I just want to make this perfectly clear: I will never use (known to be) backdoored crypto. I will not purchase "compliant" devices. If it comes down to it, I will stockpile grandfathered legacy devices.

Don't let the coronavirus hype distract you. They're pushing this shit through **right now**.

If you don't yet know about the government's latest attempt to legislate encryption backdoors, look here eff.org/deeplinks/2020/03/earn

Ever deeper down this rabbit hole I go...at least this one was a simple config fix: turek.dev/post/fix-wsl-file-pe

Took the plunge and installed WSL on my Win10 rig.

So far, so good. Once I get vagrant, virtual box and ansible to play nicely, I can finally pick up some personal dev projects I let lapse. 🤞

There's a whole class of weird US court cases against inanimate objects:

United States v. Approximately 64,695 Pounds of Shark Fins

covid-19 and capitalism in USia 

So, state and local governments as well as some banks are starting to provide interest free loans for small/medium sized businesses affected by the pandemic.

If you find out that a business has received assistance but still hung their low-wage employees out to dry, get loud about that shit.

Suffer no such business to survive.
