Huawei's CFO arrest marks something new.
I think we have entered a period of an infosec/IT Cold War in which private citizens and corporations are the assets involved.
Every nation's intelligence agencies are looking at our response to Kashoggi think "We can get away with that?"
Techfolk, you are in a war whether you want to be or not. Get your OPSEC in order... because they aren't going to help you.
You will be hung out to dry.
I've got some things to talk about.
"We shouldn't be making decisions on behalf of WordPress. We should be making them on behalf of the web."

Followed by the book, I'd have been kicked off Facebook countless times. But instead this'll just be justification for attacking marginalized people more directly.

I've done a bad job keeping up on the tweets during #WCUS but I have had a great time so far. Y'all are 💗💖💗

I leave for #WCUS with @email@example.com in a few hours. Looking forward to seeing everyone, not saying anything stupid, and not feeling emotionally drained afterward!
@josephdickson I do the same, and most of the time it responds to both of us for me. Every once in a while when I'm congested it will think that my responses are for him. It's frustrating that I can't verify who I am, or play on multiple devices.
Seeing lots of "people are flooding Mastodon from Tumblr" posts.
I'm not as informed of the breadth of Masto culture, but I do run an instance at http://tech.lgbt if you want a place to park your toots that's still kinda quiet.
NOTE TO NEW USERS:
Mastodon's a cool place, but it's private like a local coffee shop, not a home bathroom.
Remember that the admin of your instance can see EVERYTHING you post, including direct posts. They can even disable 2 factor authentication, if you have it enabled (and you should. No really, enable that stuff now.)
Bottom line: Find an instance where you feel you can trust your admin, and don't send direct toots unless you trust the admin at the recipient's instance as well.
@curtismchale and Imagify is always suggesting it to me 😂

This page describes the tech.lgbt instance - wondering what Mastodon is? Check out joinmastodon.org! In essence, Mastodon is a decentralized, open source social network. This instance is for tech workers, academics, students, and others interested in tech who are LGBTQA+ or Allies. Props to @firstname.lastname@example.org for the Mastodon art!
