I watched the video with great interest, then immediately downloaded a copy from YouTube when I first saw it, because I was sure it wasn't going to be around later in the day to show my friend. I assumed it would get struck by YouTube, but here we are.

This lead me to realize that I'm now habituated to an environment where telling the truth seems like a forbidden act.

Iím looking forward to twitter. When they start hosting video in a serious way and also long documents that will be very interesting. I think itís ironic because all the people defiantly switching to a decentralized platform are just making twitters success more inevitable by drawing attention to platforms that will fail regardless rather than one of twitters serious competitors. The real decentralized system has been in front of us the whole time: the market. Only nerds will ever use federated, decentralized systems, only nerds will ever accept the trade offs that come with them. Regular people donít act on principle, especially on things they donít know anything about. Centralized platforms like twitter will continue to dominate because huge numbers of people will use them and feed them with the breath of life.

Lina Khan may have written great papers but she isn't fit for the job. She harbors a hate for big tech and cannot be impartial in her dealings.
See her recent attempt to prevent Meta from acquiring Within. There is no sane, level-headed case that could possibly paint this acquisition as an antitrust violation. Even most legal experts will agree that Lina Khan's case is a stretch at best.
It's clear that this case is simply motivated by a hatred for Meta more than anything rational, and such decision making can harm the emergence of nascent technology such as AR/VR.

100% this. How many acts of violence by lonely men would be avoided if they had just had the opportunity to go out, drop $150 and have sex. Especially sex that catered to whatever fetish they happened to indulge in. I have no scientific numbers to back this but I am willing to be the answer is "a lot". I feel like if an isolated, angry virgin was able to have sex in a non judgmental environment they would lose their hostility and likely be all the better for it.

If people consider marriage as a contract of exchange, then it is already a form of legalized prostitution. Monogamy might be a bigger underlying problem.

Rails if I want a database, Sinatra if I don't.

Ruby just... wants you to be happy while you're using it. And in the long run of life, that matters.

Python wants to be correct, Java wants you to not make mistakes, JS is still figuring itself out, Scala wants to do hard things...

Ruby wants you to be happy.

IMO - There's a lot of very worthwhile follow-on effects of that - everything from libraries (generally) being just that much easier to get going with, to lower-stress teams having better communication, to debates instead of fights (I'm looking at you, PEP572). Ruby is nice so we are nice :)

technically they didn't say "python wants you to be correct" they said "python wants to be correct" but I'm not sure if that distinction was intended to be meaningful

honkler 40 minutes ago [flagged] [dead] | parent | context | flag | vouch | favorite | on: What is Google doing with its open source teams?

with GPL license, you allow a man to have coitus with your wife IF AND ONLY IF he takes pictures of the acts and shares it with the entire town.
With BSD/MIT license you allow him to have a great time even if he keep it to himself.
Both of these are instances of cuckoldry (excuse my words). The better alternative obviously is to keep source to yourself and sell software.
