Software of the day:

github.com/micahflee/porcupine

Porcupine by @micahflee is awesome and simple!
It is the perfect "default web browser."
I use it for everything handling links, including PasswordSafe.

In the wake of this defacement, I want to plug the project. The walkawiki is a project for collecting resources and knowledge on sustainable as well as communal housing and living. Please check it out and if you see somewhere you can help, don't hesitate to get involved.

How to shock people?

When they have a routine of collecting personal data, like name, address and phone number, ask them why.

At least the phone number is never needed for the billing process, so it's usually not required by law.

Quite interesting what responses you get from them.

Good evening ladies and gentlemen, this is the captain speaking. On behalf of Atlassian Airlines I would like to welcome you aboard our flight WTF404 with destination to the Confluence Plugin City. Flight time can drastically change depending on how often we have to reboot the aircraft. Should we experience any turbulence, we kindly ask you to remain civil. It's just the JVM eating up all the memory and CPU. Please understand we might have to interrupt our inflight service then. Thank you!

When I talk to people about decentralizing the internet, fighting the power of corporations and self-hosting they react the same way than when you tell someone you don't eat meat.

I gave a short (15 min) talk at CSVConf last month about federated social media, trust, and how we can better define community boundaries. In particular, I discuss the importance of local-only content that never federates, and the ability to tag other servers as "trusted" and federate things only to those servers. That last idea is something I call "neighborhoods".

"The One Rule of Content Moderation That Every Platform Follows" by Will Oremus onezero.medium.com/the-one-rul

"The underlying problem of our platforms is not that they’re too conservative or too liberal, too dogmatic or too malleable. It’s that giant, for-profit tech companies, as currently constructed, are simply not suited to the task of deciding unilaterally what speech is acceptable and what isn’t."

I also just learned that store-and-forward packet switching was also referred to as "hot potato routing", which, why is it not still called that??
