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)

I might seem all over the place, but I've actually been very singular in my focus towards distributed, rich virtual worlds for over a decade. It's just a lot of work to get there:

- MediaGoblin lead to ActivityPub
- ActivityPub is a distributed social system
- Liberated Pixel Cup gave us base graphical assets
- XUDD, 8sync, Goblins are all actor experiments so I can understand the technical foundation
- Datashards lets us securely distribute assets
- Ocaps bring us security

Topic: passiveDNS For fun and Profit (part2)

Last night our other speaker was one of our panelists from Space Night, so I brought it up when it my time for my presentation :)

That's from a couple years ago. One of the attendees was one of Austin's employees on JPL projects. We might have Space Night II in the planning!

Seriously, verify your systems after an update. Only continuous monitoring of security features will make sure you don't expose people to insecure systems over time.

This morning I had to notice that my traefik setup decided to downgrade its defaults to SSLv3 due to a bug in the go TLS library.

So yeah, if you run anything server-side that provides TLS and is build with go 1.12.x you might want to verify it.

I was like, hm, I'm going through a lot of dehydrated ingredients... I wish I had a dehydrator so I don't have to buy them pre-dehydrated!

I wasn't thinking about it, but I have an oven (and with a convection feature as a bonus)... that already *is* a dehydrator
