(#sojctqq) [2 / 2]…made far worse by platforms such as Facebook etc using algorithms to encourage negativity and conflict.
I think communities such as the ones you find here have a massive advantage of not having those algorithms obviously, but also the nature of the platform (protocol?) is you kind of make your community around you. And the whole experience is more interpersonal (as much as can be in text exchanges) and full of less distractions. I could ramble on but you get it 😄
(#sojctqq) Yeah I think behind a keyboard and monitor has made people act quite differently as a society towards each other. For example people will be rarely so radical or lean to such political extremes in person, but online is a different matter. I think also this grows exponentially on larger online spaces - the reason why as communities grow they tend to become more ‘noisy’ and what some may deem ‘toxic’. I think we’ve all seen that in some way or another, on those platforms [1⁄2]
(#sg2wy5q) @firstname.lastname@example.org Yeah I agree; my issue is not that the technology can be used in such a powerful way, it’s the fact the data has to come from these big tech companies gathering it up all the wrong way.
In any case, I already use the government mandated QR check in app thing, I will not consent my data to be vacuumed up and given over by the likes of Bookface and Google 😆
(#jj56spq) @email@example.com Indeed, great for those of us privileged, but for anyone on an extremely limited internet connection (there’s still some 3rd world places I believe that only have dial-up, of all things), resources like these would be invaluable.
(#ctdtuta) I’m assuming the slight alignment difference I was talking about is simply the difference in font styling/sizing between browsers, as it’s proper text we’re dealing with. Might always just be a case of getting it ‘near enough’ 🤔
(#ctdtuta) @firstname.lastname@example.org You’re not wrong. Inkscape puts out a lot of extra stuff in the output. I use a CLI program called svgo to optimize the svg files. In the case of that logo, it went from 6kb down to 2.9kb!
(#pftowua) @email@example.com Funny you should say that because I when I was first bringing https://we.loveprivacy.club to life I had a similar thought, but then with the new static discovery thing and also the option to switch on public viewing of the cached posts I didn’t think of it any more, thinking it would probably just be extra complexity at the time. I guess the question is how difficult (or not) would it be to implement? I like the idea personally.
@firstname.lastname@example.org (#ctdtuta) i guess compared to to the old compact one it is, but the different design will always take up a bit more extra vertical space so I don’t know how much more it could be compacted.
(#ndck4vq) @email@example.com Interesting. Looks like it could be handy. Also be interested if there was something like that off-line. Also something like Shellcheck that doesn’t require a mountain of Haskell dependencies too would be cool, if you know of one.
(#ndck4vq) @firstname.lastname@example.org Yeah it’s funny some people would think it’s crazy to use CGI in this simple way yet at the same time not worry about the numerous badly written PHP sites out there that are far more vulnerable .
@email@example.com@firstname.lastname@example.org (#i2msm4a) Ad revenue. A lot of companies start out with noble enough goals but can start slipping as more revenue is needed (or wanted). Happens all the time. Even Mozilla. What you might call “selling out” I suppose.
I agree about Brave ads in the browser, think I switched them off. Found the browser itself to be quite decent, nowadays I use both Brave and Librewolf depending on what I’m doing, keep things isolated to a specific browser.
(#ndck4vq) @email@example.com Speaking of CGI, pp etc, have you any more thoughts of pp under CGI? I know it will make some web devs faint with the idea from a security standpoint but I’m sure that wouldn’t be too hard to solve with isolation or something.
(#x4gjcjq) I should note the font-family:Scheherazade part of the above is likely not a font that barely anyone has on their computer, I was just too lazy to change it 🤣 Most people probably see a sans-serif version or something but it looks OK.
(#i2msm4a) @firstname.lastname@example.org@email@example.com Regardless of that, and whether either truly exists, the end result is what I’m interested in. In this case, will the Brave ads truly be a privacy-friendly alternative to Google’s or will they slowly degrade as the desire for revenue increases? We shall see.
I don’t know much about SVGs myself but I do know that to have the pod name part be dynamic it would have to be pure text inside the SVG, not a transform path or whatever the SVG lingo is, i.e not drawn
eg. the ‘a yarn social pod’ part of my Pod’s is text
(#i2msm4a) @firstname.lastname@example.org Don’t mind this, I have been using Brave Search myself for the past week or so and been very pleasantly surprised at how accurate it’s results are. Things get interesting now though, as soon the “free” version of Brave Search will be ad-supported. Let’s see how long Brave can be “not evil”.
@email@example.com (#x4gjcjq) Good idea, and shouldn’t be too hard to implement as far as the dynamic part of the instance name etc. My problem with SVGs is I have no real artistic ability to draw anything. The extent of my ability is making text in Inkscape and converting them to paths (to preserve the font styling), which isn’t very efficient 🤣
