Worth reading if you've ever thought for a second that #Apple is a privacy-respecting company: https://sneak.berlin/20201112/your-computer-isnt-yours/
Es ist mal wieder so weit. Die Pappnasen und Clowns versuchen wieder staatliche Hintertüren in die Kommunikation bzw. Messenger zu installieren. Die übliche Reaktion nach einem Terrorangriff. Schlimm nur: Diesmal wird die scharfe Kritik offenbar ignoriert. Die Terroristen freuen sich - die tangiert das 1. nämlich nicht und 2. haben die dann ihr Ziel erreicht.
Dirt Poor: Have Fruits and Vegetables Become Less Nutritious?
Because of soil depletion, crops grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today
One of the original reasons I adopted Emacs (after evil-mode was created) was Org mode.
I use it for time tracking; agendas; note taking and organization; recording and graphing of data; preparing, rehearsing, and rendering slides for talks; cross-references to emails (Gnus integration); literate programming; my emacs config; project planning; Kanban; and much more.
Add .gpg to the file and have your notes automatically encrypted by Emacs.

TIL: There is a tool to obfuscate your typing-behavior to anonymize you a little more.
I just want to remind everyone that despite #Mozilla's increasing problems, we need to keep sticking with #Firefox for now because the alternative is full corporate control over the web. We keep Firefox alive until we can't, then fork it until we can't, then write our own browser until we can't. Failure to do any of the above means the web will march towards corporate shithole-dom. Then we either write a FOSS alternative for the web or make stuff like #Gemini into FOSS alternatives for the web.
We need to defeat this bizzare cognative dissonance people face when they have to re-evaluate the place email holds in their mind. It's not some useless relic of the last generation to cast off in the course of chasing the shiny new.
- Built with open standards
- Fault tolerant
- Enjoys a wide variety of open-source clients & servers
- Has widely available implementations for almost every programming language
- Already being used for software development at scales greater than GitHub-style development has ever dreamed of
Screw that noise. Set aside your preconceptions and look at email for what it is. The things that make you "yuck" about email are more related to the bastardization of email *software* by corporate interests like Google and Microsoft, and have next to nothing to do with email itself.
Car manufacturers are challenging traditional auto insurers: Who will win the tech race?
I don't understand why people are so fanatical about streaming every little piece of media they consume. Storage is dirt cheap. Audio files are small. Videos can be deleted after watching.
It's 2020. There's no reason to rely on heavy, JS-laden web pages or shitty mobile apps and ads every 2 seconds on both.
