@Gargron Advertising is poison everywhere. Advertising is encroaching on our personal and shared spaces every day, always seeking to turn friendship and trust into manipulation and lies.

I will not post a corporate hashtag, I will not share a corporate post for any kind of reward, I will not even wear clothes with a prominent brand.

Because what you are giving up when you do this is precious and irreplaceable.

I'm afraid that #solarpunk is too western, white and focused on fiction to make a change. People prefer fetishizing #burningman aesthetics to noticing the real changemakers around the world.

Have you heard about globalinnovationgathering.org ? Its a network of hackers from Africa, Middle East, South America and Southeast Asia. They do things some solarpunk writers only imagine, but there is little interest in that in the West.

Why not start #SolarpunkReporting ?

Vulnerabilities in some SSDs allow attackers to bypass the disk encryption feature and access the local data without knowing the user-chosen disk encryption password:

– only SSDs with hardware-based encryption are affected (self-encrypting drives (SEDs))
– modes affected: ATA security and TCG Opal

Guardian called Tim Berners Lee the "founder of the internet". 🤦‍♂️

1. The internet isn't an establishment to be founded. One doesn't found the electricity grid for example.
2. Tim Berners Lee invented the World Wide Web, not the internet. Lookup Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn who invented TCP/IP. Though that's more important, it doesn't qualify as inventing the entire internet either.
