From Spiked:

If life ever returns to normal, one thing no one will miss from the lockdown era is the 'TV goldfish'. For over a year, we've watched the disembodied, pixelated faces of contributors to live TV mouth their words out of sync with their audio, gulping away as if in a private fish tank. This isn't the exception for internet video, it's the norm.

John Day is one of the internet's greybeard founding fathers. For a decade he has been advancing a set of improvements to the current mainstream internet protocols. His proposals – called RINA (Recursive Internetwork Architecture) – revisit and build on Louis Pouzin's founding concept of datagrams (data packets). Simplifying these features allowed the original inter-networking protocols (IP) to get out of the door in the 1980s and 1990s, and allowed for the rapid growth of the internet. But the current system we have – TCP/IP – is holding back new innovation.

    Just the kind of masturbatory 2 minutes' hate I'd expect from fans of a has-been OS (Linux, not Windows) and its ecosystem dominated by purple-haired Jewish trannies who think writing good software is a "meritocracy" and that meritocracies are bad because Jews shriek with rage when they see somebody doing something better than they can.

    The same hooknosed weasels are behind ideas like "equity" and "common core" in which the top performers are hampered or forced out, and the rest are held in line with codes of conduct. And, amusingly, the same purple-haired Jewish trannies who think Linux is totally righteous oversaw Linux being usurped by Jewish and Chinese corporate interests, and even Microsoft itself is biting off a huge piece of Linux because incompetent Jewish trannies in charge of Linux are sitting around selling out and circle-jerking each others' pronouns rather than maintaining a competitive OS.

    In 5 years or so when Microsoft Linux is a dominant product, and casual users are running Linux with the Linux Subsystem for Windows, purple-haired Jewish trannies will shriek and infight and blame their own incompetence on the White man's colonialism.

    -1 sad but you're probably right about the outcome

    OP, are you legitimately antisemitic, sinophobic and transphobic, or are you just working by rote off a
    'bigot bingo' card today? You failed at bigot bingo because you forgot to include fat-shaming and alien anal-probing. Cheers!
