Facebook Testing Implications of Privacy-Invading Tech By Invading People’s Privacy
Hi everyone! I'm a software engineer in the audio tech space and all-round nerd. Excited to be joining this community 😊#introductions
Recently, I became aware that I was entangled in the addictive consumption of world news - I've now cleansed my droid from all offending apps that make it too easy to get my news fix. Let's all take a step back from the news cycle!
However, now I have a bunch of spare time..
I want to read more about strange history, curiosities, the natural world.. something like Hackernews but less tech oriented.
Any ideas Fediverse?!
google, privacy, e-mail, from
Google started editing people's e-mails in GSuite, replacing links with a link through google.com:
This means that Google will track a click on a link *in e-mail* even if you're using an external client.
I am *guessing* this is under the pretext of phishing protection, but it actually *creates* additional phishing risk for text-only clients, since now all links are google.com links.

HELLO EVERYONE 🦖
I'm software engineer, built many financial distributed systems, but really want to make an oldschool first person dungeon crawler with penis-monsters.
I would write some thoughts on foss (of course, duh), operation systems, self-hosted things, music, especially grindcore and noisy metal tunes, techno and post-industrial boom-booms, best 2d girls and video gaems. All that good stuff.
And I have an adorable big chunky cat.
