> A couple years ago, I took a road trip from Wisconsin to Washington and mostly stayed in rural hotels on the way. I expected the internet in rural areas too sparse to have cable internet to be slow, but I was still surprised that a large fraction of the web was inaccessible. Some blogs with lightweight styling were readable, as were pages by academics who hadn’t updated the styling on their website since 1995. But very few commercial websites were usable (other than Google). When I measured my connection, I found that the bandwidth was roughly comparable to what I got with a 56k modem in the 90s. The latency and packetloss were significantly worse than the average day on dialup: latency varied between 500ms and 1000ms and packetloss varied between 1% and 10%. Those numbers are comparable to what I’d see on dialup on a bad day.
Tor Browser 9.5 allows website publishers to advertise their onion service to Tor users by adding HTTP headers. When Onion Location is enabled, Tor users will be prompted to opt-in to upgrade to the onion service.
My quick notes about the process of today's test published earlier: 5 steps, 3 layers, predictible and reproducible. I'll explore more with it, I like this simplicity.

There are many potential tasks and related projects that haven't been taken by anyone yet. This is an amazing chance to get funded for working on an awesome free software and decentralized internet project!

Oh btw our first spec draft release is coming soon 😍😍😍
A true YouTube killer will probably need to be an alternative front end for watching YouTube videos with the added ability to host videos directly as well. that way people could continue to watch youtube channels that have not moved yet but those who have moved or are hosting on both platforms can gain the benefits of the new platform. if the platform had the ability to show local content before youtube content when the content is the same that would be even better.

I, for one, am stopping using the wording “permissive license” and replacing that with “neoliberal”. Makes it clearer what consequences to expect (monopolies, etc). @firstname.lastname@example.org
i just stopped writing permissive-license software?
what if we all just stopped, and wrote proper free software, and actually put others in a position where they were motivated to compensate us for our labor?
