Decolonization, Capitalism, Video Games
Decolonizing Games - questioning Western imperial capitalist propaganda and super-story behind the looting, killing and strip-mining of indigenous people in RPGs et al.. One of the best game analysis videos I've seen, (also a shout-out for Neofeud in there!)
@neauoire I just read 'History and Future of FLOSS' by @audrey and the non-discriminatory nature of FLOSS is most certainly part of it:
@320x200 and I also have a forthcoming text that goes into this, specifically in relation to fedi
So @audrey made a link roundup https://lifeofaudrey.com/2019/11/24/links-floss-ethics.html on #FLOSS and ethics: "pieces I’ve been reading on the topic of modern free and open source software practices, licensing, and ethical concerns."
Thank you, Audrey!
Also: in early 2016 I rounded up posts about structural imbalances in funding and use of FLOSS: https://www.harihareswara.net/sumana/2016/01/26/0
@felix @alcinnz Do you have more info on this? I think it is more the issue of the RSS clients pulling things anyway but I might be overlooking something. Also it is not necessarily that we have increased load, just that we have unnecessary data transmission and we want to minimize that. The RSS/Atom feed is just a static file XML file as well.

@royniang the newsletter use case is different from the mailing list. In a mailing list everyone's response gets fwded to all subscribers.
@alcinnz Thanks for boosting! Even if we fix RSS we'd still be interested in a newsletter service because currently LTM uses feedburner for historical reasons and they want to switch. I'd much rather have those funds go towards such an association than to mailchimp or something like that..
@alcinnz We added the full articles since it provides a nice form of 'off-line' reading.. I'd like to not sacrifice that..
It seems however that most feed readers ignore the HTTP last-modified header. So we might have to provide only summaries eventually.
@alcinnz <10% of our visitors using ~80% of our data. Automated feed readers pull our full feed every hour or so.
