New version of River5. After burning in the new feed reading package in feedBase, I made the same fix in the davereader package, which is the core of River5. If you were seeing garbled text in feeds in German, for example, this version should fix that. To update, quit the app, type npm update at the command line, then restart the app. #
Brent Simmons rewrote his blogging software so to handle titleless posts. It's more significant because Brent is developing a feed reader that will do a nice job of supporting titleless posts. Eventually imho all readers will. #
It's amazing to me how slowly progress is made while people prove they don't have to listen to some other person. It is true. You don't have to listen to anyone (except a cop, or your mother). But you could listen, if you wanted to know what someone else thought? Would it kill you? 💥#
Facebook built a system for sharing information. When you grant access to your Facebook account to someone else, they get access to the info you shared. That's it. That's what's going on. If you gave access to Cambridge Analytica, they got the info you shared. When you give access to any other company, same deal. If you don't want them to have your info, don't grant them access. #
