kthxbye #2

One year ago I wrote a short summary that I'm planning to stop posting to social networks, or at least minimize it as much as possible. Nearly a year passed so it's time for a summary.

Thoughts on censorship

The western world is slowly slipping into a special hell of self-imposed censorship, where people will not mention topics, not post issues, because it's not appropriate, because it's not part of the greater good, or because the network, that 'everyone uses' disallows it.

The Retro Internet

During the past decade in Hungary I've seen the 60s, the 70s and a bit of the 80s, merged and mixed in our everyday life. The whole world had a retro-fever, re-thinking, re-using and re-visiting the childhood of our parents, our grandparents. As this fades out I'm seeing a new retro rising: the retro internet.

How I misunderstood an aspect of Indieweb

If the indieweb sites were not syndicating to Twitter, would it be possible to collect the posts based on hashtags with - for example - Google?

echoes in the dark

Hiába írsz bármit, eltűnik a süllyesztőben, egy a végtelen, feneketlen katlanban, mert a fő érv az új, a friss, a legfontosabb, olyan szempontok és metrika alapján, amit algoritmusok részinformációk alapján ollóznak össze.

A nyolcvanas évek ereje

Miért van az, hogy a 80-as évek termékei (könyv, film, mese, stb.) szinte mind, egytől egyik értelmes lényként próbálják meg kezelni a gyerekeket, ellentétben a mai, gyakorlatilag butító módszerrel? Kinek jó ez?
