I work in community building and tech, so people sometimes ask me about Nextdoor. I tell them: venture capitalists have poured 455 US$ into Nextdoor and their tagline [Discover your neighbourhood] translates into "we are coming for you and will corrupt your society and you will eventually wail, 'WTF?!'"
Speaking of abandoning platforms, I did a bunch of work for a client that is a large GSuite shop. The software used Google's charting SDK. Sorta neat. Got well into it, and then hit a problem; some digging told me G had abandoned work on the SDK. They will not acknowledge this fact on the forums. 😠
🚖 @Uber has failed to respond to our letter on #CloudExtraction - which allows warrantless, broad access to cloud stored data. This is a vital issue for security of Uber's customer data. Help us demand they respond now and retweet. 🔁
I seem to remember hearing of an online service whereby people could watch a vid stream on their separate devices, but the stream is sync'ed, so that everyone saw the same thing at the same time. (In this case, the movie "Cats"! (Self-harm trigger warning!))
Did I dream the sync'ed multi-party vid stream viewing thing??
My home ISP emailed me to promote some current movies that can be screened (movie studios are dumb). I saw "Cats" listed and nearly spewed my coffee.
I haven't seen Cats but I wonder if it would be derisibly funny to watch (with enough beer & wine). Oh, right; would want to do that sort of thing With Friends. Never mind...
