This is my son, Benedict. He died yesterday, suddenly, aged 5. I just want everyone to know that he existed, and to see his beautiful smile and know how wonderful he was. He was such a bright spark, the kindest boy. His time with us was the greatest gift πŸ’”

So, I decided to make a meme. Based on a true story.

Just take a left turn on cumloser street. Can't miss it.

I've just released Converse.js 7.0.6

npmjs.com/package/converse.js

It includes an OMEMO-related fix for a bug that on the surface appears bad (and embarrassing), but AFAICT it's relatively harmless.

However, to be on the safe side, please update and generate new keys (I'm sorry for the hassle).

More context here:
github.com/conversejs/converse

Now's a good time to point out that *all* OMEMO work on Converse was done in my free time without pay and the code has not been vetted by security researchers

Here in 2021, bitcoin consumes a small fraction of one percent of global energy consumption.

Most folks don't understand the nuances, and thus don't calculate or project it properly.

I've reached the point where I'm ok with people being wrong on the internet.

I've got better things to do.

It's shocking, but the public has a right to hear the truth about spin in the media. Good on Harry for speaking out.

mainstream media should really re-write their bitcoin mining FUD playbook

our team @CoinSharesCo@twitter.com, led by @C_Bendiksen@twitter.com, debunked this narrative in 2018, and we'll continue to do just that

A has a thin middle, and too fat ends, one rich, one poor. Pure should result in a bell curve economy (reflecting natural IQ/learned abilities of people). The barbell occurs because of perverted trade/monetary/political incentives.

(2) .@joinClubhouse@twitter.com user IDs (not their username β€” more like a unique serial number) are transmitted in plaintext over the internet, making them trivial to intercept. Chatroom IDs (again, more like serial number) also transmitted in plaintext.

A big part of the appeal of the Alien series is the alien and set design made or inspired by HR Giger.

I was lucky to see a Giger exhibition in Basel a while back and managed to snap a pic with a Xenomorph.
