My job, property manager for a small apartment building, doesn't pay me, just threatens to evict me, is absolute bullshit, like I gotta go into some airbnb unit full of white antimaskers, one of who referred to me as a "lazy Indian," to see why their bathtub faucet doesn't turn off all the way.

But since I'm the property manager I get to do stuff like set up the free market, do weekly meal distributions, do the composting, and provide myself with a hub fall all my gardening efforts. Which covers my food needs, so I don't really /need/ an income except for electricity and Internet, which y'all pay for (emsenn.net/support/)

None of which I'd have time or allowance to do if this job were more "corporate," and paid me better...

...nor would I get paid enough to rent land to garden, compost on, and especially not enough to rent space right downtown for the Free Market.

The lesson is, money isn't always the route to the privileges you need to do the work you want,

Wer im Jahr 2020 die Datenschutzkonformität einer Software allein auf Papierlage beurteilt bzw. bewertet, der hat schlichtweg keinen Schimmer davon, wie "kreativ" und großzügig Unternehmen die DSGVO (in ihrem Sinne) auslegen.

The (probably mythical) infosec talent shortage has a real life parallel.

Security guard companies have to contend with clients wanting to lower their contract rates every year because "nothing happens so we don't need great security". Well, maybe nothing happened because of the security guard walking around flying the flag. It's almost impossible show value when all you have to show is a nothing.

This is why security guard companies are rabid about documentation. Find a gate unlocked? Document it. Do your hourly rounds and find nothing? Document it. Someome unusual working late? Document it. See something suspicious but nothing came of it? Document it. Come contract time, slap that massive tome of diligence on the desk and say "all this happened".

Infosec needs to adopt some of that mindset. Run perimeter detection and document every port scan, every failed login attempt, every deployed patch, every patch that wasn't deployed because it was out of scope, every vendor security advisory you read through, everything. That's the only way to demonstrate that stuff did happen and show the value of an infosec team or even a single infosec person depending on the org size.

Related: I stumbled across an OSSEC alert the other day that alerted me that a user had logged into a box for the first time. It was legit, so no problem, but that's a really interesting thing to alert on.

chronic illness, friendship, positive 

someone i’ve known for a few years recently told me, in the context of our friendship: “i am here for the long haul.”

i can’t think of anything i need to hear more from someone. but i couldn’t ever bring myself to acknowledge and articulate it.

i wonder if other folks particularly with chronic illnesses need to hear this from loved ones. it is SO meaningful. i didn’t know i needed to hear it as badly as i did.

"By contrast, one could argue that the people who rioted after George Floyd’s killing, including the handful of insurrectionary anarchists among them, apparently did so because that was the most effective thing they believed they could do to force a national reckoning with racist police murder."

"As Stockman herself admitted, so-called peaceful protests didn’t attract media attention, didn’t result in institutional changes, and didn’t compel the country to confront the racist brutality that characterizes Black experiences with police every day."

You all spend so much time bitching about Github or whichever of your weenie sites Microsoft took over. I thought you were supposed to be principled, pioneering, free software type people? Why do you use this trash platform then? Fucking abandon it.

@vidak well said. Seems like something that most "data scientists" and big data tech need to be reminded of more often

Meta, LuigiEsq, ableism being apparently acceptable #OnHere 

Hi, I'm the person who made the report to the dot social mod team about Luigi's ableism. Everyone talking shit about the #FediBlock post taking issue with "babybrained" and ignoring the "dents in their brain" part is completely showing how acceptable they think ableism is, because insulting people by saying that they have deformed brains is so blatantly ableist that it really should not have to be explained to y'all.
