The cliché when criticizing free internet platforms has always been “You are the product.” Today a more accurate critique might be “You are the resource.” For a long time we worried that tech giants might sell our private information to the highest bidder. But with Silicon Valley throwing all its efforts into artificial intelligence, data itself has become its own currency.

It is what it is. Let's deal with it.

Wasn't it the 20th-year anniversary of Netscape browser that I saw recently? Wasn't @Mike Macgirvin in on that? I used it ...

I was a netscape employee back in the day. The code is on a hard drive that was on one of my old laptops back when I was coding 26 hours a day and sleeping for -2.

@BlaBlaNet it was considered a major step in internet development, I think, so worthy of note today still.

Congrats, @Mike Macgirvin, for that good work, and for today's on Hubzilla.

@Mike Macgirvin the amazing speed that you continue developing Hubzilla makes me think you're still doing the 26-hour thing. Netscape was my favorite way back then so you've been improving my life for longer than you've known. Thank you.

The browser has been sold to a consortium of Chinese companies.

Oh, well.

No you can get by with about half of those things. ;-)

Last week a lightning bolt came out of nowhere (SJC is near top of list for strikes) to burn our modem, wifi, and PC internet connection. The provider replaced the modem, the service guy was nice to hook up (after much grief) a wifi that a good friend had given us, and we sent the PC off to our usual technician friend to replace the burnt part. All seems to be working normally, again.

My host service was down for 33 minutes, now down again. Not a happy camper.

asmallorange. I complained on Twitter and they directed me to a blog update, were doing some maintenance. So they're at least keeping people up to date. https://status.asmallorange.com/?id=580

Maybe that makes me feel some better?
