If you took a drink every time an economist used "network effects" to explain why Big Tech is so big, you'd get very, very drunk.

To be fair to economists, network effects *are* important to the Big Tech story.

A system is said to have network effects if it gets better when more people use it. That certainly describes Facebook - you join FB because of the friends that are already there, and then someone else joins because you're there.

AlternativeTo now lists over 100,000 apps.

Although AlternativeTo lists both FLOSS and proprietary software it has filters for open source and software running on Linux making it a comprehensive library to search for FLOSS.

Just say no to memory unsafety 🐟🚫 @LazyFishBarrel

How do you pronounce the 'g' in "gif"?

@rysiek @tagomago @aral Which is pure fear-mongering on their part. I’ve worked with the legal department of a FAANG-level corporation on determining what different licenses actually mean because they tried to forbid the use of GPLed software, which would’ve meant a lot of workstations and all our servers πŸ˜‹ Bottom line, which should surprise no one: None of the *GPLs places any burden whatsoever on any user of the software (which is why it’s bullshit to put them in the license-agreement popups, you don’t have to agree to anything to use the software). They only come into action once you distribute (or SaaS, in case of AGPL) it to third parties (no, your employees are not a third party), and even then it’s only really relevant if you modified it, because for unmodified software you can just point people upstream. The whole concept of the *GPLs boils down to β€œIf you make a change and let others use it, you have to also give them the source (under the same conditions)”. No change? Nothing to do. No β€œothers”? Nothing to do either.

OK. This is quite technical. But TL;DR - the neural hash system #Apple uses for their CSAM detection has been confronted with its first possible collision by some good hackers. This dog might be marked by the system as suspicious. Ouch. Issue 1 at github.com/AsuharietYgvar/Appl

Something a bit different on my blog…story time. This time I talk you through the time I was run over twice in one day.

One rift that I noticed after spending the day talking to other people on the twitter #bluesky discord server is that people have very different ideas about why they want a decentralized social network. I, and others on #fediverse want to get away from the hyperscale of centralized networks and having more control over who and how we interact with people. Others are looking for something even bigger than twitter but with no censorship, fact-checking, or moderation controls. cc #activitypub

obviously the vaccine does not contain a 5g tracking microchip. it contains strands of mRNA, the genetic blueprint which tells your cells how to make a 5g tracking microchip
