    I seriously never knew RMS was like this. I thought he was a champion of freedom and free software and what I've learned recently just... baffles me, and not in a good way :(

    Really sped up version, though. No doubt posted to avoid Youtube's TOTALLY FAIR AND NOT DESTROYING THE WEBSITE AT ALL copyright filter

    Important to point out that the Senator in question is Ron Wyden. He has credibility.

    I understand that but there are a lot of diverse articles that get posted there so it's not an excuse

    I don't understand Hacker News. They're so abrasive for no reason.

    Facebook is so utterly bizarre. They essentially seem to be built on an empire of lies and obfuscation. Maybe they really are honest, who knows. But there's a lot of talk coming out of both sides...

    Reddit can be okay. The real point of departure I have is Hacker News. THAT place is weapons grade toxic with too many argumentative people at every turn

    So I'm just browsing the internet when I should be asleep, and naturally I'm on Reddit. I've read a couple of topics about Aaron Swartz. Comments that get heavily upvoted are things like "the prosecution didn't kill him. he did." ... why does nobody realize this is an incredibly callous thing to say? What the fuck is wrong with people? Why is this acceptable? You'd think more people would take his side or at least be sympathetic.

    When Youtube was at its best, when it wasn't showing blatant disrespect to their users, the recommended videos for "Generic video part 1" tended to be "Generic video part 2" or "Another interesting video like that by the uploader" or "Videos related to the same subject as generic video". Now? You can watch a music video and get American Idol videos shoved in your face, you can watch basically any video and see "Jordan Peterson DESTROYS such and such". Now, it's "just an algorithm". But people have complained about Youtube for years and years and they haven't listened. They absolutely optimize for engagement and it pisses me off.

    To blame Ramsay as a symbol is a bit silly. And you do need to set standards in a professional kitchen in order to get things right, if you don't rule with an iron fist sometimes, people produce substandard work. That said, I know even other chefs don't like Ramsay much. Marco Pierre White has said that he'll never speak to him again for example

    For a company that claims to have privacy as a priority... well. Can Zuck get tested for being a sociopath already?
