you can’t fuck up the past but you can still change the future

Lemmy could be compared to the comment section on news sites or YouTube, with the added advantage of allowing for more interaction between users in threads that are more structured

This also means that phones need to be connected to the internet at all times, downloading stuff in the background… users are giving up control at an alarming rate

Quillnote, though syncing functionality is still experimental

I sure miss the good times, but not to forget there were plenty of bad times, too

It’s the equivalent of owning random crap in your house you never use, except it’s not in your own private space, but occupying public space that can’t be used by other people anymore since someone already “claimed” it, just because they had too much money to waste (and no social responsibility at that)

IT’S A TRAP! But it’s a good example to unmask the shadiness of subscription models in general: Once you fall for it, the scammers latch on & are hard to get rid of again.

What they’re selling here is basically a SaaS, since the earbuds simply stop working as soon as you stop paying (I doubt they got it settled legally though).

Also, one might look into Sourcehut (sr.ht)

Something like a stone on the ground can perhaps be ignorant, everything else not so much

Just look at everyone in academia using their bookshelf as Zoom background

I think we have a classical case of Stockholm syndrome here

Showing respect for someone you respected during their lifetime should be self-evident

Let’s just say it’s easier to develop feelings for someone you feel close to than for someone you don’t like

Agreed, a bad thing doesn’t have to make a good thing bad

The more development (be it good or bad), the greater the distance to “authenticity”.

Reproducing authenticity is therefore as (im)possible as undoing the development

Yeah, what if it also drains quicker than it takes to fill a petrol tank?


A generation that grew up with Google is forcing professors to rethink their lesson plans

How to share confidential information?
I'm using Signal, but after I found out that it's not as privacy-friendly as it claims, I'm uneasy about sharing my address there. I trust the person who asked for my address, but not the service. What's a safe way to share? I was thinking of something like a self-destructing pastebin, but surely you have better ideas.
