Hey. I'm Cassidy (he/him). I'm just checking this place out. I like FOSS and technology so I thought it might be fitting. I also like nature, hiking, backpacking, and climbing.

In tech, 'smart' refers to any device that stops working when the company that manufactures it goes out of business, regardless of what it does.

The fediverse is a public forum.

Your posts are only as secure as the admins of every instance that your home server federates with, in terms of private and followers-only messages.

If you're going to talk about sensitive information, keep it to Signal or other secure 1-on-1 channels.

Assume that everything you post to the fediverse, is being scooped up by multiple gov agencies around the world.

The Milan scrape was only notable because they made their findings public.

If a university scraping feeds did it, it's safe to assume other, bigger organizations have been doing it for much longer.

Just a few examples this morning. Had a hundred others last night when I wrote the first toot.

Someone should make an open source printer. If nothing else, at least I'd be able to find out WHY it's not working.

The more I read and study, and the more experience I gain working with various communities, the more I realize I harbor several ideals that aren't shared by others in my position.

It's eye opening and frustrating at the same time.

Common sense isn't common, y'all.

Things that feel like obvious, empathetic, I-care-for-those-around-me are seen as alien standards to which others struggle to relate.

@firescotch twitter is the hellsite that everybody hates, but the things that make it so shitty are the ones the influencers rely on, so they just want an exact drop-in replacement
