Today's issue of Tales from the Dork Web is especially 🔥

"The biggest con Silicon Valley ever pulled off was convincing us they’re masters of innovation. Netflix brought us digital movie distribution *cries in Bittorrent*. Apple introduced Music streaming to the world *laughs in Napster*. Facebook invented social media *no they didn’t*."

"Most tech companies disrupt by displacing existing middlemen and acting as a new gatekeeper. Uber displaces taxi services. AirBNB displaced couchsurfing. Facebook displaced your friends." 🙀 😹 😿 👏🏼

time!
Allô! Je m'appelle Anne-Marie, ou Anma pour faire plus court! Je suis biologiste de métier et geek à l'année! J'aime les jeux qui me racontent des histoires et qui ont des univers complexes à explorer. Je podcaste avec On a juste une vie depuis 7-8 ans déjà! J'aime un peu trop dormir, manger, et flatter mon chat.
Je speak English souvent et un peu à travers mon français, même si je viens du fond de la campagne québécoise.

I set up my dev.to account for web monetization (dev.to/devteam/dev-is-now-web-) some months back, and got my first payment today.

I can already tell this is going to make me rich. 💰 😹
