Very sad he's gone. I loved his TV show when I was a kid, it's what first got me interested in media-literacy and anti-advertising work. If you've ever enjoyed the work I've done in those fields over the years, it's at least a bit his fault.

I'm considering running against the office of President of the United States.

It's been over a year since I've been to the airport in Milwaukee, but it turns out courtesy is still dead here.

did you know that librivox provides RSS feeds for their audiobooks? which means you can "subscribe" to a book in your podcast-player-of-choice :)

I really, really am honored to announce what I'm about to announce.

So when I started thinking about what hackers.town:2600 would be, I had a dream for some spoken word shows to be in the mix as well.

We are going to be doing our own podcast soon that will be broadcast as well... but I reached out to some old heroes of mine and asked permission.

Sometimes all you have to do is ask.

@HackerRadioShow has granted permission for us to rebroadcast their show. These guy are awesome and have a weekly show about hackers/hacking/making on WBAI in NYC... and we will be rebroadcasting their shows in our mix soon...

Guys.

Go follow @HackerRadioShow for the love of god, show them numbers to get them excited about the fediverse, because they have a bullhorn.

@Rob_T_Firefly rob is one of their co-hosts, and plugs mastodon regularly on the air.

Let's return the favor.

I love you fediverse.

Now let's get out there and restore the future.

Party like it's 1995...

im obsessed with this phone and how advanced it looks for its time (1999) while still looking dated

Today I idly web-searched the name of my childhood best friend, wondering about the possibility of reconnecting, and found their several-years-old obituary.

Consider saying an overdue hello to someone important to you, if you can.

Boss: Can we trust this code?

Me: Read this. <link to Thompson's 1984 "Trusting Trust" paper>

Boss: Dear God! Secure software is an illusion.

Me: And most machine learning is applied statistics.

Boss: Stop it! Lalalalala ... I can't hear you.

Me: My work here is done.

Hey everyone! Here's the official *official* announcement post for #TalesFromTheFediverse! I've gotten enough interest (39 boosts can't be all that wrong) and enough submissions to legitimize this as a true project!

If you haven't submitted yet but want to, don't fret! There's still time! Submissions can be either comics or prose, it all depends on your area of expertise. This is *Tales* From The Fediverse (not *Comics* From The Fediverse) after all.

As always, boosts are appreciated!
