I was looking more at xkeyscore but no, they don't release anything official on stuff like that. We only know stuff around the edges, like what people have figured out.

lol for sure. Seems like they're just used to the Silicon Valley culture of "move fast and break things" and really don't like being told what to do by anyone.

I didn't realize they were trying to pull that. Jesus, it's like they're trying to do the worst possible thing at every turn, huh.

Movie studios often remake great films that are difficult to improve upon but what if they did the opposite? What bad film could be made into a great film if it were to be remade? by portcity in Movies

Well that's a piece of IP (intellectual property) that's got to cost a lot and probably has already been sold to some big movie studio. Good thinking though!

I don't think a streaming platform costs $10k, I think you can do it for far less than that .. but maybe i'm wrong! But yeah, i think piracy, decentralization is really important in terms of keeping media alive and accessible for generations. It's basically our version of the library of Alexandria. As soon as netflix goes out of business (which i suspect will be sooner than people think), think of how fast allllllll that content will just disappear.

Wow! This is awesome! Maybe we need to start a wiki for the podcasts sub and add this incredible post to it? What do you think? By the way, I have a really good plan to start bringing more users to the site, and I'm actively working on it, but it's the kind of thing that I have to roll out carefully and it may take a week or two or three to get rolling initially. So just because it may look like I'm not doing anything, I am! I'm just trying to do it right. I'll let you know once the trap has been set as it were lololol

It was??? That explains why ... on a really interesting twitter thread where this producer was talking about how soon all the streaming sites are gonna go out of business and then we wont have access to all the content they own cuz no one will have downloaded it, someone pointed out that some of the early Dr. Who's are only available via audio recordings that fans recorded off their TV's like on tape recorders :)

A lot of people think Q-anon was set up by intel agencies to be a cartoonish version of what's actually going on so that all the rubes would be following the cartoonish version and be blind to what's really going on. Interesting about the frame problem. I will check out that podcast! thanks.

See, now you're thinking like a dramatist! This is all it takes. REmember when we were talking about Shakespeare? This is the kind of thinking his plays involve ... like "how cinematic is this play?" "how much is this play like a movie?"
