what i should probably be doing with spare programming cycle is learning rust and sysop kit, but then i think "you know i bet you could do a p2p fediverse with dat and activitypub"
i would like to remind all of my american friends, especially if you are a fast food worker or some kind of equivalent, the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) has the first federally recognised fast food workers' union.
if you've ever thought of becoming an IWW member, dues are on sliding scale from $6/mo for those who are paid less than minimum wage, up to $36/mo for the most privileged wage earners; and dues are collected voluntarily, never by your boss as part of gross pay deductions.

Now I can render a terminal in #WebVR that opens a shell to an Ubuntu instance running on my phone.
The goal is to make a VR development environment. 😁
The Political Compass model is based on a right wing premise: that authoritarianism and libertarianism are opposed, that what it calls the "Economic-Right" can sometimes oppose authoritarianism.
The most extreme advocates of right-wing libertarianism are in fact just advocates for authoritarianism of a slightly different kind.
To classify one's own beliefs according to the Political Compass is to classify oneself according to a right-wing model of politics.
@garbados By the way, I just wanted to say thanks again for making dat-librarian! It's been really handy for the pinning service thing in working on. 💜
Thank god the entire industry hasn't decided to revolve around Blink/Chromium for 95% of the web's browser traffic, or else Google would have an unlimited ability to push forward whatever bullshit standard they wanted.
Wait hold on, my producer is telling me something [places finger on my ear piece]
