Hello world! The logical end-point of distribution and federation is a personal instance. This is my Mastodon instance.

AI based predictors the text said. I read 'AI based predators'. That type of misreading keeps happening to me. There must be a bias somewhere in my own training dataset...

By way of experiment I have added on my blog, where they exist, annotations of my postings to the posting itself. Such annotations are made in My single post site template pulls them in through the Hypothesis API.

Is it possible to annotate links in that are in the Internet Archive? Maybe @chrisaldrich knows? As he's been annotating the same pages I'm looking at now.

#Facebook and #Instagram not only track everything you do in their in-app browsers (to be expected), but they inject their own code into websites you visit and even collect your passwords.

Please stop using these godforsaken apps. Fuck.

Die EU Data Governance Act is per direct geldig straks, zonder NL wet, dus wellicht is het de discussie v aanpassingen in bestaande wetten daarvoor? Je moet dan vragen kunnen stellen aan data, de overheid hoeft niet te antwoorden, en een antwoord hoeft niet te gaan om de data zelf.

Are you aware of any open web work / uses / examples on/of the social graph? If so let me know!

Dave Winer adds markdown support to RSS. I wonder if this opens up new ways for me to connect my (markdown) notes locally to my website, or provide feeds from my notes to (selected) others. Need to explore and play with this a bit.

Horrifying account of what looks like scientific misconduct (possibly fraud). The whole theory of how Alzheimer's works and the lines of research to cure it may be grounded on false evidence for the last 15 years or so.

After this week I am on summer hiatus for a few weeks. I may post here or not, I'll see. It was a regular week, but with a focus on finishing some stuff, and otherwise avoiding new stuff until I will be back. Y was at home a few days, so that limited bot E's and my working time somewhat.

This week I
