Disney has a long history of being an enemy of content freedom, most notably how they twisted and manipulated copyright law to something distincly NOT in public interest, for their own pocketbooks. Disney+ is the climax of that same ignoble mission so far. https://www.defectivebydesign.org/blog/idad-2021-counteracting-disneys-attack-culture

Let me talk out the architecture I've got planned for my "Haphaestus" browser engine for TVs & eReaders.
I'll tackle the rendering engine first, so let's start there.
I plan to use GPU-rendering to avoid the need for more complex optimizations elsewhere. Rendering all the "fragment" pixels (in GLSL) for each element simultaneously is an unusual programming paradigm, but should be easy enough!
I'll parse relevant CSS properties directly into GLSL input within this module.
@alexandra So we have invented this essentially undeletable database, it's horribly inefficient but it works, right, so shouldn't we be using it to record all of humanity's knowledge as well as evidence of crimes against humanity, instead of using it for funding ransomware and making a few people richer?
@Parienve @valleyforge I had to see what an all-electric generator looked like. Found this: https://www.forbes.com/sites/jenniferhicks/2021/01/27/this-startup-wants-to-make-zero-emissions-portable-power-a-thing/?sh=bab974576d45
It's basically a portable battery bank. I guess it could get you through rolling blackouts if sized appropriately, but it wouldn't help much in an extended outage.
