Every time I see an interesting job posting from @EFF@twitter.com I'm annoyed when I'm reminded that an internet-based non-profit focused on digital rights and holding tech companies accountable only has jobs on-site in San Francisco, home of tech hyperinflation.

For folks who don't know: RT and In The Now are actual propaganda designed to be consumable and attractive to progressive Western audiences. They are a facet of the overall propaganda structure that includes Russia Today's internal (within Russia, in Russian) propaganda. Russia Today is much more directly anti-queer, anti-Semitic, etc, and RT filters this into a package DESIGNED to be palatable to English-speaking westerners, with the goal of spreading "just asking questions" style disinfo.

Every animal species has sent ambassadors from their home planets to observe, monitor, and ultimately decide if humans deserve to exist. It takes a unanimous vote to wipe out humanity. Based on how we’ve treated Earth and the other animals, all have voted for extinction. All except for dogs.

Thinking about starting a band. All i need is a drummer, a bassist, someone to play guitar, someone to play the keyboard, someone to do back up vocals, a lead singer, a songwriter, someone to book shows, someone who knows about sound engineering, someone with a van, and someone to design tee shirts. Could be kinda cool

This feels a bit like celebrating the absolute bare minimum by saying well done for not showing me your dick and yet somehow I am impressed

Privacy is not a science, it is a human right

ar.al/2019/02/14/privacy-is-no

My response to a dangerous turd of an article by Bart van der Sloot (co-founder of Amsterdam Privacy Week – sponsored by Palantir and Google – and docent teaching “Privacy and Big Data” at Tilburg University)

Mr. Sloot attempts to reframe privacy as a “science” and shame those who work to protect it for having a “pro-privacy agenda” & not being “neutral”. He also calls for “new rules” to disallow such biased behaviour.

The year is 2054. 99% of all web traffic is bots. There is literally one guy that isn't homeless, and he's still trying to optimize his hedge fund

No matter what email service you use, if you have an important email that you don't want to lose, back it up locally in your computer or print it out.

"Gearing up for possibility of another Trump shutdown, airport workers ready mass protests in 80 major cities"

nationofchange.org/2019/02/11/

Shut every airport, school, garbage collection facility down with strikes. The airport shutdowns in particular disproportionately hurt the rich fuckers who can afford to be flying from conference to golf course to champagne toast to skiing in the Swiss Alps every other day.
