Anyone else seeing this? I made a comment that included "joinmastodon.org" and got this from Facebook.

pamiętacie jak USA zabiło dronem terrorystów IS-K zamieszanych w ataki na lotnisku w Kabulu? to nie byli oni tylko pracownik organizacji humanitarnej. wiózł nie bomby tylko wodę dla rodziny. oprócz niego eksplozja zabiła 2 dorosłych i 7 dzieci które podbiegły się z nim przywitać

If any socialist nation handled covid the way way US did, then the media would be telling us that socialism is an utter failure. Yet, when nearly 700k people die under capitalism we're simply supposed to accept that nothing better was possible.

"Why did the web take over desktop and not mobile?" by Gordon Brander subconscious.substack.com/p/wh

A bit depressing, but feels accurate. Maybe the web's moment to be successful on mobile has come and gone. Maybe if Firefox OS had launched years earlier and been more like KaiOS. Maybe if WebOS had been a success. Maybe if Blackberry had pivoted to webapps. Maybe maybe maybe… But right now it seems impossible for a third competitor to iOS/Android to emerge at all, or for the web to make a comeback.

OTOH the web still has its little niche on mobile, even today, and it feels durable. When I scan a QR code at a restaurant, I expect it to take me to a website. The fact that there are at least two competing OSes (Android/iOS) means it can't just take me directly to one app store or another (thankfully). Web apps are still popular (AIUI) in emerging markets because they're lightweight, and bandwidth and storage come at a premium. Websites are still good for business listings. Etc.

No właśnie - nie rozumiem kryptowalut, a NFT napawa mnie już niebotycznym zdumieniem. Może i coś w tym jest, ale generalnie uważam, że kryptowaluty mają silne podstawy: chciwość i głupota.A ponieważ te trzymają się dobrze, to te i podobne piramidy będą się trzymać także.

Ha ha, top-level comment about J. Bezos in a Guardian opinion piece:

"Customers with a space rocket in their basket also bought: the government." 😂

@jaczad Hej hej, czy jest Ci może znany sposób na wyciągnięcie tekstu z jakiegoś okienka na Linuksie do pliku tekstowego? Tak sobie myślę, skoro screen reader ma dostęp do tego tekstu, to może można napisać aplikację, która by wyciągała to do zwykłej postaci tekstowej? 🤔

I've just realized that both Bayo battle themes are moon-related, so I change my vote to

Like seriously, we need a freakin’ alternative to Apple and Google and we can have it, we really can, and I can’t believe I’m getting pushback on “my laptop should keep charging my bloody phone when I close the fucking lid.”

Do you even want to be anything but toys for geeks?

People used to say “when you don’t pay for a service, you’re the product”, but now you always are the product and sometimes you even have to pay for the privilege.
