A reminder that Amazon Web Services is on *extremely* good terms with the CIA; $600 million worth of good terms.
But I'm sure the world's cloud data is extremely safe with a Trump appointee now running this agency.

I'd spell my fears out in full and say "yes, I *am* actually afraid that a loose alliance of misogynist billionaires, black-ops torturers, literal Knights Templars, literal Nazis, literal Klansmen and the Russian Mob will have read access to all the corporate computer data in the world and might use this to ruthlessly enforce terrible policies"
And put like that it does seem a bit silly and overwrought.
@jankoekepan You just don't DO on-premises servers and even on-premises security analysis consoles. It's all cloud, cloud, cloud.
Security is MUCH better done in another country, by a large corporation.
That way you know it's secure, see.
In fact we should probably be MORE suspicious of all OUR employees, because they're not Cloud.
@jankoekepan The vendor was selling a cloud-based antivirus solution, which sends telemetry from every workstation of every running process and every opened file up to The Cloud (in another country), where Big Data Algorithms would do unspecified correlation-y things with all other users' data to detect if there were ongoing security threats.
All the people in the room were security engineers.
They pitied my naive distrust of The Cloud.
You just don't NOT do The Cloud, even in security.
But very few things scare me quite as much, bone-deep, as the average IT person's implicit trust in the pure-hearted goodness of Large Corporations.
The bigger the corporation, the more the trust.

“Police have started removing homeless people’s sleeping bags in Windsor”
“Rough sleepers in Windsor have had their sleeping bags and belongings cleared away by police ahead of the royal wedding.”
“In the video, obtained by MailOnline, a woman clutching a blue sleeping bag is seen talking to police before moving away still holding on to her belongings.”
The Royals have billions in combined wealth
tired: easy but accurate criticisms of dumb but widespread takes are bad because you get sealioned by people who missed the point
wired: easy but accurate criticisms of dumb but widespread takes are good because, with very little effort, you get a list of people who can safely be muted without worrying about missing out on intelligent conversation

"its algorithm will mute certain users so their tweets fall behind a “see more replies” link and their content will no longer be searchable. Del Harvey, vice president of trust and safety at Twitter, said to Slate that the primary factors will be how many complaints, blocks, and mutes an account receives"
nope, no way that will be weaponized against women, POC, queer folx....
