I love the smell of geekosterone in the morning... and mojitos at night.

I speak fluent sarcasm, & occasional snark. I'm a rain-breathing, webbed-footed #Seattle native. I can name an #EltonJohn song in ~3 notes. I'm heavily into #privacy #security / #infosec & have zero trust in third parties.

Some of my opinions WILL differ from yours(!!) I'm ok with this. Are you?

Apocalypse planning since 1994. My other acct @justyourluck is where I keep it doomy, all pandemics & disasters.

It just clicked in my brain. What I haven't been able to articulate about why I'm so anxious about #Windows Recall. I'm sure others have already gotten to where I am.

It's worse than "a system that tracks everything you do" and stores that info in a basic database that could be easily compromised.
It's worse than a nanny surveillance tool for companies to spy on their employees.

It's inescapable.

It doesn't matter if I make a dozen "how to disable recall" tutorials. The second YOUR data shows up on someone ELSE'S screen, it's in THEIR recall database.

It won't matter if you're a master #security expert specialist. You can't account for EVERY other computer you've ever interacted with. If a family member looks up an old email with your personal data in it, your data is now at risk.

If THEIR system is compromised YOUR data is at risk.

I just went from "vague feeling of unease" to "actively writing templates to canvas elected officials, regulators, and attorneys general."

THIS IS BY DESIGN!

Just like when LinkedIn used to automatically scrape your address book. No matter how careful you are about your personal info, like real names, etc. as soon as someone you know opened the app, there went your data, AND an invite was sent to your personal email address, differently but so personal. Gee, funny thing, it's Microsoft too. They got called out on it and stopped but not before they got a shit ton of data. Roger that, right @elfin ? 😏

Yes, sorry, I realized that sounded a little condescending as soon as I hit send. Keep jumping up and down and waving it in people's faces. They don't quite get it and they need to. Not so they need to. I'm fact, this gives me an idea for a toot. Watch...

NY Times: The Heat Wave Scenario That Keeps Climate Scientists Up at Night https://www.nytimes.com/2024/06/03/opinion/heat-technology-climate.html

"We" spend so much time arguing about who is causing the problem and how to stop it while nobody is preparing for the problem to happen no matter what we do to try to stop it. Boohoo it keeps them up at night. DO something!

Why aren't we building safe places to be during the coming times, like Derinkuyu?

It's not like we don't possess the technology to build giant underground cities.

Plus, it'd be kinda badass! 😁

Stoplights are
NOT A SUGGESTION!!!

If you can't manage to stop when the stoplight is and has been red, GTF off the road.

I honestly don't think I've seen more than one maybe 2 cars drive through a solid red light before

Now it's all the fucking time.

You have to check both ways before going through a GREEN light!

It appears Google's AI overview is really just RAG over the top search results (= search stuff on the web given the user query, let LLM answer query given the contents of search result)

Naturally, redditors have started poisoning search results. Google ranks Reddit very highly. This issue is basically not fixable unless Google largely ignores Reddit content except for known good content, or develops a model they can use to filter adversial content (which is basically impossible)

Glorius.

Reddit is just laughing at it. That actually came from Quora.

There's an AI on Quora that prompted the snarky answer that fed the AI on Google... It's a total circle jerk.

A family member has their meds sent to my house for reasons.

It is the ONLY thing EVER to be sent here in their name.

Yesterday, in the mail, you know what showed up?

Holy shit!

Have more kids and cleanse those PFAs right out of you ... and directly into your babies. 😱

"The records “showed clearly” that earlier life exposures led to higher levels of mortality, except for women who have multiple children.

Previous research has found levels were higher in women with only one child.

The chemicals accumulate in placentas & are passed on to children during pregnancy, which reduces levels in the body." ‼️😱

Yeah. Did it clear out of the mother via the baby though? That's the most horrifying part to me.

Cops removed journalists first

Like it's 1968

They still don't get it

We're ALL journalists now

And we ALL have video cameras

And nobody has to wait for the 5 o'clock news

To witness their actions.
