Thank you, @Guardian! 🙏
The newspaper’s new feature clearly displays an article’s publication date when it’s shared on social media. This seemingly simple change will go a long way slowing the spread of misinformation online. tweeted by @mozilla

I finally finished all 35 episodes (to date) for #darknetdiaries. Great series and I would encourage anyone remotely interested in security to hear these stories. Even if you don't care about security but have some online account(s), still valuable. A donation is on its way!
This show has made my reading list get a bit longer too. Some great books to be had that continue to dive into these tales from the dark side.
Keep up the good work @JackRhysider
The fact that #Tresorit has a "mapped drive" to my cloud storage has been extremely helpful with the transition. After all, I use maybe 1-3% of Word and Excel features. The move to OpenOffice has been fairly easy to date. (knock on wood)
I am really enjoying the move to #Bitwarden. The interface is simple, and finally a good password manager that is open source that I can get behind.
My password hygiene, and more importantly my families, has immensely improved!

Critics say the FAA let the company basically certify its own plane. It turns out, that sort of thing happens a lot in the federal government.
I appreciate this story of how #Tor is used, not just by people living under censorship, but day-to-day people trying to protect their kids.
I've enjoyed building my own private cloud with @nextcloud, so I wrote a quick post about it: https://mikebabb.com/blog/build-your-own-private-cloud-with-nextcloud/ ✍️
I am really enjoying #DarknetDiaries. The stories are incredible. Anyone that uses the internet should have this as required listening. So much valuable information presented in an addicting format, at least for me.
Just listened to another #DarknetDiaries episode and, while it wasn't the focus of the story, something really struck me. After only an hour of forcing hacked Chromecasts to play a YouTube video #HackerGiraffe made, #Google removed the video and gave his account a full strike. One company has ultimate power over this GIANT platform (as well as many others).
Isn't that just a little concerning?
@dildog William Gibson himself agrees
"Much of the planet’s human population, today, lives in conditions that many inhabitants of North America would regard as dystopian. Quite a few citizens of the United States live under conditions that many people would regard as dystopian. Dystopia is not very evenly distributed."
