Idea: Infinite-scroll Wikipedia with fades between the articles.

You'd never know where one article ends and the next begins as it goes from topic to topic and it doesn't end until you've consumed all of human-knowledge.

Rich that a multi billion dollar company claims it needs to violate users privacy to "help small businesses". Offensively transparent.

Looking around on the Ink/Stitch website today and found this set of video tutorials that look amazing:

It is clear that a state can't secede on its own, it would have to be removed at the Federal level. This then explains Paxton's strategy of being so embarrassing that the other states kick Texas out of the Union.

I'd love it if then someone linked to all the individual project servers and made a OSS Design collection of great stuff. It seems like Peertube allows for that and would be a great intro point for people wanting to learn how to move off of proprietary graphics.

For that, I'm taking inspiration from Blender's efforts and setup of:

Does that seem like a reasonable setup if we had a similar location for Inkscape-stuff?

At the last Inkscape board meeting we discussed having a place to put videos that the project makes along with other tutorials and Inkscape-related content. I took that action item of researching some options and making a proposal for next month's meeting.

One woman's story about getting into and out of QAnon. What I find most interesting is her concerns starting out: "feeling that the Democratic Party had betrayed her ... in working-class Detroit who had seen their middle-class lifestyle decline." Not the dyed in the wool conservatives they're often made out to be.

Feeling a little guilty over how much I'm enjoying Wall Street panicking because of their over extension on Gamestop shorts (and others).

Distributed (in this case money) always wins over centralized.

Kids do a better job at basic pandemic safety with help from their teachers. But adults are the problem. Adults! Get your act together!

In reading about FIDO U2F it seems like the entire concept is about authenticating to web applications.

But, what about non-web applications? How can I use a FIDO U2F key for IMAP?

Is the concept that you have a web-based password manager with TOTP for everything else?

Different view on RAW development for the Open Source digital photographer. Simpler and faster probably covers more of my use cases for RAW files.

Daily vs. Weekly. Is that an "order for magnitude" different? Weekly vs. Monthly vs. Yearly? Order of magnitude base-Julian?

The other clever thing is that, while I used it and completed my transaction in the normal flow, they noticed it was my first time using it and sent me an email explaining what just happened. I understand a lot of the handoffs there, but I imagine for many folks it was surprising and perhaps made them concerned.

Good follow up like that builds trust.

Made a purchase that went through Amex "Safekey", which is kinda interesting:

Basically it allows for two-factor to be inserted in the credit card transaction. SMS. But still feels like something that would make online purchases more secure.
