Google didn't kill RSS.

They killed a popular *web client* for RSS.

The protocol is very much alive and quietly supported by many sources.

If anything the one action that really did bring harm to #RSS is Google's refusal to add RSS button support to Chrome by default and Mozilla removing it from Firefox.

TIL: ‘Germany’ in Hungarian = Németország, land of the Német = mutes. Apparently this was the Proto-Slavic term for "foreigners, in particular Germanic" (cp. "barbarian", "Welsh"), and the Hungarians got it from them.

Germany is unusual in how many different names it has in other languages 😌

"Trump says he will ban TikTok as the app could be used to collect the personal data of Americans"

Ban Facebook and Google too? Their data collection is so much more powerful. Never seen TikTok scripts anywhere while most apps and sites send your personal data to FB and Google.

@dinoallosaurus …this is true for high education in general, as it is impossible to learn without prior admitting ignorance.

I honestly think everyone should learn a second language or even a third, a fourth one. It's a great way to know about other people's ideas, cultures, traditions, etc... It can also avoid the stupidity caused by arrogance and ignorance.
