I need more memory. I'm running out of memory every day since I got back in the Android ROM development community.

Replace the 50 stars in the US flag with...

I support reasonable regulations on ads. And yes, blocking the advertising of some of the worst things is good. But it's sorta like my quip elsewhere in this thread about social-investing.

Yes, we should ban marketing of prescription medication directly to consumers. But that's just a start.

I do find far more sympathy with arguments that maybe bans and regulations won't work or will have unintended consequences. I don't sympathize as much with "ads are fine"

I didn't say whether outlawing ads would work (it's not politically possible). I just said ads are bad.

Also, jobs aren't an end in themselves. If jobs that produce zero or negative value disappear, that's good and there's no need to replace them. There's more to do in the world than people to do it. Not all of that is a "job" per se. See #bsjobs (Bullshit Jobs by David Graeber)

Anyway, Sao Paulo outlawed *outdoor* ads, and it was great in every way.

In a world without all the harms advertising supports, all the people who struggle to keep LWN going could be better off and not need as much direct income.

If Apple/Microsoft/Google ads disappeared, it would be easier to get GNU messages to people's attention. If LWN had 100× audience size, they could have at least 5× subscribers.

Snowdrift.coop and crowdmatching aims to increase the portion of readers who donate too.

We are considering a Kickstarter campaign to sustain full time development of Pixelfed for another year! #pixelfed

Today I feel so energized. I worked until 2:00am, got a ton of things done, but I'm not even feeling a bit tired as I walk home, enjoying the gentle breeze of June and listening to my favorite anime opening songs and...

Fuck! I haven't studied the damn Japanese grammer today! 😱
