It's even worse than it appears..
I am not a parody of Elon Musk.#
So maybe we need to get fascism out of our system in the US. Yes, millions of people could die, but we've been through that before and survived as a country. Maybe after going through the whole fascism mess we'll have a greater appreciation for basic freedoms.#
Billionaires got us into this mess, it's insane to think billionaires can do anything but create more messes. #
Because I’ve been asking about ActivityPub some people think it must be magic or at least interesting. It’s not — it’s a poorly designed and documented reimplementation of preexisting tech. I think only in software does his kind of BS happen. Nevertheless if we can wrangle it into something understandable and usable we might get to an interoperable replacement for Twitter without waiting years for Jack Dorsey, who journos love, to reinvent it all yet again.#
Podtrust query. I have both an iPhone and an Android phone. I like to listen to podcasts of course. I drive in areas w/o cell coverage. I need a podcast app that doesn't stream the MP3s, rather it downloads the MP3 and plays it straight through. So far all of them stream. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
