Rant, alpha wolves 

They are not a thing
Alpha wolves aren't a thing
Never were

It's ok the scientist made a mistake
It would be nice for the public opinion to catch up. Especially seeing how much some people are building bullshit on top of this

What term best describes when software corps pull features from their free version and force you to pay for them? Especially the case where they take community contributions and put them behind a paywall? "Treehousing" evokes the idea of building a treehouse together but when youre down below, they pull up the ladder on you. "Gangplanking" is perhaps more self-describing ;) other ideas welcome! inspired by @dumpsterqueer and @handle

Our new issue of Possible Futures is out.

In this issue we cover the heated topic of 💸 FUNDING 💸 .

possiblefutures.tech/issue/fun

How can we ethically fund projects so tech projects don't end up scaling at all costs, ditching all morals along the way?

How do we fairly compensate people in open source?

This issue also includes our *first* piece of original content.

I interviewed the CEO of @penpot on how they fund their open source projects among other things.

I only started using bit torrent because all my friends were doing it - I couldn't resist the peer to peer pressure.

New idea - a website that collects links to all ongoing fundraising campaigns of striking workers.

It would be a #platformcoop owned by those who make a recurring monthly donation, that would be distributed equally between all active fundraising campaigns that month.

Thoughts?

Here is an image to illustrate what it could look like.

LinkedIn can go fuck itself.

Evidently IT didn't exist before the 90s. Or they could be agist fucks.

Nah, that couldn't be it.

We’re not confused about what Apple is doing. They’re implementing client-side scanning… as requested by Barr/The FBI all the way back to end of 2019.

And, as the Federighi interview shows, they’re barefaced lying about it. They know exactly what they’re doing and why.

I’ve lost all trust in this company.

(The only trust I had anyway was because of their business model.)

Apple is just as bad as Google, if not worse, at this point.
