So. Mozilla Foundation is letting go of 250 people. I find this ironic considering the fact that the Executive Chairwoman and CEO of the Mozilla Foundation Mitchell Baker have been paid a total of 9 203 837 USD between the years 2012 and 2018 while they're begging for donations, because they're "non-profit" and they "rely on donations".
250 of us have been laid off from Mozilla this morning.

Indeed. This is really handy and something I've been looking for, for a long time. On a side note I love the fact that the segment details can be modified in a text editor since they are stored in a csv file.
Behind the scenes it relies on #ffmpeg.

This is so wonderfully funny though. US government is making all the arguments about the necessity of keeping the data locally that EU had been making in the past (with the US gov't then strongly pushing back, because of course).
‘come November, a portion of Facebook users will not trust the outcome of the election because they have been bombarded with messages on Facebook preparing them to not trust it’
I saw that election potentiality a hundred miles away.
Also, I've created a '#PeerTube Quality' list on GitHub (might be changing from GitHub to something else).
It lists channels or accouts that I consider of 'quality', essentially what you might support financially because it takes a bit of time or money to create videos. It might help you for #PeerTubeDiscover. Feel free to suggest adding something.

I kind of like #lemmy, but I'm bothered by the fact it is done by a tankie who deflects human-rights abuse as soon as it's done by an authoritarian regime he believes to be communist or anti-united-states.
To mass murder done by tankies he response with, "Imao sounds like we got the fuckin high score then u fuckin lib."
How is it possible that no one is bothered by that?
... I've never seen a discussion happening about that. #lemmy
Microsoft steals name of Linux Desktop project (MauiKit and the Maui distribution) for their project that does the same thing and then blames Linux community for using that name to begin with (which is obvious trademark infringement as they've both had those names for years now). Abusing power over GitHub to then delete any issues on their project related to the name collision and deny they are at fault for ignoring the first search result that comes up for the name Maui.
You can tell they are trying to embrace, extend, and extinguish. But with blunders like this and the way their megacorp stooge bosses like to handle it they won't be extending anything.
