What is the "future" of email encryption?

Still gpg? Anything else on the horizon?

Note to self: Remember to mention #Signal and #Wire and all the other #WhatsApp alternatives any time I toot about WhatsApp's relationship with #Facebook.

Otherwise the entire Fediverse will try to "help me" by promoting their favourite alternative... 😛

I wish #Briar were out of beta. It's the only one that is actually radically decentralized!

Next on my test plan is actually Delta Chat (delta.chat/). It's based on e-mail and #Autocrypt, so it should play nice with #Mailpile.

Interesting piece in the [german] taz about antisemitism within the Labour-Party and Corbyns unwillingness to do something about it. Seems like many left-of-the-progressive-center parties share this shit. This is a deep structural problem of many left-wing organisations, and also applies to the Linkspartei in Germany.

Wenn man mit den Cursortasten statt dem Mauswheel oder dem Scrollbalken scrollt, dann hüpft das immer sehr nervig hier. Ist das bei euch auch so? Kann man das ändern? Hintergrund: Mausrad kaputt.

RT @SteveLambert@twitter.com
Press discussing the "Facebook Algorithm" make is sound like a mysterious, complex, evolving organism that we can't understand. It's not. It's the execution of choices made by leadership. Start replacing "algorithm" with "Facebook Corporate Policy" and the mystery fades.

We Klingons know exactly what to do when someone changes their name and/or pronouns.

#mastohelp yesterday I accidentally managed to sort the list of people I follow in instance order. I have no idea how I did that but I want to be able to do it again, does anyone know how?

Is anyone of you operating an #IPv6 -enabled #mail server and would be willing to donate logfiles to a master #student whose #thesis about v6 #spam #filtering I'm supervising?

It would be pen & paper. Not digital.

I am looking for somebody who could help me to design a role playing game. Anybody here who has done that before?

Need one follower urgently! This number of followers cannot stand.

Ich wohne auf dem Land. Abgeschieden. Genug Lebensraum für Insekten...

Aber es summt und surrt nicht. Wir haben ein Problem. Ein massives Problem.

Dear <coworker>,

PLEASE stop checking your email on vacation. You have an auto-responder up, and everything that you're forwarding to me has already been forwarded to me by the person who originally sent it.

Plus you make me feel awful for not checking my work email on the weekends, never mind vacation.

Best,
V
