This one interaction basically sums up the entire election so far

The WhatsApp backdoor is now public and official. I have said this many times: there is no future for privacy or security tools that are centralized or proprietary. If you can't decentralize it some government will strongarm you for access.

Ok, seriously

One of the things I hate about Disney as a company is how everything they make, they make until it is loathed

Even if I could get invested in their Star Wars, I know that at some point in the future (after RoS I suspect) everyone will just be *over* it

Honestly, I am uncomfortable with using Amazon in my work life
Amazon provides almost no support, is more expensive than similar providers, doesn't handle communication well, abuses workers, and is trying to destroy the planet

Why do we use Amazon?

when you support workers rights but are in devops

Why would we fight for anything less than utopia?
Because you might actually achieve a realistic goal?
But most realistic goals hurt long-term

Or are stepping Stones toward utopia

It's almost like job hunting is designed for both sides to not get what they want

Thinking on how job hunting is sales. And if you’re top notch with sales skills you can sell even the shittiest stuff. Not to say one should do that, but if that’s true surely you can amp up your sales skills enough to sell your resume/services, even if you’re struggling now.

I’m starting to wonder if any of these companies were ever really worth “a billion dollars”, or it SoftBank has just been scamming us all for half a decade.

I cannot more strongly recommend this thread about the responsibility of drivers any stronger.

If you choose to drive a car, you’re making the worst possible transportation choice for everyone you encounter along the way, except for yourself. Act like it.

This tweet has strong baptist youth pastor energy


Warlock, Sorcerer, Barbarian, Druid Bard, and Rogue

Picking one: sorcerer

If you had to delete one #DnD class from ever existing in the game, which class would it be?
Barbarian. Full stop.
They are definitely just double fighter, but the lack of non-casters stays my hand there

I know the sex jokes are fun folks but please don’t fucking wear a live mic’d corporate robot in public. Please.
No friend of mine

Trees won’t hide the pipeline you bought.

me: “please create a user with uid 7365”
Ubuntu: “user created with uid 121”
me: “delete user with uid 121”
Ubuntu: “no user with uid 121”
me: “delete user with uid 7365”
Ubuntu: “no user with uid 7365”
me: “uid for user ‘arrigo’?”
Ubuntu: “uid is 131”

Before heading to the #ClimateStrikeCanada in Victoria, I’m in Ladysmith to announce our bold new action to defend our air, land & water.

We'll reject Trudeau’s plan to increase oil tanker traffic by 700% & instead create a $40 million Coastal Protection Fund. #elxn43

User research reports are like character backstories, because nobody reads them either.

The problem with Mastodon is that even if I end up filtering all Mastodon hosts out of my federation, their posts can still get through and people will police their badly implemented community guidelines at me and it will still make the federation worse to use

I don't like mastodon, pleroma is so much more better

I hope this baby doesn't start refusing the crib
This could get ugly

Ug, I have been using phones and my gaming computer since May mostly. And going back to a full sized keyboard and dwm makes me just... feel better

I can get so much more done
That's what I thought.

Inspired by this, I am going to write my conference talk longform in order to practice it

Imagine a world of infosec information that can be discovered, cross referenced, cited, searched.

Wouldn't that be a world worth living in?

@chadloder @SwiftOnSecurity Linux, the kernel, is trying to get better (the fight against OpenZFS not withstanding) but distributions leaving behind their *nix roots are making things worse -- and containers aren't magic.

This is the worst follow up I've ever gotten from a job application:
Apologies for the delay, I wanted to reach out to you. Our head of Infrastructure and our CTO are meeting to talk about your expertise and experience. We will be reaching out very soon about next steps.
You're a big deal, obvs.
There is a 0% chance that is the case
I hope

The plot of this episode is that the interview subject doesn't think Arabs have rights
Ep 47 is here. But shhhh. This is a secret story you weren't ever supposed to hear. Hmm. But that must mean something went terribly wrong for it to be here.

Remember when Doug Ford said no one will lose their jobs?
Remember when Jason Kenney said Grassroots Guaranteed?
Don’t trust conservative promises they will gut the crap out of public services in order to push for private...

Quote from @provisionalidea "...getting actors to pretend to steal and using that to train your data is the equivalent of training an image recognition on cartoon villains to identify bad guys." 🤣

Isn't Greta Thunberg's whole point that she is the wrong messanger and the idea that a child should be the one spokespersoning climate action hellishly stupid?

me: Hey you, sleep, eat, take care of your self
also me: fuck sleep!

I get the recursion joke going around, but arg
If you don't get recursion you have no business programming a computer

And, yeah I am trying to gatekeep all the shitty techbro "geniuses" I work with out of our industry
Do you trust ANYONE who would call themselves a programmer?
You are making an awfully irrefutable point here.

There was this one time, two PhDs visited my house for a few days, and during that visit, bought fancy tea, then one of them forgot their tea

And I have constantly not drunk that tea, because it's their's, not mine

Well, this dude now lives in France!
Then he'll understand.

The trouble with “move fast and break things” is that the people saying it never intend that *their* things get broken — they want to break *your* stuff, and the repair bill isn’t their problem.
