Just saw an interesting post from a major cosmetics manufacturer:

"An audit of our social content and strategy demonstrated that on average, only 6% of our followers are serviced with our content in their newsfeed because we don’t pay to play. "

...they have millions of followers on Facebook etc, but almost no one sees their posts.

Their response is to try promoting their own websites instead of ad-based third parties'.

It does prove the usefulness of #federation that through all the #Matrix outage, my account was not affected at all. Most of the people I chat to are on other servers than the one affected.

@fribbledom Yes, they were! I still have a few issues from back then, including the one where DOS tested some UNIXes and predicted they may be the future! Turns out true, right? Just maybe not precisely the SCO, AIX for PC or Unixware or whatever variants they tested 😄😄(Linux wasnt out yet)

@sehnsucht@bsd.network @15F9 OMG, so there’s the option of running IRIX on a machine with loads of CPU power, RAM, disk space and gbit ethernet now without going on an expensive archeological expedition on ebay! 🙂

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

Looks like 0-RTT in TLS1.3 comes with a quite high price: Vulnerability to replay attacks.

If you are one of the early adopter, check that your application is not affected as this is a fundamental problem on protocol level.

@cy ...or give matrix a spin. It is somewhat similar to email in terms of its client-to-server and server-to-server model, after all.

@thomasfuchs Haha, yeah, they can even give you “jetlag”. I have very high powered “ultra” daylight fluorescents in my basement. Once, in winter, I spent three hours in my workshop down there. When I came back up, it was night outside and my body clock was rather messed up for a while 😅
