Telegram is notoriously insecure and routinely cooperates with govs behind the scenes while talking a big game about speech and privacy. Even their limited opt-in (roll their own) encryption is sus. The more you know 🌈

If you're interested in working with me in public on open specifications for miniature racks like those in 1970s computer labs then check out this newly created Codeberg repo: codeberg.org/trevorflowers/des
I just really want many people to be able to make interoperable miniature rackable retrocomputers, OK? 😺

it occured to me that if the web is full of junk (like ai-generated seo content etc), are there search engines where you can create and share with others your own (potentially big) sets of domains to include in the search? (edit for clarification: people would cobble together their own curated subset(s) of the web and just ignore the junk)

How fucked up would it be to use JavaScript on a microcontroller to read from EMGs to give me a new usb mouse/keyboard that's just a bunch of wires I strap to myself? espruino.com/USB

Probably not for typing any time soon but maybe for window manager shortcuts and moving my cursor?

Many yearn for the "good old days" of the web. We could have those good old days back — or something even better — and if anything, it would be easier now than it ever was.

Chesterton’s Gun; if there is a gun on the wall, you should fire it because it is probably there for a good reason.
