Brave is a web browser that uses components from Chrome (Chromium) , to build a more security-conscious browser which also has a server-independent commenting mechanism like an old ICQ project had.
Like Chrome, it's missing fundamental things.

Exploring a mix of ideas, and waffling on a bunch. Maybe I'll come back and edit a bit every so often.
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
I once learned the idea that if one does nothing to seek out news, the important things will find their way to you.

Everything is frail to failure. Be it hardware, software, data, business relationships, or people, nothing is immortal and immutable.
Many things are immediately recognized; the hardware and software, but we fail to see people; the wetware. They represent the intellectual backbone of major projects, the "wet infrastructure" upon which our technology relies, and when they cannot contribute, their projects suffer and we suffer. Their influence isn't just notable, but critical.
For the internet, esr calls them Load-Bearing Internet People.
What should an Install Guide accomplish?
These are some thoughts which came from thinking about the problem of documentation for the Devuan Linux distribution. I wanted to take some time to think an opinion through here.
I don't think a Devuan install guide should exist, and any interested people would be more helpful upstream.

Content platforms, funding systems and search engines can go insane with ideological bias, creating an extralegal layer oppressing content creators. Can a completely neutral platform, which stands wholly on legal ground and is detached from moral judgement, even exist?
This is a rambling thought experiment which thinks about a payment processor, crowdfunding or patronage platform..

I have a hypothesis I've been playing with that would say that snowflakes and the semi-autistic are new and not normal human variation.
Intelligence, understood as measured IQ, can be predicted by the IQ of the parents, but there's more to think about.
I prefer to think about "smart" as something like the nexus of IQ, success and even self-reported happiness.
Real Venezuela has never been tried.

In Venezuela, when a democratically-elected socialist starts ruining the fourth largest oil industry in the world, using socialism, effort is made to initiate a regime change.
It begins as a pro-communist propaganda piece on how socialism didn't do nothin' wrong and real communism has never been tried. It gets good later on, as there are legitimate concerns actually being shown.
Feel free to look at this and compare it to current (2017-2018) reactions to United States president Donald Trump, because it will make your head explode.
You can thank events featured around this time, and the fucktardedness that followed, for plunging 90% of the population into poverty.. and I'm not exaggerating. This is the wealth-generation of socialism.
