Beer delivery you say?

Last year, I paid ~$600 in red light fines. In LI, you can turn right on red, I suppose I missed the signs that advised against those particular red lights. <Grumble>

“In the past weeks, Gov. @GregAbbott_TX has:
- Banned red light cameras
- OK'd beer delivery
- Protected free speech on college campuses
- Allowed kids to run lemonade stands
- Signed the Save Chick-fil-A bill
- Banned deceptive telemarketer calls
Let's all be more like Texas.”

These are hardware kill switches.

Not a webcam cover. Not software disabled Wi-Fi. Kill switch.

Laptops should have these.

Ours do.

Keep in mind that these entities are each paying $10 million for the privilege of running a node aka unlimited access to transactional data. What this announcement *actually* means is that now Visa, MC, PayPal *and* Facebook are *each* getting unfettered access to users' data. twitter.com/fintechfrank/statu

the real problem with discord that makes them truly evil is that they sell their solution as being something that provides self-determination.

when you move your community to discord, you start a what they call a "discord server."

to be clear, there is not really any such thing as a "discord server," this is just marketing terminology for group functionality.

they call it a discord "server" on purpose: they want to communicate the idea that you have full autonomy on your own "discord server," when in reality you are still at the mercy of discord as a service provider. this is truly evil, this goes beyond a lack of transparency to actively lying to potential users. not even Slack does this.

we must build real alternatives to these predatory services.

How much would you pay for a plugin that duplicated some functionality of ?

idea: create a plugin that trades video traffic with other , then you wouldn't need . Bandwidth/storage is cheaper than when YouTube started, so the barrier to entry to compete with YouTube is quite low.

What's a good Mastodon instance for launching a new business?

Business Idea: "De-monetized Directory" - Buy ads direct from creators that have been banned or de-monetized.

de-monetization + censorship = market opportunity for buying direct from creators.
