Now that the discourse around #Facebook begins to implicitly accept that it's declining or collapsing, it's become a sure thing. To help accelerate the decline, remind your friends and family of the services that Facebook owns that they should avoid along with the social network: #Instagram, #Whatsapp.
Remind them that #Google are just a more powerful Facebook.
Before they migrate to a new silo, and a new master.. let them know something new is growing over here on the Fediverse.
@whonose123 Yeah, it just made Landfall as a Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone on the Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale which is equivelent to Category 1 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, Typhoon on the JMA Scale, Severe Cyclonic Storm on the Indian Scale, or Intense Tropical Cyclone on the Meteo France Scale for comparison of various Tropical Cyclone Scales.
This is the first named storm of the 2018-19 Australian Region Tropical Cyclone Season that was named in the region (Tropical Cyclone Bouchra was in the Australian Region but reached naming intensity within Meteo France La Reunion's Area of Responsibility before entering tde Australian Tropical Cyclone Basin)
So AKA is broken on 3g & 5g now ... https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/12/05/mobile_users_can_be_tracked_with_cheap_kit_aka_protocol/
Apple Store employees are prohibited from saying words like 'problem', 'bug', 'incompatible', and 'crash' https://apple.slashdot.org/story/18/12/08/1918204/apple-store-employees-arent-allowed-to-say-crash-bug-or-problem
Great show this week! It is possible to deliberately "confuse" search history across multiple engines with a simple plugin called "trackmenot" https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/trackmenot/ that simply creates search terms and constantly searches for weird and random stuff (you can block certain terms, thank goodness)
Google lost control of several million of its IP addresses for more than an hour on Monday, with traffic misdirected to China Telecom
@jerry Sounds good - like a modern philosophy that sells well. I loved it when Mr Durov (Telegram, VK) explained (in attractive words) the significance of having no things, properties, etc, to be a burden, to limit oneself, how "things you have will in the end have you" . Then it leaked out he has a very expensive property here, and one there, and spends lots of money just to prove he can. Things he said still *sound* good. I smile and think about them every time I mow my lawn :)
Facebook is the least trusted tech company, for handling personal data: http://fortune.com/2018/11/08/mark-zuckerberg-facebook-reputation/
I have been wondering: how quickly could a site like Facebook die? I think it could happen very quickly, if there were an alternative platform. Once the network effect shifts from Facebook to something else, it's basically Myspace city. The challenge is establishing that network effect somewhere else.
@HackerRadioShow BOO!!! Missed the show for the last month! - Good to see you on Mastodon, but I think the way you introduced it on the show would confuse some people.
Maybe explain how they can "sign up" and then follow you?
Walked around the place. Looking at the newly constructed cubical farms.
Seats freshly installed.
Plastic, boxes, styrofoam on the floor.
Found the hot ethernet jacks to the side and plugged in some more RPi dropboxes.
Folks just thought I was an installation tech.
Left the site and checked my listeners. The RPi’s had connected.
I had complete access to that location, of course.
But I also had internal access to the WAN. To the central corporate network in another city.
A flat network.
All of the servers had their IP addresses printed out on labels.
The security camera management console had each IP camera’s IP address on display.
Firewall appliances, vuln scanner appliances, security appliances, all labeled neatly.
Lot of little devices on the wall and in the racks plugged in.
I had a couple Raspberry Pi dropboxes in thise black official cases.
I took them out. Plugged them in. Left.
Whonose!! somewhere in Europe most of the time...
A Mastodon instance for info/cyber security-minded people.
