This is a amazing read that everyone should check out, a great look at some gaming history being untold until now.

Dear fellow @SDF members/instance users 🦌

☝️ REMINDER: what our SDF Mastodon instance is all about (also pls see nice image attachment)☝️

to extend the blurb on our "About" page, our instance is all about art + music + technology (even though Eugen doesn't thiink it's an art instance.. well... it is 🤪🤪🤪)

NOTE: Our instance is no longer an open instance but is now by invitation or by application only due to repeated abuses by spam bots et evil humanz 🤖🔥

Not a big surprise, but this made me realize that we're being increasingly played by media. Our online lives are directed by maybe only half a dozen algorithms.

If you ever wanted to manage your phone apps with dwm and compose your texts using vi, this is for you.

I would like to thank everyone who worked on the #OpenBSD 6.7 release.

Also the artwork is really awesome.

You are in a very retro VR room, and in front of you, a computer with DOS installed. Delightful.

The following is a link for a portal that reads the new Gemini protocol into a web browser.
There is some description of why it is useful and a worthy successor to the Gopher protocol.

It's so incredibly cool to have my Mastodon timeline writing software for Plan 9, XMPP, and Gopher. What year is it?!?!

This is one of those aspirational projects I'd love to tackle on, if only I had time. I really wish I could make my own cellphone.

Zoom acquired Keybase today.

Keybase helped me to identify a trend in the software industry: using a pretty UI to cover up the disruption of an open ecosystem with a closed, centralized replacement. Keybase seemed cool on the face of it - making encryption easier is a laudible goal, and PGP certainly could use the improvement. But, thanks to Keybase, now I ask different questions upfront.

Beware the Keybase formula:

1. Integrates with an existing, open ecosystem
2. May have open-source clients, but server is closed source and does not federate
3. Pretty UI and good marketing
4. VC funded
