USA e Israel bloqueiam medidas da ONU contra proliferação de armas no espaço e limitação às armas nucleares no Médio Oriente. Contrariamente ao que se comunica nos media a China e Rússia são fortes apoiantes deste tipo de medidas, algumas das quais apoiadas por uma esmagadora maioria quase unânime de países. Que vergonha!

A good piece of software exists and is enjoyed by many users. It's basically done and development has slowed down, but it nevertheless continues to be useful to its users.

Later, a new piece of software enters the same market to solve the same $task. It has to rewrite everything from zero, which may take years. As they make improvements over the years, each announcement keeps them on top of the news cycle, with each inch they move towards the finish line.


$newproduct erodes the mindshare from $oldproduct. It has been present at the forefront of the public's minds and quickly gains marketshare, and users who were familiar with $oldproject prior to the introduction of $newproject start to age out of the market.

This happens even if $oldsoftware is free/open-source and $newsoftware is proprietary, if $newsoftware is missing important features of $oldsoftware, if $newsoftware is a gear in the capitalist machine and will eventually spit its chewed up users out when they get sold to the highest bidder, etc.

The Amazon Rainforest has been burning for 3 weeks straight and it’s only just being spoken about. Please, help raise awareness of the death and destruction of many types of wildlife. It’s only a matter of time before the whole rainforest is gone. #PrayforAmazonia

What it takes is #federation. (To quote my other toot:)

There have been some attempts at cooperative, non-profit and/or open-source ridesharing apps (notably in Austin), and some might still be operating. You are right that their challenge is the networks of drivers and riders. There's a trump card that we could play which would actually turn that into a strength against the competitive/for-profit/proprietary apps: #federation! If all the alternatives (globally) federate with each other using something like ActivityPub, small groups in each town could #selforganise to run driver collectives (teaming up to source/maintaining vehicles, insurance, healthcare benefits, etc), and devs could create any number of independent apps to innovate with better feature and UX - and every app would give you access to every driver or rider in the network!
