Bad movie night starting with a stream in 30 minutes at mcpubs.com:8081/
Movie still to be decided, but I'm leaning towards The Wild Wild World of Batwoman 😀

I'm particularly interested in the at scale talk (fosdem.org/2021/schedule/event) as well as the massive communities in Matrix talk (fosdem.org/2021/schedule/event)

@nolan
We need to make a "time machine" course on the history of web, starting with Mosaic and Netscape, gopher and IRC. Maybe including explanations on how the Archie and Veronica services worked.

What went wrong with the web, what went right, how people interacted then, the AOL CDs, the eternal September, the dotcom bubble, how the advertising businesses crept into the web until it became the web as we know it.

Kids don't know this. They hate the older generation simply because it's older instead of looking at our struggles - and yet they're more than happy to subscribe to Facebook pages, "buy" Spotify music and join discord channels.

They are falling into the capitalist trap.

Seeing someone read a book you love is seeing a book recommend a person.

Mobile phones are the primary "computers" for many users, which makes it more important than ever to support Replicant, the free mobile phone OS: u.fsf.org/38l
