"Back to the Future with RSS!" by Nicky Case ncase.me/rss/

RSS is still the best way to consume internet media IMO. Let's hear it for RSS.

People talk about "releasing" software, stop doing that!

Software raised in captivity cannot survive in the wild! Feral software is also a big threat to digital biodiversity. Do not release software.

if you were to run a hacker camp (like CCCamp / EMF style thing) what would you name it?

also the camp would happen to potentially be on a mountain and words related to "sun" (or sonne in DE) would fit, this is obviously purely hypothetical and you're allowed to suggest whatever

just a random question, haha nothing being planned here haha i swear 👀

How have I never clicked that the primary colours of the Berlin flag are red and black?

Can you please stop sharing this New York Times article about how Apple “largely ceded control to the Chinese government”… Tim Cook doesn’t like it because it undermines their assurances about their new plans to violate your privacy on your own device.

looking for tech job, boosts welcome 

I have previously posted this as follower-only but imma post it public so it can be boosted, hoping I can get some help.

I am turning 18 on Feb 28 and I have a year to find a job for the next summer holidays.

The thing is that I am still in school but my dad wants to get me a job for the next summer holidays which is uh, probably some very manual job like doing grape fields for a champagne producing company.

I have a year to find a job and I would like to find a job that is likely tech related like software developer, system administration or repair service.

I am French and I have no diploma as I am still in school.
Literally any job will suffice as long as I have some sort of income.

Is there any "diploma-less" job I could do?

Anti-Piracy Firm Asks Google to Block 127.0.0.1

("Tech-savvy people will immediately recognize that the anti-piracy company apparently found copyright-infringing content on its own server." Which is what 127.0.0.1 points to.)

…I’m seeing people say “just don’t use an iPhone.” It’s not that simple when everyday things like financial apps with two-factor authentication are locked into the two main platforms.

We need legislation to ensure critical services use open standards so you can use your Pinephone to buy lunch in the future.

It’s shocking how easily some folks jump to “just go live in a cave.” No, that’s not an acceptable alternative. We deserve to partake in modern life without sacrificing our human rights…

So we don't have to worry about in Germany, according to the , having data online in the open is fine, and if you say otherwise, you'll get sued!

In Germany researcher Lilith Wittmann found vulnerabilities in a campaignig app used by the CDU the largest conservative party. She reported them to the developers of the app.

Now she has received a letter by law enforcement informing her on an ongoing investigation in which she is named as defendant. The CDU has filed a criminal complaint. They think Lilith has hacked their app. This is the state of digitalisation in Germany. 🤦🤦‍♂️🤦‍♀️
