, so it’s not very private. It’s better to use Qwant (a French search engine that has its own dedicated servers), or, if you can, YaCy which is a peer-to-peer search engine.

Two Three features are needed:

  1. MathJax for TeX typesetting
  2. Selecting a comment as the correct answer
  3. Flairs/tags

I doubt you will find one that tolerates copyright infringement on their site.

Just stop eating at McDonald’s for breakfast and KFC for lunch. Personally, I would still eat meat but I am trying to restrict myself to getting good quality meat at the butcher’s shop. If I want protein, I’ll just get eggs.

Alternative to Stack Exchange

I want to know if there are other specialised Q&A sites (and not general-purpose like Quora). I feel Stack Exchange has a monopoly in this domain. Since it’s both hosted in the US and its business model is not very clear (look at the trackers they have on their site), I want to avoid using it to ask…

XMPP for IM, Matrix for team collaboration

Browsing Facebook without Facebook account

I need to look through a Facebook group but I don’t want to use a Facebook account. I want to know if there’s an open-source service like Bibliogram (Instagram) but for Facebook…
