Every FOSS video editor's release notes:
- Fixed lots of crashes.
- Fixed other crashes but only on Windows.
- Those crashes still happen on Linux.
- Added an obscure color-space conversion someone read in a white paper.
- Initial work on actually enabling video editing (separate branch).
- Massive effort to switch to a new build system. This will really simplify development going forward.
- We've decided to refactor the entire codebase so the next release will be delayed eight months.

Blockchain: decentralisation centralised on my coin.
Hint: the core of decentralisation isn’t about having a billion copies of the same database. It’s about a billion people each having their own, unique database.
PS. In a truly decentralised system, no one makes a billion dollars. *watches all the right libertarians make for the door*
PPS. A venture capitalist would never invest in a truly decentralised system. Why? See PS, above.

#IPFS braindump for my hosting idea Show more
So I want to provide static file hosting for others, on subdomains. My idea is to have a webinterface for the user, where they choose a subdomain, and enter an IPNS to their site root.
The server will then pin that, and create the DNSLink TXT record for the chosen subdomain. It will also get a letsencrypt certification, to serve a web gateway over https for the chosen subdomain.
Is this the nicest way to do this? What are the tradeoffs? This is based on my limited reading of the IPFS documentation
why should you write CLI & terminal software in 2019?
well, there are plenty of reasons, but a really good one is that desktop computing is in a state of relentless decline (backed by megacorp fiat that it be murdered ASAP) and the terminal will still be cockroaching along decades after it's impossible to use any of the GUI paradigm stuff that worked just fine in like 1998-2010.

The year is 2019 and I can’t buy a good majority of consumer technology because we lack privacy legislation and consumer protections. Example: it’s absurd that my TV came with spyware that can’t be turned off or avoided; I had to stop it from phoning home at the network level. It also came with an arbitration clause and a clause waiving the right to a class action lawsuit.
