If you are in a photo that has been uploaded to Flickr, IBM may have used your face to train facial recognition technology that could eventually be used to surveil you.

Nearly a million photos were scraped from Flickr to do so.

I am finally writing on my site again. Latest! "Using your .gitignore as your rsync filter"


The rubber band is a criminally-underrated piece of technology.

TV person: "We're about to install the concrete countertops."
Me, to myself: "As opposed to abstract countertops."
Me, quieter: "That's what we call instantiation."

Alright folks, @timotheus and I want to send A/V messages like they do in Star Trek/The Expanse/folks that have holography tech.

Which tech does this, or is close to this, and is free software, on Earth, today? Note, we don't want it in real time. We want to record and send. ^_^

I use talkgroup.xyz for a lot of weird things, but the original idea was to have a cool email/web forum interface for conversations with my peeps. So we all don't need to host comments on our blogs, really. In my tribe we often don't know where to post stuff. Like, this isn't a status update, and might only apply to some folks... that is what talkgroup can do.

And you are all invited. Things are chill, and everything is CC0, and changes get discussed in meta (talkgroup.xyz/c/meta).

dear is there a OSX app that will let me drag and drop any file into it, and it'll use my server + domain to upload to, and give me sharable link? Bonus points if it can set expiring.

I know I can do it via FTP, but I want less clicks to success.


I was emailed by them. What my email says that this article doesn't, is that the 327 million customers did have their credit card info taken, and they can't discern if they took the data too for unencrypting.

Unauthorized access for 4 years. Good grief. I'm glad I have credit freezes on all 4 check places.

Oh my, PocketCHIP friends look at this DIY PChip replacement. They are using a Pi 3B+ and the pimoroni Hyperpixel display plus a diy keyboard and 3D printed case.

Short note to :

We need masks in ! Please send me some and I will distribute them:

I am in the throes of working through a legacy POS API integration project, and it's just like... how does this even work now?!? + large, seemingly useful methods that are actually unused, etc. T_T

@timotheus is documenting a hosting project at talkgroup.xyz/tags/raspberry-p!

Quick reminder, you can add .rss to end of URLs in Discourse, and magic might happen. For instance... talkgroup.xyz/tags/raspberry-p ^_^
