I'm working for a big tech company in California. Yesterday all employees received an email from our security guys.

We have to deactivate all personal assistant gadgets (like Alexa) during worktime in the homeoffice.

They have evidence that these gadgets are recording audio from conference calls.

Nothing new to me but notable that I've got this order.

Decided I'm going to go back to my old hobby of buying "broken" #thinkpad on Ebay, refurbishing them and reselling them (usually at no profit). This gets affordable computers into the hands of people who need them, prevents landfill, and I get to do something other than work.

Rust depends on a proprietary password manager to build.

If you want to use their official packaging system (crates.io) you must have a github.com account.

Calling smartphone equipped teenagers 'digital natives' is a mistake because a smartphone makes you a consumer rather than a native of anything.

If you want a child to become a digital native give them an actual computer instead of a corporate controlled and curated consumer device.

"Why I still use RSS...I firmly believe the Internet, and what it stood for, peaked with RSS....Having only the content I want to see only be shown when I want to see it with the freedom to jump between readers as I please, all with no ads?
