โ€˜Tis but a Scratch: Does TypeSpec Reignite the Specification Wars?


"TypeSpec is an attempt to combine the design-first and code-first worlds into something that works across both methodologies and reduces cognitive load for designers. ... The TypeSpec approach also means a general decrease in complexity, which, for Microsoft, eases its use across the organization." -- #ChrisWood

Thanks. Something to check.

Have an eye on #AsyncAPI too.. https://asyncapi.com

Somewhat different, but with overlap, for Linked Data #LinkML is interesting.. https://linkml.io

I've tried in multiple browsers, both with and without plugins enabled, yet DuckDuckGo is still failing to provide search results (here, at least) just responding;

There was an error displaying the search results. Please try again.

It's been this way for several hours. Anyone else seeing the same? I'm in the UK.

TIL about #CopyFarLeft licensing..


Like the Peer Production license:

> "The peer production license is an example of the Copyfair type of license, in which only other commoners, cooperatives and nonprofits can share and re-use the material, but not commercial entities intent on making profit through the commons without explicit reciprocity."


@smallcircles@social.coop avatar

@RL_Dane interesting.. do you have a link for me?

I found the blog by @interpeer to be intriguing too.. "four freedoms and a right".


@smallcircles@social.coop avatar

@RL_Dane @interpeer

That is indeed a nice coincidence and quite interesting. I've been musing about the inherent unsustainability of the FOSS movement and - while being proponent of copyleft.. from the toolbox we have - think we need to go next steps in the protection of our works and intended beneficiary availability for the commons.

Ugh.. ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Echo Hub reviewed in @guardian is a device that brings you firmly into 's clutches.

The word isn't mentioned at all. Because who cares about that, right?

"Amazonโ€™s latest Alexa device feels like the missing piece in making a home fully smart"

"The Hub [..] is a cut-price option for a device that usually has to be either professionally installed, costing thousands, or a DIY job that requires more than a little expertise." ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Thinking about attempting to code an service as a learning project, and to perhaps solve the social lock-in issue of gaming platform profiles that really pisses me off. ๐Ÿค”

I really really don't like , however I'm way too attached to my almost 20 year old profile and like to do video game achievements. Having a unified, federated profile that pulls its data from all the different sources (Steam, PSN, Xbox, RetroAchievements.org and especially GOG) would be neat.

@smallcircles@social.coop avatar

@Natanox I am not familiar with these game achievement systems, so this may not be usable for you..

I had various fediscussions in the past where some form of federated verified badges were mused about. Verified to avoid fakes. Various times spec was mentioned, which is JSON-LD based.


Another thought is.. you may get into trouble using official artwork. But that may be an opportunity for artwork communities around badges and get fedi-art alternatives.

I thought the battery of my ancient phone had finally given out. Battery went from fully charged to empty in a heartbeat.

However app was somehow stuck trying to fetch notifications, so I killed it, thinking this was a battery drain. It likely was.

Along the way I found a real useful feature: Data Saver ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

After I turned this on my battery lasts for days now, and I don't get superfluous notifications anymore either.

OMG the thugs at decided they better steal Scarlett Johannson's voice after she declined a contract to get voiced by her.

Two days before launch of she was approached again by Sam Altman, Head of Crooks. And refused again.

To then find her overly uplifting, encouraging, positive sounding voice creating the uncanny valley in these demo's.

When approaching OpenAI by her legal councilors the voice was suddenly pulled.

Capitalism: a social system where the rich live and the poor die.

Irelandโ€™s two-tier cancer drug system: โ€˜I can give one drug to one lot of patients, not to anotherโ€™


@smallcircles@social.coop avatar

@Vallaferescense @catarinac @aral

Prime example is the guy, Ronald Plasterk, who almost became Prime Minister of the Netherlands.. patented under his name the cancer medicine he didn't invent, then earned 32 million Euro when selling his company. Amsterdam Medical Center and researcher who did the work, got nothing.

Now he resigned his candidacy with a "I did nothing wrong, acted with integrity". And under hypercapitalism what he did is indeed normal, the norm. ๐Ÿ˜ก

We maken ons grote zorgen. Natuurlijk over de effecten van de inzet van gezichtsherkenningstechnologie op onze fundamentele rechten en vrije samenleving. Maar ook over de positie van het interne toezicht bij de politie. Het is tijd dat er wordt opgekomen voor de rechten en vrijheden van burgers en het interne toezicht op niveau wordt gebracht.

Today, we launched our new Mastodon instance. It will ensure a privacy-focused space to engage with and get the latest from our Commissioners, departments, and the official voices of the Commission.

We want to thank @Mastodon for stewarding us and helping us make this possible.

Fostering European digital players is vital to our strategy for a stronger .

This is a unique opportunity to grow the community even more. Let's get there!

Delightful ๐Ÿ’• to see that now has an official instance. loves Mastodon, as the image clearly shows.

I hope this love will expand further to not just extend to one microblogging application, but to become a full embrace of the based decentralized environment and technology ecosystems that have formed around its open protocols, such as .

Many thanks to @EDPS for its efforts!

Get inspired by last year's jam, and join the 10-day event..

Feeling especially nostalgic for the '90s right now.

Everything seemed better back then. The way it was supposed to be.

Maybe it's just looking back at being a child which feels this way?

Due to the amount of days Iโ€™ve accrued in my leave balance, I officially was able to put in my two weeksโ€™ notice with the United States Air Force today.

This is a weird time for me. Iโ€™m figuring out what my future looks like, and planning on going back to school full-time. Part of me is really happy, another part of me is sad, worried, terrified, burnt out, and depressed.

I had some amazing experiences, and met some incredible people. We made memories together. Walking away from that puts me in a really weird spot. I have to take time to figure my shit out.
