As a programmer it's been really hard to wean myself off of thinking in terms of global solutions. This, in comparison to building local or community technology.
Thinking this way can make things harder (now your tech needs need to scale to the world) and not useful (different people in different places have different needs).
This kind of blew my mind: like, you can just go and build a piece of tech and only give it to your friends & the immediate people it's helpful for. You don't *need* to design for The World. I think this kind of thinking is really important for breaking away from capitalistic modes of thinking.
this is hilarious:
"Earlier this month, KrebsOnSecurity received an email from a researcher who said he got a .gov domain simply by filling out and emailing an online form, grabbing some letterhead off the homepage of a small U.S. town that only has a “.us” domain name, and impersonating the town’s mayor in the application."
The NFC tags seemed to be of interest, so I called the place I bought them from and bought a few more. open to suggestions for what to do with them, either next year at #defcon or something else ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Good meetup tonight, @remotenemesis @vito @finn @blodeuwedd @logomancer @lordbowlich @mrsthegibson and a few more from offinstace were there(I hope you’ll let me know... I’d Love to follow you back if I don’t already, but I couldn’t make out your names in the noise of the casino)
I love meeting fediverse peeps, and what better place than here, what better time than now?

Trying a more tech-focused account. Will likely just be content from /r/linuxmemes.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
