@nigeldgreen Oh, and looking at the github of the app (because they apparently stopped working on it and released the code last year):
"Nylas Mail is an open-source mail client built on the modern web with Electron, React, and Flux."
It's going to slow-boil your processor if you have that running and fetching mail in the background.
@nigeldgreen looks like a clone of Apple's mail.app with added surveillance capitalism.
"Activity tracking is built into Nylas Mail so you get notified as soon as contacts read your messages"
Calling home, much?
Full disclosure: I don't know the app from anything other than their website.
@Mainebot @dzuk this thread makes me want to build an ethical alternative, but other than a clear set of values and an openness to inputs and reports, I can't do it much differently than a list on a website.
On one hand, I have the decentweb.eu domain that I'm willing to use for it.
On the other hand I don't have time to run a project like that :/
what does ur home screen look like??
It’s been a month so I’m bringing this thread back https://instance.business/media/e8nohtJYw7-sZKHgC0U
If anyone feels inspired by this idea, please run with it and do whatever! Create new media! Break the system!
#crazyidea that I won't have the resources to do for at least 10 years:
A science fiction audiobook slash metal music piece. At least half the book is various forms of metal music, that emphasizes the events, mood and themes at that point. The "lyrics" to the music is a continuous part of the novel, with no repeating phrases or choruses, other than what would be appropriate in a regular novel.
I had to look up what an "EMG amplifier" is to ask that question.
