And if there isn't, would anyone be interested in working on a project such as this?

Fedi is pretty techy, right? Many of us understand the scope and risk of big data, and how all these companies are Big Brother-ing us all.

Is there a site or something that has a list of different companies collectively known as FAANG where you can check boxes for each service or device that you use, press Go, and it tells you exactly what you are sacrificing in terms of data and privacy?

For example, you check off Android phone, Facebook app, Amazon device, Gmail account, and so on

#fediblock hey whos the admin here i find these federations problematic. first of all ive noticed a myriad of instances whereupon it was my displeasure to take notice of the fact that certain milieus have taken it upon themselves to integrate a certain vernacular within their milieu that can be perceived as referencing or otherwise indicating a pre-existing or desired social affiliation with other communities online that tend to be widely regarded within other agglomerations or otherwise associated entities considered as assemblages to have stances or perform actions further juxtaposed/contextualized by the latter communities as often overt but occasionally subtle signals (linguistic or visual) that act as a phenomenon i have taken to calling "social positioning" whereupon

I know I don't know a lot of people on here, but a lot of you are programmers and devs and techy folks.

Can anyone recommend a cool little robot or robotics kit I can use to practice JavaScript programming?

I've done a little bit of googling and discovered Sphero (seems really simple, maybe too simple) all the way to nodebots which may be a bit too technical at this point, too complicated to set up.

Any input is appreciated, and boosts are very welcome!

DUNE is spectacular.

Imagery is reminiscent of:

Beksinski +++++
Giger ++
Star Wars +++
Starship Troopers +
Bedouins/Tuareg ++++
Total Recall +++
Matrix ++

Hard to say whether these things influenced DUNE or whether DUNE influenced these things. (Well, except Bedouins/Tuareg) It's probably a cycle.

Possibly one of the greatest movies of all time.

Following in the footsteps of Microsoft and the RIAA, NFTs are fundamentally about creating the illusion of limited availability for digital goods that in reality are unlimited because they can be freely duplicated. Combined with the environmental impacts, you can see the perversion of reality that drives NFTs: they burn through finite natural resources as if they were infinite in order to create an artificial sense of scarcity for digital goods which can be easily produced in abundance.

Probably the world's best vocalist, Dimash. Like the alien opera singer on the movie The 5th Element.

Jump to 49s, you'll see what I mean. Godlike range.
