Shoutout to Patreon for talking to TechCrunch before talking to creators
And a reminder that I have a standing offer to host fosspay for anyone who would like it:
It's the software that runs my donation portal:
#Patreon ups its revenue cut, but grandfathers in old creators
I feel bad for DnD wizards like imagine spending years, possibly the majority of your life studying magic just to do some low-mid level magic and then along come warlocks with their sugar daddies, sorcerers with their overentitled inheritance, druids with their treehugging, bards with their fucking vuvuzelas, and clerics and paladins with their divine senpais

@r000t Guess what happened to Telegram in Russia when the government tried to ban it? :)
Before the Internet, books banned by one city drove sales in others. Being "forbidden" can do more for your brand than the best marketing firm, and you don't pay a dime.
If traffic goes UP 3 standard deviations in the place you've supposedly deployed technical blocks in, imagine how far it went up everywhere else.
Folks, my grandmother, who hasn't used the Internet in her life, asked me if I could show her "the video". Because she heard on the news that "they deleted all the copies".
Also fun: /pol/ has discovered a list of printers in New Zealand and some Arab countries that expose telnet on port 9100. You know, the same port used by @hackergiraffe
Those of you who had "political memefare" in the what-will-unsecured-printers-do-next pool, come collect your winnings!
@Technowix It's kind of what the integration does, actually. Instead of posting a public toot with the signature string, the signature string is posted to a special page and saved separately. It is also confirmed to be real on our side.
For example, if I just post some gibberish and claim that it's my Keybase proof, Keybase might know it doesn't actually work, but people on here wouldn't know unless they checked. With this method, it is checked automatically.
"Add Keybase integration"
Oof, another centralized service
json-ld isn't enought
