Computers are not just for oppressing people. You can do other things with them too.

Firefox was the light alternative to Mozilla. Now Seamonkey is the lightweight one.

Software bloat is an issue.

Blockchain study finds 0.00% success rate and vendors don't call back when asked for evidence

“Though Blockchain has been touted as the answer to everything, a study of 43 solutions advanced in the international development sector has found exactly no evidence of success.”

Man, it seems so bad you’d almost think I’d have a slide warning people about blockchain oil salesmen (they’re almost entirely men) in my talks or something…

Make the world the cyber-occult utopia we deserve.

Big lift on hackers.town lately...

Server upgrades, emojo wars, new users...

We are on a roll folks.

Though we are not here for these reasons.

We have a mission.

We are here to touch the minds of the world, change where, and what our world is.

To restore the future state that was stolen from us all.

We have the capacity for utopia, yet we were delivered into the arms of the dystopian system we we re warned about.

The world doesn't have to be what these men of steel tell you it must be.

Unshackle your mind and rethink who and where you are.

The veil is thin, the visualization is strong.

Envision your will a digital blade, and use it to cut away the fat of the digital era.

Arm your endpoint, arm your mind, arm yourself.

Retrieve the snapshot.

Restore the future.

I love that we are bootstrapping a new world together... and rejecting the always up paradigm for "good enough".

Good enough is WAY more fun.

"Technology’s Broken Promises: Startups, Capitalism, and the Destructive Force of a Culturally Bankrupt Industry"

Wow, Reuters, 1984 was meant to be a warning, not an instruction manual, you absolute muppets.

#SurveillanceCapitalism

This explanation of "Why #QUIC and not a new transport protocol at the same level as #TCP and #UDP" is sad and reflects the fact that we can't have nice things.

I don't say a place got "socially engineered"

That phrasing, while clinical and professional, hides some of the simplicity of what happened.

I say an attacker "called up and asked nicely"

"The company was breached after a hacker socially engineered a support rep" vs "The company was breached after a support rep gave passwords to someone who called up and asked nicely"

Theory: If you have a failed/ing battery on your MacBook Pro the OS won’t tell you. Obviously the OS knows, there are tons of sensors in these batteries, but Apple doesn’t want to tell the user the battery is bad because it’s not supposed to be user serviceable. So instead it just lets the machine degrade and randomly crash to force the user to bring it in. Unless you are like me and take your laptop apart because you think the SSD is failing only to find a battery balloon.
