Some were licking the boot because reddit promised ways to monetize subs during a Mod Summit ~2 years ago (business model would be taking a cut of all transactions happening on their platform). I quit modding shortly after and then reddit entirely so I'm not sure if they ever implemented this. Even if they didn't, mods will remember that promise.

I'm fairly sure this $100b funding NPR talks about is EU recovery fund which is quite massive due to extraordinary circumstances.

It went from far-right propaganda to milquetoast pro-government propaganda, which obviously is better state of things but definitely not crystal clear as pompously announced after government took control of state TV using legally dubious means.

One of the fact checking NGOs published quite nice analysis of current state of things today if anyone is curious (link to machine translated version):

That's fair, it's €100 per word.

Journalist for the Polish state broadcaster apologised for his channel's "shameful" role in spreading anti-LGBT sentiment (www.bbc.com)

Introducing the Guest of his Evening show, host Wojciech Szelag told two activists, Bart Staszewski and Maja Heban: "LGBT+ people are not an ideology, but people: specific names, faces, loved ones and friends....

That's quite likely since he would still be a business journalist employed at Interia / Polsat (private media). He was hired by TVP (public broadcaster) last month.

Because AI and Crypto use so much electricity, what if a law was made that they had to power it with green energy?

Something on the lines of if your company facility is using over X amount of energy the majority of that has to be from a green source such as solar power. What would happen and is this feasible or am I totally thinking about this wrong...

I don't think the Lemmy is well prepared to handle bots or more sophisticated spam, for now we're just too small to target. I usually browse by new and see spam staying up for hours even in the biggest communities.

Whatever is done to fight spam should be useful in fighting CSAM too. Latest "AI" boom could prove lucky for non-commercial social networks as content recognition is something that can leverage machine learning. Obviously it's a significant cost so pitching in will have to be more common in covering running costs.

I was an Android guy back in the day but handheld gaming is my love and I owned Gen1 iPod Touch specifically for games. Canabalt was mind blowingly fun, one of the firsts that perfected touch screen formula.

The article prompted me to re-download it on my phone and my mind was blown again. Canabalt devs are behind Night in the Woods, Wilmot's Warehouse and Tunic 🤯

I have this conspiracy theory where Disney and Tencent concocted 20 year plan to merge through a common stake in Epic. Just don't ask about any details because there are none.

    Worth reading in spite of probably the most atrocious website layout I've seen in recent memory.

    TikTok is no more a social media platform than YouTube is. I'm puzzled why some people call it that and my only guess is that they've never used it.

    I agree, it all went downhill when we stopped having liturgy exclusively in Ecclesiastical Latin. Plebs can now use internet without knowing HTML too. How will they know their place?

    People seem to be selectively stretching definition of social media but are rather inconsistent in applying this label. Yeah, plenty of platforms and websites can be described as social media but we generally go with calling them by primary function. YouTube and TikTok are video platforms first. Reasons why Twitter and TikTok are going downhill are vastly different, reasons for their resilience or lack thereof will be very different too.

    Kbin support in Lunar is very rudimentary and read only. The app itself hasn't been updated in 2 months so I wouldn't get my hopes up.

    IIRC it depends heavily on which phase of sleep you're in when you wake up. If you interrupt actual dream / REM phase you're more likely to remember it.
