Imagine if YouTube was shut down.

It would be a literal tragedy for the human race. Billions of hours worth of creativity would disappear in an instant.

"That would never happen!" some believe.

But it already has.

Remember Google+? All of it's gone forever.

Or remember all that media stored on MySpace? It's vanished.

We must stop depending on Big Tech to archive our data. Their mandate is to profit off our data, not preserve it.

"We're making something that you've never see before" is a guarantee that I've seen it in a million different places

Datacentre på kunstige energiøer 100 kilometer ude på havet?

Sikkert et "sjovt" sted at være ansat som remote hands. Men mon ikke det vil vise at datacentre ikke skaber "åhhh så mange jobs" i driftsfasen som de ellers plejer at feste over...

'As for educators, the recommendations are simple if a bit old-fashioned: Give teachers time to skip the apps altogether and develop trusting teacher-student relationships through
face-to-face interactions that don’t leave digital trails' #edutech #along

Look, if your kid isn't doing piracy at some age, you'll probably will need to have a serious conversation with them. They might be harbouring thoughts about capitalism and it's good to openly talk about. So that they'll understand the consequences of their choices in that.

@Ibber Tak :)
Kom til at købe domænet i tidernes morgen, dengang da bl.a. DR havde url'er der sluttede på /ondemand :D

These are NGC5426 and NGC5427, collectively known as Arp271, a pair of interacting spiral galaxies located about 130 million lightyears away.

I took this image back in 2018 with VIMOS, an instrument at ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile. I was the Instrument Scientist, and that night we were decommissioning the instrument to make room for a new one, so I decided to take one last farewell image to celebrate all the cool science done with this instrument over the years.

@andreasio problem is if you make a promise not to track - and then - apparently - do

Why is your privacy fucked? You should go ask at the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection conference where the brightest minds in the field meet, sponsored by Google and Meta.

Hurtig analyse. Satire er en kritik der holder magten for nar og udstiller hykleri. Hvis man caster videnskab som en magt, har man allerede godkendt konspiratorikernes dagsorden. Og ikke forstået hvad videnskab er. Videnskab står systematisk for sin egen kritik. Det er det fine ved videnskab. Videnskab er selvafhyklende.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain


The finance sector doesn't make things. It doesn't grow food. It doesn't teach your kids. It doesn't heal your injuries. It doesn't house you. It doesn't clothe you. Finance for its own sake makes nothing - except money. Our future survival depends on radical, mass-scale material production. So long as the finance sector is running the show, all we'll get is a casino.

Er jeg det eneste menneske i verden, der bare godt vil have spiralblokke med papir uden striber eller tern, eller har I andre bare en hemmelig klub, hvor I køber dem et særligt sted, som I holder mig udenfor, så jeg går her og mangler? Eller må købe hos boghandlerens, der er dyre, fordi de er med 90 grams papir… #stationary #papirvareelsk

After using tablets, laptops, smart boards, wireless casting, video, educational video games, pretty much everything included in Google Suite for Education, and smart textbooks, I can confidently say that the most effective teaching tool I've ever experienced in a classroom is a whiteboard.

#fridayfollow for lidt #microfiction

Start med @MicroSFF for de små scifi historier

@Teryl_Pacieco er blandede historier fra eksotiske lande

@welshpixie for små horror historier, og en masse tegninger, fraktaler og noget fra haven

@rob_haines er måske mere poesi end historier... har måske ikke læst nok

@FutzleFiction små.. finurlige ... historier gerne med et lille tvist.

Men du kan også bare give hashtagget sin egen kolonne det advancerede web-view (eller er der andre måder?)
