billionaires will never use their wealth for good, and it's not because they're bad people (although they are bad people), but because doing so would undermine the entire system of capitalism. billionaires' class interests require that the capitalist system be upheld

capitalist "philanthropy" is either reputation laundering, tax evasion, or an investment for future profit. when facebook installs free internet in poor countries, it's to allow more users to sign up for facebook. when google teaches poor teenagers to code, they're creating a supply of cheaper labor.

slower computers, please 

I'm a computer guy, but I'm very much over fast computers. Most of your computer's resources are wasted loading ads and trackers on webpages. Video games require more and more power to deliver less interesting experiences. Don't get me started on cryptocurrency. Computers are getting increasingly complex, therefore less reliable, nearly impossible to repair, wasteful, and devastating to the environment. We need #slowcomputers and more #retrocomputing

Any sufficiently advanced technology is insufficiently documented

Just migrated to dice.camp. If anyone wants to migrate, make sure you copy all your stuff from your old instance first.

Also, toots can't migrate, but you can archive them to your local machine, just FYI.
