I had forgotten exactly how privatized, for profit infrastructure and utility companies are de-incentivesed to make upgrades, fix security, or generally be good at what they do.

😒 I have been reminded 🤦‍♂️

I just find this hilarious because our team was having conversations about how these things would go over a year ago and someone won a bet 🤣​

DarkSide ransomware will now vet targets after pipeline cyberattack 

The DarkSide ransomware group, who shut down a major US oil pipeline, says they don't mean to cause any trouble, in a new statement.
According to BleepingComputer:
"Today, the DarkSide ransomware gang issued a press statement stating that their organization is 'apolitical' and is not associated with any government.
"We are apolitical, we do not participate in geopolitics, do not need to tie us with a defined government and look for other our motives. Our goal is to make money, and not creating problems for society. From today we introduce moderation and check each company that our partners want to encrypt to avoid social consequences in the future." - DarkSide gang.

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

Edit: not I2C, CSI-2, the camera ribbon input on a pi 😅📸

Tech: Tool to easily anonymise 

I'm looking for some easy user friendly tools to blur or obstruct peoples faces. I know Signal has this build in, but I'm looking for standalone tools, like apps or websites. It's for actions.

I absolutely agree that blockchains are not the solution for just about any woes, and the speculation, energy, and plethora of scams are terrible.

Do not use blockchain in your project, full stop.

But let folks have their happy moment and give advice to keep them moving upwards

This is the first time some of these (many young) folks have had access to a means to actually see a meaningful return on investment in their lives and the possibilities are giving people a cautious hope.

Turning $20 spent on a joke into $1000 is a life changing experience.

So, I want to pile on and throw shade on for some lols, but I can't. I'm looking at some comments and I remember one of the things I thought when I saw bitcoin take off in those very, very early days.
