Born to die: the #history of amazing 145 #Google products that rest in piece:



 
Against the very principles and fundamental nature of the #internet and not just the #www - hence, this is an attack on everything but mass broadcast



 
The day is today! I've been looking around in the region before the event, watching the great videos from MSF and checking out the multi-lingual displays (5 language options) about their work. The sim is beautiful and we have quite a few avatars here well before opening time! Visit the T-Shirt shop to help out. :)

Great job to those who built the region and kudos to 3rd Rock Grid! Donations are accepted in Geodes, Paypal, or via CC directly to MSF at the various kiosks. For those who only have Gloebits, I am happy to take your donation so I can donate for you. All proceeds to MSF!

I don’t understand why this festival was called so. In a country surrounded by brick walls and borders of "language misunderstanding" with the rest of the world.
It would be better suited the name "InsideTheBorders."

The festival is a virtual world event where users from all over the world attend to raise money for the international non-profit.

To raise money - then it explains everything. From this it was necessary to begin. Then i would not have questions.




 
Sold my beloved Saab Convertible today. Surprisingly enough, it was a no-hassle process and the check is in the bank.

@Shelenn Ayres oh, that's definitely a big plus! Also curious, how close to blue book value did they give you for it?

mid range kbb trade value

@Shelenn Ayres - Thanks for the review! Thankfully, we have a CarMax close by, so our last few have been through them. I'm close to being in the market for a new car, so I might look to see what they offer. My largest plus with CarMax is the MaxCare- I've seen some people talk negatively about it, but it's only a few bucks more a month, and it has saved me close to $5000 so far on two different cars. It's one case where I'm actually of the opinion that the extended warranty has been worth it. But I do see that CarMax has had some pressure put on it by these services; our local CarMax is pretty much staffed with a skeleton staff now.

I've never dealt with buying from Carmax but selling to them was not a nice experience. LOL They will have to offer competitive service to Carvana to stay in business. Because of the sell experience with Carvana, when I am in the market to buy, they will be present in my mind.



 
Facebook (FB) stock has been downgraded following a series of back-to-back blows to the company, including an executive exodus in more recent months.

In a note published on Monday, Needham & Company downgraded the social network’s stock from a “Buy” to a “Hold” due to a number of factors, including the departures of 11 executives such as Chief Product Officer Chris Cox, CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s push towards a more private Facebook, the uploading and live streaming of “horrific images” such as the New Zealand mass shootings, and regulatory concerns.

“Together, we believe these risks are causing a ‘Negative Network Effect’, as evidenced by senior management departures,” analysts Laura Martin and Dan Medina wrote, referring to, in this case, the negative impact each additional Facebook user potentially brings to the social network to potentially sway other users.

Facebook’s core value as a platform stems from the 2.3 billion monthly users it’s accrued since Zuckerberg founded the so... show more

While I do test other centralized solutions it is only to see if they are willing to federate ;) Friendica is already better than FB and G+ but for users who like other sites like youme and openbook it would make sense to federate so we all stay connected.

Nun,… ich konnte beobachten, es ist wahrscheinlich nicht möglich, etwas Gemeinsames zu machen beziehungsweise auf einen Zusammenschluss zu hoffen, liebe @Shelenn Ayres ...
Wie wir sehen konnten, rennen viele, einfach unüberlegt nur einer ausgeklügelten Werbestrategie hinterher, die einen bequemen Ort verspricht.
Sind erst einmal einige dort gelandet, folgen viele, die sich keinerlei Gedanken machen wollen.
Denn ein ummauerter Garten, der mit vollkommener Sicherheit lockt [und das, wo wir doch alle wissen sollten, dass es eine derartige Sicherheit nicht gibt!], ist für viele unwiderstehlich!!
Die Argumente [ob die nun Richtig oder Falsch sind, ist mir nicht klar!], Tim Berners-Lee würde den Garten unterstützen, machen den Garten noch attraktiver, für einige unentschiedene/unentschlossene Leute.

Ein paar probieren vielleicht 500px, Twitter und andere Dinge/Orte…
Ich sprang nach Flickr, weil es für Foto und Kunst... show more

This is very true @Andi Droid but then there are others who like me have a presence in multiple places. The good thing with Friendica is the large places like Twitter and Blogger integrate easily even if not using federated protocols. Anything is possible ;)



 

Myspace loses all content uploaded before 2016


Faulty server migration blamed for mass deletion of songs, photos and video

Myspace, the once-mighty social network, has lost every single piece of content uploaded to its site before 2016, including millions of songs, photos and videos with no other home on the internet.

The company is blaming a faulty server migration for the mass deletion, which appears to have happened more than a year ago, when the first reports appeared of users unable to access older content. The company has confirmed to online archivists that the music has been lost permanently, dashing hopes that a back-up could be used to permanently protect the collection for future generations.



 

I switched to DuckDuckGo about 6 months ago for my desktop as well as my smartphone. I still have to use Google for a few searches and also their map but DuckDuckGo is my default search engine.

I see two identical responses from your same isurf.ca account. One has the (AP) identifier and the other does not. Have any of my posts shown up duplicate like that?

Not that I have noticed. Strange my comment is duplicated. I don't think I have seen that happen before.



 
@Doc Edward Morbius the efforts have been revealed at the tech news level :) Plexodus is cited in this article.
