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).

there's a whole class of technology that's just "bad computers"

tablets, phones, voice assistants

these could all be improved by being computers

it seems that there are exactly four web browsers that support proper tail calls:
- macOS Safari
- iOS Safari
- Safari Technology Preview

Does anyone know anyone who is connected with Dkosopedia?

The site went static several years ago, and was completely unavailable for awhile (except through 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.

the rise of scrappy unix bullshit will save us all

7 spice is chili powder plus six other spices.
Chili powder is just chili powder.
An easy way to tell the difference is to look for 6 other spices

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.
