Grab the popcorn because the @NASAPersevere@twitter.com rover has sent us a one-of-kind video of her Mars landing. For the first time in history, we can see multiple angles of what it looks like to touch down on the Red Planet. #CountdownToMars

e-mail is a nearby-technology with planetary-scale connectivity, in a *socially* decentered way. Hold together by bubblegum and sticks. There is no project in sight that could "replace e-mail" (tm). We suggest to embrace and amend. Yes, it's a mess but it's also fun :)

Last month 32K installs happened through Google Play, another 70K installs from other counting stores plus many uncounted ones from F-Droid and direct apk downloads ... OMG, our servers are choking!1!! Just joking ... there are no Delta chat servers, and there is no spoon :)

#WhereIsMySurprisedFace CNN found the redacted version of the contract between UK and AstraZeneca. Turns out it was signed one day AFTER the cointract with the EU was signed and it also containes the "reasonable best effort" language. The EU was right with its interpretation and AstraZeneca now has a lot to explain IMHO amp.cnn.com/cnn/2021/02/17/eur

Bookfeed.io lets you make a list of authors you are interested in, and then provides you with a RSS feed that will alert you to new books published by those authors. It uses the Google Books API. It’s a clever small personal tool that Lukas Mathis built. I like it.

Journey is an interesting new Obsidian plugin, showing you the notes that form a path between two notes, so you can explore how your notes/thoughts are linked.
