Do they have a zine? Website?


no idea but i think theyre rightoids on fbi.gov


Probably. CIA wrote a warning about them, kek.

Is there an explicitly cooperative FOSS crowdfunding solution?
Or does it need to be created? Most seem to rely on direct donations to individuals (patreon, liberapay) or halfassed, symbolic methods/gestures (opencollective)

The real solution would be a technologically cooperative (each member in the group registers their acc to a ledger and gets auto-payed every time a donation is received to the co-op), free software licensed, with as little layers of mediation as possible.

Peertube is P2P, free software
Mastodon is flooded with anarchists, free software
Lemmy admins are MLs, free software
Fediverse is both integrating and branching relevant projects with each other
Amazon Labor Union (Amazon is owner of Twitch) has ballooned
Matrix has become normalized for development, so has alternatives to Github
Activists use Signal and not WhatApp anymore

With each instance of big tech bourgeois repression the cyberspatial zone of counterpower improves more in quality and quantity

Lay the economic brick on the socialist path, comrades

What is it solving?


I'll add another perspective from praxis. This thing would have members all over the world. Cooperatives need to be incorporated in a state somewhere. I've looked into starting cooperatives and some jurisdictions have tight requirements for who can be a member. Which jurisdiction is the easiest if you have members all over the world?


A country like Bolivia or Venezuela maybe?
I know that imperialist west social democratic governments passed some laws making it easier for their co-ops, but we wouldn't want to base there for reasons already mentioned (imperialist government, bound to bend over backwards in order to make it frustrate the transition I mentioned here >>20493 )
But that risk may be considerably reduced when the country in question already chooses to integrate into an alliance like ALBA-TCP, which includes a country like Cuba.


i'm, in this year, writing my university dissertation about donations systems for opensource developers, focused more on the points you said, like bulk donations rather than individual donations.
i believe this can work in FLOSS development or other highly specific areas, not everything, so i dont believe for sure in the so-called market socialism.
my reasons for believing that approach can work in floss is that software development does not need tons of constant capital, it basically needs computers and internet access what everyone already has, doing developement or not.
you just need to cover the sallaries of open source developers, and my sollution of bulk donations would help normies to donate, they dont need to know especific people to donate (tough having this option is good too).
crypto doesnot work simply because is not a good currency. it takes too much time to do transactions, and as that cant be used to buy food (the most important point of donating). although i like the open source and flexibility to do bulk transfers from crypto.


I really hope Lemmy posters ditch the training wheels and start posting on the microblog instances with hi charcounts and group posting. It's like forcing yourself to use a folder system instead of tags. Also, the upvotes thing is such a waste of time. Seeing moderators police it and bot vote counts is hilarious. Serious problem, some of the tenderqueer instances that are nominally "left unity" take this to an extreme, one anarchist reddit clone is literally just one guy and his sockpuppets, insanity. Never seen anything like that happen on Mastodon or Misskey forks.

Any Haskellers on Leftypol? Wanna trade monads?
2 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


Thanks, I will check it out and come back here with my progress.


Honestly LYAH is not bad but it's very limited. I learned the basics on my own and then the book was kinda moot. It's a fun language for sure, but I'm a Scala evangelist now.


I tried it a bit during uni on the side, I gave up after typeclasses, but I still use Haskell notation to reason about type or processes sometimes. Very interesting language, but I have no idea what to do with it.


It’s an algorithms prototyping language limited by performance, otherwise it’d be dominant (cuz 2x Rust isn’t good enough).

Web apps are reasonably mature, and being able to functionally manipulate DOM is quite nice. There’s also adequate GUI apps in Monomer, and fast games terminals up right now.

You don’t need to go past a single monad transformer layer for most uses, and effect systems have replaced deep stacked monad trans.

We also finally have GHCJS and WASM backends, although those are new and not really mature.

We need money to jazz up GHC, unfortunately.


Haskell is bretty cool, despite all the memeing it gets I think monads for structuring programs are an excellent innovation and seem like a great example of the "stop and think about how to really do this correctly" approach winning out versus the "just git 'er dun" style.

Typeclasses are nice in the small (Eq, Ord, etc) but there is an annoying tendency of Haskellers to abuse them to write ostensibly modular code where something like OCaml's modules would be more appropriate. The same Haskellers also want to pack more and more fancy types into Haskell even though fundamentally Haskell is not dependently typed and never will be. Why not leave dependent types to actual dependently-typed languages?

The community also cannot seem to decide if they want industrial buy-in or if they want to stay a "weird" language

And people wonder why opsec is important.


Way waaaay more egregious is this story. Facebook should have been shut down at this point and Zuckerberg should be in jail for cybercrimes at least, if not other crimes. It is absolutely baffling how bad this is.

In 2016, Facebook launched a secret project designed to intercept and decrypt the network traffic between people using Snapchat’s app and its servers. The goal was to understand users’ behavior and help Facebook compete with Snapchat, according to newly unsealed court documents. Facebook called this “Project Ghostbusters,” in a clear reference to Snapchat’s ghost-like logo.

On Tuesday, a federal court in California released new documents discovered as part of the class action lawsuit between consumers and Meta, Facebook’s parent company.

The newly released documents reveal how Meta tried to gain a competitive advantage over its competitors, including Snapchat and later Amazon and YouTube, by analyzing the network traffic of how its users were interacting with Meta’s competitors. Given these apps’ use of encryption, Facebook needed to develop special technology to get around it.

Does /tech/ participate in the Fediverse? Seems to me that this is the sort of social media we should be trying to get people into, even if social media itself is kinda trash.

I've always disliked social media, but after the news at >>>/leftypol/1066439, I've been considering getting into the Fediverse. You see, I would like the people who DO use social media (basically everyone) to be on better platforms, but I feel I cannot demand that from them if I cannot even use them myself. For instance, it would be disingenuous to ask Comrade Cockshott to start his presence in Mastodon after getting banned from fedbook if I could not be there to follow him and boost his follower stats. So..

So, /tech/, any thoughts on the Fediverse? What are some good instances and communities I could join? What are some people I should be following? What implementations are better, Pleroma, Mastodon, something else?

Also fediverse general.

>true alternative
unabstract your concepts
>firefox being an alternative to something


firefox is an alternative to not having adblock on mobile desu.


This faggot is too lazy to even look up LibreWolf, which turns all of the privacy setting autism into a one-click exercise


Mozilla can't make any money off of you and you don't do any work, of course like Nextcloud and Element and Mastodon the flagship instance/repository is going to be an actual product you poor motherfucker
Pocket is way bigger faggotry than anything they have added to Firefox which is practically a charity exercise. It seems like the advertising within default Firefox does more to build up animosity towards big tech among actual programmers. Speaking of which why are you talking about basic Firefox when Floorp and Librewolf fix all concerns of people with jobs and NEETs who look at hentai in Saudi Arabia, respectively


>Chvd instances being their own archepelegio means there's no chvds on the main archepelegio(s?)
In additon, it makes going over to them almost entertaining, because they start getting into their "it's just drawings lol it's fine calm down okay maybe some of it is traced from cp but who caaares it's just pixels lol i neeeeed it" people vs the fake trad christian weirdos, they turn on each other immediately

Just wondering if you use any android app (preferably open-source) to browse on leftypol and/or getchan.

I heard about `Clover` but it seems dead for a while and kuroba only has support to nazi hellholes — as far as I know at least; is there a way to add another chan there btw? I've been wanting to lurk while at the college since there are a lot of libs and a few right wingers (almost nazi fucks) and I'm too lazy to try to engage in conversation. Anyway do you know an app?

f-droid's is fennec, a fork of firefox that still phones home (and google).
also for the past years direct downloads from mozilla have a unique vendor id attached so consider getting the apk from their https repository


How's mull? I've been using it. No jxl support yet but the homescreen seems less cluttered.


Thanks comrade, I'm gonna give it a try when I'm free

Hmm, seems interesting, especially the Tor bit


Kuroba literally supports leftypol. Im posting with it rn.


I tried telling them how and they got so mad they became deluded into thinking I was posting gore. Nobody with a work ethic would run an imageboard. Same reason you don't see people making open source frontends for Facebook like Bibliogram. Nobody even wants that shit.

Some breakthroughs have led me to finally and definitively abandon microshit's spyware.
I had been staying on wangblows for the audio software but had no idea Linux production had come so far.

My DAW [Renoise] has a fucking excellent native linux version that exceeds WIndows performance in some cases. Grabbing audio to feed into its sampler is easier than ever with youtube-dl and ffmpeg.
yabridge lets you convert Windows VSTs to run through Wine, the ones I've tried have worked seamlessly albeit with a little overhead.
Takes a tiny bit of elbow grease to get it optimized enough for serious use, but it's pretty simple once you get past initial setup and it even supports VST3.

Feels pretty good to be making music on a system I have so much control over, it's actually given me a lot of inspiration to work on new material.
Are you a composer or producer who runs Linux? What's your workflow/software?

anyone produce on arch? and is pipewire worth replacing normal JACK with?


>Ctrl-F Tracker
>Only rutracker
Really no trackerchads in the linux musician thread? Crispy 8bit PCM is all you need. No LADSPA or Dirty Nonfree VSTs. So which will it be
>Schism Tracker

One of my friends from highschool turned into this, and it's sad to watch his decline into failson white rapper. He made decent techno and trance back in the day…


renoise was brought up

Someone archive this shit and jannies merge redundant threads I reported so I can post mine.
billions must hoard


nah, none of them work since they require a captcha and my script can't get past any of them. i need fixes bros


bump of shame


you have to hire iranians to do the captchas for your bot
