Wait wat holy shit… Linus apologizes and talks about the future and his behavior on the LKML o.O

Hackers came out on this day in 1995. I’ll probably watch it tomorrow.

For the late night crowd: I have my first *brand new* Mastodon bot. It's available at @animorphs and it generates book covers from the Animorphs series featuring all your favorite celebrities

You know the thing about this stupid EU stupid proposals day has been that it drew valuable attention away from my favourite EFF headline ever eff.org/deeplinks/2018/09/yes-

Please boost.
Fediverse, I have a request.
If you know a woman that is:

Bad news for the European branches of the decentralized web. Not only did and the pass EU Parliament, the Commission introduced new anti-terrorist proposals that would need you to be available 24/7 to police your network for "terrorist content".

It's time to make your voice heard in Brussels. Start with subscribing and following edri.org/ -- the reps for digital rights groups in the EU.

it's a wonder
that I wander
with a stranger
on the bank

where the quicksand
is so thick and
whisks a portion
of my life

amidst the squirming
I am learning
and confirming
fears I've held

and letting go
I finally know
I was afraid
of just myself

Hello Assembled People of European Mastodon! I work at @eff on international copyright. You might have heard of , the EU proposal to require © filters on sharing sites.

We're really worried that this could affect services like ActivePub/Mastodon instances, opening them up to lawsuits or requiring expensive filters.

The key vote is on Wednesday -- please call or write your MEP and ask them to vote against to protect the future of the internet! saveyourinternet.eu/

ICYMI: In July I presented at the Circle of HOPE about the amazing things that the Qubes operating system makes possible, like

- opening email attachments in "disposable VMs"
- managing anonymous identities with Whonix
- keeping secrets like password databases, PGP keys, and sensitive documents stored in vaults without Internet access
- anonymously connecting to VPNs over Tor

How did "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" become the typical sentence that contains all letters of the alphabet and not "sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow" which is objectively a million times cooler

Holy crap. Malware hidden in a strand of DNA hijacks the computer that analyzes that particular gene sequence.

We're going to live in a very weird world man.
