I'm looking for a GAFAM free alternative for guaranteeing email deliverability on transactional emails. Does anyone have any suggestions? In the past I have had to resort to setting up an email account on a major provider to use as a proxy. Is there any alternative? If there is a way of doing so without setting up a full email server that would be preferable, or maybe a privacy respecting saas platform... If that's not a contradiction in terms 😅

Would it be possible to write our own browser from the ground up? I've been that thinking, the browser market is tiny because the spec is so huge now. What if people chose the HTML spec subset they found interesting and implemented that? Could you break up the work enough to make a completely modular browser?

I haven't really been following the amber vs johnny trial, but this gave me pause:

One thing I love about mastodon is that I never feel coerced to come back. I don't feel like I need to log on constantly, but if I choose to check in I'll find something I like, more often than not.

ok gonna go scorched-earth mode here: those shitty line drawing image macros that come from 4chan are an irredeemable format. avail yourself of them. the fascist nihilism is built into them. there's a reason they're made to look shitty, low-effort and cheap. there's a reason why they associate [bad thing] with weakness and physical deformity, and [good thing] with physical strength and sexiness. trying to put an anarchist/commie spin on it is fruitless - the rot runs all the way through it.

And it’s not just Putin.

Exploiting greed is the cornerstone of every modern autocrat and wannabe autocrat’s playbook.

When we say capitalism is the slippery slope to fascism this is what we mean.

This is where you end up if your compass has profit as its true north.
