Imagine if YouTube was shut down.

It would be a literal tragedy for the human race. Billions of hours worth of creativity would disappear in an instant.

"That would never happen!" some believe.

But it already has.

Remember Google+? All of it's gone forever.

Or remember all that media stored on MySpace? It's vanished.

We must stop depending on Big Tech to archive our data. Their mandate is to profit off our data, not preserve it.

#Quetre is now hosted on @codeberg too!
Migration from Github was very smooth and fast.

Feels good not being restricted under a closed-source platform.

If politicians, or anyone really, believed #TikTok executives when they said China wasn’t accessing private U.S. user data stored on U.S. servers, I have a bridge to sell you. Wait, multiple bridges. I have a gaggle of bridges to sell you.

Hello beautiful people. I am publishing a release allowing video editing in the app. For now, you can mute and trim the beginning and end of the video, but it shouldn't be too hard to add a lot of other features in the future like cropping for example 😄

It does make the APK size a lot bigger but that will get better in a future update :)

I think having the "Be the change you want to see" mindset has been very beneficial for me.

Tired of Windows and MS? Changed to Linux and I'm happy.

Not comfortable with Google? Moved pretty much all my stuff outside of Google's hands, except one old email I barely use.

Tired of Youtube's ads and stuff? I use now Freetube.

Twitter gives me headache? Deleted my Twitter, use Fedi now.

Need cloud stuff? Self host.

Can't find addon downloader on Linux for Elder Scrolls Online? Made my own! :)

People say, "The Internet is forever".

This is not true. So much on the Internet has disappeared. I would state further that more has disappeared from the Internet than currently what exists.

This is one reason I wish that a P2P content delivery system was the default: because not only would it deliver information faster, information would depend less on WHERE it is and more on WHAT it is -- thereby creating an avenue for redundancies.

New version of @phpstan@twitter.com was released today with my small, but cool improvement: support for relative paths in `editorUrl`, which makes it usable with / environments 🙂

@reiver people these days talk a lot about "mobile first". I feel like we need to push that way back.

Like text first. Does it work well in a text based browser? Okay cool. Maybe add some css add images for fancy people. But does it still look good in a text browser? Okay good. Now does it look good on a phone too? Good. Now maybe we can make it look neat on desktop too. Still got time? Maybe add some optional JavaScript for page transitions or drag and drop or something
