Good read: No, your cryptocurrency cannot work.

Existing blockchain implementations create an incentive structure that very closely resembles a pyramid scheme and benefits the most privileged members the most. If an alternative to this is ever created (I’d like to see an alternative very much), it will likely be published in the form of an academic pdf that doesn’t want your money.

Just came across a fascinating #indie #game "Nowhere" in #crowdfunding by #Duangle games (one half of which is @sylvia_ritter here on Masto!).

It's largely procedural with each life played as an individual creature in the same organic, #scifi society, so your actions in one life will have consequences on all your future lives. This is a fascinating idea from a perspective of building empathy and society level thinking.

Take a look at:

Please share more Sylvia!

An example of the exported post is the top message of this thread. You can reply to it directly 😉

The Biden administration teased a sweeping antimonopoly executive order last week, including a Right to Repair provision aimed at agricultural equipment - a direct assault on the corporate power of repair archnemesis John Deere. It

But it turns out that the executive order goes far beyond tractors and other agricultural equipment - it also applies to consumer electronics, including mobile phones, and this is a *huge fucking deal*.

Not bad for first models, if I do say so myself.

Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.

A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."

People used to build their own websites. People used to have blogs. People used USENET which was truly distributed and un-censorable.

Facebook and Google took the open internet and open standards and monetized and made everything crappy. Enough of that. Nothing should replace Facebook, it's done, stick a fork in it.
