I have no ads and no tracking on my website so please feel free to read from a feed reader - it doesn't hurt my income or anything.
I've written my first Rust library! 🦀
It's called fakedata_generator and I just released v0.2.0 yesterday!
It's a small lib that can generate random strings for you, e.g. random cat breeds or random dinosaur names or (very limited) domain and e-Mail names.
It's in its early stages but can be used as is!

Die rechtsextremen Brandstifter werden sagen, es handele sich um einen "geistig verwirrten Einzeltäter". Tut ihnen nicht den Gefallen, diese Erzählung zu übernehmen. Sie wollen nicht, dass wir darüber sprechen, welchen Einfluss rechtsextreme Hetze auf Radikalisierung hat. #Hanau
Some time ago someone on Mastodon said Bandcamp is how the internet should work: DRM free content for money, with artists receiving a fair share.
I agree with that, and I like Bandcamp a lot; I just found their fair-trade statement which also states
"Fans have paid artists and independent labels US$460 million using Bandcamp, and US$8.7 million in the past 30 days alone."
US$8.7 alone in the last 30 days. I didn't expect that!
I'm reading a book called "Utopia for Realists" and there's a chapter on basic income and how the common misconception is "nobody would work if there was basic income".
Honestly, if I would get a basic income and _could_ work extra I would, but I'd also like to change how I work. Maybe 3 days company and 2 days open source / fun stuff.
Working not for money but for the work itself is something so so so valuable. I never appreciated it when I was in a situation where I worked for the work alone
Today it was just npm, but a few months ago Cloudflare managed to disrupt access to most of their customers (which is a significant portion of sites and services on the Internet) due to a bug.
Bugs happen, that's not a problem. The problem is one bug at one company caused that level of disruption.
The old truism of "the Internet routes around damaged networks" doesn't hold anymore. That needs fixing.
Is it me or is the search on http://pgp.mit.edu/ down?
I think "The Hardest Button to Button" by The White Stripes has one of the best music videos ever produced.
It's just so... weird.
