It's been a historic week in the fight against face surveillance:

Brookline, MA, San Diego, CA, and Seattle, WA each took steps to limit local use of face surveillance.

On Tuesday, Sea-Tac airport halted plans to implement face recognition: usnews.com/news/best-states/wa

Setting up my first jail. Good news is it seems to be working. Bad news is I spent a bunch of time futzing around with networking before trying - iocage.readthedocs.io/en/lates

School surveillance technology is often implemented without any notification or input from parents. It's unclear where and how students are tracked, with little to no information given to parents on the depth of the privacy invasion. theguardian.com/education/2019

Hm. The WordPress change email process seems backwards. The old email gets a message saying 'if this is ok, ignore this email' and the new address gets the verification link to click.

Updated my game a bit today, now you can pass in rule strings like B3/S23 to control it. github.com/bcl/sdl2-life

I'm trying out Fedora Silverblue in a VirtualBox VM (on an Ubuntu host). For some reason, after installing and creating a user, the keyboard doesn't work. Like when I reboot, I can't type my password to login. Anyone else have this problem?

Some cool collaboration/sync/privacy research by Kleppmann et al at Ink & Switch: inkandswitch.com/local-first.h . Nextcloud should have got at least an honorable mention ( nextcloud.com/ ).

Conflict-free Replicated Data Types (CRDTs) sound cool.

Many interesting links in there, including the library of congress recommended formats: loc.gov/preservation/resources
