Nazi leader Herman Goring's philosophy would work well even now:

“.. the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country”.

So we need to be concerned when Facebook are laying their own cables, when they provide services and cheap hardware to the global south. This isn't out of the goodness of Mark Zuckerbergs heart. It's about monopoly, market share and influencing the next generation of humanity and selling that power to the highest bidder. verdict.co.uk/facebook-subsea-

I've made an alternative frontend to Medium:

scribe.rip

If you, like me, are occasionally forced to read articles on medium.com, now you can read them on Scribe instead! Feedback welcome.

If Google goes down, our government offices will also go down with it. Gov employees depend on Google for a lot of things, even the very basic Malayalam typing.

You should own your pencil, a software/company shouldn't dictate what you can write, when you can write.

Ease of access to health and education for an average citizen is a better indicator of qualify of life in a country than income earned by the top richest entities of that country.

Statistics that indicate the well-being of people in a nation:
- Life expectancy
- Access to health care
- Literacy
- Percentage of people that own their own homes

Statistics that are most often displayed in the media:
- GDP
- GDP per capita
- Economic growth

The fairy tale says that boosting the ones from below would inevitably result in boosting the ones from above. But is this really the case?

You know what I want, I want a better option when some site says, "to access this file we need to see and download your entire address book". I want more than "yes" or "no". I want "lie to it." Give it an address book full of noise. Tell Dropbox I only know one person, but he's the Pope."

Another Medium alternative on the Fediverse is Plume, which is also a federated long form text platform.

Plume's status is slightly unclear as the official website has a message on the front page saying the project is not currently maintained: joinplu.me

Can anyone give an update on what's going on there?

Google could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and it wouldn’t lose primary standing in some open source projects.

Anyone else seeing this? I made a comment that included "joinmastodon.org" and got this from Facebook.

They say nuclear energy equipment can easily be converted to make nuclear weapons. It's as easy to weaponize religion as politics.
