Such red hot garbage.☞ “Kids Need Encryption Too”
It’s not that I disagree. It’s just classic list a bunch of problems (cyber bullying, stalking, etc) and then say “make sure kids use encryption”, which doesn’t address the problems AT ALL. You can get bullied by end-to-end encrypted messenger. Switching platforms does nothing. This is a stupid article.
- Turn off your cellular connections when you don’t need them
- Keep bluetooth disabled in public
- Disable location services after needing
- Stay away from untrusted wi-fi
- Avoid un-encrypted texting
- Do not use personal info to name your wi-fi, phone & computer
- Use apps, services and browsers that you trust more
A lot of people are ordering food from restaurants to support them. I get that. Some are even having it delivered. I haven’t eaten anything I didn’t prepare myself in like 45+ days. I don’t know health of people preparing my food and I certainly don’t know the health of people delivering. That seems like a lot of risk to me, especially if I do it often enough to support a business. I don’t see how to balance this.

I rang my neighbour’s doorbell and they never came to the door. Ultimately I texted them to say I left something on their front door step. Turns out that their doorbell is a #amazon ring and it needs charging!? WTF? How has technology made our lives worse? Doorbells that need to be charged? That’s idiotic.
This is amusing me to no end:
tl;dr yet another one-liner npm package broke millions of other projects
npm is da shit
@Matomo I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you about a misspelling all over your web site. The phrase is "on premises" not "on premise". A premise is an assertion or a proposition. "Premises" is a strange plural noun that means building or property. So the opposite of "cloud" is "on-premises", not "on-premise". FYI
I gotta admit, I never understood the implication of Bayes theorem on medical tests until I read this on “immunity passports”: https://unherd.com/2020/04/how-far-away-are-immunity-passports/
