Nordnick, why not both lmao

I remember there being a fediverse project for VR, with 3D avatars and all that stuff.

@malteengeler Wasn't it already dated when Linden Lab claimed the same thing 20 years ago with Second Life?

@malteengeler "The next digital era will change everything" - I think some people said that about Second Life too.

@malteengeler Well, they depict that this false life is on a space-opera kinda virtual wold. Disgusting.

@malteengeler Facebook rebranding will lead to several others joining the fediverse after thinking they are the same things. Although of course more will want to stay here.

Oh yes, this is one image to keep. Weirdo's entering a child's bedroom...

@malteengeler I don't get that when billionaires want to shove their new dystopic sh1t onto the planet, every media outlet - yes, every, even yootoobers and twitchers - start ramping it up and speaking about it as the next logical step for reality,

But when ecological, humane & ethical approach to tech that has been developing for ages is presented, they go like:
"that would never happen. Its too idealistic, its not concrete. We need to be pratical and think of what exists already and make abritrarely little incremental changes"

@olamundo @malteengeler yeah but, in the long run, we win anyway.

I've been using libre/free open source software with provenance older than the FSF and GNU, e.g. Citadel, BSDs, guess what?

More or less everyone uses code from BSDs.

Microsoft, Google, Apple.

AWS is based around Linux mostly.

The real annoyance: why do bozo robber barons such as Bezos, Gates, Zuckerberg et al make money off of things that so many of us have been co-creating for free?

Being a jerk isn't a good look IMHO.

@malteengeler definitely, wonderful times ahead of us… eh wait, it’s Zuckerberg and Facebook, well never mind 💁‍♂️

(I gotta have some weird illusions sometimes lmao)

@malteengeler I dunno, that magazine cover already looks like it came straight out of the 80's.


Why do millionaires want to turn my living room wall into grape bubble gum and then melt it? 😕
