Also, give your newborn a generic middle name!

pro tip: Use the less distinctive of your given/middle names when you need to provide a valid legal name.

Shitposting also bald nur noch mit POSTIDENT?

Well, I’m on the phone with my computer security service, and as I understand it someone compromised my IP address and is using it to make shitposts on the internet. I might just be a random target. But this could be an attempt to Qanon me.

It’s an ugly world out there.

Well, I don't know how to host anymore

🤯🤯🤯 Standing up or sitting on a gas lift office chair can cause interference with poor DisplayLink cables and make your display lose signal. WTF.

Tschüss, Google!

"Google hatte sich tief in mein Privatleben gefressen. Jetzt habe ich mich getrennt – und nutze digitale Produkte, die mich nicht ausspionieren."!

@angristan can't upload shitposts pls fix 🙇‍♂️

So my Apple Watch is now gone for good.

I don't think that people should be *that* connected, that trackable, or forced to be hostage to every push notification that comes through.

Yes you can try "Do Not Disturb".

Yes you can selectively turn off notifications.

It's not granular enough, though. It's still painful. It can't learn useful patterns, it doesn't organically alter your notification types by geofencing or time of day, or type of app. Maybe I don't want all notifications for Instagram, but I want notifications for specific user. etc etc

This data is not enriching your lives. You don't need to know how many steps you take or what your heart rate is (unless you have a medical condition). You don't need to know how many miles you ran in your exercise.

You are paying to generate worthless data that you think is clever and enriching your life, but it's not.

The Apple Watch did one thing that I didn't expect: made me love watches again, which I haven't cared about since I got my first smartphone.

We are on the brink of a Notifications fatigue. We had this in the past, and it was with email.

Remember spending so much of your day dealing with email? The tedious, monotonous, worthless time you spent obsessing over your inboxes? That's what we're doing with notifications, except it's tricking us to respond to shitposts at lightning speed and start fights and amp up our anxiety to 11 all day long.

We can do better.

Beim gab es einen schönen Vortrag über die neue, "sichere" elektronische Patientenakte.

Ist natürlich alles so toll und so sicher, wie man es in DE erwarten würde. Danke Merkel
