*2020: Flood-filling the Mu computer*

A year ago I had a prototype of a C-level programming language mapping 1:1 to Assembly that I _thought_ could be type-safe.

What is #ecofascism: Blaming the collapse of the environment on the overpopulation while the issue is the 10% the richest.

Sooo, #twitter and #snapchat start to "federate"... and "the market" reacts positively.

Who would have thought? 😉

To me, this shows that the "smaller players" in the corpo-social-media landscape start realizing that to get a chance of survival and provide usefull features to their captive crowd, they're going to have to collaborate a little more.

Fediverse is the future. 😉
