Stress check. Are your shoulders hunched? Breathing shallow? Jaws clenched?

I'm working on conduit.rs which is a new matrix server built in Rust. I'm trying to make it very easy to set up and run. Everything is contained in a single binary. You don't even need to install mysql or something to run it. (tradeoff is that it's much harder to scale horizontally, but that's not the goal)

Possible hot take: A product which uses SMS for 2FA and password reset has only 1FA.

apple’s latest trademark claim

i shit you not

not everything is a math proof

finding one counterexample isn't a valid way to shut down what someone is saying in almost all cases

College swim team takes bathroom break on the way back from a road trip. Local deputies spot the team’s only black member, tackle him, put a gun to his head, threaten to kill him. They later claim they mistakenly thought he’d taken the bus hostage.

Y'know those "we buy houses" signs, often held up with zip-ties? Those are put up by people who are trying to kill your neighborhood. They're trying to displace you and your neighbors, so they can "develop" that area and make it more appealing to rich people.

Carry a pocket knife and tear those fucking things down. No one will stop you.

#LazyWeb Is there a good open-source Android app or webapp that can periodically share my location in a secure way? I just want to share my location with my wife when I go on a bike ride.

Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world?

It was a disaster. Then we added microtransactions and in-app purchases.

Someone on Twitter said martial law in Philly gives white people a taste of what black people experience daily

That black neighborhoods are always under police occupation

When protests cool down, that experience doesn't go away like it will for me

That's why we have to keep fighting for police abolition

In the words of a black queer neighbor: Racism is fascism that hasn't caught up to white people yet.

Fighting fascism must center fighting racism

Nobody is free until everyone is free.

Boost if you can. Demand justice for Tony McDade, a black trans man who was shot five times in the back by a Tallahassee police officer. actionnetwork.org/letters/dema

So, techies, I'm going to remind you of this:

Not everything is a "tech" problem.

That runs counter to our experiences, our training, and our industry, I know.

Hang back; there are people out there who do amazing things without us. Listen to them.

#Seattle peeps,

The curfew that was issued Saturday night was from 5pm to 5am Sunday, AND THEN AGAIN from 5pm Sunday night until 5am Monday June 1st.

To repeat: at 5pm on Sunday, curfew will automatically kick in again.

Plan your day accordingly and stay safe!

I don't know what possessed me to go online after waking up in the middle of the night and check the aftermath of the #Seattle rioting, but reading the police chief calling her use of military back-up #MutualAid in her post-riot press release means I'm way too pissed-off to go back to sleep.
