When a web page wants to have your location, the browser asks and you just say “heck no!” and the problem is solved.

We need something similar for #WebAssembly. “This website wants to basically install and run what’s basically an unknown binary on your computer. Is this awesome? y/n”

The economy explained with cryptocurrencies :

"a process that demands ever more energy, ever more resources lost to continue to operate and return, for no other reason than to insure that tomorrow it will be even more expensive- which makes the wastefulness of today a good investment."


Last year, the US used civil forfeiture procedures to seize some 1.2 million barrels of gasoline being sent from Iran to Venezuela aboard four tankers, likely worth tens of millions of dollars.

> C'est en 1991, sous un gouvernement socialiste, que la France s'engage dans une stratégie de création d'emplois domestiques. La désindustrialisation et les gains de productivité ont fait perdre beaucoup d'emplois « du milieu de la distribution des revenus » et il s'agit alors d'exploiter un « gisement » d'emplois dans les services. L'outil qui est alors mis en œuvre, c'est la défiscalisation des dépenses des ménages à hauteur de 50 %.

"“compiler” is the all-encompassing term for a program that takes code in one language and produces code in another"

"pedentically an assembler is a compiler as well (but we don’t want to be pedantic, right? RIGHT?)"

"Stop Nitpicking in Code Reviews" by Dan Lew blog.danlew.net/2021/02/23/sto

Totally agree with this. I've tried to stop nitpicking when it's just something like "you could do this in 1 line of code instead of 3." If it doesn't really matter, why fill up the PR with noise?

As we watch events in Texas unfold, bear in mind that Texas "seceded" from the US national electrical grid in order to avoid federal regulation. They privatized their grid into the hands of a few wealthy people. As a result there are only two limited interconnects making it impossible for surrounding states to share power to keep Texas afloat in terms of electric power.

All this suffering in Texas should not be happening. The grid in Texas is intact, they just don't have generation capacity. If Texas had remained part of the US grid, power from as far away as California, Washington, West Virginia, Tennessee, Florida, could be routed to Texas. Looking at the real-time data here, the US grid is running at more than 200 GW below capacity. There's enough power to hold up two states of Texas even if Texas had no generation at all. But we can't send them power.

Keep this in mind when rich people trick the public and politicians about privatization, and spout garbage like "going it alone, in keeping with the pioneering spirit of the USA". No. Organized cooperation is power. Going it alone is weakness.

Don't believe in cooperation? Study how the Roman army was organized. It was all about very tightly organized cooperation, starting with an individual soldier and those to his immediate left and right. This is how 8,000 Romans could take on 80,000 and methodically slaughter the 80,000 with zero losses.

Oh holy crap I found the culprit!

#Firefox came with this Widevine DRM extension by #Google. That was overriding uBlock Origin. As soon as I disabled the YT ads were gone. TIL.
