@moonman Looks like I'm gonna be setting up dev-specific browser profiles then.
@vrsmd argh okay. thanks.
The new #kdenlive 19.08 is looking phenomenal!
I never wanted to stop using it in the first place, back when it was still unstable prior to the massive code refactor, and from what I can see so far it looks like I might be able to come back to my favourite #NLE!
The new features and workflows are outstanding. My next video will undoubtedly be edited on here.
Thank you for the amazing work Kdenlive devs. Absolutely fantastic.
it's pretty #cyberpunk how normal people talk about "The Algorithm" in conversation
@thomasfuchs legit bought my dad one back in the day to go with his 21" CRT set to 1024x768
@art the struggle to survive and maybe make a little money I can put toward projects
<< The average person tends to have either less than eight tabs open, or to add tabs without organization until declaring “tab bankruptcy” and starting fresh. >>
yeah, I'm the... second one
(checks browser; it reports 'new mathematical research needed in order to determine if your number of open tabs is even theoretically countably infinite')
@graydon that said, my constant concern is that people bolt that weak left critique of free speech onto valid concerns regarding weaponisation, and -- together with the fact that the far right uses free speech as an empty rallying cry -- abandon free expression as a value to centralised control once again. even though it was the early assymetric advantage of cheap speech to silenced and disenfranchised groups that drove IMHO much of the new renaissance of the left in the last decade
@graydon no, I hear you: I disagree with the assessment that the far right have some sort of structural advantage in an era of cheap speech. I don’t think it’s surprising that they would take advantage of it (the primary surprise for me was that it took so long), but I don’t think I could convince you of that in a few short toots. I can only encourage you to investigate how your peers reached the political conclusions they did, and also observe what tools succeed best.
@graydon with my EFF hat more firmly on, one of the levers people reach for in times of fear is to target free expression as a potential choke point to stem a deeper problem.
Previous experience indicates this doesn’t work — and, for most progressive goals, is radically counter-productive. (I’d argue it’s not even that great if you have reactionary goals, but hey, I argue with censoring conservatives every other day).
