Just published an interview with @cwebber , one of my very favorite people in this space. We have had the honor of eating sushi and burritos together at various times.


#ActivityPub #MediaGoblin

This year might be the first year with a positive income as elenq.tech founder and lead engineer (translated: me in my sofa doing some random shit).

The great thing of it is that I made #artodon and many other cool things during this time and I learned a lot with you.

I'm slightly happy atm. Also *really* scared because I don't know how will this work in the future.

I don't know.

This project would not be possible without the pioneering work of evanp and @cwebber along with @Gargron and @mmn and many others!

I really look forward to the May 31st beta launch of pixelfed.org

Oh no! Again I find myself working over a fork of a python implementation but this time for a php library :facing_think: I know how it ends

Dance like you're using the entropy generated by your movement to create cryptographic keys

My wife has concerns that she has no passwords to any of my accounts, my laptop, the server in the basement, etc. Working in security, I'm unhappy with the idea of sharing *everything*

Certainly there are passwords I need to share (financial/insurance/etc) but others make me wary (full disk encryption).

Open source password managers don't handle sharing well. Commercial ones have monthly fees that are too high.

If I get hit by a bus I need her to have access to stuff but not when I'm alive

Great overview of different HTTP headers and which ones are actually useful.
