Someone on Twitter mentioned in passing the idea of bringing back HomeCon, which was an online furry convention of sorts where things were streamed on Tigerdile.
I was laying in bed this morning, thinking that it'd be really nice to have that, so furries can be social in the absence of physical attendance to a convention.

And then cozycononline.com/ appeared! It's the spiritual successor to the old HomeCon, which is a great idea. This time, they chose to not limit it to streams on Tigerdile only, which makes it more accessible to more folks.

This idea makes me really happy. :)

LibrePlanet has been pulled off quite well as a virtual conference! Some technical issues seemingly by how much Internet it's using, but using (Kiwi)IRC, IceCast, Jitsi, & a "Hallway track" they've done a nice job recreating a similar experience.

The Mumble doesn't seem too active though.

Someone needs to combine pub songs (esp scottish and irish) with synths for some serious cyber vibes.

Today I learned that many/most color laser printers layer an array of yellow microdots on top of documents 🔬

This Machine Identification Code en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_ encodes a print date and a serial number unique to the machine. It only became public knowledge in 2004, ~20 year after deployment 😑

The Technical University of Dresden released a tool 2 years ago to layer on _even more dots_ to render the MIC unreadable and aid whistleblowers publishing github.com/dfd-tud/deda

Things Covid has proven:

1. The job you were told couldn't be done remotely can be done remotely

2. Many disabled workers could have been working from home, but corporations just didn't want them to.

3. Internet is a utility, not a luxury.

4. Universal healthcare is a necessity.
