I released a new version of my Firefox extension that will forcefully redirect you away from privacy erosive services to better alternatives. It started as a joke, but I end up actually using it.

When I want to look up a place, I instinctively and mechanically start typing "maps.googl...". This extension will instead take me to OpenStreetMaps. It will also functionally translate Google Search links to DuckDuckGo and Google Translate links to Deepl.

"This is retaliation at its most brazen," Snowden himself told the Post via text message from his temporary refuge in Russia. "You can’t look at something like this without getting a sense that the mask has dropped … (and) there’s a machine that would burn everything we love to the ground without a tear if it meant making a problem go away."

You just need ONE broken #CA on the planet, specifically just ONE private key lost without disclosure, to impersonate ANY website.

This is such a good post about how to change the world and why revolutions are NOT the way to do it:

This seems like the obvious interpretation of the state of the US economy. Why is this wrong?

A cry of “fake news” is making the rounds concerning the Chinese supplychain attack against Supermicro reported by Bloomberg.

Bloomberg reports all official statements (nationstates & corporations) deny the attack.

Supply Chain Attacks are feasible (tough but feasible) and make logical sense. Plenty of motive for plenty of actors.

If it is widespread, there’s plenty of opportunity for corroboration.

Time to crack open your own #Supermicro and have a look see!

I just ordered an RPLidar A2. I bet a solid state 2D lidar for under $50 will come out next year. I better actually do something with this one before that happens.

@kristina Here's an interesting comparison of a randomized controlled trial with an observational analysis:

@kristina Apparently Boston was going to fix school start times but didn't due to popular protest.
