If people want an open network, stop shit-talking open things 

Having that first day of school feeling. Today I'm starting a conversatie cursus. Mixed blessing of living somewhere everyone speaks English -- it's harder to learn the local language since you're never forced to use it to communicate.

actually it's only a city if it has a robust public transit infrastructure that allows you to get to any point in the city without using a car. otherwise it's a sparkling suburb

@holly Cannily so! It's like I'm dealing with thinkable powers which are strictly within my ken!

I spent months digging into the state of cybersecurity in the healthcare industry for Ars Technica. Deeply grateful for insight from Jeff Tully, Christian Dameff, Billy Rios, Beau Woods, Suzanne Schwartz (and others not quoted) and to Nathan Mattise for brilliant editing and being a great sounding board. arstechnica.com/information-te

NEW! Landmark ruling in the Netherlands: Dutch court ruled that privacy prevailed over the hunt against alleged benefits โ€œfraudsters.โ€ As benefits claimants are surveilled around the world, this ruling could have global implications.

I'm listening a podcast about the fates of the Dutch resistance members who started Het Parool in WWII (that's pronounced "Parole" for you English speakers) and they mention at the end that 5 Feb there's an annual memorial ceremony for those who were killed after being captured. So, have a moment of gratitude for the free press, and go buy a newspaper. (The podcast is Free and Fearless: The Story of the First Parool Trial, btw)

Finally got to a talk at and turns out itโ€™s one I already saw.. at Camp ๐Ÿ™„ I think maybe I go to too many tech conferences

Life hack:

Academic papers are written by human beings who want their work to be read; and these people actually pay to be published in those journals. the journals do not pay them. And all journal licensing deals stipulate that the original author retains the right to share their own research.

So 99% of the time if you email the author of an academic paper and ask for the PDF, they will gladly and excitedly give it to you for free over email.

Folks, you know those things you share with me privately about the shit thatโ€™s going on in the industry and in the orgs that are supposed to be fighting for our rightsโ€ฆ can you please start sharing them publicly too? I appreciate the info but we need more than me speaking out.

is making me miss
Way to go Germans -- you manage to create with a volunteer-run hacker club what a bunch of high dollar sponsors cannot: a well-functioning conference.
