This is the single greatest triumph of technology over itself, boost if you agree.

My two (enormous) stories about how companies turn you and your data into cash, and how to stop them, are both out today! You can read them for free!

Happy that I was able to work in shout-outs to and @pixelfed

My planning goes like this:

1. Go through the entire schedule, faving sessions that sound interesting
2. Open faved schedules for each time block and pick one to reserve a seat for
3. Realize that for one 1hr block I have faved 15 sessions
4. Weep

I did a doubletake at this one. I feel ancient.

I fully expect a session to be led by the dancing Intel cleansuit engineers.

That last boost: I can confirm that YubiKey is awesome.

I was wrong, and I'm sorry!
A few weeks ago I bought a YubiKey, and I reported that I was underwhelmed.
Then...
Yesterday my Android phone died.
I used my YubiKey to EASILY set up my new phone's Google account.
Buy. A. YubiKey.
No. Buy two, like I did: a primary and a backup.
YubiKey is AWESOME!

Stand in the middle of the street, chest out, feet apart, and lean back as far you can while still remaining upright. You are now a thought leader.

Some of these session descriptions sound like they were spit out by a Markov bot.

Child prodigies are frequent installations at bluegrass festivals and also I guess.

I lived in NYC when Bloomberg was in power and Ray Kelly was his police chief.

I don't give a shit if Bloomberg calls himself a liberal or believes he isn't racist because his policies endangered *millions* of Black and Brown people for years and made our neighborhoods a police state under the guise of 'safety'.

Fuck that dude and every single word that comes out of his bitch ass mouth.

Every day has a good chance of involving me laying face down on the ground.

I'm mostly just pissed because I want to go but I'll be flying to California instead

Earlier tonight, I posted a link to a site that is scoring mastodon sites based on their threat score. Using things like violence, socialism, and polygamy as data points to score instances.

I removed the link, because they are a known entity that we can use for Projekt:ONI.

Let me take a moment to describe Projekt:ONI.

We are working on a detection and response system to detect listeners on the fediverse. It is in it’s very early stages... but essentially we will be compiling statistics in order to find targets that are likely surveillance operations, and then alerting the fediverse.

Think of it as an AI/ML system to keep snoops out of our shit.

You’re welcome.

I accidentally switched to smol text but it totally captures how I feel about this.
