Getting the NextCloud app back into working order. It now uses the zip download again.

I think I originally moved away from the zip file because it was buggy, but hopefully that's no longer an issue.

NextCloud is one of the “poster child” apps for self-hosting, and these days it works quite well.

Every monopolist's first preference is to be totally unregulated, but every monopolist's SECOND preference is to be regulated in a way that only a monopolist can comply with, thus foreclosing on the possibility of competition from an as-yet-nonexistent upstart.

Look at AT&T, or, as it was known in its monopolistic glory days, "The Bell System."

Facebook is bad, yo, but Apple isn't better 

Tragic. Just tragic. I am sobbing with glee--er, tragedy. :flan_XD::flan_balloon::flan_dance:

And yes, Apple is all about "nobody violates our users' privacy except us!" :flan_executioner:

I'm about halfway through @doctorow 's How To End Surveillance Capitalism, and when I'm not nodding furiously in agreement, I'm sitting back and trying to work out *what* I think. I want more people to read this so I can talk about it with them.

When talking about closed social medial such as Facebook or Twitter, we should understand that what is appealing for some people regarding these sites is the algorithm, their internet life is based on a real dependency on what the algorithm decides what to do, what to show them.

This is, of course, frightening. Relying too much on an algorithm means you'll eventfully lose your capacity to decide for yourself, their efficiency is unfortunately undermining our freedom of choice.

And they won't switch to federated social media, because it does not provide a real replacement of what they are used to. Sometimes relying on an algorithm is... addictive, and if you want to solve your addiction problems, you have to go trough a detoxification process.
