If had fallen asleep in 2001 and woke up now...

Google owns a monopoly on browsers.

Microsoft owns a defacto monopoly on the servers where almost all of FOSS is located and development is done.

Micosoft's IDE is also what all the Kool Kids are using and is rapidly taking over.

ISP's are a monopoly in most locations in the USA: Comcast, AT&T, and a few others, but many places have just one (1) choice. South Korea (and indeed much of the world) has far better residential and mobile internet connectivity than the USA.

Almost all the servers on the internet are running Linux.... but owned by Amazon, Inc. and rented to people on an hourly basis.

All the personal devices are running either Linux or FreeBSD, but owned and closed down by Apple or Google and cellular carriers.

One of the most dominant languages is JavaScript. Some of other most dominant languages are owned by Google, Oracle, and Microsoft.

Steve Jobs is dead, Bill Gates is retired, and RMS has been run out of town on a rail for being a creep.

Endless September has been extended to a large portion of the world, who is all online and trolling each other relentlessly on massive privately-owned walled-garden fora owned by corporations. Elections have been turned by desinformatsaya purposely spread via these fora and there's no way to stop it.

Stop mirroring your Twitter account to the fediverse, especially these retweets of a single picture without any caption or comment.

We used to say the Web had shrunk to four websites where people posted only screenshots from the other three, let's not add a fifth one to that dumpster fire.

Remember when I said "i should make my own language learning program" Good news, I've just started – just one year later.

Are there some cool RSS feeds I can subscribe to?

Surveillance capitalism is the same as climate change, but for data:

- Some people have been warning about its consequences for years
- Most people don't care because they don't feel concerned, they can't see it affecting them
- A few companies are making a lot of damage with the help of governments
- When we will face the consequences it will be too late
- We can still do something about it, and the sooner the better

Don't.
Use.
#Zoom.
Just.
Don't.

“Free users for sure we don’t want to give that [end-to-end encryption] because we also want to work together with FBI, with local law enforcement in case some people use Zoom for a bad purpose” - Eric Yuan, CEO.

I would like to follow a multi-language approach on my website, covering French (primarily), German, and English. Does anybody of you have an idea how I could realize that on a no-JS basis?

Notion has a terrible privacy policy.
OneNote is just terrible considering its UX/UI and the company behind.
Anytype will be based on Electron.

Guess I have to build something from scratch.

Finally, I started working on my website again! Gaining so much knowledge (also thanks to you pals, showing everything is possible without JavaScript), it is a fun process to see everything coming together.
More coming soon :)

My high school graduation exams start next week. I'm a bit scared already. These times don't make it better.

Merveilles, I'm sorry if I disappoint you, but I won't move over to git.sr.ht 😕

I do not want to be dependent on music streaming services like Spotify. I do not want to be dependent from platforms like iTunes. I wish I could buy the music as files like I am able on Bandcamp - but so few artists I listen to actually sell their music on Bandcamp.
Major music labels are full of crap 👌
