In advance of next week's @w3c #TPAC2018 meetings in Lyon, it's worth thinking about how we, as the technical community, can mitigate against the further balkanization of the web.
We finally released #PeerTube v1!
Please upgrade ASAP: it fixes a vulnerability regarding HTTP signature.
Until the end of the year, we'll work on v1 support/bugfixes and add some moderation tools https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/issues/1253#issuecomment-429517470
Have a nice week 😋
I work as CEO and Android Dev of my startup about the app Settle Up.
I'm Google Developer Expert and enjoy travelling and speaking at conferences about Android, Firebase and Kotlin.
I'm interested in Elon's companies (SpaceX, Tesla, Boring Company) and my biggest hobby is participating in LARP games.
I really enjoyed Google+ and looking if this platform can replace it.
So uh, Mastodon has been around for 2 years now. Wow
Simple hardware reset (powering up with refresh button pressed) solved it, phew.
Apparently I'm not the only one who encountered this issue: https://www.reddit.com/r/PixelBook/comments/8sdq60/so_my_usbc_port_died_for_a_little_bit/

Of course, as Netflix is turning into yet another TV channel, the subscription fee is getting more expensive the smaller portion of desired content it's catalog covers.
People don't subscribe to your newspaper for the same reason... They don't care about YOUR news when all other news are just a click away.
... I want something like Netflix for games. To pay a small monthly fee (or pay per play) where you can simply select a game and start playing. No purchases, downloads, maintenance etc. And don't underestimate the fact that all you'll need is browser. This can bring gaming to much (several times) wider audience.
After the initial batch of game #streaming startups were bought and locked into a single platform (Nvidia tablet, Playstations, Samsung TVs etc.) or closed right away to kill competition (OnLive closed by Sony) there's now a new bunch. Though they solve only the technology part. Apart from superior infrastructure, #Google has potential to solve the rest of the game streaming UX. I don't want remote access to a Windows gaming machine and buy and manually install games from Steam...
