RSS never disappeared, it just became a bit forgotten about as people got sucked into proprietary platforms. I have used many different RSS apps and services and have come back to hosting my own (apps.nextcloud.com/apps/news) but Feedly, Inoreader and Tiny Tiny RSS are all good alternatives.

Facebook has just bought giphy.com for $400m.

A website which hosts free gifs. Valued at four-hundred million dollars. And the majority of those gifs come from media created by costumers/writers/mic operators/camera techs etc. who don't see the value they create normally, let alone in hyper-inflated purchases like this.

How does this make any sense? It doesn't.

Finding a new Twitter handle for ThinkPrivacy has been a pain in the ass. Right now its ThinkPrivacyIO but I am moving off the io domain so I want a new handle.

ThinkPrivacy and Think_Privacy are used by dead organizations who still hold the handles.

With my Keybase accoun deleted, I want to point folks to my Keys and Accounts page on my website.


There's lots of products I don't list on ThinkPrivacy for a long list of various reasons (or sometimes simply because less is more).

Nothing gets me as much hate and arguments as the decision not to list Brave.

There's a massive cult of usership there that cannot take an ounce of criticism over the browser.

If you are concerned with #zoom''s acquisition of #keybase, knowing zooms bad track of dealing with privacy, you have good reasons to do.

If you choose to delete your keybase, account and you’ve got some #stellar coins left inside that you prefer to gift away instead of deleting or knowing it will be for zooms profit, know that we do have a stellar address you can donate to.

Consider the following:

1. #Zoom, a company with bad security track record and murky ownership now has clandestine supply-chain-attack capability on #Keybase, and

2. Keybase is used by a lot of people to sign their #git commits and whatnot.


3. Zoom, a company with bad security track record and murky ownership now has potential supply-chain-attack capability on a lot of software whose git commits are signed using keys that touch Keybase.

Do they call them alpha males because they lack certain essential features, are potentially unstable, and may be seriously flawed?

Your IP address tells websites and ad companies a lot more about you than you might realize.

My latest for the Startpage blog.


Installed Pop_OS's Pop-Shell Window Tiling on my Manjaro system and it's so awesome.

Minor bugs, which I submitted to their Git, but honestly, nothing that has stopped me from keeping it running.
