Contrary to their documentation, Keybase does not ask for the consent of the admins of a Mastodon-software instance before adding our instance as a "partner".
Since they are liars, I am blocking the endpoint they use to confirm our users. (/.well-known/keybase-proof-config)
We are also *extremely* concerned about their "What's Next", and do not consent to these tech-bro experiments.
Let me tell you something, townies and listeners.
I'm here on HT because this community has it going on. Cool folks, cool projects, cool ideas. Yeah, a lot of us love a good fire, particularly if it's flying a megacorp flag. But I want to see what you're building, from physical to philosophical. The weirder the better.
There is a lot to burn down these days. And burn it we shall. But at the end, when we're sitting in the ashes, successful beyond our dreams, what the fuck then? If we don't already have a culture of creation, then there will be nothing left.
So build some stuff. Dream some new dreams. Post that shit up here. And if the haters come, well, I did promise you something to burn.

I don't know if it has been mentioned, yet, but the original intention of The Matrix was not battery power, but using humans for computing power. The forces that be apparently thought audiences wouldn't get that so they made them change it. I figure the #WeAreNameless watch party might like that info.
Neo's Jacob's ladder
Some personal information can be seen on Thomas Anderson's "criminal record":
The last update to the file was July 22, 1998 Neo's date of birth is "March 11, 1962" Neo's place of birth is "Lower Downtown, Capital City" Neo's mother's maiden name is "Michelle McGahey" Neo's father's name is "John Anderson" Neo attended "Central West Junior High" and "Owen Paterson High" (named after the film's Production Designer).
A few seconds later, a photocopy of his passport can be seen. There the place of his birth is CAPITAL CITY USA, his date of birth is the 13th of September 1971, the passport was issued on the 12th of September 1991 and will expire on the 11th of September 2001.
And here we go!
That familiar green typography effect for which hackers are probably most known for/associated with. I'm not sure if it wasn't The Matrix that made THAT into more of... Well, that. You know?
Sure, we already had it in previous cult movies, but this one was really mainstream and hyped af!
I think it contributed greatly for what we see today in news pieces about hackers. The hoodie, the green...
Break through the firewalls!
