If literally everybody stops donating to Mozilla, they will do just fine due to contracts with Google.

"Web 3.0" applications built on platforms like ETH cannot offer anything for free since distributed validation is based on corresponding cryptocurrency PoW scheme.

And so I made another project public, but not on GitHub - instead it is git.hexanet.dev, our own gitea server. Right now it is not complete, but I guess I will need to learn the art of telling people about cool stuff I made instead of relying on GitHub to get somebody there via their "discovery" thing.

(Finally I realized, this wasn't to enforce an anti fascist agenda, it was all about control)

I think all the Mastodon instance admins should write an open letter to Google to complain about this.

And promote F-droid at the same time.

This is related to points I made about distributed ledgers before. There are thousands of problems people think they can solve but in reality they cannot.

When Mastodon will support Markdown formatting?

FYI PayPal stopped processing in-country money transfers in Russia. This is due to protectionistic law that went in effect and it does not affect international transfers. You can still donate to ~~The Church of St. Deering~~ me using paypal.me/foxcpp

Simple, consistent, orthogonal.
That's how feature sets of good programming languages are described.

Android 10 removed the ability to change permissions for system applications. And more small steps Google is making to take away your freedom. Get a Pinephone.

Google search box on Android unconditionally uses Chrome if it is installed. It fallbacks to browser set as default only if Chrome is not installed.

Google Play bypasses "background data" restriction for some downloads. Traffic is counted as foreground even though it is definitely background.

Google Play keeps ignoring all settings and downloads Chrome updates over mobile data. After I disable Chrome. Time to degooglify this shitphone.

Verification scheme for blockchain can only use data from blockchain. This leads to another important point about distributed ledgers: Verified information is fundamentally required to be public.

Blockchain does not work without a verification scheme. You cannot just throw things into ledger and distribute it, assuming it will be completely secure.

Privacy is not built on trust, it's built on MATH

Articles like this make me think only HTML and CSS are acceptable GUI technologies in today's IT world.

Article mentions the trouble of JS stack and then proceeds to ignore the complexity of proposed solution that is much worse than using an adequate GUI toolkit.
