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 )

FLOX - Free Libre Open X(everything)

some days it seems like you were busy the whole day and got nothing done, then you take an unexpected day off and the next day you see how much you would have gotten done as you plow through what you missed the day you were out

Note, by not being a single point of failure on critical items my suddenly being out did not cause undue drama, trauma or bananarama

Because these are really small signals we haven't really been able to look for them yet!

But remember, #JWST just launched recently! And with JWST we will be able to start looking for atmospheres around terrestrial planets.

I'm on a team that has one of the largest amounts of time on JWST over the next year or so to do just that: determine which terrestrial exoplanets have atmospheres! This will allow us to definitively say that they're habitable or not.

How do we measure an atmosphere?

We use a method called Transmission Spectroscopy that looks for the tiny signals from an atmosphere while the planet transits the star.

Last week I told you to imagine the planet was a solid sphere that blocked out star light. Now put an atmosphere on top of that sphere that starlight can pass through and interact with!

When light passes through gasses like an atmosphere, some light is absorbed and we don't see it anymore.

Gmail will block all third party mail clients starting from June:

That is, unless they pay $4500 minimum for an audit :D

Stop using gmail and enabling their monopolistic practices, if you already haven't.

Tues is @SeaGL 's next all hands meeting, let me know if you'd like to help put on a nice, community run free software conference in Nov

Mtg is 18:00 Pacific (UTC-7)

2022 is our 10th year. We'd like to celebrate a decade with some new volunteers (remote OK, I'm remote as well)

Specifically, we could use help with our partnerships committee, which leads our fundraising efforts and works with our partner FLOSS organizations

gonna create a project mgt tool called Hydra, every task completed gets automagically replaced by 2 new tasks. This will be much better than current env where it seems at least 3 or 4 tasks autogenerate when something is done

Note: this post might be influenced by Monday morning catchup and MFA provider outage

Tomorrows job. Mute all the reference words that are polluting my timeline from those who are just auto cross posting from Twitter. Social networks are successful when you are present and taking part. Not lazily filling up our timelines from your other social network. I’ll be muting Twitter cross posts on this account and my account.

p.s. And to make clear, third party apps on Mastodon have just as much access to the platform's features as the official apps.

Twitter restricts what third party apps can do, in order to promote their own app.

Mastodon does NOT restrict what third party apps can do, in fact it's practically impossible for Mastodon to ever have such restrictions because it's an open platform.
