I don’t have time to watch the video now, but might later tonight. Was curious though if you have heard of Kevin Muir? He’s an old institutional trader from RBC and then hedge funds. He got into to MMT, despite being a gold fan and a generally principled trader. Thanks for sharing, hope to catch it later.


Way to go 9.0, it’s wrapping now.


Most of that seems whiny and one-sided but I admire they back up the donations complaint

We don’t accept any form of financial donations or sponsorship, allowing us to remain 100% independent and self-funded.

Donations are not bad when done correctly and for all I know they are backed by some special interest but I appreciate the lack of hypocrisy in this regard.


A poorly explained update to its terms of service has pushed WhatsApp users to adopt alternative services

This language has appeared in many articles. Perhaps the poorly explained part is that the damage was already done around 2016 in terms of linking phone number to FB advertising platform


I would agree. I use Pass but I’m just barely pgp literate enough to make it work across all devices.

BW is open source, viewable here: https://github.com/bitwarden

edit: I wasn’t aware of a microsoft dependency… shows I shouldn’t make recommendations on hearsay

here is an update in their github issue for adding a non-MS option

This is on our product roadmap for work by our team in 2021.

As someone who’s family came through Canada, I’ve always been self-conscious about the term and usually use the more awkward from US, but I think a campaign would be stupid and would likely end up with some PR marketing agency brand. Just call it what you want.


Well one thing is certain, not doing anything about it (Like the simple workaround below) will mean death to the 32 bit Chromim based platforms, for which there is a huge user base. So… Good news for Firefox, yes?

This reminded me of a conclusion I reached in:

“Google wants to do away with third-party cookies and replace it with something worse”

if you’re in Chrome you’ll be signed in to Chrome across all your devices I would assume. wouldn’t it be convenient if Google doesn’t fund mozilla in 2022 and the only safe browsers left are Chrome and Safari.

I need to think about how they might be related



I don’t like to be political because it’s basically two wings of same wretched bird but this new admin is composed of grade A fisa mocksters, so I don’t see the trend reversing.

I expect that providers like Ecosia and DDG will find it harder to survive with this law in place than google will (they have less negotiating power and less money for lawyers than google and bing).

Ecosia is not a search engine, its a bing front end that skims ad revenue.


it seems pretty googlely on the face of it but that isn’t everything in and of itself

it’s a good question, I don’t know if any of the great minds of search have tried to do something decentralised and what kind of pushback it might receive from the search cartel. It seems like ipfs and peertube might be some fertile grounds for researching it further.


That reminds me, when is Facebook leaving the EU? https://lemmy.ml/post/40702

Silva denies that her statement was a threat. “It’s a reality,” she said, clarifying that pulling Search in the country is the “worst case scenario.”


education on energy use, better renewable energy sources, and forbidding people from doing things like mining cryptocurrency

Hopefully, but how do you avoid a household running A/C, the dryer, washer, etc even some amount more that seems reasonable but on aggregate is a major burden? It would be ironic to me if magic free energy machines made water and freon more expensive.


My question was sparked by wondering if I should wait to run the washing machine until I have a bigger load and momentarily thought it would be nice to not worry about it, but then realised it’s not just the electricity but the water too. So I now it’s unclear to me how to govern use if not through artificial scarcity.


If a given free, clean energy was piped into your city and home, how would you use it?

Knowing that this would likely put a strain on other resources such as water and create light pollution, I am not sure what effects this would have on the planet. …


solid report.

in terms of the trust and reputation systems discussion, I fall into the cynical camp and don’t like the idea of building a durable profile for analytic purposes.

this economic disincentives idea seems appealing and would like to read more about it

another way to prevent spam and unwanted content is to make it computationally or financially expensive to produce.


It seems like the military industrial complex won’t be satisfied until every public office has a personal armoured surveillance swat vehicle with subsidies and training from federal agencies.

a frightening reminder of how technology originally developed for use by the military or intelligence services, ranging from blast-armored trucks designed for use in war zones to invasive surveillance tools, keeps trickling down to domestic police and even the institutions where our kids go to learn.

The Gizmodo reporters found some school districts that had spent up to $12,000 on the tech, which was designed for use in war zones

In March 2020, the North East Independent School District, a largely Hispanic district north of San Antonio, wrote a check to Cellebrite for $6,695 for “General Supplies.”


I am also curious about this, another case could be if the mod deletes their account. I wonder if there should be a captched request mod function which auto accepts if no response is given in 72 or 120 hours. Another option obviously is to create birders or birdlife but that might not be the first thought for new bird enthusiasts.

What language are you thinking in when reading Lemmy?

For example, I know a tiny bit of French from school, and when I read something like: “Le Brexit, une longue et difficile séparation”, I automatically translate it to English. For non-native English speakers, are you translating Lemmy into another language to think or do think in multiple languages?..



Ungoogled Chromium on flathub

This might not be an official version or a true “degoogle”, but, as a firefox user who needs to use chromium from time to time, was happy to see an apparently maintained version that can run on rhel. …

Safari appears not to accept new CSP on iphone ios

Since the new CSP (great work btw) I have not been able to connect on iOS and was able to do a free cross-browser test on lambdatest dot com. It shows that the websocket api does not show in the CSP directive (see attached screenshots). It basically looks like you would need to modify the connect-sr…
