I don't know if this form of regulation is a good idea or not but I do think that it is inevitable in the long run.
The more society finds out about bullshit or obviously evil practices in tech, the less effective tech's mantra of 'regulation would make things worse' is going to be. At some point people are going to say: 'no, it can't be worse, you need to be regulated on every level, from employee certification up to market share and corporate ownership.'

Before I had a networking course at university, I had a rough understanding of IPv4/v6, but had trouble understanding why some things need to be in the same subnet.
Then I read IPv6 RFC. Not only have I found IPv6 to be a lot less messy and easier to understand, but it also allowed me to understand how IPv4 works by combining the idealized model of v6 with the messy hacks I knew v4 has.
So IMO learning v6 before v4 is a good idea. But N=1, your mileage may vary.
Decided I should check out my assumption that a disabled presinstalled Facebook app couldnt get my data
Have a very cheap Acatel Android I got new a year ago
Deleted the Facebook app when I got it
Looking at android settings, apps & selecting 'show system' from the menu I found that there are 2 facebook system apps
One of them starts up at boot, connects to Facebook & transfers some data. It has storage permission (I had it off)
Time to learn Go.
My programming past includes PHP and JS (and C++ and C a long time ago). So it's time to have a better language in my tool belt.
Tickled by Elixir too, but that will be for another time.
People were asking if FaceBook's status was finally damaged for good.
There is an ad for the F8 Developer Conference on Birdsite right now, and the replies are ... rough.
Not a single positive one.
And when you click "show replies with offensive language" you get a whole lot more profanity directed at FB.
Whew! We just might be there folks.
@baldur Yup, this was something I learned on the Edge team. Chrome doesn't have bugs; only other browsers do. That's what happens when it's the primary browser everyone uses for devving and testing.
Learning about running untrusted JS:
- can't expose your other JS so use VM2
- but VM2 will probably leak and doesn't protect against while(true) so run in a container
- but then you read containers can't be trusted! Kernel exploits galore! For real security use full virtualization
- But KVM might have bugs too! The real way to go is bare metal.
- You're gonna airgap that, right?
