I'm speaking in Uppsala today, about why big data is like big tobacco. And why start-ups is like cigarettes. All these comparisons with disgusting tobacco for digusting things.

Today I've came up with another insane art/hack project. If I'm locked up again remember this.

So I hope you noticed that I've opened a new service, njal.la/, where you can get an anonymous domain name! Hope people will start using it and open up mastodon services. :)

The final remaining patent on the MP3 format — "METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ENCODING DIGITAL SIGNALS EMPLOYING BIT ALLOCATION USING COMBINATIONS OF DIFFERENT THRESHOLD MODELS TO ACHIEVE DESIRED BIT RATES" — has expired today.

Just deleting my phone app from my phone. It's the most useless and annoying of all the apps on there, don't know why it's on the phone at all.

My brother is named Mats, he should get Matsodon.social and run a network there.

Since there's no verification on Mastodon, just send me a copy of your passport and your credit card and I'll personally verify your account within 5-7 business days.

About risk profile:

- Mastodon is like email because you can't delete federated toots
- Mastodon is like twitter in that Google's search bots index it, unless your admins robot.txt it away
- Mastodon is like being a teenager because the people that own your instance can see all your private stuff

Have a talk with your admin about their policies.

By default, assume everyone will be able to read your toots forever.

@Trev We might be able to help with bandwidth/hosting. Send an e-mail to support@ipredator.se if you need something (with what you need) and we'll talk it over internally what we can help with, if any. :)

So while people start moving to Mastodon, I'm working on a new privacy service that will be released in a week or so (at least for beta). I'm so happy about it, it's something I've wanted to release for a long long time...!

Remember when had / feeds for all users? Wasn't that great? Well, and any other server has that too. And it's here to stay, since the protocol is based on this.

Here's mine, for example: mastodon.social/users/rysiek.a

Now you can use your favorite RSS reader to read my toots. I know, right?

@mmasnick Yeah, I've been using a few gnu social systems before as well, and was thinking of running my own instance. Just tired of the admin stuff in general. Getting too old for that shit.

@mmasnick Thanks! Third attempt or something to leave twitter.

And just when I wanted out of social media, I signed up for another system even with a .social tld.. wtf..
