All that's left is some sorta AI shit to blur out logos and branding from videos/images. Or replace them with Big Chungus.

I think it says something about my browsing habits that I only knew about the "half the internet being down" thing from people complaining about it.

"This new note taking system is amazing!" starter pack:

proprietary software and storage format;
no API or tool hooks;
reinvents Zettlekästen, wikis, and/or Memex concepts without acknowledgement (and frequently missing key components);
syncs to a private cloud with no (or shitty) encryption, or assumes you'll only ever work on one machine;
gigantic kitchen sink prerequisites (Electron or "works with emacs/VScode/Eclipse");

My bank just sent me a “secure email” where I had to click a link and open it in my browser to view it.

If only there was some way to encrypt emails, too bad it's completely and objectively impossible.

Everyone^1 in my feed is talking about Audacity... I like Ardour more anyways...

Telegram Desktop is such a crap it used to hang my system into completely unusable state o_O. I removed it and my uptime is pretty good now.

Десктопное приложение телеграма намертво весило мою систему, помогала только перезагрузка кнопкой на корпусе. Никогда бы не догадалась, что это из-за него, если бы не удалила.

“Cryptocurrency is literally like an eight-year-old’s concept of an evil businessman. He just plugs his pollution machine in and gets money for it. It doesn’t make anything, it just. Pollutes. And makes money. Like a fucking Captain Planet villain”

Good read: https://drewdevault.com/2021/03/06/Corporate-surveillance-murder.html

Drone strikes are now partly determined by location data bought from tech companies that surveil their users.

Article quote:

> I’ve often heard the excuse that employees of large surveillance companies “want to feed their families, like anyone else”. Well, thanks to your work, a child you’ve never met was orphaned, and doesn’t have a family anymore. Who’s going to feed them? Is there really no other way for you to support your family?
