I help run a web site for people who have some kind of injury (physical, genetic, disease-related). carecure.net/ Is one of the oldest (20 yrs!) and most well-populated communities. Full of experienced and friendly people living with SCI issues, and regular posts from deeply experienced nurses who treat SCI cases. If you or someone you know is living with SCI, introduce them to the CareCure Community.

Happy International Workers' Day!

We whine about 8-hour workdays being long but we got it down to 8 hours 5 days a week literally through the blood and deaths of protesting workers demanding their freedoms while the police shot at them. Capitalism kills; your VC buddies and billionaire idols don't give a shit if you live or die.

We applaud every organization that stood up for .ORG as the NGO sector's home online, and especially @NTENorg and @NatlCouncilNPs for their leadership and refusal to compromise.

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.

This is a regular reminder to help maintain better #privacy and data #security:

- 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.

It's an older meme, sir, but it checks out:

Who thought to call them Quarantine Protests and not "Trumper Tantrums"?

I dressed for work today. Full-on suit and tie. Shoes and everything.

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 ring and it needs charging!? WTF? How has technology made our lives worse? Doorbells that need to be charged? That’s idiotic.
