Si vous avez vu killedbymozilla.com/, considérez le fait que Mozilla a principalement été ces dernières années un laboratoire de R&D : Rust, Servo, AV1, WebAssembly... que des technologies open-source qui profitent au domaine public !

C'est donc incomparable avec Google (et killedbygoogle.com/) qui n'a jamais libéré ces technologies, et qui les a juste utilisé pour accumuler plus de données sur vous.

How do we get back to the interoperable roots of the Internet to replace Big Tech’s walled gardens? @AmandineLePape@twitter.com @doctorow@twitter.com @arcalinea@twitter.com @mmasnick@twitter.com will be discussing it at the next Decentralized Web Meetup on Tues Sep 22 9:30-11:30AM PT - Join them!

I have released a new version of the appstream crate. It's more or less a rewrite of the old version, it supports almost every tag supported by the specs & it's now fully documented!

You've probably heard Zuboff's excellent coinage "Surveillance Capitalism" and perhaps you've read the paper it was introduced in, or the book that it led to.

Today, I've published a response to that book, "How to Destroy Surveillance Capitalism."

, the client for , will release version 4.4 next Friday. Now is a good time to test the nightly version and check if it doesn’t break anything with your homeserver compared to 4.2. are also welcome.

That’s it for now. Sorry about the noise. I’ll follow up if there is any new development.

After I explained the problem, the person on the phone asked me to hold on for a second while they were running some tests on my line. A couple minutes later, they told me they indeed were able to see all the disconnections and that they would escalate the issue so someone would investigate. Issue #4: ever heard of monitoring? If they’re able to run something that shows the problem, they should be able to detect the problem automatically and take care of it preemptively.

So I resigned myself to call them. Went through the dial maze, and… waited 20 minutes until a human being picked up on their end. Issue #3: their phone support is unresponsive (which is what I was trying to avoid in the first place).

I was then given a choice between a video call with someone from their hotline (ugh, ) and text chat. The latter sounded great so I chose it. The page never loaded. There was no other option like opening a support ticket, leaving a message in a text field or contacting them via email. Issue #2: their online support is broken.

I went to my account page and found the support link. They have a wizard that asks me what’s wrong. Sounds good. I choose the item that says my Internet is down. A page tells me to hold on while they test my line and a few seconds later they tell me that everything is fine, kthxbye. Issue #1: there was no “my Internet went down a lot this morning but right now I am actually able to access this page so bear with me and please have a look at what was going on earlier”.

For this case I would have preferred an asynchronous workflow, i.e. my favourite option is *not* to be stuck with a phone call, I’d rather write a thorough description of the issue and let them deal with it, then come back to me, asking for details if necessary.
