Psst...don't tell anyone, but we have a new release candidate for Synapse v0.99.0rc2, v0.99 is the final minor version ahead of the upcoming v1.0 release. It contains all the S2S r0 API work which we need to test before declaring 1.0, help much appreciated https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/releases/tag/v0.99.0rc2
@icedragon Mastodon setzt er auf, aber Matrix nicht. 🤔
guess which all-powerful tech monopoly is breaking ublock origin (and umatrix, and likely many other similar add-ons, such as noscript) in their browser, which happens to be the most popular browser in the world?
who could have foreseen this? who would ever think that an advertising company's web browser would end up breaking compatibility with an ad blocker? frankly i'm shocked
@tom you're also attending Revision?
“I’m against surveillance capitalism but Google’s service is listed first on my app because it is so popular” is the “I’m against the tobacco industry but I offer anyone coming into my home a cigarette because smoking’s so popular” of tech.
If you offer people easy access to cigarettes without so much as a warning about the risks, you might want to reconsider whether you really are against Big Tobacco or whether you’re doing their bidding.

i feel like 10-15 years ago the web was a lot more mundane. there were less people on the internet, everyone was just someone else who was sitting at a desktop computer doing nothing. pretty much every image you saw on the web was taken on a compact digital camera in someones poorly-lit living room and then edited using microsoft paint, and then put up onto a forum a couple days later. nobody was vlogging on a skateboard. there wasnt that much to talk about. pace of life seemed slower
now and again on youtube you get recommended a video thats inexplicably from 10 years ago and its like, extremely poor quality but much nicer than anything on youtube now, itll be like some friends making a music video to their favorite song in their parents kitchen in 240p 12fps, and theyll all have extremely 2008 eye makeup, and theyre just doin it because its fun and putting it online
