"A cartoon intro to DNS over HTTPS" by Lin Clark hacks.mozilla.org/2018/05/a-ca

We're so lucky to have Mozilla in the browser ecosystem. They're doing some of the most innovative privacy work right now. (And Lin Clark is great at explaining this stuff!)

I saw the best cpus of my generation destroyed by patents, starving hysterical cache-misses,
dragging themselves down to ring zero at boot looking for an angry bios... the machinery of night,

conference idea:

snooze fest
like rust fest, but instead of two days, it's two months long

- there's no talks
- there's nothing new
- we just listen to old talks
- while fixing broken software

github-contributions.now.sh/ is interesting if you do open-source stuff on GitHub.

Confirms my feeling that 2017 was a year of rest and relaxation for me, although 2018 is starting to ramp up again. toot.cafe/media/sVF5pRLCU2SrnL
