Normalize talking about how much you're paid with your co-workers.

It is the only way people will truly realize the income disparity between themselves and their just-as-qualified queer and/or BIPoC friends and colleagues.

This should be normal in ever industry. The fact it isn't is actively aiding executives in systemically discriminating against minority groups.

Bikeability 

@alva Berlin is weird for bikes, I can't use them because of my internal wrong side of the road brain, but in some areas it's great but others nothing. Also because the roads are so wide tonnes of people ride the wrong way on the bike paths.

Ich bin jedes Mal schockiert, wenn ich wieder darauf stoße, dass sich das Urheberrecht in der DDR nicht grundlegend von dem in Westdeutschland unterschied. Was für'n Sozialismus soll das denn bitte sein?

misinformation 

@grainloom I see your usage of the so called prefixes, and raise you an "allegedly"

@solene I must avoid that like the plague... Those kinds of games are very detrimental to my time lol

UK politics, cops 

@inmysocks the UK has been emulating the US for years. It's part of the reason Brexit was so appealing to the masses. Definitely a big part of the reason I fled to Europe!

mental health adjacent (mildly negative), sleeping issues 

@Olli_W_ ugh insomnia sucks. Sometimes the soundscape stuff with rain and thunder helps me, dunno if you've tried it?

T2 security chip on Macs can be hacked to plant malware; cannot be patched

9to5mac.com/2020/10/06/t2-secu

TL;DR: all recent macOS devices are no longer safe to use if left alone, even if you have them powered down.

- The root of trust on macOS is inherently broken
- They can bruteforce your FileVault2 volume password
- They can alter your macOS installation
- They can load arbitrary kernel extensions

Apropos of nothing really... The ducks are chasm in the glass room.
