Lockbit 2.0 claims to have compromised Mandiant, via their leak site:


I sincerely doubt it, at least it being anything substantial. But we’ll know soon enough as I’d guess it highly unlikely Mandiant would pay to keep info from leaking.

PS: Lockbit has probably jumped head first into the blender with “FIND OUT” printed in bold letters on the side, but maybe that’s just me?


Been doing some reading on autism and dopamine, and it was both enlightening and uncomfortable. I’m starting to think my coffee addiction is self-medication.🤷🏻‍♂️

Does anybody on here have some good reading on this subject for a someone without a medical/biochemistry background?


CW: If you have an authentic… excuse me, I meant “autistic”… personality profile, you might be annoyed by some of the wording and suggested treatments in the article. I know I was.

it's 2030: you walk carefully to the latest black/trans lives matter protest, but you're not afraid of the AXON auto-taser 9000 because you're packing a surprise: portable EMP grenades which can take down an auto-taser 9000 within 50 yards



tough-love: abuse.

not the first time: it gets ignored.

emloyees: abuse victims, forced to stay because they have to finance unavoidable fixed costs and can’t just vote who gets in power.


Security issues are a cost, albeit sometimes hidden or hard to measure. A security issue in anything proprietary is created by vendors. You might reasonably think the vendor would incur (most of) the security issue cost, and you would be wrong.

Vendors are one-trick ponies when it comes to profit margins: they externalise cost. So discovering, reporting, confirming, disclosing, scoping, patching & verifying security issues, as well as collateral costs (downtime etc)? That’s on us.
Happy Friday!

I rarely am amazed by men singers these days, however, Sam Fender gives me goosebumps. And this, in my opinion, is his zenith: youtu.be/o5p8dGHELOc


Web3 is going just great...

...and is definitely not an enormous grift that's pouring lighter fluid on our already-smoldering planet.

If you cannot criticise the West without glorifying Russia and China, there’s something very very wrong with you.


Ah, institutioneel racisme is toch geen “sociologisch jargon”. En goed dat begrepen wordt dat “onbewust” geen excuus is. Zouden we allemaal vaker mogen horen.


“For as long as Tayyip Erdogan is the head of the Republic of Turkey, we definitely cannot say ‘yes’ to countries which support terrorism entering NATO”


Well it seems like there’s a very easy solution to that problem… 🤔

Also, what kind of dickhead speaks about himself in the third person? Oh yes, that kind.

Eurovision support for Ukraine not just symbolic; will literally save Ukrainian lives as Kalush Orchestra auctions trophy for $900,000.

“The funds raised will be used to purchase for the armed forces the PD-2 unmanned aerial system, which includes three aircraft and a ground control station, Prytula said at the auction.”

As someone who had the misfortune of spending years in toxic work environments, I always hated the idea of "lean in." The message instructs victims of patriarchy and white supremacy that their outcome will be more favorable if they acquiesce and expose themselves to even more risk of mistreatment, rather than empowering them to stand up for their rights and demand equal treatment. I'd rather be shown the the water is now safe, instead of being told to jump in with the sharks.

Study (N=2280) finds no gender diffs in initial risk taking. But men reported more positive consequences than women. Women aren't risk adverse. They avoid risks when the risk-taking may lead to less rewarding consequences.

Sleepless in summer? Blame #ClimateChange

As extreme temperature events increase in frequency, duration and magnitude, the human body, which is fairly adaptive when it comes to #thermoregulation, may finally be experiencing the impact of #climate change. The #WHO has already warned that exposure to excessive #heat has “wide-ranging physiological impacts for all humans, often amplifying existing conditions and resulting in premature death and disability.”
