Pinned toot

Everybody: I've been taking a few weeks off social-media in general. For the foreseeable future, don't expect me to be keeping up with my whole local timeline or everything.

But do @ me! I'm pretty much warranted to check notifications every other day or so.

TO BE PINNED - Explanation of puzzling following/unfollowing behavior:

On tabletop.social as well as dice.camp and other role-playing-game-centric instances, I'm mostly following people interested in the same games as I (i.e. typically not D&D/PF).

HOWEVER I've been exploring the network by hashtag searches, and tend to follow people from other instances who mention RPGs (including D&D). There's a rationale to that, feel free to inquire.

Just tell me if that feels creepy. I'll GTFO your yard.

Since we're doing the thing, I'm from -and based in- Italy, pushing 40, masc/he but also a bit of a princess. Historian (Early-modern Japan especially), translator&teacher (English), used to work in manga/anime but no more. I play a lot of, collect & design quirky self-contained aka - both 1shot and short campaigns. Played ages ago, but I'm bored of D&Disms (though I might be down for some radical deconstructionist talk).

Facebook has "unintentionally" harvested the email address books of about 1.5 million users during the past 3 years.

This was done as part of the new user sign in process, where users were prompted to enter their email password to verify themselves.

As part of that process Facebook helped themselves to their address books to build up the social graph and "suggest new friends".

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palantir) and on the board of Facebook.

I do not recommend using Brave.

We need to choose either #security or #surveillance.
Fuck surveillance.

Quoting a recent post from Bruce Schneier https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2019/04/china_spying_on.html:
Either everyone gets to spy, or no one gets to spy. And I believe we must choose security over surveillance, and implement a defense-dominant strategy. www.schneier.com/blog/archives…

i've been trying insight timer but it keeps cutting out in the middle of meditations which is just making me more anxious

lots of other options seem to be only worthwhile if you're paying for them

When you wake up to learn cooking gas isn't being supplied to your house because (shit happened to neighbors for which I'm really sorry) is the time you regret not having an electric kettle for backup coffee/tea making.

(Full disclosure: we do have an aging espresso machine, but I don't like espresso. Sue me.)
