facebook messenger is the worst narc I know. what jackoff built a site with read receipts AND “last active 3 minutes ago” AND demands you use your real name so any extended relative or forgotten acquaintance feels like they own your time and immediate presence forever

It's been neat to watch PWAs go from this weird thing the Chrome team was pushing, to a handful of "hello world" apps, to some impressive apps for emerging markets like Flipkart and Konga, to a mainstream thing that all browsers are embracing and big players like Twitter and Instagram are building for as well.

BTW fun fact: every Mastodon instance is its own PWA. 😁

@drequivalent @cwebber People already have computers in their bodies: pace makers, defibrillators, insulin pumps, cochlear implants, and etc. Karen Sandler recently spoke again about the topic in relation to her defibrillator: sfconservancy.org/news/2018/fe

She and people like her are out on the forefront of this, but perhaps people interested in wearable and elective body modification tech could join them to help make progress on these issues? That would be cool.

@drequivalent Also my suspicion is that we're going to *need* a libre hardware version of these in terms of "computing is becoming part of you more and more physically, and user freedom issues are no longer nerd rights but human rights"
