(re)introduction 

Been here for a while but I've always been lazy and never did this so here we go:

I'm Damien (he/him), from France, living in California, I post about:
- computers
- nerd/weeb shit
- music
- meta stuff
- programming
- politics sometimes (fuck nazis and terfs)
- video games
- i probably forgot some other things b/c it's late and stuff

And that's mostly it ✨

Maybe browsers should belong to the people and not corporations, is what I’m saying.

Maybe something (browser) that’s required to basically exist in the digital world shouldn’t depend on profit, maybe.

Maybe it’s fucked up that the tools required to access what is essentially a public utility at this point are built by for profit companies only because it has become impossible for anyone else to build them in a sustainable way.

At that point just stop supporting open standards and just start building Google Binary Web Format or something to run code, since nobody cares anymore.

Looking forward to having to use Google’s documentation to develop on Google’s browser to push on Google’s version of the Web. /s

So Twitter seems to be testing an UI change where they don’t show the β€œgif” indicator anymore and it’s tripping me up so much

Isn't it great how the only companies who can afford to ship a browser these days are huge corporations that already have a massive wealth, thus don't need to "worry" about profit AND also can lobby to have anything implemented by everyone?

I had to use a sandbox Salesforce account at work those past few days and:
- I feel sorry for anyone who has to spend their lives in this software
- I refuse to believe I'm not looking at a time window into the early 2000s

being a 'power user' means having a 'days since i last yelled at a computer' counter that's just the number zero painted on a wall
