Just watched Alita: Battle Angel Show more
I think the first 3/4 of the movie were quite good, but the last part felt a bit rushed and lacking. The manga is better in my opinion, but this adaptation is still better than Ghost in the Shell, and I'd consider it a good standalone movie. A step in the right direction for Hollywood on manga/anime adaptations.
Wow, listening to Mozilla's IRL podcast I just found out that Pokemon Go is also surveillance capitalism, because they have partnerships with companies such as McDonald's that'll pay them for bringing customers by placing strategic pokestops 😱 https://irlpodcast.org/season4/episode5/
@tgall Yeah I agree with you, I'm just not interpreting their words to go against that.
@tgall I agree with you, but what I understand is more simple like that. They want people to start using Solid. To make Solid apps, people need to know how to code. And yes, anyone can learn to code. But that's what I mean with "expertise", you need to have some experience to start making apps.
Maybe they could have phrased it better.
@tgall Well I don't even agree with the idea of "brightest minds" existing at all, what I understand with that statement is that they want "experts" to apply their expertise to Solid, from whatever field they come from.
I'm sure they welcome anyone as part of the conversation and to join the community.
But anyways what do I know, you should ask them :) I've been asking questions on their gitter channel and they are usually very responsive.
@tgall Why is it a contradiction? Can't the brightest minds be made up of a diverse community?
The #fosdem talk about #solid has been uploaded! Check it out for a neat introduction to what's Solid and what it tries to achieve: https://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/fosdem-video/2019/Janson/solid_web_decentralization.mp4
@tootbrute Well it's a start. Would be nice to see them enforce it instead of fining though, they probably make more money than what they have to pay for.
Thanks for the link!
We've had some months of #GDPR now. Do we know of any case where it's been enforced or punished with fines? Or will it become one of those regulations that people ignore?
I just found out about https://duckduckgo.com/lite and it's awesome :D
Damn, I don't think I can leave the decentralization/privacy room, too many interesting talks #fosdem
Hi dear #fediverse :) I’ll be at #FOSDEM this weekend and I’d love to exchange with as much people I can who are involved in building a better internet for all. Think ActivityPub, federation, self-hosting, Solid, etc. I’m working on a project to help this movement. Please dm me, boost 🙏 @aral @eliotberriot @Framasoft @dada @pierreozoux @yunohost
I just finished rewriting my site about Autonomous Data, which is the application architecture I'll be working with for a while. From now on I'll focus on actually shipping some! https://noeldemartin.github.io/autonomous-data/
Next week I'll be at #FOSDEM, anyone going? I'm still pondering which talks to attend. One I'll visit for sure is the one about Solid! https://fosdem.org/2019/schedule/event/solid_web_decentralization/
Yesterday I was working on migrating my website to Docker, and I decided to use a Docker nginx container as reverse proxy. Instead of using some tool to automate the process I just wrote a couple of bash scripts to have more control. Check them out if you are interested in learning about it: https://github.com/noeldemartin/nginx-agora
@dajbelshaw Did you end up making a cake? Cooking seems intimidating but it isn't so bad if you manage your expectations, I usually aim for "edible" and I accomplish it most of the time 😂
@dajbelshaw I don't know if I'm still on time, but Happy Birthday to your daughter :D
