Ok, so I'm downloading a photo from Firefox, and the address bar says it's a png, but the download dialogue says it's a webp. What's the deal with that? 🤨

Also, I want to recommend Stealth Bastard Deluxe. One of the games I've played the most in recent years. Fun puzzle game available for Linux and 90% off: humblebundle.com/store/stealth

Jesus! I just played a game against a human online, and I was winning so much I felt bad for the other player. Until the very end when I made a couple of mistakes and we ended up in exactly this same position! And then they won! smh! Great game!

Have you heard of the Royal game of Ur?

It's a 4000 year old game found in a royal gravesite in the ancient city of Ur. What's truly amazing about it is that we've also found a clay tablet with the rules for it! The oldest rule book in the world!

I had not heard of it, until I found this beautiful Free and open source online digital version of it! It looks great, and it's fun too! And you can play two player locally

Give it a go and let me know what you think!

Happy Public Domain Day 2021! We should be able to celebrate a lot more works becoming free each year (terms are indefensibly long, even if you believe that copyright law itself has merit), but let's celebrate the growth of the commons regardless. This article has a good overview of some works that are now free:

I'm excited to share my #apconf2020 talk, "Decentralized Social Media vs the Trolls."

In it, I tell how the #Fediverse, a #decentralized social network, rallied together to isolate an invasive right wing extremist group through codes of conduct, human moderators, and strong moderation tools.

Thanks to @ashfurrow, @emi, @maffsie, @catgirl, @laurelai and all the folks who gave me their time and perspective.

Denne nye App clip-greia høres ved første ørekast ut som en god idé fra Apple. Tullete å måtte laste ned tusen forskjellige apper man bare bruker én gang eller to. Men på den annen side virker App clips også unødvendig, hva med å bare bruke en nettside/nettapp? Det kan også linkes til med QR/NFC. Tanker? cw.no/artikkel/apple/app-clip-
