The simple fact that I need Reader Mode to read practically every single commercial web page tells you everything you need to know about the state of the web. #accessability

@dthompson @garbados anyone who uses "serverless" to mean something other than P2P immediately loses their credibility in my eyes

building software that is actually serverless is so much cooler than "using a specific AWS service"

We shouldn't really be talking about developing countries anymore. The majority of humanity lives in a middle income country, yet we still expect refugees to be poor and uneducated. I recently heard the fact that refugees have smartphones used as evidence that they aren't real refugees. We sort of expect people from conflict zones to live in a sort of perpetual state of poverty, and distrust them if they like Coca Cola and the Internet, or if they flee the country by buying an airline ticket.

Due to the twitter thing (they are bricking their service even more), we decided to open our registration for a few days. We might change that at any time if we see spam bots again but for now they are open again.

Please also notice, even if the registration is closed, everyone of you is capable of generating invites in the settings: chaos.social/invites

Here's a picture of me in my new Aira glasses. Aira is an on call service that gives blind people the ability to get visual tasks done. It's like having a co-pilot who gives you directions and visual information. My Aira agent helped me line up the picture and then snapped it for me using my phone's camera.

@theoutrider its worth noting that this keeps happening due to paypals stranglehold on payment processing and they pretty much force their anti-sex policy everywhere.

"Will blockchain work for my game?"

That depends. Does your design call for a database that requires network connectivity to other players and is extremely slow and CPU-intensive to access? If so, you're in luck!
