@kyle "If you can't fix it, you don't own it!." I applaud Purism for posting this. Moar companies need to do stuff like this. Thanks for sharing!


All week as we were preparing this article all I could think was: "No disassemble! No disassemble Librem 5!"


Pretty messed up that a mom had to have this conversation w/ their 7-yr-old: "Every time you ride your bike down this block, there are probably 50 cameras that watch you going past. If you make a bad choice, those cameras will catch you." washingtonpost.com/technology/

I replaced my personal laptop with a Librem 5 and laptop dock for a week. Here are my impressions: puri.sm/posts/my-first-week-of

In particular I appreciated the discussion on the responsibility everyone has not just for their own , but the privacy of everyone else they connect with. When you give up your privacy to an app, you are also selling out your friends, family and colleagues.

I really enjoyed this Radiolab episode on all of the security measures behind the Zcash key signing ceremony. Stick around for the bonus security and privacy dilemma when the reporter covering the event discovers their phone is hacked mid-ceremony: wnycstudios.org/podcasts/radio

This is the jellyfish h264 demo on a using the 's VPU.

Using the CPU we take 300% of CPU time, using the VPU instead we take 10% (and even that can be optimized further). Using the VPU also saves ~1.5W of power. Thanks go to the and kernel folks for making this possible!

If you study the history of the Cold War (or watched the movie Wargames), you know we've had many "close calls" that almost led to nuclear holocaust, only stopped by someone's ethics overriding their orders and training. AI won't be programmed with that "limitation".

AI-controlled weapons are coming. For a preview of their "ethics" take all the recent stories of bias in AI, only instead of not hiring a minority candidate or granting them bail, the computer shoots them. washingtonpost.com/magazine/20

@reality2cast @katherined @doc @kyle great episode. Like @kyle I’ve also kept my passwords in a KeePass DB format for a long time. In the last two years I’ve even managed to get my non-tech friends and family to use it as well. I’ve used the following clients with excellent integration to their environments:

Android: KeePass2Android
iOS: Strongbox
Windows & Linux: KeePassXC

All support TOTP natively as well, for management and use of your 2FA credentials.

Take a listen now! @katherined and @doc talk to Shawn Powers and @kyle about protecting yourself online, password and security best practices, and a tragic tale.

Dropbox decided to take a one-time $400 million hit to cancel leases and follow other tech companies in the exodus from SF toward remote work: cnbc.com/2021/02/18/dropbox-ta

"me in the morning, right after I turned the switches on"

This may not be the most impressive winter selfie (it's a 8M sensor outputting 0.3M after all), but you got to start somewhere :)

I did nothing but taking the photo (looped in a script with v4l2-ctl and dcraw; then displayed on screen using Eye of GNOME) - all the credit goes to Dorota and Martin, and the work continues there: source.puri.sm/Librem5/linux-n

BREAKING: Through public records requests, EFF has uncovered documented proof that the LAPD requested and received Ring doorbell camera footage of last summer’s Black-led protests against police violence.

Oh, gonna log it on, hackin' you, baby
I wanna log it on
You don't have a password that's too long
If the guesses miss you
Let me phish you good
Let your password out
Oh, log me on, come on

They are all insecure passwords with so much to guess
People think they're secure
Since they have to be, complex, I love it
There's nothing hard with me hacking you, baby no no
And guessin' passwords, to me, can never go wrong
Unless the factor's two.

Don't you know how sweet and wonderful auth can be,
I'm asking your website to log it on with me,
I ain't gonna worry, I ain't gonna fuzz, I won't fuzz you baby
So come on, log on, log on, log on, log on, baby
Stop beating round the bush, hey

Happy Valentine's Day to my red team and pentesting friends! Here's a little something to put you in the mood:

I've been really trying, baby
Trying to go hack this login for so long
And if you feel, like I steal baby
Come on, oh log on, ooh

Let's log it on, ow baby
Let's log it on, guess "love" baby
Let's log it on, "secret"
Let's log it on, woo
