Just got locked out of Twitter ... again ... because of this tweet, and so was @exiledsurfer for giving me a heads up on the article.

You can't make this up.

I just published "Meditations on Thinkspot, and design considerations."

Comments, questions, and/or suggestions welcome. :-)


I'm so old I remember when rappers had to catch a train.

Most designers suck at designing for software. They’re too used to presenting things in a beautiful way, hiding controls and emphasizing each “thing” as if they were works of art. Software however is mostly about sifting through junk.

They’re still too rooted in print design ideas where content was curated.

you, a fool: just migrated off your 19th instance this month because a leaked Slack message outed your admin as a Bosnian war criminal

mastodon: calmly discussing how best to steal electronics from wal-mart

Writing something that suddenly gets crazy popular on the fediverse and knowing there isn’t any algorithms trying to make it keep growing is extra exciting. It grows only organically.

A message from our Tech Team:

Many of #InfoSec folk here on #Fediverse have boosted and favourited our toot about Security Analyst position we have open -- thank you!

And yet we have not received a lot of applications so far.

Don't be shy. Don't let the Impostor Syndrome get to you. You don't need a diploma or dozens of certificates to apply. You won't be wasting our time.

We're hackers like you. We need you.

did anyone have a go yet at alphanumeric shellcode for #riscv?

it doesn't look very promising (no memory store instructions !):


so i spent today writing a piece laying out how to write terminal apps without ncurses (and, more importantly, how to write the library that will kill ncurses for good)

this is the result of years of experience delving into dark corners of ANSI specifications, terminfo files, and hoary manpages. this is knowledge that i’ve never seen collected in one place before. please use it, i beg you.


“90 percent of Google+ user sessions are less than five seconds.” you see, #fediverse is already more successful than the Google product developed by super smart engineers with 100k$/year salaries.

OH: "ONE HUNNERD PURCENT!? That is a lot."
