Facebook has recently admitted that its greatest threat, looking to the future, is federated platforms.

Many federating platforms (like PeerTube, a video sharing software, or WriteFreely, a blogging software) are springing up around the federating system.

Capitalist websites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are getting progressively worse in how they act, in their quest for profits.

Meanwhile, the fediverse is only getting stronger, powered by money through voluntary donations and the hard work of thousands of admins.

Federation is a positive path forward for the future of the internet, has liberated people and allowed them to form regenerative communities, and is helping to educate people about alternative ideas and methods to those promoted by capitalist business.

It's really encouraging to see the fediverse doing so well.

Strange and unwelcomed take:

No MMO is as compelling as playing Minecraft online

With Minecraft there is a permanence to your actions, and just the basic required gameplay permanently alters the world for other players

Because of this, massive old servers like 2b2t have a untold history of their own separate from the core design of the game

the Draugr Hole environment is designed to feel like a race against the inevitable reality of your developing ringworm in real life. there are usually infectious skeevers to literalize this threat in-game, but this is icing on the cake that is the oppressive and pervasive sense of stagnant, fungal, damp squalor

When bots get caught in a loop it's hilarious every time, I still think about how (back in the spring) my bot said "MADS πŸ‘ MADS πŸ‘ MADS πŸ‘" but just kept going

+ I'm old enough to remember the Web of the 1990s/ 2000s.
It was a maze. You followed hypertext links, stumbled into forums and early troll-caves, used Slashdot and GoTo, experimented with LiveJournal and Blogger.

It wasn't safe, it was filled with weirdness, appealed heavily to geeks and loners. Being on the web in that era was a serious trip.

But it wasn't corporate. It wasn't the tool of major governments, yet. It was defiantly decentralised, and when you were online...

... you felt free.

Me: I should sign up for that disney thing and watch the mandalorian

Also me: I should sign up for that CBS thing and finally watch discovery and watch picard when it comes out

Also me: hahaha I haven't even watched stranger things S3 yet, how the fuck to people have time to watch all these shows
