Internet russe, l'exception qui vient de loin

www.monde-diplomatique.fr/2017/08/LIMONIER/57798

La Russie est en effet l’un des seuls pays à disposer d’un écosystème presque complet de plates-formes et de services indépendants de ceux de la Silicon Valley, fondés par des Russes et régis par le droit russe.

PSA: Do Not Use Services That Hate The Internet

www.jwz.org/blog/2022/11/psa-do-not-use-services-that-hate-the-internet

As you look around for a new social media platform, I implore you, only use one that is a part of the World Wide Web. tl;dr avoid Hive and Post. If posts in a social media app do not have URLs that can be linked to and viewed in an unauthenticated browser, or if there is no way to make a new post from a browser, then that program is not a part of the World Wide Web in any meaningful way.

File System Alternatives

wiki.c2.com?FileSystemAlternatives

I am tired of hierarchical FileSystems. They grow into big messes over time (LimitsOfHierarchies). Let's discuss alternatives. Some have suggested using various kinds of databases so that one can query or view based on a wide variety of potentially orthogonal traits.

The C2 Ancients have good ideas.

P. S. Trying to save this page in Betula shows how bad and unfriendly the new “design” of WikiWikiWeb is.

The history of Tetris randomizers - Simon Laroche

simon.lc/the-history-of-tetris-randomizers

An overview of Tetris randomizers.

The 7-bag has a consistent piece output, making it more predictable. It’s easy to know where in a bag you are, and when a piece you need might come. Because of how predictable this random generator is, it’s actually possible to play forever. Overall it’s a silly system that makes you wonder how it ever became the official randomizer.

It's actually why I like that randomizer!

I should try out TGM3.

Funny part: the illustration for the 7-bag features wrongly-coloured tetrominoes.

Do you even compute, bro?

gemini://zaibatsu.circumlunar.space/~solderpunk/gemlog/do-you-even-compute-bro.gmi

The dominant use of personal computers in the 21st century is the functional simulation of non-computers.

Today I spent unnecessary hours chatting online. It could've been... a visit to a bar? Do I have to drink every day? A park? Huh? Where do people talk nowadays? And at winter?

Then I watched some moving pictures. Sure, it could've been a video disk. But the moving pictures I watched would probably never get to me here, in a less-computer world.

Then, I've read some posts in Solderpunk's gemlog. It could've been a book which I don't think would've read.

Then I saved it to this Betula. What would I do elsewise? Cut the article from the book? Rewrite? Hmm, there is photocopy. Oh wait, I don't make copies of content in Betula (although it's a planned feature), I merely comment on them. Yeah, it could've been a notebook. No search though. And no RSS...

I'm not sure I want a world with less computers. Maybe just a little less.

One billion, one continent

gemini://zaibatsu.circumlunar.space/~solderpunk/gemlog/one-billion-one-continent.gmi

Solderpunk came up with a different way of portraying the future of humanity in sci-fi. Slowly move everybody to one continent. Most people live in 50 megacities. We live and degrowth as long as we can. A fun concept. I myself like space conquering more, to be honest. Maybe combine the two?
