Lol, with my 5th dose I hit the Trifecta of Covid shots: Moderna, Pfizer and J&J


Achivement Unlocked: Got mistaken for Danny Elfman!


Leaving Montclair...

So many memories at 2 Saroni Court. The location, house, and neighbors were spectacular. But now I'm creating an amazing new life in Burbank, so I hope the next family enjoys this gem!


History doesn't repeat itself, but it sure does rhyme! Deb Schultz lays it out...


One of my 2023 Resolutions is to embrace change. I love how the Year in Search video captures the sentiment!



This totally feels like a Web 1.0 playlist!

Mars FM was a short lived LA radio station I just learned about. Those beats.. they are biiig


A thoughtful @longnow session happening now...


My journey to @wastelandhq begins!

Transiting LA/San Diego and parts in between. HMU!


Here are some thoughts on Decentralized Web Camp 2022

It was a magical time, so many good connections. A fertile ground where seeds can grow.


What if Scooby Doo and Rocky Horror had a baby?


Thank you @cannibal for capturing this special @defcon moment! ❤️❤️


Playa bound in a month and a half! Feeling amazing sense of gratitude for finding an amazing group of people to create adventuresome quests. If you contribute to our fundraiser I will supply you with rare artifacts from this journey!


Wait, *that* Forest Green? from the movie Groove? Finally connecting those dots. And yes, it bangs!



R is for Rave!

How was I not aware of the Toytown Techno genre before?


This expression of pure joy in motion was just what I needed to hear and feel this morning!

Thank you @domwhiting and your crew!


that parking tickets for Los Angeles City and County are disjoint but look EXACTLY THE SAME. Ha two tickets the same day. Accidentally contested the wrong citation. Ooops!


For those that want to review the post-9/11 tech downturn and not finding them on the Wayback machine here's where the FC Archives ended up.




What do you call a group of confused deputies? Asking for a friend.


Traveled to the dystopia cyberpunk future where I jacked in my Google Glass and was able to stay in the moment and in character. So many magical moments.


Want all the TikTok videos?

1. Go to profile. Scroll to bottom
2. Open web console.
3. Execute this Javascript, replacing USER
x=''; document.querySelectorAll("a[href^=https\\:\\/\\/www\\.tiktok\\.com\\/\\@USER").forEach( e=> {x = x+ e.getAttribute("href") + ' '}); copy(x)
4. Open a command shell
5. Enter yt-dlp on the command line and paste the URLs from step 3!


Hacker News Ingested

Here's some q&d scripting to pull your comments into a bunch of shpub commands. You'll need to edit some of the quoting, but it works well!

curl |jq > hackernews-plindner-threads.json
cat hackernews-plindner-threads.json | jq -r '.items[]| "shpub note --html --syndication=" + .url + " --published=" + .date_published + " --name=\"" + .title + "\" - <<EOF\n" + .content_html + "\nEOF\n\n"'



September 2021 reminder that I'm not a German Politician!

If I was I'd be way more in line with @dielinke

If you want to do something about the situation in Texas, folks on the ground seem to be suggesting donating to @TEAFund


Thinking I should schedule time in my calendar to close tabs...


Recasting Algorithmic bias as security vulnerabilities with specific harms and a bug bounty is brilliant! Now I want a "Project Zero" team to go out and find these.


I love this. Google should offer similar bounties. And can we please spin up a Project Zero for AI Bias while we're at it?!



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.



See you at IRL Cyberdelia in September.


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.


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!


Don't let the relief of a guilty verdict stop the march towards systemic change.


Much thanks to the fine folks on /r/LongBeach

It's the internet doing what it does best.


Caffleine has departed... Google is a lesser place


Lunch Ninja is still a thing..

Have had 2 so far, would recommend...


Can't believe that Google Photos still does not have a way to find photos without location/face tags. :(

You'd think we'd want this for better quality data as inputs.. People are motivated to add this data to get better maps/timelines... for context..


Through some intermediaries I'm trying to help a Saudi get access to her Google accounts. It's difficult since she was jailed and tortured for three years, doesn't have access to the recovery email address or phone numbers.

Sadly the Account Recovery process is proving to be its own form of pain.

If anyone wants to further escalate case 2-0838000031065 I'd really appreciate it.. I've gone back and forth for a few days already on this.

Apparently Twitter was very proactive about getting her back on. I'd love for us to outperform their customer service!!!!!


What is this now? I just received a sketchy invite to my corp. address.. Hmm, the dark patterns are at play...


FiraCode + Ligatures -- so nice!

Better late than never I suppose :)


I'm in Dallas for a few weeks. If there are any Googlers that want to say hi in a socially distant way I'm up for it!


I have a chromebook with a noisy fan, so it sounds like a truck engine..

Actually kind of fun as the fan revs and slows. Launching gmail is like pressing down on the gas pedal hard :-D




Me building stuff with parts I find in google3...


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.
