I am a walking-talking infohazard and am probably dangerous to your wellbeing. I vacillates between curiosity/playfulness, but even IRL I have trouble with signaling intent.

Subverting the way we model the world can break walls we build to protect ourselves. Breaking my own walls is how I overcome my own fears.

This may enhance triggers in those who have differing fear/disgust responses.

Knowing your emotional limits is not a weakness.

I won't be mad if you unfollow.

#WriteFreely v0.13 Release Candidate 1 is here! It includes over a year of changes and improvements, from a new WYSIWYG editor to Web Monetization support to new OAuth provider support.

Read about everything in this latest release and, if you're adventurous, you can upgrade to this Release Candidate today:

If you give it a shot, please share any feedback or bug reports!

Now I'd like to give people the option to financially support #WriteFreely without having to pay for a subscription. So today I'm launching an Open Collective page for anyone who would like to support the project.

My best friend is working on the foundation for a p2p whiteboard.

I colored this live, with the GF on her phone (she did the line art) and another person watching over the internet.

We found some bugs with the panning tool making the image jump around.

Also routed out some issues with IndexedDB and GUN that seemed to be some sort of issues when multiple tabs were loaded.

Still a long way to go, but it worked!

Me and the GF watched Wonder Egg Priority the other day and now we can't stop making pop cat noises at each other.

So I made my her laugh.

Dog's feces test came back and shows basically what I expected. It matches diabetes type 2 and Multiple Sclerosis profile of gut dysbiosis.

The bed is moved. I am 95% of the way out of my apartment.

Only took nearly 2 months. Yay chronic fatigue.

Google has announced a step to kill the third-party cookie, a source of enormous and pernicious privacy violations. This would be great news, except for the fact that Google is replacing it with FLoC, a way for Google (and Google alone) to track you around the web.

Predictably, privacy advocates are pissed off about this and crying foul, because Google's FLoC, while billed as a privacy-preserving technology, is just another way to violate your privacy.


"The study by Moses et al. is focused on the definition of rules specifying the search strategies of T cells for antigen. They discovered striking similarities between the strategies ant colonies use to forage and the immune cells use to find pathogens. The strategies are based on a variety of search behaviors including directional movement using chemokine gradients, random motion using correlated random walk, and movement along physical networks."

β€œHuawei is proposing a fundamental internet redesign, which it calls β€˜New IP,’ designed to build β€˜intrinsic security’ into the web. Intrinsic security means that individuals must register to use the internet, and authorities can shut off an individual user’s internet access at any time. In short, Huawei is looking to integrate China’s β€˜social credit,’ surveillance, and censorship regimes into the Internet’s architecture.β€œ

That’s a hard no from me, John.

"I think we're going to very soon start to build models, predictive models of people, that are so accurate. And then nobody will accept the existence of free will anymore. I'm sorry people who thought... this really upsets some people..."

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.


I'm Shocked... Shocked I say.

"The immune system affects -- and even controls -- social behavior, a new study has found. Researchers discovered that blocking a single type of immune molecule made mouse brains go hyperactive and caused abnormal behavior; restoring it fixed both. The discovery could have enormous implications for neurological conditions such as autism and schizophrenia."
