Gradients of technological democracy (in order of least to best):

- one app, one service (WhatsApp).
- open api (multiple apps, some of which open source), one service (some information providers).
- idem, but service is self-hostable (closed source, such as MS Echange)
- idem, but service is open source (Nextcloud Talk, Matrix)
- standardized protocol (e-mail, irc, xmpp, activitypub)

@aral maybe a bit less expressive, but way shorter:

const [ proxyType, proxyProtocol ] = originalProtocol === 'ws' ? [ 'WebSocket', 'wss' ] : [ 'HTTP', 'https' ]

Bon, le vote par correspondance a l'air d'être complètement acquis à Biden donc il faudra attendre, mais l'espoir reprend.

J'adore! 😆

Virtual meetings are basically modern seances.

"Elizabeth are you here?"
"Make a sound if you can hear us."
"Is anyone else with you?"
"We can't see you. Can you hear us?"

@bortzmeyer @frederic cet avertissement est encore valable ? Le tweet date de mars. Ou il fait toujours imprimer le PDF ?

Et après ils interdiront les apps de mail pour la même raison ?

RT @Khrys: Google is removing Fediverse apps from the Play Store because they can be used to access hate speech

privateinternetaccess.com/blog

Google’s censorship actions are [...] in line with the continuing erosion of free speech by big tech companies and the continued descent down the slippery slope of censorship which starts with hate speech but ends with doublethink. Looks like we’re picking up speed.
