Resources to help with resume reviews?

Job sites specializing in remote openings?

Job sites for specific sectors?

FLOSS friendly job listings?

Privacy, like security, requires technology that can be examined, reviewed, studied, vetted and modified. It's also a personal consideration

We need a full free and open technology stack: software, devices, data and society

is everything you think necessary for your personal freedom, privacy and security ( even things we have not yet created )

I've been working with Randy Farmer (who has been doing this stuff for a long time) on better explaining the ideas. I look forward to sharing what we've been working on.

In code, I have more these days prototyped, but not enough that sit in users' hands. Working on it...

But it's one thing to have the answers. It's another thing for people to understand them.

This requires two things: good explanations, and to be able to get people to experience the solutions themselves.

That's the fundamental problem.

The federated social web, as it exists, points at a *portion* of the solution. But not enough. In many ways, it has borrowed centralized assumptions.

That's why I've been in research mode with @spritelyproject. I think we now have the answers.

Anti-abuse tools which rely on centralized, wholesale surveillance, particularly when such a mechanism is the primary revenue model of that centralized system, can only get more and more abusive to users over time.

> If our aim is detection of life early in its evolution, we must consider metrics with greater grayness, and therefore also more likelihood of false positives. With this abiotic-to-biotic spectrum, it is unlikely that there is a single metric which will allow for the unequivocal identification of life. Instead, we must use multiple agnostic approaches to life detection that are less reliant on preconceptions of terran biology. It should be noted that metrics that assign a continuum of values to characteristics of life inherently deal with grayness.

It's a challenge not only for science fiction but for real science to figure out what truly alien life might be like.

covid, masks 

on behalf of myself, and all the immunocompromised people I know and/or care about

thank you for wearing masks in public

I know it's not always great
but every time I see someone else wearing on, I'm glad that they don't actively want me to die

You know how it goes with enamel pins... you want 1, you end up with 500 for all of your best friends 😅

If you want one of these, you have THREE DAYS to register for @debconf before the t-shirt deadline!!! #Debian

I made a script that lets me turn my #Mastodon #Bookmarks into an #RSS feed:
You can download it here:
I mostly use the bookmark feature on Mastodon as a 'read later', this way I can save a list in my rss reader and mark them individually as read (my browser bookmarks etc also go into that category).
