This talk is over again !! “lawful access to encrypted data”.
If I’m not expecting to have a Soviet mic 🎤forwarding all what I say to the Politburo, I’m not expecting neither to have any encrypted text read by someone else than the recipient.
Thanks @protonmail to raise the alarm 🚨
Is your open source project still using Slack for its community? Consider:
Mozilla has migrated their chat to Matrix: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Matrix
Mattermost now offers hosted service with special pricing for OSS projects: https://mattermost.com/nonprofit/
There are probably even more I'm not aware of.
There are good Free options now. Time to get out of the proprietary SaaS lock-in.
I've configured my mail client to only check mails once an hour... and I feel like that not only helps my productivity, but also makes me quite a bit more relaxed sitting in front of my desktop.
Now I wish I could configure other apps to also only spam me with notifications in certain intervals.
For example: don't alert me for every single Mastodon notification, give me a nicely formatted summary twice a day.
The main misconception about defaults is that many users don't change them, because they assume that the developers put thought into the defaults. But the developers don't put ideal defaults there, because they assume the user knows better what they need and change the defaults.
This leaves us with bad defaults that aren't changed. 🤷

The talk and blog post are both very interesting. I think advocates of decentralization (including myself!) should take these arguments seriously.

Last year, millions of people fought back the European Union’s #Article17. The fight isn’t over - we're pushing the EU member states to limit the use of automated filtering and protect users right's as they implement the law nationally. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/09/eff-eu-commission-article-17-prioritize-users-rights-let-go-filters
Recently, we removed Firefox Send because of security concerns and they took the service down. Today, they announced Send is dead.
We will also be removing Lockwise because Mozilla keeps killing projects after adoption, causing headaches for users.
"content-visibility: the new CSS property that boosts your rendering performance" by Chris Coyier https://css-tricks.com/content-visibility-the-new-css-property-that-boosts-your-rendering-performance/
"Seems like you’d have to be a pretty skilled perf nerd to get this right, and know how to look at and compare rendering profiles in DevTools."
I'm a huge perf nerd, and I can't really make heads or tails of how I'm supposed to use this new API. I'm going to hit the snooze button and wait for more examples and documentation to come out.
Security Architect, crazy about new techs and resilient infrastructures.
