      RT @lnxw48a1 @geniusmusing Yeah. :-( I think the #blockwars folks may have indirectly caused this. There are people who file complaints against client apps that don’t build in blocklists against specific servers whose moderation policies they dislike. I think that #Matrix / #Element competes with one or more Google-owned chat-type services. Since they gatekeep the […]

      And I can't figure out how to connect to a particular server. The #Patchwork #SSB client I'm using has a "+ Join Server" field, but it requires an invitation code. Which I can't generate unless I have a pub server. Which I can't join until I have an invitation code... Sigh. #SSB: Concept: A+ ; […]

      I was on #SSB Secure Scuttlebutt for a while (attended an #SSB seminar at last year's LibrePlanet conference), but the application was so resource intense that my laptop couldn't keep up. And, there wasn't the network effect I needed to make it useful. While there are probably interesting people to converse with, I have no […]

      Oh, hang on. It's @joeyh who reveals the inadequacy of #journalism. Not the article author, @Jonemo@twitter.com #ReadingComprehension

      @lnxw48a1 writes "In this post, Joey H. accidentally reveals a major reason why #news_media / #journalism is so bad today." This didn't leap out at me. Is it because good, in-depth reporting requires A LOT of research and hard work, and that modern journalism is adequately rewarded by re-Tweeted sound bites?

      That was much better than I expected it to be. Covers the spectrum of opinions of several #ITSec professionals, and does not strike an alarmist note. Sadly, somewhat devoid of practical advice, tho. https://www.hipaajournal.com/hipaa-password-requirements/

Pictures from the KW Ubuntu Release Party

The Kitchener-Waterloo chapter of the Ubuntu Canadian Team had a wonderful Ubuntu Release Party today. Laurel Russwurm baked a cake and I made some devilled eggs:

If you squint a little you can make out the Ubuntu logos…

Ralph brought the official Ubuntu banner:

That’s Jeff, Sergiane, Raul, Ralph, Karim, Bob, and Henrique.

Then it was time to cut the cake:

Cutting cake is serious business!

And the second shift finishes it off:

That’s David, Gord, Bob, Ralph, and Darcy.

Many thanx to Paul for hosting and The Working Centre for the use of St. John’s Kitchen!
