It seems to be 99.99% political with a lot of spam/hate in the middle.

That might change as more good people joins.

Trying out Parler - just to check it out and see how it works.

I love the idea of free speech and no censorship.

The problem: All hashtags and most of the conversations there are inundated with spam, noise and adult images.

I wonder how long the non-censorship will last.

I hope they succeed as anything is better than a world dominated by Twitter, Facebook and Google.

*I still prefer Mastodon better :) Love the decentralization and control it gives.

You're in a virtual machine. The pungent smell of ubuntu comes from the archway before you. You need to change a service to start on boot in order to proceed, which command do you use? (No peeking/cheating/googling)

social media, capitalism 

Remember kids, the real customers are the people who give the companies the money.

That's not you.

@us3r64 Nope, nothing that I am aware. Nessus does that, but as a paid product.

@yarmo Good points.

I don't think I ever "discovered" a project through github itself. It has always been via someone's social message, email or reference.

The main benefit is the centralization, so you only need one account/password/face for all the projects that you follow and contribute.

If Browsers are going to do whatever they want, when they want, then the CA/B forum should just dissolve itself and move on.. chromium.googlesource.com/chro

UCSF (University of California San Francisco) paid $1.14m in ransom to get access to their data.

I assume no backups for that to happen.

@jonw Not as private as you would have hoped.
