schestowitz-TRbut shows you what sort of dumarses we work withJun 02 08:34
schestowitz-TRpeople with no actual compuiter skills, who compensate for it by talking shitJun 02 08:34

schestowitz-TRI said, "better shut up than say something so insensitive and dumb"Jun 02 08:34
schestowitz-TR(said it to rianne, not on call)Jun 02 08:34
Techrights-secwow what a foolish colleagueJun 02 08:35

schestowitz-TRthose plutocrats who cannot themselves do the jobJun 02 08:42
schestowitz-TRand call their staff "expensive" or "biggest expense"Jun 02 08:42
schestowitz-TRthen they buy the media to TELL US the sameJun 02 08:42
schestowitz-TRwqhy the f* would I wish to participoate in such a system?Jun 02 08:42
Techrights-secthere's often a lot of general experience needed for those low paying jobsJun 02 08:42
Techrights-secsome of them more than othersJun 02 08:42
Techrights-secin the experience is a lot of domain specific knowledgeJun 02 08:42

schestowitz-TRif other people start talking the same way, then you know it is succeedingJun 02 08:46
schestowitz-TRthen, they perpetuate the message and do the workJun 02 08:46
schestowitz-TRGNU did a lot of that since the 80sJun 02 08:46

schestowitz-TR"I used to be hung up on post counts, for some reason. On my ten year sludge through Twitter (2009-2019 (years lost forever)),Jun 02 12:06
schestowitz-TRI used to get worked up and enthusiastic about that I had 75K Tweets. It was a testament to how much time I wasted there, but iJun 02 12:06
schestowitz-TRt was 75K of SOMETHING I had "done". Ridiculous thing to care about." gemini:// 02 12:06
schestowitz-TRIt was a testament to how much time I wasted there" -----> I posted 951kJun 02 12:06

schestowitz-TRmental notes/coiredump: (when you are back, not afk)Jun 02 12:25
schestowitz-TRit might be worth putting together strategy notes on how to tackle diffetne types of issues and brands not the same thing...Jun 02 12:25
schestowitz-TRe.g. boycotts work well against brands and just saying "sofftware freedom" oversimplifies a multifaceted battleJun 02 12:25
schestowitz-TRmaybe I'll draft something for myself first...Jun 02 12:25
Techrights-secI would agree that there are probably some responses to common situations Jun 02 12:26
Techrights-secwhich could often be standardized, perhaps with variationsJun 02 12:26
schestowitz-TRso we need to outline, then factoriseJun 02 12:26
schestowitzvery roguh draftJun 02 12:34
schestowitzAmazon: cash cows include online retail business and clown computing (governments, businesses and people outsourcing to Amazon's Web Disservices)Jun 02 12:34
schestowitzApple: overpriced "luxury" (or perceived luxury) goods, which are precarious in a weak economy with supply/demand anomalies and sanction warsJun 02 12:34
schestowitzNetflix: rental to "content" (with DRM), akin to SpotifyJun 02 12:34
schestowitzClownflare: unprofitable, for the same reason Uber and gig economy [sic] in general is a bit of a gambleJun 02 12:34
schestowitzGoogle, Facebook and Twitter: a lot of surveillance capitalism with advertising and mental manipulation as the business model and force (YouTube does not seem to be profitable)Jun 02 12:34
schestowitzMicrosoft: Like Google, a failing business in hosting (massive losses), with the same in GitHub and maybe LinkeIn (a failing competitor of Facebook). Like Skype, it's hard to extract money, so surveilance increasingly becomes the business model, even with Windows whose market share decreases and competition (e.g. ChromeOS) drives the price downJun 02 12:34
schestowitzIBM (and Red Hat): Like HP and VMware, there's a languishing hardware and software business, with several failed attempts at hosting as a subscription-based business modelJun 02 12:34

Techrights-secone way to decommodify it.Jun 02 12:43
Techrights-secSimilar with Red Hat (IBM).  IBM has followed M$' outline from the HalloweenJun 02 12:43
Techrights-secDocuments and been able to use systemd to decommodify GNU/Linux in suchJun 02 12:43
Techrights-seca way that it becomes so complex that their services must be hired inJun 02 12:43
Techrights-secso decommodification appears to possibly be a recurring theme hereJun 02 12:43
schestowitz-TRyes, openshit, [sic]  ansible etc.Jun 02 12:44
schestowitz-TRthey use buzzwords like "transformation" and "legacy"Jun 02 12:44
schestowitz-TRto urge you to throw shit like containes and even k8s everywhereJun 02 12:44
schestowitz-TRthen struggle to find a sysadmin who can handle thatJun 02 12:44
Techrights-secansible seemed interesting at first glance, but the complexity does not Jun 02 12:44

schestowitz-TRgoing back on topic, as we did with novell before, it's important to look further at what comes nextJun 02 12:52
schestowitz-TRI think there's no overemcompassing explanation of the relationshiop betwen what the "brands" doJun 02 12:52
schestowitz-TRthe national identity matters because of cultural differences and demostic expertiseJun 02 12:52
schestowitz-TREurope is, imho, laughably behind on "share"Jun 02 12:55
schestowitz-TRbut I support that becauseJun 02 12:55
schestowitz-TR1) more giants does not mean more income, many are a yoke on the economyJun 02 12:55
schestowitz-TR2) potential for abuseJun 02 12:55
schestowitz-TRthe US wasted 1.1 trillion dollars a year on "defence" around 2015Jun 02 12:55

schestowitz-TRtesla/musk is graft, always wasJun 02 12:55
Techrights-secone essential factor to consider is that ICT is a pawn in major war effortsJun 02 12:56
schestowitz-TRtext might be hard to digest for what I'm after, I need to look into some diagrammin g softwareJun 02 12:59
schestowitz-TRdoing this the gimp was will look mickey mouse-ishJun 02 12:59
Techrights-secgimp can do a lot if one has patience.  But any program will give poor resultsJun 02 13:01
Techrights-secif one spends only 10 minutes on the graphics, or for that matter only 2 hoursJun 02 13:01
Techrights-secGood art is usually quite time consuming and not worth the return in this contextJun 02 13:01
Techrights-secone-off does not merit a lot of effort unless the appearance affects Jun 02 13:01
Techrights-secthe messageJun 02 13:01
schestowitz-TRmaybe I can find some shitty "online" toolJun 02 13:02
