Very much looking forward to taking part in Waag’s Public Stack Summit in June.

“We’ll set our sails for open water to fix the broken internet. An unconference with over 50 public stack pioneers, during We Make The City festival in Amsterdam

With recent attention on the dark side of surveillance capitalism and data extractivism it has become inevitable to invest in open, fair and inclusive internet … the internet needs to be fixed.”

We’re excited to announce that nearly three years after the introduction of the Fairphone 2, we’re not releasing a new model just yet ➡️ frphn.co/refreshedfp2tw

The Librem 5 phone looks only more and more promising. :linux:

Honestly, #Tusky is the best mobile app for the fediverse. It's buttery-smooth, supports pretty much all of the features of the web platform, and has a great UI that is extremely easy to use.

I would recommend it for anybody who uses Android, hands down.

Password Management
or The Virtue of Being Forgetful

I recently started using a password manager ful-time, and the ability to let go of so. many. passwords. in my brain is like a huge relief. Now I just need to remember The One Password, and all else will follow.

One Pass to rule them all, one Pass to find them, One Pass to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

Nå når skrivepermisjonen er på vei mot slutten må jeg nesten finne noe å gjøre. Noen som trenger en utvikler med lang .Net-erfaring fra juni av?

I do not want to live on this planet anymore:

"[T]he exploit is the first to show that GPUs can flip individual bits stored in dynamic random-access memory. (...) It's also the first Rowhammer attack that uses standard JavaScript to compromise a smartphone, meaning it can be executed when users do nothing more than visit a malicious website. Another key innovation: on average, GLitch takes less than two minutes to compromise a device"

A couple of days ago I started paying for an email service for the first time in my life; . I am very satisfied so far, and I find the spam filter and the custom domain setup to be exeptionaly good. Time to transition away from my Gmail address!

Ok, en kjapp virtuell håndsopprekning; hvor mange skriver mest på engelsk her på Mastodon, men hovedsaklig #norsk på Twitter?

I'm going to use this account for interactions in English, and @rsolva for / . I would like to see more localised conversations here on Mastodon, about norwegian etc!

The @GIMP team has just announced GIMP 2.10.0 release candidate 2 is out with multi-threaded painting, rewritten UI themes, on-canvas panorama rotation in 3D, various improvements, and 40 bug fixes!

Oh those "expiring e-mails" in GMail even require Google login to view as webpage? Wow, fuck that shit. That's too obvious

Gmail enters the "extend" phase of Embrace, Extend, Extinguish by creating new proprietary features for email then forcing non-gmail users the view the mail through a link with Google Login (and sometimes SMS confirmation!)

The #mastodon video was posted to #HackerNews and its the first time I've seen a positive thread on mastodon there. The #DeleteFacebook movement is really making people inspect their use of social media.
