Looks like Airtel India blocked DuckDuckGo. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I don't know why people are talking about needing a "decentralised federated code hosting software". Git already does that. Have you ever heard of "git-send-email" and "git-request-pull"? I think you should read the Git manual first before demanding a decentralised and federated code hosting software.

@lanodan @portpupper @sir I think though, the problem is essentially that programmers do not have Taste. Most artists grow up seeing Good Art, and strive to emulate it, and then later on experiment with that and develop their own Style. We don't have that (And if you're asking why I'm comparing to art, it's because ultimately programming is a majorly creative endeavour -- see Knuth's ACM piece for an argument on that).

It's like seeing the pre-Renaissance paintings where literally nobody had any idea of what Perspective is, and the parts of the view are all over the place, but it's still considered "good", because for the time it _was_. That's basically all, programming at the moment.

@lanodan we have the absolute worst standards of any engineering discipline, we have a million poorly educated programmers using toy hammers and orbital lasers to build bridges out of popsicle sticks and children's toys out of refined uranium and everything is on fire and WHY ARE WE OKAY WITH THIS

Hello Mastodon! I'm stuck in this problem while developing a native application hoping somebody would help me get a perspective.

If Facebook can do this to Tails, imagine what it can do with Whatsapp on Android?

If you haven't watched Aral Balkan's @aral plea to the EU in regards to #decentralization, #encryption, #privacy, #security, #federation and the impact of #siliconvalley on our lives, consider watching it now. This is not just an EU issue.


It is well worth 17 minutes of your time, and right in line with this conversation. If we work together, we can help create a better internet.
