Who is doing the most good in the world, and how?

My feed is filled with bad news, which is my fault for using the fediverse as a news feed, but it made me wonder: Which organisations, groups or individual people in the world are doing the most good for our world? I'm particularly interested in those who manage to do good on a larger impact scale (quantity or quality), but if...

Yep, 2.4 million estimated lives saved across 60 years of weekly donations. He's the kind of human you write songs about. Retired from donating at doctors behest in 2018. I hope he inspired new donors.

Just about everything except truly basement-tier China tech sitting in warehouses has C now so you'll soon be glad to have the ports.

USB C is a form factor (pretty little reversible oval cable). Thunderbolt is a protocol and yes it uses USB C for the form factor. Other protocols on USB C cabling include 2.0 (ancient speed, used for charging only these days), 3.1 (old speed) 3.2 (slightly old but also not, it's weird, and most common nowadays), DisplayPort (lovely modern video standard), and USB4 (which is newest and fast, but not quite as fast as TB). Decent rule of thumb is USB4 will always be one step behind Thunderbolt in speed (currently ~80gbps vs 40gbps in USB4). The cable will work at the fastest speed permitted by both devices. If they both have TB, then TB speed and power. If only one is TB, it'll go at USB speed over yes the same cable because...

Lastly, any proper spec cable will negotiate the best, safest power transfer between chargers and devices. So just don't buy complete junk, read a couple reviews, you'll almost certainly be fine.

Yeah, AMD wiped Intel out this decade, including the low-end. You can pick up an AceMagician with a (relatively, for a node) monster 5600U and 16GB RAM for $250. Also great for parents/grandparents needing a new basic desktop!

For sure, liquity is pretty great. As to why it's underutilized, it's similar to what mouse is saying. Particularly in the early days, LUSD commonly ranged from 0.97 to 1.03. It was always fine in the end, but it requires that one extra step of making sure you're repaying at a beneficial time (or buying troves at a beneficial time). And of course, any add'l step makes a protocol slightly less tasty. I think the range is much smaller these days with added liquidity.

Echoing @laughingmime... it's gotta come with volume. There's just nothing there right now. It can be a pump or a dump, but something's gotta give. No one outside the holders cares about crypto right now sadly. It'll return though. It always does.

Manually reviewing or using something like https://redact.dev/?

Hi! ..... pattern

It's pretty decent in browser as a PWA. Then coming soon, you'll want to keep your eye on fast-moving app Artemis -- spiritual successor to Apollo, built for kbin/lemmy.

https://kbin.social/m/ArtemisApp/t/121025

The dev is very active on her Mastodon.

If you're enjoying kbin, you'll want to keep an eye on Artemis - spiritual successor to Apollo based on kbin.

If you're okay browsing via lemmy, there's Mlem on iOS and Memmy via TestFlight. Official reddit apps Boost and Sync are also both switching to the fediverse, Lemmy first.

I'll go where my friends (and content) go. Kbin and Lemmy are both very satisfying so far. As for Discord, I don't know if people are mad enough yet to bother. One civil war at a time. Otherwise, I've got my eyes on both Revolt and Comm in the future.

I like to think so. Logically there's got to be an Ethereum community on Mastodon somewhere considering how large crypto Twitter was, but I've not found it yet.

I concur. Will set it up in the morning. Dealing with some personal stuff this past week or so.

Gonna be the optimist here and simply educate.

America isn't the whole world. This article is Canadian. Canada's First Nations (and all Indigenous but especially them) believe one version of gender nonconformity comes from the person being of two spirits simultaneously. Hence two-spirit (2S). Today you're one of the 10,000. Congrats.

I'm not an expert on the topic; it's just something I've read about and wanted to share. Wouldn't want to get the more intricate details wrong. I think it's great you want to learn more though. It's fascinating stuff. I'd recommend checking out better sources than I.

Whaddup! Excellent first post.

This is super cool. And... wildly humbling to see how far away retirement on just ETH is...

Yep, travel to the instance from your login (if you're a kbin.social user, it's at "https://kbin.social/d/feddit.de" no quotes).

Then go to the top right and block the domain.

I'd say successful

Hmmm, not sure that's possible yet. But I'm watching curiously!
