Even better example: There has been two "Ponzicoin" that had people putting in money into, and then somehow these were scams. Who could have foreseen?

#OpenStreetMap has one tile rendering server for all of USA, and that server can no longer keep up with peak US traffic.

If you, or your company,are interested in hosting a rendering node in the US (or elsewhere), please contact us.

@amapanda Ah, I commented on the issue then too. It'd be so much more convenient if all the people were just on fedi.

I mean, we can always host another, or push some of the US traffic to us, if you can handle the latency of serving from Sweden and nidhogg can handle the load. Our NREN tells us that north american traffic is cheap and easy for them.

@carl Dissemination of truth and resilience to misinformation. This is an area where algorithmic timelines designed to boost "engagement" have done us great harm by promoting fast and strong emotional triggers over well-reasoned and reasonable discussion.

Without common ground in the world how it is, we can't have a useful conversation in how to improve it.

And the boosting of engagement-driving content mostly promotes intentional and unintentional propaganda over genuine discourse.

I am honored to be chosen by the Nordic ministers of culture to be one of thirteen experts in a new Nordic think tank. The think tank will take a closer look at the tech giants’ influence on democracy in the Nordic Region and come up with proposals for solutions.

The think tank will carry out the work over the course of the next 12 months, and will result in a presentation of its recommendations in the first half of 2023. 

So all thoughts and comments are welcome!

🔌 harmonised fast-charging technology
🔌 unbundling of sale of chargers

No, but they didn't negotiate a formal exception, so the EU keeps making these reports since Euro is the default in EU membershio.

With no attempts to tie the SEK exchange rate to the Euro, it will of course not be stable. And this is the choice made by Sweden, as they are not looking to join.

Hiked up a hill to build up apetite for mother's day brunch.

Lack of staff leading to huge queues? On a scale of Stockholm (1-2 h) to Amsterdam (5+ h), how bad is it?
