It's very jarring when the FBI complains that China™️ is stealing proprietary vaccination information... Your methodology for vaccination should be shared. What's wrong with you.

Mark my words: the free desktop is going to get right and properly EEE'd within the next five years, and none of you are going to lift a fucking finger to stop it because Microsoft is all cuddly and friendly now.

You know, I've been thinking for a while that the whole "hacker culture" was about free and open access to everything. Everything open source, free knowledge, kind of an anarchist movement, encrypt all your shit, fuck the government, and all of that. Early hackers were extremely proficient and just contributed their part for an open society.

And all of that has devolved into a blockfest running on open source software where everyone judges you by your political ideas (and immediately blacklist your entire network if they don't align), where people are unironically trying to have software licenses make it illegal for "bad" people to use what they wrote, and have ridiculously strict code of conducts that dictates who can participate and who can't. And those who don't respect the CoC will quickly be banned and publicly ridiculed.

Fellas, this isn't what open source is about.

so doordash does predatory pricing and opens accounts for restaurants that haven't asked for anything, reselling the food for less than they pay for it (reasoning being that right now they just burn investors' money, and when they're the only ones on the market they'll raise the prices).

A person on HN has exploited that to get free meals to homeless people and make a little money off doordash

guess what HN has to say about it

c++ bad

why are tuples just part of the stdlib

why is slicing vectors so complicated

Facebook has just bought giphy.com for $400m.

A website which hosts free gifs. Valued at four-hundred million dollars. And the majority of those gifs come from media created by costumers/writers/mic operators/camera techs etc. who don't see the value they create normally, let alone in hyper-inflated purchases like this.

How does this make any sense? It doesn't.
