How I hijacked the top-level domain of a sovereign state
He registered an expired domain used by the .cd ccTLD. Great report.
I’m curious, anyone know if Jack and his team are working with anyone involved with the #mastodon project and federated initiatives?
Welcome, you can use search.noc.socail to find groups, people and interests across the federation. :)
You also have an option with "Trunk" here: communitywiki.org/trunk/ (don't know much about this option yet, still researching it, but its supposed to help)

By the way @rubaski_matt you mentioned me on something as I was changing profiles.. now I lost it.. but here was my response:
"There is no denying that Apple's UI is second to none. My move was purely ideological. The MacOS closed ecosystem just isn't something I wanted to be part of anymore. I still think their experiences are beautiful.

This article by the EFF is really good. I like how they explain their concern about censorship as it pertains to the stack. It’s one thing for a FaceBook and Twitter to ban a user, it’s quite another for App Store and infrastructure providers to do it to platforms. They are, in many ways, becoming part of the web fabric. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2021/01/beyond-platforms-private-censorship-parler-and-stack
This is a great read, I resonate with so many parts of this oped. People referring to “freedom of speech” or “terms of services” are missing the bigger issue at play. Greenwald does a really good job, in my opinion, of explaining why this is all so concerning.
Found out that migrating from one user to another is not as simple as I would have expected, but still very doable. Wrote it up to share the process I used: https://defragged.org/2021/01/13/migrating-to-a-new-user-on-mastodon/
