Edward Snowden: Facebook Is A Surveillance Company Rebranded As "Social Media"
I wrote a diapora entry on how to set up a gopher server
Muted words on twitter: "blockchain", "bcash", "bitcoin". Seems not enough, was a good try. Let's try a few more like "crypto market", "lightning ", "iota", "segwit". Eventually I shall destroy all the hype talk from my feeds.
I've pretty much spent my life trying to build better tools to enable other people to solve the world's problems―many of which I'll never understand, which is why it's so important to me to enable people to solve their own problems. (And that's why it's super frustrating to me when people think I'm just a techbro tinkering with programming languages and operating systems because they're cool.) My two biggest challenges are communicating why it's important work, and getting paid. 😓
Productive weekend, saw the Jumanji movie followed by Atomic girl. Haven't seen any anime yet, which is bad. Must correct my ways. The weekend is not over yet 😅
Guh, this article really brings to light the problems with data aggregators and #Facebook in particular:
“It’s like dirty MI6 because you’re not constrained. There’s no having to go to a judge to apply for permission. It’s normal for a ‘market research company’ to amass data on domestic populations."
It's like the U.S. using mercenaries in its war to avoid accountability. Just hire some third-party to snoop on people for you! It's just "market research".
Teenagers are more likely to plead guilty to crimes they did not commit because they are less able to make mature decisions, new research shows. Other research has found adolescents are less able to perceive risk and resist the influence of peers because of developmental immaturity. - https://redd.it/85absi

It seems like the seL4 microkernel project is really taking off. I keep hearing of projects that use it and now a DARPA seL4 "Center of Excellence."
(and I'm not in that community at all, just casually following news)
I'd be so excited about projects like the Rust-based OS https://robigalia.org/, but I'm terrified so see it and others permissively-licensed.
If you're working on an OS or kernel please consider a license with tivoization protection like GPL3, for the safety of your users 😱
why inheritance never made any sense
