I wonder, war this strange new followers realy want. It dosn‘t feel good.

The tech sure is interesting. I just wish it was all open source, rather than being controlled, and tracked, through the largest violator of privacy on the internet right now.

The community should try find, nourish, promote and help people making interesting things with data. Artists with cool map styles, impressive visualisations, that sort of thing.

Ich wünschte, die Mastodonten würden verstehen, dass Fediverse so viel mehr als nur Mastodon ist.

Vortrag über das Fediverse von Tobias


Zum Ende der Sommerpause der Salonabende im Schätzchen, dem Café für Schöne Dinge & Salonkultur, war ich am 10. August eingeladen, einen Vortrag über das Fediverse und Friendica als Alternative zu den kommerziellen Plattformen wie Facebook, Instagram und nebenan.de zu halten.

Das Fediverse ist ein Netzwerk von unterschiedlichen Social Media Plattformen, die alle als Freie Software umgesetzt sind. Die Knoten des Netzwerks, also die einzelnen Installationen bzw. Dienste, kommunizieren dabei über offene Protokolle mit einander, ähnlich wie man es von E-Mails her kennt. Damit können die Nutzerïnnen der einzelnen Dienste im Fediverse, über die Grenzen der jeweiligen Dienste hinweg, mit allen anderen Nutzerïnnen interagieren

Ruffle - A Flash Player emulator written in Rust


The Flash player was launched in 1996 by a company called Macromedia and it took the internet by storm. At that time the rendering capabilities of HTML / JavaScript were incredibly weak. Flash brought smooth vector graphics to the web, resulting in an era of web cartoons and games. The reign of Flash came to a somewhat abrupt end in 2010, thanks in part to Steve Jobs.

This project seeks to keep the old Flash content on the web alive by creating a Flash player that runs on WebAssembly. So far the author has managed to emulate the vector graphics rendering, however, the more complex task of running ActionScript is still a work in progress. This is an ambitious and complex project, that has gained a lot of attention - much of it from the old “anti Flash” brigade!

I personally think that keeping old web content alive and useable is a very important goal - and thoroughly support this project. Long live Flash!

WebAssembly Interface Types: Interoperate with All the Things!


You know you’re in for a treat when Lin Clark publishes another blog post, and this one doesn’t disappoint. In this post Lin explains the challenges around interfacing WebAssembly with the host environment (of which there are many different types, not just browsers). This post looks at the various proposals that have tackled this issue, including reference types, garbage collection and WebIDL bindings. The WebAssembly team are currently focussing on a new Interface Types proposal that provides a very broad and generic solution, which will make it very easy to integrate WebAssembly across different hosts and languages.

Interactive Earth - Thermal Convection


We all love a flashy WebAssembly demo … this project implements thermal convection by “solving the advection equation with a semi-Lagrangian approach” - makes sense? Doesn’t matter, it’s a cool demo all the same. This project uses Emscripten and OpenGL.

World Map Generator


And another cool demo, this time a random world map generator. This project is written in Rust and compiles to WebAssembly.

And Finally …

Should the official package name for Java compiled to WebAssembly be org.wasm? (do you get it?)

Those who slept in the nude soon learned not to oversleep once workplaces introduced automatic teleporters as a commute-saving perk.

@kensanata Please add me to 3D Virtual & Augmented Reality, OpenStreetMap, Science Fiction.

If this gets 10 boosts, I'll post a scifi story I wrote in 2011 about Dustbowl Era gangsters and a thermionic tube-programmed robot

@Anoxinon It looks like Anoxinon does not work with Safari any more. I wouldn't mind on desktop; but on iPad it is my favorite, as no other App UI is alike.
Debugging does not show any errors but just a blank screen.

Schluss mit der Ende-zu-Ende-Verschlüsselung in WhatsApp. Schlimmer:

"If the company’s new on-device content moderation succeeds it will usher in the end of consumer end-to-end encryption and create a framework for governments to outsource their mass surveillance directly to social media companies, completely bypassing encryption."
