"Starlink satellites would orbit at 1/30 to 1/105 of geostationary orbits, and thus offer more practical latencies of around 7 to 30 ms, comparable to or exceeding existing cable or fiber networks"

I posted earlier hair the FB devs ad for f8 on Twitter and the negative comments. Twitter showed me the ad again today and I'm happy to report the replies are still going strong. Also this time I grabbed the link: https://twitter.com/fbplatform/status/1070858583930105856?s=19

@brainblasted OK but what's the alternative?
Should they just let the bank accounts go dry and then shut the project down? Or plaster banner ads everywhere?
Don't get me wrong I hate em too, but I don't want those sites (archive, wikipedia) to go away from lack of funds.
@HerraBRE yes same here. There was a lot of activity during the summer but now it's stalled a bit. I suppose that happens , but I hope they are not stuck on a fundamental or something.
I always tell people about it when I get half a chance because the more people we have asking tc39 to do this the better!
"And if no one can imagine doing social networking better than Facebook, remember that no one dreamed that the personal computer, once little more than a toy for hobbyists, would displace the mighty mainframe."
Maybe the personal server #FreedomBox can replace the mighty centralized servers of major platforms too.🤔
What do you think?
We need to find a way to make server OS and software stack as reliable and maintenance-free as that.
It's doable, it's just that all server software is expected to be babied by dedicated sysadmins, and their neediness is a reflection of that.
(Not knocking FreedomBox, I have never tried it)
