Who selected this footage and where, when and why was it shown to the jurors prior to sentencing?

Prior to the universe existing, there was no 'what'. Just void, null, absolute absence.

The emergence of the universe created its own 'what' and exists within itself without reference to a boundry.

Well, lets build on end-to-end encryption, and go from there. :D

Where does this idea originate? Do you understand the idea behind the Fediverse?

As for 'Grandma', it's like telling her that it doesn't matter which service she uses, they all do the same thing and just as safe as each other. :D

Interoperability between different systems is the key. Centralisation is the problem. Mastodon and a 'Fediverse' of similar applications brings interoperablility without being tied to profit-generated platforms.

Centralised social media platforms become unwieldly and polarised. They are, also, very vulnerable to manipulation and technological disruption.
