If i had any free time and collaborators

I think the 2d printer industry and the eyeglass industry could really stand some DIY open source disruption.

The main manufacturers have too many end-user hostile monopoly powers.

Interesting that they include "users" there, I hope that means the first purchaser. A lot of longer-life products (eg vehicles, electric appliances) get sold in second-hand markets and arrive at end-of-life in the hands of the poorest layers of the population. Putting all the responsibility of recycling on the people who can least afford to make it happen is a major cause of the waste-to-landfill and illegal dumping problems we need to solve.

What if web pages had to pay me every time theirJavascript ran on my computer and put my CPU to 100%

I think that would be fair

That sad feeling when 1 individual is continuously passive aggressive, constantly adding fuel to an already burning bridge and with every conversation or interaction you just disengage from the project even more. About 2 more months to go.

@yaaps @silver I say Federation is a bad idea in general, but that’s actually an oversimplification. What must not be federated are identities. We can have federated instances that help us share our data and find each other, but our identity shouldn’t be decided by those instances. We have the power to assert our own identities now, using public key cryptography. As long as any asymmetric “public key” encryption is done on a machine we ourselves control, we don’t have to beg for an identity from any authority.

When we do have to beg, the bigger instances can use that to pressure people to join them, forming walled gardens and ending federation. So federated servers good. Federated identities bad.

To summarize Ardern: we cannot deny climate change, and we can't in fact do more of the same if we expect things to get better. It'll hurt short term! But we have momentum and we're ready to keep moving. Believe that it'll work long term.

To summarize Collins: let's go back to status quo prior to Labour, denying climate change, making the rich richer once again. And no, J, the lower middle-class (if we can even call them that) will not spend any money they'd gain from dubious tax gains in times of uncertainty.

@mperham Tried running Sidekiq 5 via SystemD on Ubuntu 16 LTS. It starts up but crashes + is restarted after WatchdogSec is reached. Does Sidekiq 5 need some special config other than Type=simple?

Reposting a comment I made on HN regarding the proposed EU ban on facial recognition technology:

>I love coming to these threads to watch the crowd who makes their living from invading the public's privacy attempt to rationalize their worldview, find loopholes, etc. If your job is mass surviellance, it has always been unethical and the law is catching up to you. The purpose of these kinds of laws isn't to bring your business in line - it's to put you out of business.
