The web scam known as Brave browser gets caught, again, doing shady stuff. This time they stuff their affiliate links/code into your searches and URLs so that Brave makes money each time you visit certain sites.
People need to stop using Brave. It's a bad faith actor in the browser market. At this point even Chrome would be preferable.
And like puppets they all dance, dance, dance to the mastermind Engelbert Humperdinck and his Ten Guitars.
The Napoleon of Rhyme.
It’s not new, but I think about the solar powered website build a lot. The optimizations there are great even if you’re not going solar all the way. https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/2018/09/how-to-build-a-lowtech-website.html
Big Tech doesn't mean good software
What binaries does a Mastodon install depend on that prevents it from being installed on a Raspberry Pi 4B (Ubuntu 19.10, linux-arm64)?
I made some changes to the official Dockerfile in order to use linux-arm64 sources, everything worked (well, built) until I tried to run `docker-compose up`.
It complains about 'exec user process caused "exec format error",' which I believe is due to wrong binary (e.g., compiled for amd64)? It's coming from 'standard_init_linux.go'.
Hm... Go... 🤔
Big tech platforms like Facebook and Google are elephant poachers, and our personal data is ivory tusks. Author Shoshana Zuboff writes in “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism:”“Surveillance capitalism is parasitic and self-referential. It revives Karl Marx’s old image of capitalism as a vampire that feeds on labor, but with an unexpected turn. Instead of labor, surveillance capitalism feeds on every aspect of every human’s experience.” #Zuboff #surveillancecapitalism https://www.democracynow.org/2019/3/1/age_of_surveillance_capitalism_we_thought
We all need to be reading this. Because it affects all of us. And yes, it's pretty full of sarcasm: https://ar.al/2019/01/11/i-was-wrong-about-google-and-facebook-theres-nothing-wrong-with-them-so-say-we-all/ And rightly so. #lca2020 #FOSS not #OSS
