by the way i would never (never) get rid of my digital music collection and switch to a streaming service... okay yes I'm old, but there are decades of memories wrapped up in the history of why I have the particular songs & albums I do.

it's so weird to experience existence as a singular consciousness but to in fact represent a layercake of behavioural machines

the FBI pressconf guys were so unbelievably bostonian. watching every muscle in this guy's face twitch just so to communicate that sublime mixture of confidence, arrogance, annoyance, and restraint.

I'm so excited about my tech projects. just need to get $50 or so in my cloud account now, essentially so I can rent a couple moar static IPs.

and, well, I need recover further from the winter holidays so I can think about complex tech stuff without glazing over. the disruption is really hard on me every year.

"If one were looking for evidence to demonstrate that these tech behemoths are, in fact, monopolies that engage in anti-competitive behavior in violation of antitrust laws, and will obliterate any attempt to compete with them in the marketplace, it would be difficult to imagine anything more compelling than how they just used their unconstrained power to utterly destroy a rising competitor."

this sword very much cuts both ways and all the MSNBCoid liberals cheering it... well I suppose because they have essentially nothing interesting to say, they don't have much to fear until such time as the winds change and suddenly pandering to the MSNBCoid demographic is no longer so good for tech companies' quarterly earnings.

[Parler did] exactly what Silicon Valley defenders long insisted should be done: if you don’t like the rules imposed by tech giants, go create your own platform with different rules.

But today, if you want to use Parler, you will be unable to do so… because three Silicon Valley monopolies — Amazon, Google and Apple — abruptly united to remove Parler from the internet, exactly [when] it became the most-downloaded app in the country.

Trump’s Republican wall eroding ahead of impeachment vote

Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 Republican in the House, gave rank-and-file conservatives the green light to abandon Trump in a scathing statement Tuesday evening…

More ominously for Trump, The New York Times reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell thinks Trump committed an impeachable offense and is glad Democrats are moving against him.

DOJ investigating sedition & conspiracy charges, terror links to storming of Capitol

The investigation … includes counterterrorism & counterintelligence facets and has led to charges against more than 70 people… [arrests] are expected to increase into the hundreds, if not “exponentially.”

“No resources of the FBI or the U.S. attorney’s office will be untapped to determine if there was command & control, how it operated and how it executed these activities.”

@NeikoCat there are good, high-quality conspiracies yet people fall for crap like qanon

I think part of the reason that these alt-platforms fail is they're always constructed on a for-profit model that requires cooperation from the society that they're trying to bypass. maybe a limitation of conservative creativity.
