I'm about to do a Reddit AMA about BlueLeaks, the 269gb hack of police data, with Mara Hvistendahl from The Intercept. We've been digging into the data and reporting on it -- ask any questions you have! reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/i3n

I'm quoted because of this blog post I wrote a while back: nolanlawson.com/2017/03/05/wha

In case anyone's wondering, I feel a lot less stressed now about OSS development. My main strategy was:

- divest myself of open-source projects I neither had the passion nor time to maintain anymore (PouchDB and associated plugins; I created a pouchdb-community org to manage it)
- set up email filter rules for GitHub notifications, categorizing by org. I hard-ignore repos I don't care about
- doing less OSS 😕

Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

imagine being able to hack all those Twitter accounts and not using it as an opportunity to speak with a hundred mouths all chanting the name of the coming of the Queen of All Doom, the Many Voiced, the Bearer of Soft Release, the Frozen Teeth Eternal, so all may know her and tremble at her approach?

Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha god what's happening on Hellsite right now is just pure... *chef's kiss*

So seriously tho — encouraging people to eat out, and a tax break for people buying property. WHAT A STIMULUS. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Fuck the Tories, what a bunch of totally useless shits.

moa.party is busted so I've revoked its ability to crosspost to Twitter — which, happily, coincides with me abandoning Twitter in general.

The upside is now I can be as ungodly political as I want here. This account will be for news and leftist ranting, @aendrew@mastodon.social will be for general-purpose shitposting.

I'll always CW news/politics from this account, but given it'll be mostly that, please just straight-up block this account if news/politics aren't your jam, I'll understand. :party_heart:

The first rule of coronavirus club is you do not talk about coronavirus club because everyone gets pissed off at absolutely everything anyone says about it

Gosh 2020's been a pretty wild ride so far, huh?

@natecull Holy hell, is this how we solve climate change (albeit like 20 years too late)??

@natecull Omg, what is this actually did result in a generational bump? What impact it would have on politics?
