Oldest millennial is now 39 years old & did u know that our group owns only 3% of the totally wealth vs the boomers during the same age owned 21% of total.

This crisis has not destroyed to create just like 2008. When will the millennials gain wealth? 39 is close to middle age.

Really excited about the release of this new research into decentralized systems and UX/usability considerations... a topic very close to my heart.

It has lots of actionable advice useful to anyone building projects and products in this domain. The research includes input from folk in many communities, including #matrix and #xmpp.

Next naming issue ahead! (Hardest problem in programming.)

If you were to publish a TURN server (written in Erlang), what name would you choose? Some suggestions:

The BRRRR meme goes all the way back to the 1800s when Lincoln issued the greenback to help fight the civil war. It was a fiat currency, not backed by gold.

Selling weed literally went from major felony to essential business (open during pandemic) in much of America & yet many are still in prison. Doesn’t make sense, isn’t right.

All these social networks suck because of the lack of user controls. Let me handle my own censoring. Let me build a web of trust. I don't need to see more Yelp reviews from the guy who rated McDonalds the best hamburger ever. Show me the average rating of those I trust.

I'm currently busy rewriting large parts of the UI layer of Converse.js to use web components via .

Very impressed so far with the rendering speed of lit-html.

Lots of improvements still in the pipeline.

Looks like Converse.js has reached 2500 starts on Github.

I remember thinking back in the day that getting more than 50 stars (the biggest Github project I was working on at the time) would be nice.

Still going strong 💪

This is Johannes Kepler in a letter he wrote in 1610 telling Galileo that they need to do more telescopic observations of the Moon and Jupiter before spacecraft missions start visiting those planets. Yep, this conversation actually happened...in 1610 🤯

I find people who harp on about the Dunning-Kruger effect quite insufferable. Without fail they appear to consider themselves in the in-group of smart people. Truth is we're all incompetent in some areas and might overestimate ourselves.

Shower thought:

Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it to humanity as civilization.

Did you know that #Zoom uses #XMPP for their chat? Isn't it ironic that while large parts of the software freedom movement consider XMPP as outdated and refuse to use it, companies building commercially successful proprietary and centralized solutions on top of it... 🤔 #OpenStandards #FreeSoftware

Back in the 90s, my friend and I would listen to his dad's CD of "The Wall" by Pink Floyd.

I really like this Synthwave rendition of "Another brick in the wall".

The worse the real economic data gets the more absurd stock valuations look.

This continued fanatical attempt to save stocks against all reality is making a mockery of the global financial system.

Turns out Zoom is another hugely popular application that uses under the hood.

BTW, when developing an XMPP app, make sure to check that a particular user is allow to execute a particular operation ;)

To the recurring question in these forums as to where #XMPP has gone, my recurring answer is “everywhere”.

The following link illustrates this. In this case, in the context of infamous video application #Zoom.
