Daily Tech News 9 September 2021

  • Australia's High Court - that is, our Supreme Court, because our Supreme Courts are lower courts - just pooped in everyone's cornflakes by ruling that if someone posts a defamatory reply to your Facebook post, you are personally liable. (Gizmodo)

    That is, not Facebook, and not the person who actually committed defamation.

    Now this is Gizmodo and the article is full of vacuous left-wing drivel, but even they see the problem with this, calling it one of the court's "dumbest decisions in recent memory".

    Since this decision directly hurts the entire media industry in Australia, though, left and right alike, we are sure to see poorly-formulated and ill-considered legislation rushed through Parliament with bipartisan support to make the situation even worse.

    There's more at Australia's ABC - also run by left-wing lunatics - but it doesn't contradict anything at Gizmodo.

The Vtuber Your Vtuber Could Smell Like Video of the Day



This is Ouro Kronii of Hololive English Generation 2. All the names of this generation are tortured multilingual puns, so her fellow streamers mostly call her Crow or Kronini.

Gura of EN Gen 1 commented on Kronii's debut that she wanted to hear her read a toothpaste commercial. She's actually done that now - there's a clip out there - but this with the Minecraft animation is even better.
