To me, the fediverse has this "feel" of the early internet times in Brazil, and I mean that as a good thing. Maybe this has to do with the decentralization.

Then, the internet was basically a wild west with many competing services for page hosting, photo sharing, many (mediocre or plain bad) search engines, etc.

Big tech companies existed, of course, but we didn't rely on just a couple of corporations to keep our online identities and have some fun online.

Crap, now I must install mIRC again.

Chega amanhã! O condomínio aqui é cheio de bolsonarista arrombado, vai ficar aqui do lado de fora da janela como se tivesse secando. 😂

E usarei no dia da votação com certeza.

Stop using "Zoom" as a general term for video conferencing.
Stop using "Google" as a general term for searching the web.

Can you spot the issue?

UX matters.

To future historians—not just of computing, but of humanity—the current period will be a dark age.

How was Facebook used by students in the 2010s? We cannot show you, that version of Facebook is not hosted anywhere.

How did MySpace look around 2009? We don't really know, the Wayback Machine only shows a limited amount of static content, and there may only be a few surviving screenshots

What correspondence did Vint Cerf have as president of the ACM with other luminaries of computing industry and research? We do not know; Google will not publish his emails.

What was it like playing Angry Birds on an iPhone 3G? We do not know; Apple is no longer distributing signed receipts for that binary.

What did the British cabinet discuss when they first learned of the Coronavirus pandemic? We do not know; they chatted on a private WhatsApp group.

What books were published analysing the aftermath of the Maidan coup in Ukraine? We do not know; we do not have the keys for the Digital Editions DRM.

How was the coup covered in televised news? We do not know; the broadcasters used RealVideo and Windows Media Encoder and we cannot read those files.

We have to ask ourselves how we are going to preserve and transmit knowledge about our age to the next generations. Knowledge about an age where information is produced, consumed and discarded within hours, days or months, or where it's only stored on the server rooms of a handful of corporations, with no guarantees that those businesses will exist in the future, and with no way of accessing that information unless a certain set of regulatory, hardware, software pre-conditions are met.

That's why projects like the Internet Archive deserve more recognition and funding. That's why web scraping should not only be a civic right, but a civic duty to the next generations. Otherwise all the knowledge about the great age of information will be transmitted orally - with all the distortions that such transmission implies.

So I’ve finally found the motivation to start moving my/Small Technology Foundation’s repositories to @codeberg and, my goodness, is it just a breath of fresh air…

And it’s even the little things like having the site automatically adhere to your dark/light mode settings. Unlike fucking G****b.

É absolutamente incrível o nível de detalhes visíveis. Estou bem ansioso para ouvir os avanços no estudo do cosmos. Uma grande oportunidade para novas descobertas por jovens cientistas.

Just migrated my personal (static) website from GitHub to . More to follow.

cryptocurrencies 

As of now I no longer have any crypto. I must say it feels great.

Just finished watching , enjoyed it quite a lot. Great visuals, fun stories, some of them had that TNG vibe.

Initiatives like this are nice and will help us to eventually achieve better security in the open source software supply chain, but by restricting this only to "first world" countries, we are leaving out exactly who need this kind of incentive and might not otherwise have access to this kind of technology.
