It's pretty cool that the creators of Assassin's Creed are allowing free downloads of their game with the model of Notre Dame so that people can experience it.

It would be cooler if they released a Blender file as open source.

Thought: If Siddhartha Gautama had lived today, the Noble Eightfold Path would totally have been turned into a click-bait listicle.

How long until we can implement local/edge-focused peer-to-peer serverless computing? It seems like WASM + WiFi + parallelization of tasks could replace at least some computing needs.

Today's small action to resist creeping fascism: When you see a surveillance camera on the street, take a moment to make sure its location is recorded in OpenStreetMap.

Dear coffee shop wifi splash page, no you do not need my phone number and you sure as SHIT don't need my birthday.

What exactly does the Mastodon search bar search through? Particularly if you live on a single-person instance as I do?

The Webassembly System Interface is a REALLY cool development. I'm very curious to see where it leads and what it enables.

Yunno what I'd like to see: A new .well-known standard where sites can indicate that they waive link tax rights, and perhaps indicate whether they will link to sites that do not also waive theirs.
For the upload filters, let's just hope that people actually make noise when the filters start fucking with them.

I wrote a thing about why I believe the best and most useful decentralized applications are going to be the ones that utilize multiple protocols. I imagine a world where ActivityPub, Dat, and Secure ScuttleButt are all seen as tools in a toolbox rather than as ecosystems, and what kind of amazing software we could build with them outside of the central/corporate paradigm.

"As an artist that stores their art on twitter and a lot of art related sites. This troubles me deeply. Imagine if Twitter or even Youtube did this. Every video gone forever."

And just holy yikes, y'all. This gave me palpitations.

Please don't think of uploading/sharing stuff as "storing" it on any of these sites--twitter/tumblr/etc. There's no good retrieval process, you don't control compression, etc. It's nice to access stuff one's shared for resharing but not storage.

Standing at a bus stop on 16th St in , watching waves of cars go by, many of them SUVs, each with a single person in them. Hard to be optimistic about the planet some days.

Whenever baking instructions say "place in the middle of the oven", I take a second to acknowledge this deep mystery of the universe: has anyone ever found the middle of the oven? Every oven I've ever owned has holding racks only slightly above and below.

Just learned about #Pattle, a new #Android #Matrix client which behaves similar to many popular messaging apps like Telegram or Signal. A important step to mass adoption. git.pattle.im/pattle/android
