In my spare time, I’m studying #wingchun kung-fu, I'm learning to play #drums, #guitar, and #piano, I'm learning to speak #French, I run several miles each week, and I watch lots of #classicfilms (#filmnoir and #scifi). I like listening to #jazz and drony #ambient music.

And here's where many of us here, including me, differ from Apple:
"We agree with Apple that security is at the heart of all data privacy and privacy rights. Where we disagree is in who holds the keys. Your data isn’t truly private or secure, if someone else holds the keys."
[Me, sobbing] You can't just call whatever you see a file, Linux.

[Me] Please, no

@somarasu Yo, literally. The biggest fear of white men is competition, especially in the tech game.
A lot of these cats don't want better communities and better software. They get into it because they believe they can create something they can control with less effort than working there way up in their respective careers.
And when they're called on it, they meltdown when they realize that yes, OSS is going to take work too and not just the code aspect.
The thing you have to keep in mind about the tech field is that white guys are invested in running out every other social group when it comes to that field because that is the only way they can maintain their 'dominance' of it.
This is the objective context of working in technology. If a dude isn't actively fighting against this context, he is enabling it.
Either you're for more diversity in the field or not. There is no middle ground.
Google China Prototype Links Searches to Phone Numbers
What is omitted : ALL Google searches are *already* linked to strong identifiers (accounts and/or phone numbers). This time it is just impossible to pretend it won't be used for massive social control, intimidation and repression.
This is what #Google is about though, as its core business model is mass-surveillance.
At some point in the last few years, we have:
) Viewed you through a scrying pool and/or mirror
) Crafted a double of you from blood and willpower and used it to manipulate your moods and actions and/or
) Sunk into a dark liquid pool, then rose again to the surface but the surface was your eyes, through which we saw all you saw, thought as you thought, as intimate as breath.
Due to new legislation, now we have to ask:
Can we keep doing all that?
