I still get this behavior on 6.1. This seems to happen because it shows each notification immediately. Could the panel be a bit more clever and use a timed interval to check whatever the delta in notification are only from the point of inquiry and cap it to about 50 with a cursor to hint at more? That way, even if 2,000 notifications came in, it wouldn't try to display them ALL at once. And some duplication of the notification could occur with hashing of the notification's serialized form versus repeating the same thing (especially if it's the same thing over and over).

To be honest, language changes but ever so slightly. Pirates were always hated by nation-states and landlords were also hated by the people locked to the lands. Old is new, new is old.

I've been watching Steal This Film (2006) and just have been nodding my head to things. Because this is also the kind of infra that'd prevent the information around mutual aid, history, etc can be kept as it's getting harder to preserve information.

Why doesn't it freak people out that a set of companies have legal backing to throw you in jail or fine you if you "steal" a movie but companies can't be automatically fined and/or shut down for fraud, corruption, etc?

They even had actors and commercials against it (scabs, tbh). Shit, back in the day, CABLE was considered piracy because media companies couldn't sell access to episodes individually (and look at what happened). Lol, it's really again an issue of capitalism.

It's kind of wild that media companies only hate piracy because they can't make money off popular content if everyone can access it. It doesn't mean people won't pay for it (and that's usually what the MPAA exists to protect: shareholders, not the workers). Something to look into.

Been debugging an issue in Sele for three hours, pulled in a mitm proxy tool only to finally see the issue in my tests once I bubbled up the error from another library I've written. The call's within the house!

i am, yes, because its the only relevant aspect of indieweb in the context of the thread that i wrote, as far as i can tell

I think that framing isn't then placed on the IndieWeb as a whole. There's definitely direct site-to-site engagement. Like I'd like or reply to things on Aaron's site or even RSVP to events that we have coming up. Some people sync commit logs to their sites and other manage their gameplay.

and indieweb has always been hyper concentrated. its kind of unfortunate that it went the route it did, tbh. they couldve done something really interesting but instead its just... twitter plus inter-server distribution :\

is the comparison to twitter mainly b/c of the text-centric nature of it? if so, I think that's an artifact of startup costs (easier to share text than a cross-site interactive tool of sorts) but there is some rumbling of work moving in that direction

its very not p2p. like, anything that is "aaS" cannot be p2p because p2p is inherently about everyone in the network having equivalent roles, and to @SarahJamieLewis's point about decentralization, about power being anti-concentrated

Is there a specific place I can read about this point? I do agree with it and want to learn more.

Matrix Third Room

Back when the VRChat debacle took place, I’d rambled quite a lot about the idea of a standards-based truly-distributed VR system. I probably mentioned how back in the day I was designing something like that, and was intending to use XMPP as the actual transport mechanism; in my more recent reevaluation of the idea I was thinking that using WebRTC to stream the actual realtime data (voice, character animation, etc.) would be the way forward.
