There is a French company, Archos, that had the bad luck of inventing the future a little too early multiple times.

The first time was the Archos Jukebox, which they released in 2000. It was basically a hardware MP3 wrapped around a 2.5" 6GB hard drive. That was absolutely massive capacity at the time. (The original iPod, released more than a year later, only stored 5GB.)

Like most digital music players, it got absolutely clobbered by the iPod.

Perfect explanation of the #Fediverse! A federated network of different (social media) projects, incl. #Mastodon, #Pixelfed and #Peertube. Glued together by the #ActivityPub protocol.

Just so everybody is aware, there's been a bug in a recent version of Friendica (federated software compatible with Mastodon that exists in the Fediverse) that causes some replies to basically @ everyone in the thread. If you see this, please be courteous about it as the author of that post likely didn't intend to spam everybody.

uh, I had not noticed that my follower count had doubled in the last few weeks.

h-hi everyone

Another good one: in which I reveal how I used AppleScript, iCal, and WireTap (RIP) to turn This American Life into a pirate podcast.
