X is becoming a 'ghost town' of bots as AI-generated spam content floods the internet — A sign of the scale is the thriving industry in bot-making::The internet is filling up with machine-generated "zombie content" designed to game algorithms and scam humans. Experts call it the "great AI flood".

Surprisingly good article. It's getting depressing just how much of the internet is bots

Firefox doesn't even support pwa, this is a weird community to post this

What are the craziest misconceptions you’ve heard about programming from people not familiar with it?

As someone who spends time programming, I of course find myself in conversations with people who aren't as familiar with it. It doesn't happen all the time, but these discussions can lead to people coming up with some pretty wild misconceptions about what programming is and what programmers do....

At what age do you think is too old to be living with parents?

Background+rant: I'm in my early to mid-20s and still living at home with my dad. I'm not a NEET and am employed at a normal office job. I enjoy the comfort of my home. I like being with family (and I believe they feel blessed to have their kid at home longer). I like not having to pay rent. However, I also keep feeling some...

My experience using Fedora Atomic (Budgie) for a month or two. (lemmy.dbzer0.com)

I would just like to preface this. This is the first blog post I've ever written, so please please please give me feedback if you can. I also didn't intend on it being here on Lemmy, but Hugo is quite a complex tool that'll take some time for me to understand. Webdev is not my cup of tea....

I also didn’t intend on it being here on Lemmy, but Hugo is quite a complex tool that’ll take some time for me to understand.

after mucking around with jekyll with two months I realized that:

  1. All these ssgs are too complex and fragile
  2. all template languages suck
  3. you end up writing your blog in a code editor, which sucks
  4. I was just using it as a form of procrastination to not write

I ended up just using a dedicated and minimal blogging site (bloggi.co). It works fine, it looks nice, it's nice to write it and I don't have to muck around with a dev environment, git, hosting and all this rot. I've written a couple of posts there

morrowind ,
@morrowind@lemmy.ml avatar

This seems a decent bit more complex than ssgs. What made you find it better?

morrowind , (edited )
@morrowind@lemmy.ml avatar

They don't have any referral system that I know of. If you're gonna join now, keep in mind it seems to be in a sort of maintenance mode; the dev is working on pagy.co and I don't know what his plan is with bloggi, whether he'll just leave it, try to move it to the new project or what. Checking his updates has become impossible since twitter became X.

Alternatively, you could look at write.as, which I've had my eye on, however they don't have as generous of a free plan. Not as polished either, but they are federated

edit: actually I don't think they have a free plan at all any more. I got in during the beta

morrowind ,
@morrowind@lemmy.ml avatar

Mainly an identity, customizability and usually some nice tools like analytics or something. You can partially get this if you make a dedicated community your "blog", more if you run your own server.

But yeah, blogging is explicitly mentioned by lemmy devs as a use case, so if that's what gets you writing go ahead

"deprioritizing" does not explain all of the mentioned decisions. Plus there are still many cases for which there are no alternatives that work similarly. The article is factual and google has plenty of incentive to kill open standards like rss

morrowind ,
@morrowind@lemmy.ml avatar

Why not? That's based on the current system of websites loading in third party ad providers. If you include the ads in the article/have sponsors etc. they will come through the rss.

It's not perfect, but newsletters are making do it with just fine. I read a couple newsletters with them but make no effort to remove them like I do with web articles, because they are not disruptive, inappropriate, heavy or privacy invasive.

I don't get the hate against algorithms, they're just a tool, can be good and bad

morrowind ,
@morrowind@lemmy.ml avatar

recommendation algorithms are fine too, the problem with modern social media is algorithms tuned for engagement.

@morrowind@lemmy.ml avatar

Whatever algorithms youtube, tiktok, instagram etc. use to drive engagement. They don't have any names that I'm aware of

What's a good phone now that doesn't force ads on me?

I'm using a Pixel 6 Pro right now, and I'm looking around to see if there are any good phones. However, I have heard that there are ads in the newer flagship phones (Samsung, Xiaomi). I am willing to spend around USD$750 on a new phone, but I just don't want any crazy ads or preinstalled apps like Facebook. Are there phones that...

morrowind ,
@morrowind@lemmy.ml avatar

Depends what you mean by an "ad" but going by the usual definition no phones have ads except cheap chinese ones and some phones in amazon's program.

Yeah I love a good shitpost, but many redditors seem to have no sense of maturity about when to be serious vs silly. It would drive me insane to see like some news about a suicide bombing in Pakistan or something, and the only comment is some guy trying to make a pun.

I'm pretty sure the developers have better than chatgpt level knowledge. There's a reason they're asking for experts
