@PrivacyMatters@twitter.com In 2013, FB considered to partner with a firm who provides "credit verification and scoring services", "sees 90% of credit card transactions in the US" + "buys the anonymized, user level transaction data directly from the banks and then works with Epsilon to re-identity the data"

Very interesting stuff in the leaked Facebook documents, indeed.

See e.g. from page 1561:
dataviz.nbcnews.com/projects/2

For example, Facebook did actually analyze "call log data (e.g. duration/frequency/recency of incoming/outgoing calls/texts)" and use it for friend suggestions.

Version 1.0.0 of XEP-0423 (XMPP Compliance Suites 2020) has been released.

xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0423.h

"There is a growing number of XMPP Extension Protocols (XEPs) that provide different building blocks for XMPP-based applications. XMPP software developers are confronted with the challenge of finding the right combination of XEPs for a given application profile. Users need a way to compare applications without resorting to comparing for individual XEP numbers."

FYI, Google is trying to kill web URLs

Google wants users to use Google search as the access point for all content on the web. They are doing this by:
1. Removing visible URLs in Chrome
2. Penalizing sites for not using Google AMP
3. Removing URLs from search results

The year is 2192. The British Prime Minister visits Brussels to ask for an extension of the Brexit deadline. No one remembers where this tradition originated, but every year it attracts many tourists from all over the world.

Quite happy with my little garden of death. It's over to years old now and the plants look very happy with multiple ones in bloom.

Five different types of sundew, two types of Venus fly traps and a pitcher plant. The tropical pitcher got too big, it's in its own pot now.

Oooof. Was just subjected to the most credible phishing attempt I've experienced to date. Here were the steps:

1) "Hi, this is your bank. There was an attempt to use your card in Miami, Florida. Was this you?"

Me: no.

I've fallen into the #911 rabbit hole again recently. Seems like there is more activity around this topic online due to the recent study from Alaska showing that fires couldn't have collapsed that building.

Here's a recent video that sums up much of what's known about the apparent cover-up of how WTC7 collapsed (and therefore questions the entire official 911 narrative).
