Companies used to be good at federating. Originally motivated by slow connection speeds.

So companies would have their own servers to store files, they'd have their own E-mail servers, and they'd have their own SIP-capable VoIP server too.

But now everything is just being replaced with centralized crap cloud services owned by a few tech giants

Maybe the solution to LEO (law enforcement officer) violence is to round them up and put them in LEO (low earth orbit).

@byron @natecull On the centralised vs distributed topic, consider the public library. An institution largely regarded as good, is is nevertheless without a doubt a centralised solution. A distributed "library" would mean asking random people in the street if they happen to have the book you're looking for and if you might kindly be allowed to borrow it. I don't think that would work very well.

It's so interesting that #privacy concerns over public health apps mean that you must opt-in to be tracked with built-in coronavirus features, but still must opt-out of all of the even more intrusive tracking that already happens on the phone by default: cnbc.com/2020/09/01/apple-goog

@kyle when I rage-quit the use of any Google products I downloaded all of the data made available to me. 185GB, compressed. A lot of it truly shocking, as I do not recall opting in to its collection nor do I recall ever having the option to say no. I figured it would mostly be my GMail archives, but it was so very much more. It would not surprise me if there’s another 185GB worth of data about me that was not made available to me.

If you live inside a fortification where someone else writes the rules, decides who can enter, can force anyone to leave, decides what you’re allowed to have, and can take things away if they decide it’s contraband, are you living in a castle or a prison? puri.sm/posts/your-phone-is-yo

Don't forget to hug, call or just make a gift to someone, if you have one.

A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”

It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”

It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)

By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.

And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.
