Free, subsidized world-wide shipping for products from China is a price we just can't afford to pay.
On the contrary, we're overpaying for this by further destroying our environment and economies.
Mind you: I'm not trying to bash Chinese products here. But please, let's not pretend shipping something worth $5 across the entire globe is something you'll get for free.
Design lesson of the day: when building automatic doors/turnstyles, don't put QR code reader and NFC function in the same location. iOS devices will bring up the wallet app before the QR code can get scanned!
So, dear iOS users, better not plan on being able to leave Amsterdam Centraal station without assistance... 🤦♂️
Decentralize your world.
There is of course #mastodon as federated social media.
There is good old #email as federated postbox (as long as not everyone uses GMail).
There is #peertube as a federated video platform.
There is #Riot / Matrix.org as federated group messaging.
There is #XMPP for federated 1on1 messaging.
And there is #nextcloud as federated cloud storage.
In theory most services are already federated. We only miss more users :)

@fribbledom not as weird as it would be if we made triangular pizzas, put them in circular boxes, and cut them into squares.
ZFS is really a weird filesystem. Don't get me wrong, I love the concept and the features.
But I also spent an hour this weekend trying to figure out why one of my containers is dragging down the whole machine. Turned out the reason was that the filesystem of that VM was almost full (<100MB left).
How does the filling level need to influence the I/O load?!?! 🤷♂️
@kuketzblog Ist es nicht faszinierend, dass aus einer Software zum Betrachten des Internet eine Software zur Abwehr des Internets wird?

@kylerankin When you see cheap electronics, realize that often the hardware cost is subsidized by spyware agreements and selling user data.
