“It is possible to determine from the collected data what date and time the anonymized user visited YouPorn and PornHub, and in some cases what search term they entered into the porn site and which specific video they watched.”
I did write "debatable" next to it though (just for myself) so I could move on to the next topic.
While doing homework for my German language class, I found a conflict in the Deutschkursbuch and what I have learned from film history class (the problem/question is about the film "M" directed by Fritz Lang).
While I know I should just match the book when choosing the answer (it's a True/False decision) and there also might have been something that I missed in the reading comprehension portion leading to the question, it just feels really weird selecting the "wrong" answer as correct.
Oops! Ich habe die Kartoffelknödel vergessen.
One of the reasons why the FOSS world is often split when it comes to political topics:
FOSS attracts mainly two quite different crowds: The user freedom aspect (plus lack of state control) attracts many staunch libertarians, whereas the aspect of cooperating "for the greater good" (plus lack of commercial control) mostly attracts progressives.
It's actually quite surprising that those two groups, who usually hate each other with passion, can cooperate on the same thing.
I know there are other options out there, but going to try to stick with Wordpress (at least for now).
Revisiting Wordpress for the first time in a few years.
I like it because it's well supported and I don't want to code my next personal site by hand.
But at the same time I like simplicity- not fully minimalist/barebones, but something where I'm not spending a lot of time looking for where things are to toggle them off. I'm sure when you work with it all of the time it comes naturally, I'm just not there yet.
rms, the state of free software, etc.
finished writing this one the other night, may as well put it out there a bit: https://p1k3.com/2019/10/20/
Btw if the first @apconf talk you watch is this one (my keynote), you should know that the audio is better on all the other ones but mine. We made an error in the audio setup and so we had to use the audio from the camera instead of from the microphone I was holding. Considering that, it sounds ok-ish! But definitely very echo'y... sorry.
We fixed the issue after this talk, so the other ones generally sound better.

A lot of people were talking like there was an implicit assumption that there will be another #APConf. There could be, but it's clear that the community needs to spread out the organization of the next one. Probably FOSDEM dev room is a good start and the right thing for 2020; going forward, maybe another APConf would be good (I think structurally the format was very nice).
It's clear just how much we got done by meeting face to face. Let's make sure we don't lose that.
