Intro:

I'm Zack, a free software enthusiast and avid Rustecean. I've lived in five different countries, speek one and two halves languages (the halves don't add up because they are different langauges), and I've visited 21 different countries. I use KDE. I'm also a freshmen at a rich and semi-mismanaged STEM university

Even with all the eyes of the world on them, US cops can't stop killing and maiming people, ramming cars into crowds, shooting at nurses and journalists, pepper spraying kids and pregnant women... Not just a few cops, not just one department, but systematically across the US. ACAB

Welp, looks like I'm getting kicked out of my university housing because of Coronavirus. At least my roommate's family is looking after me so I don't end up on the street.

*sigh*

Today's antique store find: a first edition of 1984. Back then they thought a universal surveillance state would be imposed by an authoritarian govt using fear. Now we know we will submit willingly in exchange for some free web services.

This doesn't bode well for any legislation that would curb abuses by marketing firms. If Feds bypass 4th amendment using adtech, regulating that industry could trigger "going dark" claims like w/ e2e encryption.
