Oooh, Mr Bill Gates is acting all nice towards me, sending me information which is 100% legitimate (he says so).
Unfortunately he forgot to mention how I can reclaim the 5 million.
Note 1 - The wikipedia link is actually a link to wikipedia
Note 2 - I left the email addresses visible on purpose.
Note 3 - Nice to see the foundation uses a hotmail account. It means they trust their own products.

Bruce Schneier on Signal's crytptocurrency fuck up:
"I think this is an incredibly bad idea. It’s not just the bloating of what was a clean secure communications app. It’s not just that blockchain is just plain stupid. It’s not even that Signal is choosing to tie itself to a specific blockchain currency. It’s that adding a cryptocurrency to an end-to-end encrypted app muddies the morality of the product, and invites all sorts of government investigative and regulatory meddling: by the IRS, the SEC, FinCEN, and probably the FBI.
And I see no good reason to do this. Secure communications and secure transactions can be separate apps, even separate apps from the same organization. End-to-end encryption is already at risk. Signal is the best app we have out there. Combining it with a cryptocurrency means that the whole system dies if any part dies."

Microsoft Edge is now 3rd most popular browser. Firefox is 4th.
It makes me sad and angry that free software is losing this new cycle of the Browser Wars and I can't do much about it besides using Firefox and possibly making donations to Mozilla.
A switch has silently been flipped in millions of instances of Google Chrome: those browsers will begin sorting their users into groups based on behavior, then sharing group labels with third-party trackers and advertisers around the web. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2021/03/google-testing-its-controversial-new-ad-targeting-tech-millions-browsers-heres
