That's why I remind people to be wary of corporate support of social causes. They may speak all the right words and wear all the right colours. In fact, they do: they have whole departments dedicated to looking socially conscious. That's what it is: mimicry. An attempt to blend in.
(This season's fashion, by the way, is LGBT pride and race and gender issues. So watch out for that)
But actions speak louder than words, and in the end of the day no amount of books written or interviews given or avatars redrawn is going to help you if you're literally an evil fuck.
Like Bill Gates.
Most blockchain-based currencies have one huge problem coming.
The size of the database. It only goes up, and not down, and as adoption grows the rate of growth will only increase.
One day it will become so big, only the rich and institutional entities will be able to afford hosting a full node.
It is already happening with Ethereum.
"The hard drive space is becoming very cheap very fast" is, unfortunately, a gambler's fallacy. As a firm believer in science and technology, I love (and actually share) the optimism of Moore's law. But there are inhibiting (up to outright limiting) factors to how great and/or cheap the technology can become - both physical (like silicon atom size) and economical (the viability of production). It can't go on forever, it just can't.
Humanity, though will probably use some form of money as long as it exists - so the number of transactions is practically unlimited.
Again, we stumble upon the problem of unlimited growth in a limited system.
Накопал тут две показательных цитаты.
Одна - из "Сатанинской Библии", программного текста сатанистов Лавея.
Другая - из Библии, священного текста христиан.
Ненависть и насилие пропагандирует только одна из этих книг. Смотрите, не перепутайте.
Спешу напомнить, что лучшие описания к патчам - у Симс https://twitter.com/zloygik/status/1376478632827367428
Это дежурное напоминание о том, что работодатель, который обещает наказывать за разговоры с коллегами о зарплате, защищает только свои интересы: он хочет продолжать платить меньше части сотрудников, которые по какой-то причине стесняются оценить себя выше, или не хотят поискать другую работу и терпеливо ждут лучших времён здесь.
In case you missed it, Google Play recently removed the @Tusky Mastodon app without proper explanation.
Tusky is one of the best Android Mastodon apps, with nothing controversial in it at all. It's quite disturbing that Google can and does act like this.
An alternative and much better way of getting Tusky onto your Android device is by using the independent FOSS app store @fdroidorg
You can find instructions for installing F-Droid here: https://switching.software/replace/google-play/
I code a little, manage a little, hack a little, curse kangaroos on the roads, and overall feel like a stranger in this world.
This is a brand new server run by the main developers of the project as a spin-off of mastodon.social It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
