Pinned toot

@guizzy @lain I'm really pretty tired of this "Pleroma/GNU Social/SomethingElse is Nazi software/space" bullshit.

I had a StatusNet account until Evan killed identi.ca years ago; a shit-ton of great people I talk with here every day have accounts on Pleroma or GNU Social. Some are their developers.

benefited handsomely from there being a large community of dedicated people in Fediverse before Mastodon was a thing. Let's acknowledge that and stop being so condescending.

time! I'm a hacktivist, free software advocate, strong supporter of free and open internet. Used to be a policy hacker. Co-founded the Warsaw Hackerspace.

Currently trying to make sure journalists at @OCCRP have the tools and training to safely expose corruption and organized crime.

Also, I bake bread, sail, and dance Lindy Hop. So, there's that.

I have some INCREDIBLY exciting news. I’m going to be working full time on free software!

Specifically, I have been awarded an EU grant to work on spectrum-os.org, a security-through-compartmentalization-based operating system in the style of Qubes, powered and managed by Nix.

Federation Update:

We have been working to fix the pixelfed to pixelfed and pixelfed to pleroma following bug.

Special shoutout to @kaniini for helping us fix this! We expect to release the fix later this evening.

The Pleroma devs are amazing, and have helped us a lot on our journey to the fediverse.

As if to add salt to my wounds, I've uncovered the work gloves I used to use when I was a grip and set builder for Star Trek New Voyages.

So many memories, sweet and sour alike.

Welp, that's a project that'll never happen again for me.

My one time on the screen as an extra: youtu.be/VJouMFIAN8Q , in one of the bar scenes. I guess I have that, at least.

Black Hat Attendees: Sponsored Session Was 'Snake Oil Crypto'

---
This year, a sponsored session drew ridicule from attendees who claim it was little more than pseudoscience, and the uproar prompted Black Hat organizers to remove the content from the website.

Has anyone ever seen Frankie Boyle and @balrogboogie in a room, at the same time?

No, didn't think so.

I'm not going to bother uploading my videos to any more. The work I have to put into that is not worth the optimistic 1.6% of views I get from YouTube.

Almost NOBODY uses it. And even I can't find my own stuff there without a link.

Sadly PeerTube as a platform is a non-alternative to YouTube. The tech is neat, the P2P aspect is great, but it only works as a backup video hosting for me.

If you do care about it - get in touch with me and offer help.

Thanks for your understanding :)

Holy shit, never considered that, but this is likely accurate.

Clarification: there are other possible definitions of what a "good party" is, and they are as valid. A good party does not necessarily need to have a non-zero derivative at all! ;)

'There is a form of #privacy being violated— activist Maciej Cegłowski calls it #ambientprivacy: “the understanding that there is value in having our everyday interactions with one another remain outside the reach of #monitoring, and that the small details of our daily lives should pass by unremembered. What we do at home, work, church, school or in our leisure time does not belong in a #permanentrecord.

Not every #conversation needs to be a #deposition.”'

Public Transit Projects Cheaper Than Uber's $5.2 Billion Q2 Losses, Ranked jalopnik.com/public-transit-pr

Please fund more transit for people instead of pernicious capitalist nightmares for rich sycophants.

Consider: a "derivative of a party" is the amount of alcoholic beverages that can be procured using the deposit on bottles and cans emptied on said party.

Posit: a "good party" can be defined as a party whose second order derivative is non-zero.

Corollary: my housewarming party was a good party.
