Is WebASM the new Java-browser-plugin? I wonder if we'll see WebASM Flash shims or full Flash implementations in an attempt to keep older things (like HomeStarRunner!!!!) alive? Will WebASM become hot, and then get plagued with security issues, and eventually be deprecated and removed from browsers like Java/Flash?



EOS uses a slightly modified version of WebAssembly. If your browser app can run in that, it's probably safe. Another interpretation could be that EOS is completely broken and doomed. Also a possibility.

@djsumdog Just the other day I saw a project that's about implementing WebAssembly on bare metal, which would be at least a neat intellectual curiosity.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
