Pinned toot

New townies, new !

Just a fellow technomancer screaming into the void.

Posting about privacy, the dystopia of big tech and utopian small tech, cyberpunk, embedded/low-level stuff, retro computing, other arcane bits.

Restricting follow, will approve if you got an avi and some toots and don't seem like a total ghoul.

Tend to follow those that interact often enough, or are interesting, and aren't a firehose of toots.

Auto follow approval and follow back for townies.

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."

movie spoiler? about Cereal Killer (Matthew Lillard) 

The Matthew Lillard character in SLC Punk! that eventually goes to law school, becomes the board executive character in Halt and Catch Fire, then some how (even though younger?) uses the knowledge of networks he learned from early Internet startups he was a VC for to become leet in Hackers

We are excited about potential, and in the execution.

It is when it is done that we become complacent. The itch for the next, the new.

It is good to take in the accomplishment. But you know by then you're already looking to see what's over the horizon.

Another potential.

Hey hacker!

have a great night

kick some ass tomorrow 😁

man wants to visit hackerspace, a place to build and benefit the community

"No problem man, we just got these COVID safety procedures we're following."

man is upset that we want to protect our community and refuses to visit because of that


Looks like the camp of spoiled rich kids across the lake from Hacker Town Summer Camp are gonna try to beat us at summer sports, but I bet we got some hijinx in mind for them.

"Moguls, Deals And Patagonia Vests: A Look Inside 'Summer Camp For Billionaires'"

Recharged and refreshed, almost like it was a reset. A different perspective on this side.

And now the work begins.

"The Long-Term Support Initiative
(LTSI) goal is to create and maintain a stable Linux kernel tree that is supported
with relevant patches for about 2 to 3 years, which is the typical life of consumer
electronic products such as smartphones, game consoles, and TV sets."

That's... not a long lifespan for a product.

makes sense the local digital privacy group that only operated on Facebook is now defunct

looking into stuff someone posts pseudo-anonymously, looking into the content not them personally

end up finding out their personal info

anxiety that it could be found out they're total ghouls

the relief that they're actually cool

like, legit know nothing about osint, just like hacking, but routinely end up finding stuff

basically, a fuzzer in human form

Annie Lennox of Eurythmics with a Tandy 200, and Dave Stewart laying with his head on her lap.

the dots are there

all that's left are the connections

and pretty sure Blackwood was the father mob boss in Kick Ass? not certain on that one actually
