Amazon's Rekognition shows its true colors https://www.bitsoffreedom.nl/2019/12/12/amazons-rekognition-shows-its-true-colors/
Because I use DMARC on my mail server, it seems I'm entirely invisible on most mailling lists because they're (at least) changing the subject line.
Wish more mailing list operators would read this: https://begriffs.com/posts/2018-09-18-dmarc-mailing-list.html
@djmoch Lua is great for these situations, it was literally built to be a scripting language that apps could implement for plugins/extensions.
I’m pretty close to adopting Vis as my editor of choice. It strikes a good balance between the spartan Vi and the configuration hell of Vim. For things I do want to configure (eg, file-type based expandtab setting), there’s a Lua API. Say what you will about Lua, but it’s better than Vimscript.
Plus structural regular expressions!
Twitter's decentralization play
I'll repeat what I tweeted about it: the hilarious thing is that they could take their budget for this initiative, slash it by 90%, distribute the remaining 10% to like 2 dozen Patreons, and thereby do approximately 1000% more to create a viable decentralized social media standard and implementations.
One thing I really appreciate about collaborating with @emacsen is that he's been very willing to listen to, consider, and adapt to constructive feedback, and has also been willing to give such feedback back in my direction (I strive to be as receptive, maybe don't always succeed). Ideally, we aren't statically defined beings; it's important that we be willing to work together to adapt towards better selves, especially as we take on new challenges.
