People of Hackers.Town, are you going to in-person DEFCON this year? [Yes] [No] [Maybe]

I'm worried about the Delta variant despite the measures taken by the conference. Vegas is known for high-risk behavior and there are reports of vaccinated people coming down with Covid.

Thoughts?

@RadioKPlaylist @slemanczyk Spinitron knows what happened on this historic day!

@jrbinks what were you looking for? It's likely that it's tucked away somewhere not readily apparent.

See you at IRL Cyberdelia in September.

Saw the flying cars ride at Disneyland this week.  We sure go that whole future wrong....  https://thebaffler.com/salvos/of-flying-cars-and-the-declining-rate-of-profit

@daviss A travesty. The community needs to reclaim.

I had a chance to hear Jeanelle Austin and Robin Worlobah speak about how the community managed the intersection. It was inspiring.

Great opportunity to hear Nathan Schneider talk about the intersection of cooperatives and technology at the Decentralized Web Meetup this Wednesday.

It really feels like we're waking from the liminal dream state now. So much latent energy, ready to rush forth, ready for new possibilities.

We might be exiting the liminal state soon, like waking from a dream...

Remember when @amazon Delivered Dance and DJ

This email from 9-9-99 by @mikemcgonigal is nothing like what you'd see today. I remember @ezrakilty mentioning that he worked with @djkevincole in those early days!

Another trip around the Sun.

Another trip around the Sun.

A year of transition and adventure.  A year of beauty and joy within our pandemic struggle.

A must watch documentary on voting rights now on Prime Video. Was lucky enough to see this at the Drive in a couple weeks back.

@doctorow yay! very happily backed all three. Will be nice to have the final version to go with the galley proof.

The known site I'm posting this from is finally back up after a few hours of fighting with podman networking, nftables and mysql unicode collation.

I posted my DJ set from last night if you’re in the market for some background music.

"Police Reform" is the new "Cage Free Eggs"

We don't need more humane oppression. Replace the system with one that is focused solving on human needs, not in reinforcing broken organizations.

Guante's tweet

...I don't share those links as some magical solution. But for the "we need to do more than march" crowd, organizing (in this case, narrative shifting + specific, winnable policy & budget work toward police abolition) is one form that can take. More:https://www.mpd150.com/resources/

Finally solved a really weird network issue on my home network.

Multiple interfaces with different firewall rules on the same wire cause great confusion, but a few sysctl entries fix it.

that xscreensaver is on Android and usable as live wallpapers.

"Hacking the Gibson" adds some nice cyberpunk aesthetic to my home screen...

Oh wow, I haven't read the issue cover-to-cover but I didn't see @waynecoyne mentioned there.

I'll make sure that I do this justice and will see if I can find an ANSI C (or A2) sized scanner for the cover art.

@technolust@hackers.town yeah, good times. Bad reception though! And Radio K only had a daytime AM license at the time. That's why they were 'open to 9pm'!!!

Paul Lindner

You had to work harder to listen to good music back then. @radiok remembers. I'm sure @djkevincole of remembers.
