Reddit stands for disinformation. Fuck Reddit.

Reddit CEO /u/spez dismisses rampant and motivated disinformation campaigns with "Dissent is a part of Reddit and the foundation of democracy".

There's a mythological belief, unsupported by evidence, that some "free marketplace of ideas" will arrive at truth. When examined, this is revealed to be, as much of what is transacted in that marketplace, nothing more than propaganda, here selling the idea of the free market itself. [1] The process by which truths come to be known and established is not debate, but experience: empirical study, the pragmatic recognition of models of ever-greater usefulness and accuracy, of observation and experiment. At best the marketplace trades on that commodity against the competing goods of attractive and self-serving myths, lies, legends, and distortions.

The Debian Project hosts all its development IRC channels on irc.oftc.net and also has a thriving community on irc.libera.chat. The Debian Project no longer has control of #debian on the freenode IRC network. We thank the former freenode staff for their tireless work over many years. Please read wiki.debian.org/IRC for more information about Debian IRC channels.

A mysterious creature was digging holes in my little balcony herb garden last night. It was probably Sasquatch. They like basil and climb onto balconies.

Just had a very nice balcony espresso. Cooler today and the condo construction seems quieter.

My IRC world has moved from Freenode to Libera and it seems fine! I don’t understand why someone would destroy Freenode and what their objectives might be. Its hard to follow the money on this one. But it’s nice to see that the community is resilient and able to move quickly.
