Happy to help :3

You bring up a nice point. It would be indeed really neat to have the DEs integrate better with Matrix and other platforms.

What’s wtv?

whatever ;)

Mmm, I suppose so. how hard would you expect it to be?

Some emojis are pretty much universal, while others clearly aren’t. The ones in GitHub’s selection are pretty normal, with exception of the thumbs-up/down I suppose (reading from that article). It’s really a matter of context. In most cases, the use of emoji reactions is fine and brings benefits.
If someone isn’t okay with them, I think they should politely ask their colleagues to stop using them, which is, in my opinion, a better compromise than just not having reactions altogether.

I think the best shot you have atm is simply to accept donations on LiberaPay, OpenCollective, or wtv.

Or, you know, run a crypto miner script on the website /s

For a developer platform I find this unprofessional

I know I’m off-topic, but why is it so? I find them rather neat, as they allow for quick and concise responses (yes, no, agree, disagree, interesting, curious, yay, gj, etc).

I think they could be added, as long as they can be visually disabled in clients, for people that don’t want the clutter (or maybe neatly hide them away, while still being in reach if needed). Also, custom emojis for sure, even in text content.

Yeah it seems the link is nowhere to be found on their page… Lol

Why are you suspicious of Monero forks? I dislike the premise and background of Mobile Coin too (and its weird tie to Signal) but a Monero fork doesn’t seem inherently bad.

Sounds like a nice filter that could be added :)
You should open a GitHub issue too

I’m not sure, but I don’t believe so.

+1 for teddit. I’ve also seen libreddit, but I prefer teddit since it’s more akin to

Edit: also worth mentioning, teddit is to reddit like invidious is to youtube – you can’t login with an actual reddit account to vote and comment.

I mean, the top stupid complaint here was about Microsoft’s Teams not working properly. Are you kidding me? Of course it’s not going to work properly, they will do everything in their power to prohibit from working on anything but Windows if they could.

This, this and this. We’ve seen tech giants deliberately crippling competitors in order to make themselves look better in the picture, so why are they surprised Microsoft Teams doesn’t work as well outside their system? The LTT team is focused on tech news, surely they know some of this. I’d love to see Anthony (the Linux guy over there) commentate on this series, or give them some slight nudges every now and then, even if just in the script or video revision. I’m sure some stuff would be cleared up much better.

If so, I would stay away.

Are you saying this because it is a Monero fork or because it is a Monero fork? As in, don’t you trust it because it’s Monero or because it is a fork?

If not, I would still stay away, because I can’t find the source code anywhere.

The Website Obesity Crisis

Found this article on HN comment thread. Really nice read!
It clearly shows problems in 2015 and made accurate predictions that in 2020 things would be even worse…

Is Your Privacy An Illusion? (Taking on Big Tech) - Smarter Every Day 263

It’s great to see a big channel (10M subs) talking about the issue, but Destin failed to point out that GAFAM and others collect data because it benefits them immensely for targeted ads and other uses, and not just because the government asks for it. It sort of painted a nice pictured for them, like…

I just found this article and thought it was rather neat. I haven’t carefully read it all through, though. …
