This is great: "stable" coin project relies on community governance, so a hacker borrows $1b, uses it to get a 67% voting stake, votes that the project should wire them $182m, then pays back the huge loan and exits -- all in the space of 13 seconds. The "stable" coin immediately crashes.

thoughts about trending content and user retention
i understand user retention being a useful metric like “are we doing things right”, and low user retention can be a sign the onboarding is confusing or the software a pain to use
but at the same time, i feel like it's ok for users to try out Mastodon and figure out that this kind of social network is actually not what they were looking for
similarly, i understand trending hashtags and posts (sorry i still don't understand trending articles) can be useful to discover content and users who may interest you, but… are you doing that to help people find what they were initially searching for, or to constantly give them something new to engage with? also, trending stuff likely worsens the “popularity contest” side of things and requires proactive moderation
"In a groundbreaking decision, the Austrian Data Protection Authority ("Datenschutzbehörde" or "DSB") has decided on a model case by noyb that the continuous use of Google Analytics violates the GDPR."
"This is a very detailed and sound decision. The bottom line is: Companies can't use US cloud services in Europe anymore."
After Mozilla recently began accepting donations via BitPay, many people started being vocal about cancelling Mozilla and Firefox and switching to other browsers.
I know crypto sucks, but don't y'all realize that the other browser engines are developed by megacorps that are LEAGUES ahead in terms of ecologic impact, and that are almost entirely built on top of evil business models?
Mozilla's only sin was accepting donations via BitPay. Please let's stop being so toxic about everything, and boycott BitPay and Bitcoin rather than Mozilla, shall we?
Connaissiez-vous le nom de la norme GSM? je veux dire le vrai nom?
Tout le monde dit que c'est Global System for Mobile Communications (ils ont mal intégré le C oui), mais le nom d'origine était Groupe Spécial Mobile au sein de la CEPT, la Commission Européenne des Postes et télécommunications, l'équivalent des PTT français, en 1982. Pas tout jeune tout ça!
I honestly don't really care how "unreliable" you think shared libraries are, using entirely static linking is how we get gigantic 500MB monoliths that waste disk space and RAM, don't integrate with the rest of the system properly due to mismatched library versions, and also don't get security patches from the system unless you manually update the binary itself.
Static linking may be "easier", but as programmers, it's our job to use the *right* solution, not just the easiest one.
