People, that invented Docker and containers in general deserve a medal.

@gabor Ich bin CDU mitglied und heilfroh, dass es nicht Merz geworden ist. Wenn dieser Populist es geworden wäre hätte ich leider austreten müssen.

It's an election year in Germany, and I thought there could also be a hype about German politics :-) (because US politics is of course always in the spotlight). But Germany is also a major country and since I live here, I have decided to write about German politics in English, in small opinionated pieces. So here is the first one about today's election of the new chairman of Merkel's party , who now for better or worse has a good shot at the Chancellery in September 2021

My take on the FB-Twitter-Amazon banning Trump/Parler. +point: take one site down, people will just move to a new one. These sites and services can also be hosted in other countries. Wouldn't it be easier for law enforcement to infiltrate and monitor already established "safe havens" (Parler, 8chan and the sort) for radical activity, than having to always adapt and figure out where they are off to next? Would be interested to read some knowledgeable commentary on this.

Made a new minimalistic blog using Jekyll to post about current topics that are too long for a toot :-)

I was hell bent on solving this with docker and a reverse proxy because I didn't want to install all the dependencies. It was more difficult than I thought, but worth it. Now I can post by uploading simple .md files from my laptop or phone. It's a lot of fun!

Any other Jekyll fans out there?

Dans une tribune du New York Times, Laura Poitras — à l'origine du documentaire #Citizenfour et #Risk, traitant respectivement de la manière dont #EdwardSnowden a révélé la surveillance du monde entier par les États-Unis d'Amérique et de #Wikileaks — demande à ce que #JulianAssange soit pardonné.


Is this the beginning of the end of WhatsApp?

RT @signalapp: Verification codes are currently delayed across several providers because so many new people are trying to join Signal right now (we can barely register our excitement). We are working with carriers to resolve this as quickly as possible. Hang in there.

La justice britannique doit rendre sa décision sur l'extradition de #JulianAssange ce 4 janvier. Le fondateur de Wikileaks a été arrêté en avril 2019 après avoir passé 7 ans dans les murs de l’ambassade équatorienne à Londres.

"Horrifying PDF Experiments"

Spoiler: Breakout implemented in PDF. Yes, the game. Yes, PDF.

If you, like me, find any kind of censorship highly problematic, then I recommend this story...
Cancel culture is rampant these days (especially on FB, Twitter, YouTube)
For me the most thought provoking question in the long podcast is: how good are you at spotting propaganda when it's in line with your own world view (people are generally good at pointing it out when they don't agree with it)

The general story:
