Hi there. My name is Matei Stanca and I make websites and stuff.
Neurocracy is a project started by my good friend Joannes and myself, which has grown over time to include illustrations by Alice Duke along with contributions by Axel Hassen Taiari, Edward Smith, Io Black, Leigh Alexander, Malka Older, and Yudhanjaya Wijeratne. It aims to be equal parts interactive fiction and cautionary tale about the intersection of surveillance capitalism, big data, and authoritarianism. This is conveyed through the medium of a futuristic equivalent of Wikipedia known as Omnipedia, in which the reader is presented with articles and information in a familiar format so that they may piece together the history and events of the year 2049.
Now that we’ve had a little more time since the initial shock and awe of the Elon Musk purchase of Twitter, social networks have had a chance to build up interest as potential next networks to replace Twitter.
We have been given a rare chance, as a culture of social media addicts, to break a cycle we keep repeating and move to something that isn’t just owned by somebody who stands to make billions of dollars from your decision.
Unfortunately, we’re in real risk of falling into the same well as before, convinced that the open choice is somehow too complicated. That has meant that two separate social networks, Post and Hive, have driven interest from Twitter’s failings, away from open networks like Mastodon or the broader Fediverse, or even legacy networks that have generally proven good corporate citizens, like Automattic’s take on Tumblr.
Don’t fall into the well again.
">0.25%"value tells [Browserslist] to only [target] browsers that make up more than 0.25% of global usage. This ensures your bundle does not contain unnecessary transpiled code for browsers that are used by a very small percentage of users.
In most cases, this is a better approach than using […] the
"last 2 versions"value[, which targets] the last two versions of every browser, which means support is provided for discontinued browsers such as Internet Explorer. This can unnecessarily increase the size of your bundle if you do not expect these browsers to be used to access your application.
Ultimately, you should select the appropriate combination of queries to only target browsers that fit your needs.
