Hello cybre.space, time for #introductions! :)
I'm a networking geek and researcher living in Berlin, currently working on a PhD in Computer Science. On a technical level, I like access networks such as WiFi and mobile networks, I like measurement and understanding performance, and I do low-level user-space programming in C. I sometimes talk about science, free software, and tech communities, among other things.
Today at #RIPE77, there was a talk on "How to run out of #IPv6 addresses".
I like how the presenter called out the "Alpha Male Behavior" to always demand more than your peers got, no matter your actual requirements.
As usual on the Internet, this is as much about people as it is about technology :)
"Presenting in ~1 hours at #RIPE77 about Internet architecture, innovation, and human rights.
Am presenting an academic paper in progress so comments, suggestions, and outright critique is more than welcome!"
Niels is doing super strong work advocating for implementing human rights considerations in internet standards that would basically make spec for setting (or unsetting) routing policies for autonomous networks based on human rights considerations
Today I am presenting some of our work on BGP communities at #ripe77 - and you can watch the stream! Also there is a bunch of other interesting talks: https://ripe77.ripe.net/programme/meeting-plan/plenary/#tues2
"This is Bi Club. You can't go in unless you can prove you're Bi."
"I don't really know how I can prove that. In fact I sometimes wonder if I'm Bi enough to use that word."
"In you go, Bi friend. Welcome to Bi Club."
Berlin: Anyone wants to go to Radical Networks conference next weekend but can't afford the ticket?
Apparently I'm allowed to register a guest.
Does anybody know if there's good resources (from zines, longreads, to scientific papers) conceptualizing system administration from a marxist-feminist point of view? I have had a gut feeling for years that the production/reproduction distinction w/ everything that comes along with that (invisible labor, entitled attitudes by those in "production", ...) could be a suitable framework for analyzing the (social) problems we face in our workplaces, but don't have the resources to develop a theory on that on my own...
boosts appreciated :)

Computers could last forever if we wanted them to. There's hardly any technological hurdles to jump there. There's only capitalism, insisting that we have More Better devices all the time, and carefully engineering an in-or-out software ecosystem that constantly gets less efficient just to make sure that old devices stop being useful.
I hate it so much.
That voice that's telling you that you didn't do enough today is capitalism and it's lying.

At last, some tools to stop working for free for Google and contribute to the commons while reducing spam!
I'm currently writing a paper on web measurement and evaluation.
For example: When loading a web page, how many resources does it have? How big are those resources?
Sounds rather basic, doesn't it? It really isn't.
I'm trying to measure the same thing in different ways, and I almost never get the same result.
I'm going to speak at All Systems Go later today, about the future of #networking APIs!
Talks will be streamed and recorded, see http://streaming.media.ccc.de/asg2018
When I have a technical problem, I don't usually ask for help online, or at all.
Today I dared to not only ask several people via multiple channels, but asked the actual developers of the software.
I should try that more often, it was pretty helpful. I haven't solved my problem yet, but I got further.
finally do I have the proper way of looking at the fediverse
also yes it's fully functional and I'm actually using it as my main interface right now
Reg Edit has seen some stuff.
He stares past his coffee into the thousand-fold permutations of GUID Space.
"When an application is no longer a benefit..." he begins.
It is an hour before he speaks again.
"They call it Uninstallation."
His voice is barely a whisper now, barely a drop in the endless neon acid rain.
"But sometimes. Sometimes they won't just uninstall quietly."
On the eternal sunset skyline, a blimp crashes in flames above a pyramid.
"And that's where I come in."
