I don't want to hear about how your computer hardware components are "military grade"

Because that means that the contract for them took 3 years to process, they have a 900% markup, and they barely do what they're supposed to.

The second episode of my podcast about self-naming is out! Many thanks to @Anarkat and @Jensiedactyl@twitter.com for speaking with me about their own naming stories.

Go to modern.technology/name/ to listen or read the transcript, or search for "Modern Technology Knows Your Name" in your podcast thing of choice.

If Amazon Ring wasn't already nightmarishly invasive already.

It knows all your secrets, all your fears, the best ways to blackmail you, to control you, to bribe you, to lie to you. To manipulate you.

Now you have one following you around:

I absolutely resent the fact that I have to pay for food to keep me alive.

Walking through a store's Halloween displays recently, I realized that despite being one of those gothy nerds who digs horror stories, makes costumes, and generally geeks out on Halloween season, this year I'm just not in the mood to pretend things are scarier than they are.

Things are objectively awful in the world, but at least there's still stuff like this mashup going on.

Thank God for Version Control.

I haven't touched this project for a week. Turns out, what's on my computer doesn't work anymore, I guess because around the time I quit working on it was when I started getting too turnt and passed out.

What's on the git repo might be a little out dated, but if not for the last time I committed, this entire project would be scraps of idk what the fuck

I had this great new innovative idea to make a picture of some pop-culture character but dressed up like some totally different pop-culture character, and sell t-shirts of it.

Dark Hackers sequel in which we find out that Dade has become the CISO of EvilCorp and has to be brought down by the next generation of hackers.

USpol, travel 

Friendly heads-up:

Expedited passport processing has been suspended as of 11 September 2020.

If you need to renew your passport you'll have to go to travel.state.gov and get onto the waiting list.

Does anyone maintain a list of marketplaces that are alternatives to the excessively greedy ones? Like, is there an Etsy-like that treats its artists/sellers better? What about a better t-shirt place than cafe press et al? And so on…

My new podcast about chosen names launched today! :flan_dance:​

modern.technology/name/

"Modern Technology Knows Your Name" starts off with my own naming stories (both of them) and goes on to feature stories contributed by other kind souls ready to throw in on this idea of mine. I'm very excited to see where this goes from here.

If you have a story you'd like to share about how you chose your own handle, screenname, nickname, or real-life name, get in touch!
