From a few years ago:

Not for the first time and likely not the last time. Misunderstanding of what am saying/talking about. To be clear the is complex in that its at root a unhealthy/inhuman desire for total control.
The federated model is both pandering to the problem, here have control and diluting the problem by spreading it thinly and then turning it into vapour ie. It's a kind of step away if you understand the problem is there to stepaway from πŸ™‚

I obviously need batter package checking. In tests on the next version of #Freedombone it looks like packages can fail to install, but the system just sails on anyway without error. Which then results in strange behavior or crashes.

@loke > Back in the 80's the people who understood technology and the people who used technology was roughly the same set. This led to a misbelief that using technology made you understand it.

In the 80's there were efforts to teach people how technology worked in order to empower them to use it well. It was fairly common for someone to start using computers for a very practical end, and to then start learning how they actually worked, because the systems were set up to facilitate that.

What we have today is cynically constructed to be impenetrable. Today's computers and today's electronics are designed to keep the user out, so it's no wonder that only a tiny, extremely motivated subset understand things. That's by design, but it's not how things need to work.

Programming mRNA was mostly perfected a decade ago.

The main reason most of us were not immune to most dangerous coronaviruses already is because it was, until recently, not profitable.

I don't blame you for hating big pharma, but get vaccinated when it is your turn.

In the 1990's the was lots of shit as well as good stuff in activism. I think we need to reboot some of the good stuff to step away from the current shit.

I want to stream to #peertube from my android phone, preferably the camera

Is there any app that can do that?
I just find crappy ones, and non-free ones

To change things you have to understand them we have lived in a for the last 40 years, and you likely voted for this.

Its more complex than good/bad

the desire to control

the desire to belong

the desire to be rich

Desire is a human thing that can be healthy and unhealthy. I think the is a common understanding of the problem with geeks. Fashion is a bedrock of capital driven consumerism, as is the desire to be rich.

The interesting/powerful thing is to call people and groups out from their unhealthy desires.
And in reaction nurture good desires.

If academic knowledge worked in the real world we would live in very different ways - thus it is easy to show that most academic ideas are useless and IMPOSING them on the real world has a VERY bad history to it. Please rethink before doing this as it's just adding to the mess.
