Since we didn't get very many women, enbies, or people of color to submit talks, the folks choosing talks for the Decentralisation & Internet Privacy track at FOSSDEM 19 decided that we'd like to ask of you:
If you submitted a talk, go ask an underrepresented minority friend/acquaintance of yours if they'd like to give the talk with you/in your stead.
CC @fosdem, can we get a little boost 💜?
So your story is 'I'm such a shit sysadmin that I store the passwords in plain text'? https://notalwaysright.com/compounding-the-problem-2/132245/
My favourite of today was me explicitly stating i would like to request my data, all of it, under my rights afforded to me be the GDPR. In true Amazon.de fashion when faced with a choice of doing the smart thing or the dumb thing, they opted for ignoring it and hoping for the best. I have a sneaky feeling that part is likely to be especially entertaining. Followed up with, hey you know that password hash is my data too, right? I'd like that as well thanks
today i had the wonderful pleasure of dealing with numerous idiots of Amazon.de. I admit i never thought the hill i would die on with Amazon would be about password-managers but fucking hell, they're dense fucks. If you had two short planks they wouldn't be as thick. Word of warning to any customer service agents, please don't use the term 'security' to obscure out-and-out bullshit. You're likely to called out one day

Just watched an interview with Paul Reed Smith and my desperate desire to own a PRS private stock has increased - which seriously... how the fuck is that possible ;) #GuitarDesires
also on fun facts, i left FB and Twitter before the whole hooha about CA because i believed their real crime was attention harvesting of multiple generations. Now everyone is leaving them because of 'privacy' violations - this real is reminder that the only thing more sort after than privacy is publicity
