@njoseph hi Joseph, I am a free software enthusiast, and I am interested to your wiki especially at this page https://njoseph.me/mediawiki/FreedomBox. However, there is a problem, the video you said to be legendary is gone (https://peertube.mastodon.host/videos/watch/2d7f1421-2e64-4756-9d90-c75860e3c378). I want to watch it, Joseph. Could you please help me to find it? Thank you very much.
@ademalsasa Unfortunately, the PeerTube instance on which the FreedomBox video channel was hosted is down. There were 25-30 videos on that channel. Maybe the channel will be resurrected on another instance in the future.
For now, I've replaced the PeerTube link with a link to the original source of the video. You can find audio, video and transcripts there.
@wyatwerp You're right. It looks like I placed Erlang into the Big Tech category when I was only trying to give an example of development platforms.
I tried to not mix examples into the "big tech vs. small tech" section, but some slipped through.
@njoseph Very useful/thoughtful resource! I like to refer to GAFAM collectively as the "Frightful Five" and I provide this link to demonstrate their insidious nature: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/10/technology/techs-frightful-five-theyve-got-us.html - to describe why their evil-doing is inevitable, I wrote this: https://davelane.nz/megacorps
@njoseph @lightweight John Ohno (who used to hang out here) has written a lot of insightful posts about small computing: https://www.amazon.com/Big-Small-Computing-Trajectories-Software-ebook/dp/B07GJG4YMW/ https://enkiv2.medium.com
