Kids are born hackers.

വളരുമ്പോൾ ആ കൗതുകം കാത്തുസൂക്ഷിക്കുക :)

I forgot my work laptop does not have infinite ram

How did you manage to get off of #WhatsApp? My entire family, including my elderly grandparents, and family living on the other side of the country, are so deeply connected through whatsapp chats and groups that I'm afraid I will loose sight of them once I delete the service. I really hate the app with passion, but I just don't know if deleting it will be beneficial or not.

Guys, gals, them. Linux is about doing what you want.

Embrace it.

Don't judge.

Just rejoice that it's not Windows or MacOS.

@arunmathaisk Thanks for sharing it. I would add a mention to if I were writing it today. It is similar to micronaut, but appears to conform to the JAX-RS spec.

What an amazing blog post guide about "modern" web development in Java by @akshay .

It feels nice seeing such diversity and so many different instances on the federated timeline.

Mastodon/Pleroma has really taken of.


This utter crap is being distributed through schools from the 'local authority' so presume today. The level of disinformation is staggering. I'd be proud to find my kids learning to use any of these. Except Discord but that's nothing to do with hacking.


Privacy in Digital Age | Abraham Raji @avronr

Mothers are special people. They know how you feel from the way you sound over a phone call. Well they've been seeing you almost constantly from your birth. They also use this incredible amount of information to tell you exactly the right to make you do exactly what they want.


The best encryption t-shirt ever. 😍 Now available in the Tutanota fan shop. 😀👇

Tutanota is still blocked in Russia to stop encrypted communication. We need to fight for privacy around the world. ✊ If you are affected, you can still access Tutanota with a vpn or the Tor browser.

Silicon Valley has a monopoly on the web. But everyone of us can make a difference by choosing privacy-friendly alternatives. Here are some ideas:
✅ Tutanota email & calendar
✅ Firefox browser
✅ DuckDuckGo search
✅ OpenStreetMap
✅ Mastodon
What are your favorites on the web?

While some conspiracy theorists argue not to use encryption as this would put you on the radar of three-letter agencies, we argue the opposite: Everyone should use encryption to protect others.

Consumerism has done this weird trick of pushing "convenience" as a kind of moral sentiment. It does not apply to "work" (or "labor" to those on the left) which is supposed to be non-fun but required.

The central idea seem to be that anything that is not one's "job" should involve as little effort as possible. Laziness is a virtue and anything that requires effort is dismissed as foolish, old-fashioned drudgery. But don't most rewarding things require effort?

If we want people to move away from corporate hegemony, we will also need to convince people that convenience is often not a virtue and that doing things the hard way can be fun, interesting and convivial (not to mention more sustainable, local and humane).
