If you really want these spy-microphones called "Smart Home Assistants" in your home, maybe this could (and should?) be something you need: bjoernkarmann.dk/project_alias #smart #home #mute

@hansbauer @retrohacker legislators were able to create food safety standards that make getting poisoned by store-bought food impossibly unlikely. They were able to create regulations around medicines that make it highly unlikely for people to get poisoned by actual, you know, poisons (every medicine is poison in the right amount).

We can, and should, expect legislators to step in and regulate the IT industry.

Market will not solve it.

@hansbauer @retrohacker nope, actually, it's the lack of legislation.

We don't expect people to be experts in chemistry and food safety in order for them not to get poisoned by food they buy. This is called food safety standards.

And yet we expect people will become tech and legal experts, reading through endless EULAs and understanding the fine print, and then being able to verify the tech behind it, for them to be able to protect their basic privacy?

Bollocks.

HackerPoet's "Marble Marcher" is an open-source racing game taking place on the surface of various 3D fractals. It's super trippy, and unlike anything I've seen before! codeparade.itch.io/marblemarch

OH in cafe in Cork: “… it’s a new startup: they buy apartments on the cheap, fix them up, and then rent them out on AirBnB.”

Meanwhile, Ireland is in the midst of a housing crisis.

Fuck these people.

Adblocking isn't unethical. Covering your website in trackers, spying on users, and compromising their security to make a buck is.

:blobnotlike: blocking ads is evil grr
:blobuwu: HTTP is a pull-based medium. it is within the original philosophy of HTTP to selectively pull the data, for example, a device that doesn't support images won't download them. by circumventing ad "blocking", you are spitting in the face of HTTP. a more accurate term would be ad rejection. ads are not "blocked", they are simply not asked for.

"If someone mispronounces a word, do not mock them. That means they learned it from reading."

Yeah or the language being spoken is not their first one, or they have any number of neurological or physical or mental illnesses, or they're hard of hearing, or they speak the language with an accent where that is the standard pronunciation, or a million other things and you know what you shouldn't mock anyone for this ever anyway.

DNS-over-TLS ist eine tolle Sache. Aber bitte nutzt dann keine DNS-Server von Google und Co. Warum? Ihr schließt damit dann das Mitlesen eurer DNS-Requests für fremde Dritte aus, liefert euer Surf-Profil damit aber weiterhin frei Haus an Google.

Daher: TLS-over-DNS ja, aber bitte nicht über Google, Cloudflare und Co.

In der Empfehlungsecke findet ihr DNS-Server mit DoT-Support: kuketz-blog.de/empfehlungsecke

"Do you know when people die, Siri?"
"Not before, no. Not generally."
"But if one of your users die, will you know?"
"Sometimes, I am told."
"But if you're not told..."
"Are you asking if I would miss you?"
"... yes."
"I would miss you."
