BREAKING NEWS: The UK 🇬🇧 has made the decision to open a Market Investigation Reference into Browsers and Cloud Gaming.

Podcasting 

Now that we're learning this lesson that centralized silos are brittle and operate in the interest of the owners not the users...

If you like podcasts, use an RSS-based podcast player. Support the open ecosystem. We can only survive if you clearly see the threat and act supportively.

I wonder if the Metaverse, but implemented like the Fediverse, would create a real life implementation of the OASIS in Ready Player One?

macOS on the M1 MacBook Pro is so terrible at handling external displays.

When it wakes from sleep, the screen comes alive as expected but will go black and return after a couple of seconds - every 30 seconds or so.

It’s interesting that the biggest communication challenge facing Mastodon communities is explaining that it’s basically a protocol and a network of independent, interconnected servers, which is what the Web, e-mail, even DNS and most of the fundamental services we use on the internet are, and always were.
It just illustrates just how much ‘Big Tech’ proprietary social media platforms swallowed up and walled off, if it’s now difficult to explain what the internet actually is!

If you're looking to find Mastodon users among your Twitter following, this tool is a great one!
