Dans la pratique — les révolutionnaires se trompent toujours, parce qu’ils croient toujours la vérité trop simple, ont trop confiance en eux-mêmes et s’imaginent qu’ils ont trouvé et déterminé le terme du progrès humain; tandis que le propre du progrès, c’est de n’avoir pas de terme, de n’atteindre ceux qu’on lui propose qu’en les transformant, de ne résoudre les problèmes qu’en en changeant les données.

— J-M Guyau, Esquisse d’une morale sans obligation ni sanction 1885

The fediverse? really nice. Application instances talking to each other.

The fediverse on That would be mind blowing. Application instances talking to each other, and several applications sharing the same per-user data storage. Neat.

Just testing with a picture from January 2020 at this Paris Court of Appeal.

And... come on. Before retweeting evidenceless allegations of systematic *anything* maybe try to look at what the alleged perpetrators are doing on this space.

Hey people. Listening to an individuals presenting themselves as victims doesn't require you to suspend thinking and believe everything you read on the internet. Don't choose sides to stories you know absolutely nothing about.

Combien de fois les bagages abandonnés se sont avérés être vraiment des trucs dangereux et pas juste des trucs oubliés par des étourdis ? Je me demande vraiment à quoi ça rime tout ce cirque auquel on a droit à chaque fois qu'un bagage oublié est trouvé dans un train...

The EU border police Frontex is under fire for its involvement in human rights violations at the EU’s borders. Now, they want to silence those exposing their wrongdoing.

Frontex is taking us to court.

Design goals for a FOSS search engine:

- FOSS but centralized, don't bother with distributed crawling or federation or anything, at least not until we can prove that we can do it the easy way. Apply the SourceHut model.

- Don't blithely crawl the whole WWW. Tier 1 sites opt-in to being crawled and are manually reviewed by a human to establish lack of shit. Backlinks from tier 1 sites are crawled to form a tier 2 graph. There is no tier 3. Searches prioritize tier 1 results. (De-emphasizes blogspam in favor of primary sources, entirely eliminates SEO gaming).

- Attempt to index any data source (HTML, Gemtext, man pages, a CSV file) and return any results that either (1) the User-Agent can present, or (2) we have some code to render in a format the U-A can present, or (3) the user explicitly asked for

Problem: who's going to pay for it? Answer: probably SourceHut if we ever get to, say, 10x our current revenue.
