Hey, so everyone who moved their OSS projects to Telegram might want to keep an eye out for the other shoe dropping:

Note: Not a request for alternative platforms. I couldn't care less and neither should you.

The COVID-19 bill is released and hidden in it are two *enormous* copyright provisions; the Tillis bill that creates a jail felony for streaming infringements, and the "CASE act" that creates a totally new low-friction DMCA-takedown-like court that can levy five-digit fines for…well, pretty much anything, without the checks on abuse a normal court has or (to my read) adequate notice to targets they were even sued.

These have real potential to harm average Internet users.

"AIR-FI: Generating Covert Wi-Fi Signals from Air-Gapped Computers" They use DDR RAM to generate a 2.4GHz signal... next time, you think that an air-gapped computer cannot generate signals. #sigint #tempest

Alright, time for some pop culture trash....

Watched Big the other day and I am absolutely fucking positive that Elizabeth Perkins is a grown ass version of Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things....but in the past future 🤔

This is some time traveler shit.

I have a server up and running for now - it's early days but pretty impressed with it. I've added some feeds of local bloggers. Check it out at lemmy.glasgow.social

How much do you know about the world?

A great new tool from Gapminder, at upgrader.gapminder.org/.

I must admit I had about 4-5 questions wrong the first time I tried 😇

Have you never heard of Gapminder? Then you might want to start with late Hans Roslings classic TED-talk: youtube.com/watch?v=hVimVzgtD6

Did you like it? Then I can recommend buying the book 'Factfullness' by Hans, Anna and Ola Rosling!(gapminder.org/factfulness-book)

You want to explore data? Check their tool at gapminder.org/tools/#$chart-ty!

Only just discovered this short story written by Peter Watts in 2010. Written from The Thing's perspective. Pretty good! Enjoyed it with my morning cup of tea 🤗

Info that needs to stick around should be on one’s own website, not on a forum or something like reddit. https://karl-voit.at/2020/10/23/avoid-web-forums/

The assumptions here are a little loose, but it's still hilarious :

Apparently people on Twitter have discovered that there's a small but statistically significant rise in people giving scented candles a bad review because they don't have any scent.

You have to wonder if those people have also recently developed a dry cough and shortness of breath.
