Fedi usage PSA 

Don't. Use. Link. Shorteners.

Every link you post that's longer than 23 characters is treated as though it's 23 characters long.

Link shorteners do *nothing* except

1. Allow for folks to be tracked and their IP's exposed in some cases.
2. Obscure what you're linking and cause people not to trust that you're not going to link them something malicious.

Stop using them.

In French, we don’t say “a racist movie”, we say “une représentation socio-culturelle critique et décalée” and I think this is a lot of bullshit.

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
