Tech enthusiast: "I want smart lights, smart tv, everything, and connect them all to my digital assisstant!"

Tech worker: *looks wistfully into distance* "I should get a small place in a little town, with a garden, make my own furniture."

Holy dang. Not only can the DMCA be used to bogusly take down someone's content, it can be used to get their address too.

"Man sued for using bogus YouTube takedowns to get address for swatting"

"Instagram on Windows 95 would be awful.. it would be a hot mess."

What are you talking about? Insta Win95 would look great!

You saying it's not currently a hot mess?

For a second thinking the NFC logo at top of phone screen was Netscape Navigator, now do what that on the phone.

Survivor-style reality show, but when they try to introduce conflict we just work together and all thrive.

Random idea: use fediverse as comment section of web pages.

Have a unique tag indicating overall site, and specific page on that site.

Page does a search for tag, displays posts with it as comments.

Posting comment on that page works like those "share" buttons that open say twitter but with some pregen text (the tag for this page) then you add the rest of text as what you want to say.

"Capitalism is the most efficient way to distribute resources."

"But just a few are obscenely rich while many can barely live."

"Then that must be the most efficient state, because it's a result of capitalism."

The skyscrapers at night stand like dark monoliths with illuminous strata.

The streets beneath them slick with rain, their asphalt a black mirror of the halogen lights.

I weave through them, unnoticed in the neon light and silent on the net.

My pack hunts.

Have done work with GPGPU and ASICs/FPGAs, should get back into those.

Those are currently the only computing platforms that are natively parallel and aren't sequential machines that optimize for the PDP-11 virtual machine with parallelism pushed so hard on them they have security holes.

I sometimes think of the powerful words of a close friend, someone that has carved their own path, the words they utter when the world confronts them:

"I will shit in your mouth."

In completely different contexts, I have been floored by the skill of Brazilian hackers.

What's going on there? Like, in one of the contexts, an entire financial industry was wary of you.

The other, well, it was a professional respect, but you were kind on a personal level.

Let me hear about that cyberpunk story.

This is you. And yet, it is not. At least, not the whole.

How you present yourself here on the fediverse. It is one outlet for yourself. One window into which you allow others to see yourself.

That expands out to how you interact at work, in your apartment, in your neighborhood.

To your families, to your close friends. How you act to your pets.

To the inner sanctum of your art, your writing, yourself.

You are a multifaceted gem. Each face reflecting a different image, a different perspective of the same inner structure.

Hold that gem and feel its warmth and its power.

I want to build my own cyber deck.

Anyone building/built one, or know of examples?

There are few hackers more determined than an employee just trying to do their job.

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
