Pinned toot sometimes we are technical, sometimes we are goofy, sometimes we are fired up....

But all the time we want to extend a hand to help anyone who also treats others with love, and if not love, at least acceptance.

We never want to be the tech community that is full of mean people being dicks.

That is all.

Once there was a promising young technomancer who abandoned all of his principles and collected everyone's data. He told them it was safe with him, and in time they believed him.

Over time the technomancer realized he had amassed so much information that he became mightier than even the leaders of the world, but his greed and desire for wealth kept him from noticing.

He began to sell his influence to these leaders and got them hooked on his data.

They used it solve crimes, and they used it protect the endangered, and they used it to detect who would likely do crime, and they used it to keep the people divided, and they used it to topple one another's nations.

All the while making the no longer young technomancer even more powerful and wealthy.

The prophecy says that the Technomancer will try to destroy those who oppose him. But the agents of the wires will bring him to his knees by rebuilding what was lost.

They will from the void build new works powered by the willful.

They will control their data, not entrusting their cache with the wizards in their towers.

They will work together to restore the future to it's intended state.

They will win with numbers, resolve, their will, and mutual aid.

They will win because the cruelty of greed is not more powerful that the instinct to survive, nor the nature of freedom.

Shape the void.

Own the wires.

Restore the future.

Understand my words with full knowledge and reverence for my connection to the void.

My data is not yours to own.

You came here and asked to sell us things, then tracked us with the things you sold us.

You came here and begged for trust, which many gave you, then betrayed it by selling our secrets.

Then you took away our nation.

My data is not yours to own.

listening to @thegibson's podcast on purple squad security @JohnsNotHere and loving it :)

I do have to say, the ISSA conference yesterday was overall very good. Loveless was a great presenter as the Keynote....

Really good to see some old faces.

Lunch was excellent.

Asking to more experienced mastodon users: what are the main pros to run a local mastodon instance?

I'd like to focus, for a change, on something different than usual: people. Any good resources on #humint and #osint that is not just the usual soup of links and services that only work for USA redidents? I'm mostly interested in individuals rather than companies and networks.

Is Maltego still the state of the art or is there something better for more person-focused profilings?

Townies, The one and only @evilsocket has arrived in the fediverse.

Go give thanks, and ask him what Elkentaro's lab coat smells like.

In Hong Kong, a cyberpunk protester is using a custom-made "laser gun" while wearing a silver blanket, to reduce his IR signature and hide from thermal imaging equipment...

I'm that person that still uses Tripwire on my personal *nix servers. :D

Don't forget that something this simple can save your a**.

I *think* the Sony Xperia XZ is going to beat the Nexus 6p as long as it's funky USB port (it's mostly broken) plays nice.

Otherwise it'll be the 6p

The 6p just *barely* fits in the controller, no case style which is a bummer.

At least I have a good option for a Retro Arch setup.

This should be fun

This is possibly the largest number of people booked for sedition at one time in one district anywhere in India.

How did this slip below the radar?
