Today,there are many proposals to fix Big Tech, but too often, these proposals start from the premise that Big Tech is permanent and there is no need to consider the way new rules would impact potential competitors, because they're already doomed.
Last year's EU Copyright Directive, for example, with its mandate for expensive copyright filters for online services (how expensive? Google spend $100m developing Contentid, a toy version of what the EU rule requires).
Does anyone know anyone who is connected with Dkosopedia?
The site went static several years ago, and was completely unavailable for awhile (except through archive.org snapshots).
The static version seems to be available again, but the search engine doesn't work... and I know there's a ton of content there I'd love to rescue, either to host in its original form or to integrate with Issuepedia.
Feel free to boost.
Okay people, we've seen #Mozilla degrade more and more for years, and we've always hoped it will find its way and get better.
Now people working on Developer Tools, #MDN, and the Rust team - arguably some of the most useful and valuable teams at Mozilla - have been laid off, to make space for more profit making activities.
This is utter bullshit.
But perhaps this is also an opportunity. The FLOSS community forked OpenOffice, XFree86, and other huge projects.
