Just finished The Fifth Season by JK Nemisin which I actually only began reading last Friday. Awesome storytelling with every chapter just drawing you in deeper to the point where it hurts to put the book away for even a few minutes. The best part is, that I've got the 2nd and 3rd novels of the series already on the shelf 🤓

#privacy is the freedom to act without being watched and thus, in a sense, to be who we really are — not who we want others to think we are.

"What can I use to encrypt my Linux filesystem?":

– LUKS/LVM supports full-disk encryption (and optionally 2FA)
– ext4 supports folder-based encryption
– eCryptFS/encfs are outdated/unmaintained
– GoCryptFS uses modern crypto but leaks metadata
– CryFS uses modern crypto and hides metadata but is slower than GoCryptFS

Thanks to Mr. Schumacher from Magdeburger Institut für Sicherheitsforschung

"Welche Partei macht wirklich die digitale Politik von der sie redet?"
Um das rauszufinden gibt es jetzt den #Digitalomat für die #Europawahl2019.:

Was mir dieses Mal sehr gut gefällt ist, dass nicht die Wahlversprechen für die Zukunft sondern das tatsächliche Wahlverhalten in der Vergangenheit (der letzten Leglislaturperiode) als Grundlage dient. Überraschenderweise kommt bei mir trotzdem das gleiche raus wie beim klassischen Format : D

I wish to gather a loose-knit writing collective of academics, tech-folks, & other professionals interested in the intersection of education & technology [particularly the use of open-source or decentralized techs]. Maybe focusing on a group blog where issues can be raised in detail, initiatives documented, & resources shared. No professional affiliations needed; just abiding interest. If this sounds interesting, holler at me.

So...if I want to publish large blocks of tax expense information for different Canadian provinces online... does anyone have suggestions for a good, open source backend for handling the data?

I'd kinda leaning towards something I would host myself, but I've no real background in this kinda thing.

Just had a look through #uBlockOrigin's readme, and I love them, such a good bunch of humans.

"[...] it's important to note that using a blocker is NOT theft. Don't fall for this creepy idea. The ultimate logical consequence of `blocking = theft` is the criminalisation of the inalienable right to #privacy."

Wanted to give them money, but:

"Free. Open source. For users by users. No donations sought."

Fellow scholars, I'm looking for a way/journal/portal to publish methodological details and results from a structured literature search (not a fully qualified literature review) - open access :oa: is a must, open peer review would be nice. Topic is biomedical / medical /health informatics with a focus on laboratory systems. Any ideas or recommendations?

Finished reading a collection of old science fiction stories by George RR Martin today that I picked up while travelling ("Nightfliers and other stories", Harper Voyager). Good reads and fascinatingly timeless style and vision. Looking forward to the TV adaption of the title story.
