@firstname.lastname@example.org Well, I did, the last few days. We have a table at work. Now my hands hurt. 😂
I sometimes wonder how younger people think things were “before their time”. Back in the day, the digital way to get manga/bd was in the now lost (it is, right?) art of fan novelization: I did read the first Dragonball manga books as texfiles, when I was young (years later they were published in Portugal, and I made the collection with drawings and everything).
Hmmm interesting view points 🤔
@email@example.com the billionaire class is letting software developers know that they are no longer a privileged hire. soon they will hire back a bunch of software developers but at lower pay and with much reduced benefits. The ongoing class war has finally reached devs.
That’s my read anyway.
@firstname.lastname@example.org add me! :-)
@email@example.com is that the app based on Nostr?
@firstname.lastname@example.org “if you want to use the very many, and very nice mobile apps …”
@email@example.com “outsourcing” and “restructuring” are the hot new corpo buzzwords these days. The shirt economy and endless inflation we find ourselves in, probably isn’t helping it either.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Safetest in terms of what? 🤔
Damus is pretty interesting, but the global feed is already quite the hellscape. I have yet to see anyone that I know from other forms of social media and signal to noise is quite low so far.
@email@example.com There is a difference, between scraped data, used for AI training and the advertising companies, who track your behavior online, across sites, to better target you, with more relevant advertisements. These tools also give companies that use this technology, statistics about how people use their sites, so they can deduce, what needs to be changed, to increase their profits - but no AI is involved in any of that yet.
There might not be much one can do, to prevent what they publish online, from being scraped, to make some AI, but you can fight against targeted advertising and corporate analytic, by hardening your browser.
I think it’s best to combine things like: Using adblockers, scriptblockers/filters, incognito modes, settings that delete everything, when the browser is closed, not allowing unnecessary cookies, logging out of services, right after you’re done using them (unless you are sure, they don’t track you).
There are more extreme measures too, but those are a bit of an overkill, for normal web browsing, in my opinion.
@xuu another headless twt?
it could have been some with running out of disk space for my twt cache.
probably some now that the free COVID loans that required staffing numbers are over the staffing is no longer needed.
Business pushing for recession. They all over hired during the pandemic to meet higher traffic levels and now those levels are dropping back to normal. absolutely bad resource planning all around.
@firstname.lastname@example.org right now the safest bet, if you want to use the very many, and very nice mobile apps, is Mastodon. That’s bound to change, though.
@email@example.com US recession I assume
Nothing to be done by you. I asked the OP. 😊
@firstname.lastname@example.org it is. I could opt for not following any link, but that would hamper interaction, and camaraderie. Out of politeness, I would like to know if a link I can’t see goes to Twitter, so that I can avoid it.
What’s with all these tech companies going through massive layoffs. The latest one is Intel, but instead they’re cutting salaries to avoid laying off.
@email@example.com Yarn.social obviously 😆 That’s why he’s posting here 🤣
@firstname.lastname@example.org which one did you like?
@email@example.com is that a serious feature request? 😆
as(#y23sufa) @xuuCool I’ll see if I can repro in isolation and file a bug report upstream 👌
Thanks for the video link bro, I watched i t for a while, over an hour !! Question, why do IPads listen to people, collecting every conversation we say, and the ads come to our phones based on that conversation. What do they do with all the content, stored digitally for ever? Allow robotic AI machines to talk local talk, like humans do?
Are we humans losing our abilities to be unique? Are machines so to take over? I see this as a real threat.
I suspect the end of humans as a species is near, and soon robotic AI machines will speak and talk just like humans can.
But for now, how does one protect the words we speak and write from machines that steal our intellectual property? Google claims it helps more people search and read our stuff? Hmm? If we forget what we speak after a week, than our words should die with us. I can read what I wrote from aged 17, I have diaries, and my words should remain there, in my books. How does reading a 17 yr old way back in 1970 help a 17 yr old living in a different world?
@firstname.lastname@example.org aha, a hater! Just the kind I was looking for some serious business that requires some fervent hating. Pay is good, you up to? :-D :-P
Digging into all the various Mastodon/Activity Pub alternatives today. It’s cool to see so much development activity in this space right now.
interesting that in my pod this is showing in reply to something.. but in the twtxt is has no subject.
@email@example.com The parse is correct. this seems to be something with the markdown render.
