All Bitcoin transactions are permanent. “Imagine if you went on a first date, and when you paid them back for your half of the meal, they could now see every other transaction you’d ever made — not just the public transactions on some app you used to transfer the cash but any transactions: the split checks with all of your previous dates, that monthly transfer to your therapist, the debts you’re paying off (or not)” daringfireball.net/linked/2022

“Containers” was a category on Jeopardy this afternoon and I’m disappointed there were no questions about Kubernetes.

The problem with Twitter “is that too many people in positions of power remain hypnotized by its stylized violence. Academic and business leaders will enact wild shifts in policy or practices at the slightest hint that these digital combatants are aiming weapons of virality in their direction. Politicians, for their part, seem to increasingly craft their behavior, and sometimes even legislation, to please not their constituents but the platform’s radicalized tastemakers.”

Finally a writeup for the rubygems.org vuln, CVE-2022-29176. Such a simple mistake. I feel like the take away lessons are:

1. do not query/trust composite columns. Query individual columns.
2. do not trust arbitrary user Strings.

I think it was Mita Williams' newsletter that directed me to this article on informal permissionless spaces. It's very good. simonsarris.substack.com/p/wel

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

Just wanted to share this sweet image of NGC 765, a barred spiral galaxy with beautifully extended spiral arms.

Did you see the news that all of the #JWST instruments are aligned now?

Check out this comparison of one of the newly released calibration images from the MIRI instrument compared to images taken of the same region of space by the WISE and Spitzer space telescopes! Look at that resolution! So many newly resolved stars and structures! 🤩

I can't wait for all the new discoveries we'll make with JWST! #Science data starts in only a couple months!

One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.

It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.

It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!
