Hello world! The logical end-point of distribution and federation is a personal instance. This is my Mastodon instance.

Turns out there's a downloadable WP plugin for speakerstack.net that sends PDF to ConvertAPI and puts the returned jpgs per slide in a Slick slider to present them onscreen.

You might have heard that Conway's Game of Life is Turing complete.

But what most people who are familiar with the game don't know, is what that *truly* entails.

That it is possible to create Life ...within Life itself. ⠠⠵

Are there examples of where the Overton window / Trevino scale is used to rank existing theories/proposals on a topic? So as to better understand the spectrum of positions w.r.t. an idea, and how it is currently/historically perceived?

@metbril je raadde me een tijdje geleden speakerstack.net aan. Weet je er iets meer van? Op de site staat niets, uit de registratiemail haal ik dat het van evermo.re is, wat weer van Logos Creative LLC in Georgia VS is, evermo.re/about/ Maar die wijzen weer niet naar Speakerstack. Vind er online ook precies niets over. Jij?

A ban on #Encryption is a ban on any realistic expectation of online #security.

Even if you don't know what it means or how it works, guess what: you use it already, and all your security on the Internet is predicated on it: from your banking to your communications.

Do *not* let it be taken away.

I've been using Obsidian a little over 100 days now. So, with over three months of daily use it's good to review the experience. Part 1: system comes first, tools second.

Tomorrow is the 20th issue of Tales From The Dork Web. It's all about #solarpunk and building the Solarpunk future we want instead of the Cyberpunk present we sleepwalked into. If that sort of thing is your bag, you can sign up at thedorkweb.substack.com/ or wait till 13:37 tomorrow UK time for it to go out.

I changed the batteries in our garden sensorkit. Apparantly the batteries stop providing enough power when they dip below 3.31V. New batteries installed, and I noted the date to see how long they will last. The batteries died late last month, but I didn't notice until last week.

google, privacy, e-mail, from :birdsite: 

Google started editing people's e-mails in GSuite, replacing links with a link through google.com:
mobile.twitter.com/sneakdotber
twitter.com/tblodt/status/1317

This means that Google will track a click on a link *in e-mail* even if you're using an external client.

I am *guessing* this is under the pretext of phishing protection, but it actually *creates* additional phishing risk for text-only clients, since now all links are google.com links.
