Next time you want to say things like "hackers broke into this system" or "hackers stole credit card numbers", please replace the word "hacker" with "cyber criminal".

Let's stop exacerbating the mainstream media's misunderstanding of the word "hacker".

In my last presentation, I almost wrote the sentence "Centralized systems are honeypots for hackers" and then replaced "hackers" with "cyber criminals".

#hacker #hacking #CyberCrime

One of the peculiarities of :mastodon: is the lack of text search.

This is actually beneficial! It makes it harder for trolls to search for words or phrases for the purposes of harassment. But the con of this is that it makes it difficult for people to discover your public posts.

That's where hashtags come in! Hashtags are fully searchable/subscribe-able between federated instances, So if you want your art/comics/musings to be seen, hashtags are the best way to reach a specific audience!

If parallel universes exist, there must be a version of me in one of them who became an electronics engineer and won't shut up about self-hosting electricity using solar panels.

The year is 2008. I am 14 years old. Some greasy nerd on the side of the road asks if I like computers. I say yes, naturally. He hands me a Software Freedom Day CD and asks if I know about Linux. I don't. He takes me into a random room filled with more greasy nerds and shows me a desktop spinning like a cube. I take a copy of Ubuntu 8.04 and head home.

And that's how I got here.

People would have found the world Very Wet before the invention of towels.

US Politics 

Over the past few months, I have come to believe that free software is lagging behind not in terms of technology, but in marketing and UX.

Most people just don't know that alternatives exist. UX also suffers because there is less diversity of users providing feedback. These two problems keep feeding each other.

@Copenhagen_Bram Can I take blue one too?
What if I cut both pills in half, and take both different halves?
Can I take those pills after drinking alcohol?
What are the interactions with other medications?
Is there a prescription for those pills? Or the manual?
