Site.js and Pi

Yesterday, I released Site.js 12.8.0 which brings initial ARM support for Linux.

What that means is that it’s now easier than ever to get a static or dynamic (Node.js) web server up and running on a Raspberry Pi.

Have a Raspberry Pi lying around? Why not dust it off this weekend and have a play and learn how to create your own basic WebSocket-based chat app! ;)

Someday I hope all of our chips were fabbed by a hardware hacker down the street

Tutorial: Build a simple chat app with Site.js

I want to take you step-by-step through building and running a basic chat app using Site.js. It’s much easier than you think, so fire up a terminal window, grab your code editor, and let’s get started!

Money is an abstraction to represent value. It's not a good abstraction, but it persists because the global economy is in a local minimum because the disadvantages of sharing information outweigh the advantages. An economy with sufficient incentives for economic agents to communicate their values directly without the abstraction layer would be more efficient, assuming the existence of an agreeable language for that communication

I could tag someone to provide details about valueflows, which is a grammar for that language, but that's probably more information than you want. The important thing to know is that the benefits of collectives aren't just for adversarial situations where we interface with capitalism. We have a basis for building economic networks that are competitive with capitalist business units comparable in size while being just to labor, community, and the environment

The issue is bringing trust-based networks up to scale with multinational corporations. This can happen, but folks are still working on the software support

My interest is in using games to replace discourse an evidence-based approach to economic, social, and political theory

Can't believe I didn't know this exists until now!

A browser plugin that simplifies following or interacting with other users on remote Mastodon instances in the Fediverse. It skips the "Enter your Mastodon handle" popup and takes you to your own "home" instance, without having to enter your Mastodon handle on remote instances.

I said to my friend, "I don't want to talk about that, I find the topic to be toxic for my energy". He said "why are our interactions always on your terms?" I said "they're not, they're on both our terms. are in nature. One person can't force another to engage in social interactions that violate their preferences, and if they were to do so, it's understandable that they may be met with refusal."

This is, hands down, one of the best articles I have read this week:

"I was wrong about Google and Facebook: there’s nothing wrong with them (so say we all)"

The new Banana Pi is going very well, the hotspot signal is very good with a small antenna attached. And today I change the root fs over to an SSD on the SATA port which is faster and mitigates the risk of SD card corruption.

Windows 10 is DRM digital RENTAL media. You will NEVER own your PC again.

There are no tasks not to be accomplished with Linux of modern that one did via Microsoft Windows.

Windows 10 setup now prevents local account creation; in practice it forces the user to sign in with a Microsoft account.

Things are going down on Stackoverflow. One mod has been fired, others have stepped down, and now there are calls for mods to strike.

I learned how to block internet access to certain programs on Linux, thanks to a reddit post. All you need is firejail and you type the following command:

firejail --net=none (appname)

So for example, firejail --net=none firefox would launch firefox with internet access blocked. It's a pretty useful command.

Hello Fediworld 👋

most of the #switchingsocial website is restored - have a look:
(or for short)

I want to thank @gemlog for preparing the web-archive version and @LuKaRo for extracting the missing pages from the Google Cache. Would have taken so much longer without you two 🙂
