@Gargron is a fairly amazing fellow. We spoke via video two years ago and you can watch that here:

I used to read my wife's magazines. I remember one article I liked a lot, the author said (translating from French) "He knows how to install a disk drive or add RAM, but doesn't know how to run a washing machine!" So very true.

Here's the app that can allow an old Android phone to stream media to your network:

I used this on an old OnePlus One to inspect our roof after a storm. Works great!

The idea of "dying to help the economy" is absurd. But declaring “This is a free country, I can go get my hair cut if I want!” is moronic. If you continue to infect others, there will be no economy.

A “free country” is not a license to put others in harm’s way. It is free thanks to sacrifices every citizen must occasionally make.

I should use them though. Some jerk made fun of me in the early days when I did use them, saying "this isn't twitter". I ignored that fool, but do forget to use them where it matters, such mymusic etc.

Guppe: Fascinating!
Let's try @saxophone and see what mischief saxophone players and aficionados might create.

Looking for programming work?

Roam Research:
"Should love Clojure, be comfortable with some devops type work, and ideally have experience with Datomic and datalog.

Big points if you're familiar with the work of Doug Engelbart, Bret Victor, Michael Nielsen, Andy Matuschak, and Alan Kay.

SF preferred, but we'll consider remote."

The fediverse is a public forum.

Your posts are only as secure as the admins of every instance that your home server federates with, in terms of private and followers-only messages.

If you're going to talk about sensitive information, keep it to Signal or other secure 1-on-1 channels.

Assume that everything you post to the fediverse, is being scooped up by multiple gov agencies around the world.

The Milan scrape was only notable because they made their findings public.

If a university scraping feeds did it, it's safe to assume other, bigger organizations have been doing it for much longer.

Some of you might have something to say at Kamailio World in in April. Great tech conference. It is about Kamailio, but can also be about communication in general.

Those that fail to remember the past are doomed to repeat it, over HTTP

"For more than two decades, tech companies have built a deeply enmeshed system to track the habits and identities of millions of users, every second of every day, and then swap or sell that information to further fine-tune marketing, advertising and business strategy."

In case you're not familiar, #qaul.net is a free software project that aims to connect people via ad-hoc mesh networks. Born out of the riots in Egypt in 2011, and the #freifunk project, it made Android phones able to create decentralised, internet-independent networks on the go, with very little technical knowledge required to set it up!

The project is currently grant funded and what I get most of my money for to live. WE have an IRC channel on freenode if you wanna say hi, and the above ML.
