Saw a recording of an interview @the_gibson did? Can't find now, any have a link?

Camouflage from face detection.

"CV Dazzle explores how fashion can be used as camouflage from face-detection technology, the first step in automated face recognition."

Tech enthusiast: "I want smart lights, smart tv, everything, and connect them all to my digital assisstant!"

Tech worker: *looks wistfully into distance* "I should get a small place in a little town, with a garden, make my own furniture."

With news of the new Raspberry Pi 4, reminded of when the Pi first came out.

It was already hot and orders weren't even being taken yet, with such high demand wasn't expecting to get one this first round.

They went on sale while at work, so registered with work email.

The US distributor was Element 14. Loaded the page at the time to buy, and got one. Thought that was easy.

Then their sales rep emailed saying just ask if anything else is needed. That's when it was realized the work email was with [BIG ELECTRONICS CORP] and they must have prioritized the order.

Felt bad that somehow jumped the line, ended up setting up a sibling's kid with it to get hacking.

Your body is a temple.

Ancient, crumbling, harbouring an unspeakable horror.

tfw you're scrolling movies and find a stupid campy one that makes you chuckle because it's so bad it's good and decide you and your movie-watching friend gotta see it, only to then see a leading role is played by the person you got your dog from

Interested in learning about #hacking? A great place to get started is #ReverseEngineering.

I wrote a long tutorial about it: nora.codes/tutorial/an-intro-t

There's also the awesome MicroCorruption microcorruption.com/

Remember how Facebook said your 2FA phone number was for security then used it for advertising? And their VPN that actually spied on you?

Any way, they said their Libra crypto currency is handled by a different group and they won't access your financial data.

Like, there's a popular show where a huge corporation puts out their own crypto currency we know is bad. We know this won't be good.

Gibra (formerly known as "Gibcon... err...gibcoin") is changing it's format... it is not using blockchain.

It is purely trust based.

buyin is $10k, I will send you a picture of a Joey of my choosing.

Joeys all the way down.

Update Firefox as soon as possible (to 67.0.3), there's a 0-day going around: mozilla.org/en-US/security/adv

"Just use Signal" is not good advice if you don't know the person's threat model.

Someone close to Ed was in an abusive relationship where the guy had access to all accounts and logins. Sure Signal has end-to-end encryption, but that doesn't matter if you don't control your end.

So she used an app he had access to but would delete messages immediatly, and would use code words when needed to talk.

(She's good now, had to wait for certain things to line up, but when did she was out of there so fast. Knew to change all passwords immediately [Ed is such proud] and laughed because she saw him trying to access those accounts.)
