Should do an introduction.

Ummm...started career as a software engineer working for startups and Fortune 500 companies...last title on business card was architect...and then decided to switch to marketing...I know, I'll burn in hell...

I hate adtech.

"Data-driven" anything makes my skin crawl. So does financial engineering. Ugh.

Try to use open source whenever possible.

But she writes for that to happen, “the Republican Party’s attitude toward illegal immigrants themselves—toward all immigrants—should be sympathy and respect.”

Sorry, but if you have to teach sympathy & respect to Republicans, who failed them? Did all the Jesus pushers not listen on Sunday’s? Or did the Republican Party fail them?

Unfortunately that requires self-reflection. Who wants to do that? Let’s post more crap from Epoch Times on Facebook.

I enjoy reading Peggy Norman. She is kinda like a woke Republican. I say kinda because she gives the Republicans a pass on everything and thinks everything Democrats do is wrong. But she will sometimes point when Republicans are wrong. Her latest post is about how Republicans should welcome immigrants because their values align with Republicans, which I think is generally true....

Is their long term plan to ditch MacBooks? Eventually make a surface device that doesn’t suck? Get the combo of tablet and laptop right? Maybe the surface was too early. It didn’t have the hardware to do what it wanted to be.

Is there a XMPP server that can be self-hosted, dockerized, and run on a 512 MB ram VPS?

Einstein failing a math exam is a myth. He failed the entrance exam to Zurich Polytechnic because he did poorly on botany, zoology and language sections.

New #blogpost: “Misinformation about Permissions Policy and FLoC”.

Lots of people have been spreading the often-unnecessary advice to add a Permissions-Policy response header to their sites, and some have been going so far as to ask FLOSS maintainers to patch their software to make this the default.

If you read the actual proposals and W3C specs, you’ll find a different story.

Everybody: please calm down, take a deep breath, and read before you make such prescriptive advice.

FLoC is terrible, but telling everyone to add a magic “opt-out header” in every situation conveys a misunderstanding of everything you need to know about the opt-in/out process.

⚠️ I’ve confirmed with Google folks that the `<meta>` tag way of opting your website out of Google’s FLoC network does _not_ work. The HTTP header approaches for the different servers mentioned in ⁦@oedmarap@twitter.com⁩’s guide are currently the _only_ opt-out. paramdeo.com//blog/opting-your

First season of Amazon’s Lord of the Rings cost $464,200,000. 😲

Didn’t realize Tails was mainstream. It got mentioned on Law & Order: SVU.

Maybe it wouldn’t change that many minds, but we need to take this paragraph and present it in a visual way.

Privacy is too abstract for most people to wrap their heads around. Some kind of graphic would go a long way.

Why aren't phone numbers and email addresses treated like credit card numbers? Businesses are regulated in terms of how they can be used and stored.

Starting intermittent fasting again today. Tried it a couple years ago and it worked great. Then the pandemic hit.

When do we all move to citizen owned and controlled surveillance? If police can put up CCTVs all over, why can’t a neighborhood put up their own CCTVs to monitor the police?

Theoretically we should all be able to access the police installed devices but we all know the roadblocks there.

Changed phone carriers today. I remember when took a few hours. Now it’s almost instant.
