@WPalant I really believe it's time for people to realise that #tech IS #politics. Same principles that apply to #democracy are applicable to #technology. The true long-term solution is education of the general public, not the easy way of blindly trusting centralized authorities promising to do slightly better.
In that sense I agree that Moxie really "doesn't get it". Mostly, he's just defending his design choices thru the lens of his confict of interest.
Who would want their washing machine to just do the laundry when you can spend time updating it via a smartphone app first??
Received 3rd dose today. We got to choose which #vaccine so we went with Spikevax (Moderna) this time for a change.
The vaccination site in #Prague Congress Centre was not organized well, though. There's a queue ticket system *before* the actual registration on a TV screen indoors and a crowd of people in a relatively small space waiting for their turn for about 20 minutes. Especially with #Omicron on the (steep) rise this felt quite risky.
Don't Look Up is a painfully brilliant time capsule of the current state of humankind. That’s what we should be sending on golden plaques into deep space... As a warning.
A bit like #Idiocracy but present-day, with a proper budget and less hyperbole.
There is lots of confusion about how someone got their hands on lots of #LastPass master passwords, and the official LastPass statement is certainly not helping. I analyzed the possible scenarios to find out what most likely happened here. #infosec
This is pretty amazing: "The Tree of Life" contains 2.2m species. Prepare for some mouse wheel action!

After multiple delays, #Maypole finally arrived today and it kinda sucks for now at least for the mostly multi-media use-cases I had in mind... It creates a hotspot, I connected to it and used the web interface to configure Maypole to use our home wifi. It reconnects to it after each boot.
But it seems to have stability issues, it's usable only for small singular files, there's no support for downloading folders, gets so hot I have trouble removing it from the USB port etc.
🇨🇿 in #Czech, elections
Babiš: Prezident mi v neděli řekl, že mě pověří sestavením vlády...
"The task for our organization is to really try to keep hold of the batteries, and probably get into a second or third lease cycle for the car and then reuse the batteries," Diess explained. "[...] we would like to keep every one of the batteries forever."
Holy shit. OpenInsulin successfully formulated a non-proprietary version of insulin and they are ready to scale production! 👀
