Sisters with Transistors – the untold story of electronic music's female pioneers and how they transformed the ways we produce and listen to music today.
Looks amazing (and long overdue) – seriously can't wait to check this out.
Here are the full sources for the new LS1028A processor module for MNT Reform, designed by RBZ Embedded Logics (Madrid): https://source.mnt.re/reform/mnt-reform-layerscape-ls1028a-som#mnt-reform-layerscape-ls1028a-som
The chip on this module has dual ARM Cortex-A72 processors and 8GB or 16GB DDR4 RAM while keeping the Vivante GC7000L GPU with open source drivers.
I'm close to moving back to Windows. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to hold oneself back, deny oneself better and easier accessibility in the name of open source, when many open source developers don't give a crap about accessibility, and/or don't educate themselves on it. KDE connect, GSConnect, all were inaccessible for one reason or another, not the least because of Gnome-shell's terrible accessibility issues. That was just the last straw. With the only thing holding me to Linux being Emacs+Emacspeak, I think its time to quit Linux and just use what actually works. It's interesting how being "free" just means being under the power and whim of other people, a mass of developers who have no insentive for accessibility, rather than a cohesive company who does. This is serious, and I want every developer to understand this, understand my deep frustration with FOSS.
@rune @rysiek @cypnk Totally agree, the first report I got for this professionally I was like "fair play" but then the bounty hunter's work got widely shared and we got slammed with people claiming they got RCE on us despite the fact that a) they didn't and b) the bounty hunter's work clearly said that we'd mitigated.
And they were all *less sophisticated* versions of the attack.
The fundamental problem here is people treating themselves like "customers" of systems that are not in fact run for them, they're run for *everyone* and exploiting without taking the time to try to address the underlying problems (in PyPI's case, lack of namespacing support) is just incredibly selfish. UM just want to publish papers, (some) bounty hunters just want to collect bounties, but with no *real* interest in fixing the systems.
It’s disappointing how utterly uncritical the infosec world has been about this.
signal, cellebrite, bad ideas, birdsite link
For anyone celebrating Moxie's Cellebrite exploit, a different perspective:
> "i cannot reiterate how bad of an idea recruiting random signal users into being mules for exploit payloads against cellebrite machines is. sounds good if you look at the world from a western perspective, but it's horrifying if you actually have worked with dissidents"
People act like this is funny because they don't expect to be personally inconvenienced by the negative consequences, but someone could and probably will lose their life over this little giggle, and Moxie and Signal should perhaps think about the responsibility and ethics of their platform technology decisions.
The new stats nz gender/sex standards are out. They' better than they were when they went out for submissions https://www.stats.govt.nz/methods/statistical-standard-for-gender-sex-and-variations-of-sex-characteristics
Keep this frequency clear.
And I will go, I don’t know where, forever.
