Remember that terrible token scheme that involved trashing hard drives and which inflated the SSD market for consumers. It all went terribly wrong.

And all we have are millions of dollars of e-waste to show for it. twitter.com/davidgerard/status

In 2014, I gave a talk called Free is a Lie at a run-of-the-mill, dime-a-dozen, Silicon-Valley-worshiping Big Tech/surveillance capitalism conference in the Netherlands.

Yesterday, I learned that they unlisted my talk on *spit* YouTube and that it might be removed.

Dear UK - do not extradite Assange!

The US charges are clearly vengeful, unjust, and punitive themselves. By extraditing him, you are also committing an injustice.

"UK house prices were 0.1% lower in June than the same month a year ago - the first annual fall since December 2012, according to the Nationwide"

Cool. The soon to be negative equity on my house coupled with my -18% return on my pension so far. I'm doing great.

Can we stop waiting to see how #zoom evolves before quitting #keybase?

Zoom was supposed to deliver a transparency report about governments demanding user data. They didn't. These are the folks who now own your encryption keys.

#DeleteKeybase #JoinKeyoxide

released an "out-of-band" for through their Store today.

Enterprises that banned the Store might not get the update in some cases. Way to go Microsoft!

In case you're one of the ones trapped in this limbo, you have to block the store in a USER policy, not a COMPUTER one (which hopefully works (there's no way to check))

I've been in favor of #DeleteKeybase but I never had something to offer as an alternative. Now I do :)
