I think we're seeing some weird consequences of this playing out with companies like WeWork claiming to be tech companies instead of real estate investment trusts, and with the rising commercial rents in the Bay Area. People trying to grab money to hoard instead of spending it.

You have to believe in sinister outsiders with Jewish names pulling the strings of world economies in secret, which is not how macroeconomics works. You have to believe that central banks have devious purposes and intentions, and yet that major corporations are harmless kittens.

I'm nearly finished with this short book and it was well worth the $4.99.

The big hole in the cryptocurrency boat is that you have to believe that a "fiat currency" like USD or EUR is bad because of central bank conspiracy theories and also that "fiat cryptocurrencies" are good.

So I finally fixed https on @ForgottenWeir's website, since I hate CAs I was putting it off

Go check out his art now that it works!

Non-sysadmins be like: opaque DSLs are way better than shell scripts. No one knows how to write shell scripts

Oh, but linux people told you it was the best. I get it.

Love too be treated like a criminal every single month for having ADHD and having to beg a doctor to continue to let me take the same medication I've been on for 11 years

Do you see how fucked this is?

I need to suck it up and cheat at more bioware games
Their stories are good, but their mechanics are so hellishly tedius

No, but it is immoral to have climate change in the era of babies.

That’s Marvellous,Andrew.That’s one meal. Now assume for the sake of argument that our unemployed family of four eats that deliciousness three meals a day for a week.That’s £81.69. Unemployment is £71.70. So you’ve starved for one day and not paid bills. You Barbour wearing cunt.

Jeff Bezos makes enough money in 3 hours to pay off all school lunch debt for the entire country. Why doesn't Jeff want to help keep children from going hungry? 🤔

Gamergate may be dead but its awful legacy lives on

Hate, lies and video games: Six ways #Gamergate poisoned gaming and ruined the online world for the rest of us

I am trying to write Dungeon World since I wanna do a session focused on the NPCs in my Spelljammer game

It's a long joke about disposability and colonialism, but I think it needs to spend some time looking at those the PCs are stepping on to get to the top

Making a weed themed version of Twitter called Stond and instead of 240 characters it's 420 and everything else is the same
I think "Stonr" is better, but this idea is still ace

Ok, got mad about anti antifa talking points

The literal name fascist means "kill em before to get too many" that's what the name means

Therefore, you shouldn't wait until there's too many fascists, and more importantly, it was the fascists who told you to

complaining about the glut of superhero movies is fine but stop pretending big budget mainstream Hollywood of 20 or 30 years ago was full of groundbreaking original storytelling rather than mostly being white guys shooting lots of people

CyberGawker is back.

I just got off the phone with the COO of that "Time AI" company and he didn't say much about the lawsuit filed against Black Hat today. But he did add that the product presents an "exciting opportunity" for security!

@jack_daniel @0x7eff @JoelEsler @find_evil There are now many events or parts of events that we KNOW are bad, or even dangerous or concerning to some people. And stuff like this should concern more bc no whistle blowers get to litigate, but bullies do. I see it in schools. We can stop it by removing our support.

I am more and more convinced that VC money is killing all industries

Gawker Media’s decision to unionize ripples far. It inspired my colleagues and I to organize a union at HuffPost.

I hope what ⁦@megreenwell⁩ wrote here resounds as loudly for the media business-side executives who desperately need to hear it.

I want everyone to be as lucky as me and graduate debt free

I also want this generation to have access to a debt free life

So far it looks like Fedilab is terrrrrrrible at notifications😥
Would you be able to find out the missing Friendica API endpoint that Fedilab is expectedly hitting for fresh notifications?

@Hypolite Petovan
I'll look tonight if I get a chance, but the notifications pane is populated

First productive night in a while

Submitted speaker bio and photo
Got SSL working on my secondary websites in order to make some people happy
Added tooling to make my Cyberpunk chargen able to make links between existing characters (which is next step)

Ug this photo is even good in black and white!


I think the worst parts is the rejection of parody in Steampunk

Steampunk went from "Victorian England is horrible, and technology only makes that worse" to "aren't gears cool" in a way that gets challenged a lot less than Cyberpunk
2019-08-23 21:00:44
This also openly challenges all the douchebags who love cyberpunk but refuse to acknowledge that it's political and at it's core anti-capitalist.

Oh! hey! LE is failing on a domain because it doesn't have SSL setup. LetsEncrypt was the real mistake, making a bad hack ontop of the CA system is not the solution to a broken CA system
LetsEncrypt is a terrible hack that barely works
But it got people to shut up about how Certificate Authorities are bad and hacky and cause more problem than they solve and are rent seeking on the internet

Why do you think I don't use https on my main website, since I fundamentally think most certs are immoral and hurt the internet

Oh come the hell on

RIP my mentions. Does anyone have a copy of the Blackhat "Exhibitor Services Manual"?






For the first time in years I feel like I am ahead of my players in where the hell things are going in my Spelljammer game

I don't know what they are gonna do once they hit open space again, but what the players are going to do sounds like not my problem

I really need to fork Fedilab to remove the word "toot"

I have a baby and it's the best

In case I haven't said that enough recently

Yeah, but mainly why does every show have to have the same episodes in the same order just slightly flavoured to the cast
2019-08-23 18:50:19
why is the most recently good TV from the 90s where characters were allowed to be happy for a second or maybe (shock) even 2?? Why does TV now have to feature characters more emo than anything ever should be 😭
I meant why they're all gloomy, not why they're all formulaic.
OOOOH ok - that's reasonable.

Ok, trying Fedilab, so far it has been a great tool for Friendica, I need to see how it manages notifications, but I am excited to try to use this as my daily social driver

This is your reminder-- my daughter #RealityWinner sits in prison still for blowing the whistle on Russian election hacking in 2016.
With all the crazy news out there, I didn't want you to forget.


How most modern meetings end now:

“Alright we’re getting kicked out of this room...”

This is why I make a new email for every org
So...while at Black Hat...was them scanning your badge a way for them to get your EMAIL?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!

In 1998, a 13-year-old and an 11-year-old started a shooting at Westside Middle School by pulling the fire alarm and waiting in the woods for students and teachers to come outside. 5 dead, 10 wounded.

This new design is not security, it is theater. Security requires gun control.

I got accepted to give a talk at a conference

It means I need to actually talk about security
Just talk about the Intel ME and AMD PSP consumer and enterprise market domination, single point failure vulnerability, and then kindly say "and that's how all your api security stack are belong to us....i mean ME"
then mic drop and walk away.
Nah, it's about being a boring blue teamer and how to think about threat models
