The moon is...

re that last toot: If you're curious what I've been up to for the last two years broadly but the last six weeks specifically.

For the better part of two years, my colleagues and I have been fighting for vital protections that have been the standard in journalism for a century. Yet, management at several companies have worked to undermine those protections.
I'm proud to say that yesterday, we secured Just Cause for my colleagues at the Ziff Davis Creators Guild. We were the last shop to secure this protection.

Donald Trump’s Twitter password is “maga2020!”, and there’s no 2FA, claims hacker.

You don't need an IQ of 197 to know that's pretty dumb...

Of course, the iOS app also works with our hosted #WriteFreely service, Write.as. So if you've been waiting to log in to your account on iOS, now you can at last!

Here's how to do that: howto.write.as/using-the-write

(We unfortunately don't have a way to migrate anonymous posts from our Write.as v1.0 iOS app today, but we hope to in the future!)

Ah, I love the user friendly experience of open-source software, requiring over an hour of research to make the menu fonts slightly larger.

After a long summer of work, our #WriteFreely iOS app is dropping today! Keep an eye out for our announcement soon.

So here's my business email workflow:
1. Open mail dot google dot com
2. Delete anything obviously worthless
3. Read anything useful
4. If something requires me to take an action beyond reading, open in a new tab.

This is fine except me corporate Google account requires me to re-authenticate very often. Which closes all my tabs and loses all the tasks I needed to do.

Today I finally got pissed off enough to download an email client in the year of our lord 2020.

Reminder that FedEx "SmartPost" and UPS "Mail Innovations" are private companies using the ubiquitous delivery of the United States Post Office for handling their last-mile deliveries.

In other words, it's not cost-effective enough for them to send a truck to deliver your package so their "Smart" and "Innovative" way of handling this is to make it the post office's problem.

Whenever someone says that the Post Office isn't efficient please remind them of these "Smart" "Innovations"

Looking for a good image-picking library to use in #Pixelcat
The one currently in use looks pretty, but does not work on all devices and is unmaintained (still not on AndroidX)
Anyone got any recommendations?

Imagine getting freed from the matrix at a young age and then being stuck with whatever shitty hacker name you came up with when you were 13.
