Wired reported as of 3 hours ago that wallet is over $100k.

So... yes. It seems lots of people are falling for it.

I don't get why anyone with this level of access on Twitter would waste it that way.

*I am assuming that anyone technical enough to have bitcoins would never fall for it the scam.

It's like these companies don't even know what "remote" means.

If I have to move to be near you, that's not remote. That's just not coming into the office today.

These are the types of companies that won't survive Covid. They can't figure it out.

Not sure if this quote is really from Mike Tyson, but he is spot on 😂

My Hey email trial just expired and had you asked me a couple days in, I was pretty sure I was going to convert to a paying customer. After two weeks, I don’t think I will.

It’s nice and I like the concept of the feed and paper trail. But, it doesn’t feel like the right solution to the problem they’re trying to solve. The absence of some archiving system is also a bit baffling.

The trial did show me that there is room for improvement with email, but also that Hey doesn’t seem to be the one.

I think the vast preponderance of VPN users today use it to geolocate themselves into the jurisdiction of their favourite streaming service.

I'm not sure lay users have any clue that the VPN technology wasn't built for exactly that purpose.

wow, look at the rich details of #OpenStreetMap in comparison to #GoogleMaps:
while Gmaps looks like a work with MS paint, OpenStreetMap shows you a full construction plan incl.lifts, ticket vending maching, public telephone, recycling container, rubbish bin and also so many many more shops in the building:

"Google drops Blogspot India domain breaking hundreds of thousands of links"

What a mess!

Lessons:

1. Move away from Blogspot. It's not getting any love

2. Own your domain name even if you post on someone else's platform (so you can switch if necessary)

Social Search has now almost 700,000 accounts cached there:

search.noc.social/

If you are looking for new people to follow, it might be a good place to start.

Would love some feedback on what else to add/improve/change there.

Examples:

-Look for OpenBSD people:
search.noc.social/?search=%23o

-FreeBSD people:
search.noc.social/?search=free

Why Mastodon and the fediverse are “doomed to fail”

Made a few updates to #LinkChomp. It checks destination links against a black list (properly) now. I also added a quick 'copy' icon to copy the chomp to your clipboard for ease of pasting elsewhere.

That last feature is most useful to mobile users.

If you are looking for a first layer of defense to block malicious domains, maybe be good to try it out.
