Is there something like HackerNews but not infested by Silly Valley's libertarian STEMlords and VC-bootlicking hustlers?

OP here. Since then, I haven't found anything significant besides this board, but there's a new small sub https://www.reddit.com/r/techtakes/ where people dunk on HN reactionaries and PG's dumb takes.

It is an offshoot from https://www.reddit.com/r/SneerClub/ where folks dunk on the "rationalist" community stars (mostly Eliezer Yudkowsky and Scott "Alexander" Siskind).

Computers are machines that can perform a range of different tasks based of user input. Normally to achieve their main function they are composed of switches whom when turned on will perform a function and not when turned off that are connected through a series of wires connecting to each switch that transport electricity based off what the person wants the machine to turn on and off. We represent on and off states of computers using 1s and 0s.
An algorithm is a series of instructions given to a computer that gets it to turn different sectors of itself on and off in a specific sequence.
A cpu is an abbreviation for Central Processing unit, it runs all the commands that allow which sectors of the computer to turn on and off
Software is an app composed of many different algorithms a computer uses to perform a specific set of tasks
Hardware is the components and machinery of the computer itself
Computer science or CS is the study of well computers
Supercomputers are large warehouses of cpus that are often used in performing major projects
Quantum computers are computers that can be in an on and off state and allow any cpu to be much more efficient than in the traditional sense where a computer can only ever be on and off
Ai and machine learning are software based tools used to get computers to perform labour on their own
Robotics integrates complex hardware and software to get different types of machinery to be able to perform complex tasks driven by algorithms and ai

Hope to all the undergraduates in this degree can use this awful post for something

the utility of QC is very much up for debate and subject to experimental results. we don't yet know whether QC is physically possible or thermodynamically beneficial

wrong. Computer science is the study of computing. Computer science is the subfield of applied mathematics that studies imperative knowledge.

Why the fuck is no one here talking about FreeNode fucking imploding on itself? They are banning whole channels on the network for even mentioning the name "Libera." The glowies got control of freenode, fyi, so, if you are on that network I would suggest leaving.

I think they don't re-encode videos, that saves them a lot of costs compared to other video-sites. but it's on you to upload a video with the right video-codec. And you can't change the resolution unless the video-creator used a video-container with multiple resolutions.

It's based on a trade-off.

Odysee is in a lot of trouble with the Securities and Exchange Commission right now for providing speculative commodities for user buy-in. This sort of government scrutiny is what's in store for all services attempting to shoehorn crypto into their social media alternatives.

Not related, but I love how Bitcoin and Bitcoin-clones are called crypto. The word "crypto" has connotations that you can't see everything, ie. that it's a scam.

Is it possible to get access to some form of VPN if you can't afford a monthly subscription? I tried openvpn with some open servers but I'm a techlet and I don't think I've set it up properly, it barely seems to hide anything.

Not a rebuttal.
Tor, like literally every usable computer and software, gas weaknesses. Furthermore, Tor users almost always get caught by deanonymizing themselves or downloading and running things they shouldn't. Either that, or being worth spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on.
Do you have any specific example you want to discuss, or are you just parroting FUD shit you don't understand?

nothing wrong with stealing data, if you give them useless data or dont care

(not really a reply to you but about what you said) btw for good practice with tor, of course no javascript, dont go to any websites you use on the clearnet on tor, for the same reasons stay away from anything with cloudflare or recaptcha, and dont open anything from tor on the client you run tor on
lesser known good practice is also use a bridge so your tor traffic is less easy to automatically effect, and explicitly set a few guard nodes that you trust, you can set up your own if you really want to
and qubes is really great for this, you virtualize your tor environment every time, so it doesnt match the environment you use for other browsing, and you can open shit in a sandboxed way
