web meta, long post (with music! link at the end) 

encrypted authenticated static sites over a public distributed data store. secrecy, anonymity, redundancy, natively supported by the protocol. a bit like freenet's freesites. i promise you there is a solution at least that perfect to everything we can currently do with computers.

imagine the utter fucking efficiency of 'communist netflix' on a global p2p network that lets you choose your level of anonymity over [peer locality and hops].
a great virtual mesh as close as possible to many opportunistic networks

datacenters, servers, ultimately exist to make us pay. they're a product of a centralized view of the internet, the point of view of governments and capitalists with the goal to accumulate literal and metaphoric power

web meta 

i think at some point letting the web evolve to be more reliable secure and energy efficient will mean, destroying those concepts of 'website' and 'server' as they currently exist, and that will be hard, but it is good and we need it

broke: trans people (particularly early in their transition) have bad/tacky fashion taste because they haven't "learned how to present" yet
woke: while it's true that trans people's fashion tastes often develop more after they've been transitioning for a while, no fashion is innately bad, it's all about what makes you comfortable
bespoke: looking like a cyber goth gf or a 13 year old skater boy is literally peak fashion and cis ppl are cowards

Some people have called out git send-email as being difficult for new programmers to get the hang of. I usually respond to this by pointing out that the speaker didn't always know how to use GitHub, too - and as someone who often reviews pull requests from new GitHub users, that workflow is confusing and takes time to learn, too.

But, this notion was disproved another way: someone just sent me a perfectly formatted patchset via the git.sr.ht patchset submission UI, with no hands-on instruction, and told me later that it was their first-ever contribution to free and open source software.

En pleine pandémie, le gouvernement recommande la télésurveillance des examens par des dispositifs invasifs, discriminants et illégaux : vidéosurveillance, reconnaissance faciale, analyse comportementale...

Les établissements d'enseignement doivent y renoncer.

Finalement, ma vie n’est pas si pourrie lorsque je compare à celle des gens qui s’occupent de la réputation de l’application géorgienne « Stop Covid ». Les injures et les mauvaises notes pleuvent dans les épiceries d’application mobiles par des gens qui croient que c’est l’appli officielle du gouvernement français nitter.net/romaindillet/status
