Personally, have been using ublock origin without regrets.

When asked about voat being a threat, and the repetition of the Digg migration, Reddit CEO said: "reddit had better technology than Digg. I don't think Voat has better technology than reddit." submitted by distortedlines to MeanwhileOnReddit

There were multiple gripes with Digg, that led to multiple migrations. Back in the day, I used both reddit, and digg, and it was the 09 F9 11 02 ... AACS controversy that made me stop going to digg, and I was not the only one. The later redesign, and tech changes, were just symptomatic of digg's push to become financially viable to its investors in lieu of its user base. In retrospect, people just look at final blows, and not the entire ebb, and flow of users of different content curators, I mean, eight years is multiple lifetimes in how the internet functions. And that is precisely what is happening with reddit. Then again, just grabbing the relevant bit from wikipedia on the digg refurbishing, it is remarkably similar:

Digg faced problems due to so-called "power users" who would manipulate the article recommendation features to only support one another's postings, flooding the site with articles only from these users and making it impossible to have genuine content from non-power users appear on the front page. Frustrations with the system led to dwindling web traffic, exacerbated by heavy competition from Facebook, whose like buttons started to appear on websites next to Digg's.[18] High staff turnover included the departure of head of business development Matt Van Horn, shortly after v4's release.

It is very possible that this is not reddit's digg moment, but I do see it as a signal flare of sorts. If I were a betting man, I would say that a redesign of reddit, with more "sculpted content" is coming in two-three years, and everything that has happened recently with FPH, with Victoria, with Pao, with r/all cultivation, was just laying down the foundation. Then again, out of the personalities of reddit, the only one I really trusted was Aaron Swartz. Reddit as I knew it fighting SOPA was dead when TPP was not the news story it should have been, through some weird mix of moderation, and user apathy.

On the plus side, reddit's decentralisation of content, where people have been unsubscribing from subs for years, finding niche content is still its greatest strength, being pushed for years. The amount of traffic that probably drives both reddit, and imgur through subs gonewild is probably enough to keep nsfw content on the site, which means some level of anonymity will be maintained. Last I heard, candidfashionpolice, aka creepshots without any of the negative press, was still up, just not making the same news.

Honestly, probably use it to fork, and distribute a gittorrent project, or documenting github alternatives, with their pros/cons/prominent projects. It is either that, or going full retard, and documenting all the SJW drama that happens both on github, and open source projects.

Ex Machina - your thoughts? submitted by reaver_man to scifi

Project2501 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

I think it's the best SF movie we have seen in a long while

I think this is the crux of it. It attempted to ask some real questions, it knew the audience expectations, played off of them, and knew enough about the subject matter to go explicitly state "how this came in almagamated/applied discplines in machine learning isn't as important as the basic questions of how it reflects on us". One of the aspects of it I thought was a flaw early on was actually a red flag to the plot/characters at hand. When I watched it, and Chappie within a week of one another, one I would recommend to others, this one, the other feels tired hitting all the established tropes, without bringing anything new to say.

/v/electroswing - For that specific niche music genre where vintage or modern swing and jazz is mixed with house, hip hop or EDM. submitted by Project2501 to newsubverses

Electro Swing is a musical genre combining the influence of vintage or modern Swing and Jazz mixed with House, Hip Hop and EDM. Electro Swing is the use of Jazz samples from a Jazz record (either classic or modern) swing, jazz and big band era plus modern beats.The period starts from the early 1930s to the late 1940s and would include music by Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Lionel Hampton and Benny Goodman among many others. Successful examples of the genre create a modern and dance-floor focused sound that is more readily accessible to the modern ear but that also retains the feeling of live brass and the energetic excitement of the early swing recordings. The best-known artists include Parov Stelar and Caravan Palace while one-off international hits include 'Why Don't You Do Right?' by Gramophonedzie or Nr. 1 World Hit We No Speak Americano by Australian duo Yolanda Be Cool Vs DCUP.

In addition to individual artists and one-off hits, Electro Swing is a genre whose growth has largely been fuelled by a series of European compilation albums which have drawn together works by a variety of producers. These include the British 'White Mink : Black Cotton' series described by Mixmag as "Electro Swing's first landmark moment"[1] and France's 'Electro Swing' series. In the United States, parties such as San Francisco's 'Trapeze' have showcased the genre's artists.

Taken from WIkipedia article on the genre

Pretty much one of my favourite genres of music, the subverse is meant to be a place to share links to music videos, albums, compilations, mix tapes, or a general discussion on artists/events/what have you.

Final Fantasy VII - E3 Demo PS4 submitted by TheNightsKing to gaming

I know this is all I wanted on first the PS2, and then the PS3. I don't know what it says about me that I lost hope, though resigned myself to repurchasing Chrono Trigger again, and again.
