I'm realizing that I've lately been failing at not "correcting" people who are "wrong on the Internet."
In particular on the subject of Google.
I tend to dislike polarization wherever I see it. With a few exceptions, I think it does more harm than good.
It bugged me when fanboys assumed Google could do no wrong, and now I'm just as annoyed people assume everything they do is malicious and evil.
But people have their opinions, their reasons. Good or bad.
I should probably just STFU. 🔇
Not really a 'growing up' kind of family.

After discussing with @dansup this morning, I've opened a bunch of issues regarding user activity federation in Funkwhale: https://code.eliotberriot.com/funkwhale/funkwhale/milestones/8

I guess I have my summer scheduled ;)
