There are two kinds of Eurorack module:

1. Precise oscillating attenuverter, tuned with a particle accelerator and hand-built by engineering grad-students with strong Linux opinions. $350

2. Experimental glitch reverb-drum made out of some computer chips someone found in an abandoned Moldovan bunker, panel made from reclaimed lawn furniture, built by a proto-sentient pick-and-place machine programmed by a glitch-artist. $350

This dude at work just asked me to explain what calling something hot garbage and a dumpster fire is????

Like his accent places him in the Midwest but I thought everyone knew what those meant

so I figured it out

Mastodon isn't "Twitter but X and Y and Z be more chars"

Twitter is "Microblogging, just like Mastodon, but mostly political and corporate and fewer characters"

the point needs making that "microblogging" isn't Twitter, like "email" isn't Gmail

The inevitable happened: Intel confirms critical security issues with Intel ME: security-center.intel.com/advi

"This includes scenarios where a successful attacker could: ... Load and execute arbitrary code outside the visibility of the user and operating system."

And of course it affects "6th, 7th & 8th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor Family", meaning pretty much all our desktop/laptop CPUs.

Cyber Monday is approaching, do you have your cyber partner lined up?

So it looks like I can talk about the book I'm doing that "Academy Romance" story I keep mentioning for!

It is called "Twisted Romance" and it will be a WEEKLY book from Image, coming out all through February. It's a shorts anthology; each issue consists of a 30p (I think) story written by Alex DiCampi and drawn by some pretty rad artists, a prose story, and an 8p backup comic by an assortment of folks, including yours truly!

You can read more about it [here]( imagecomics.com/content/view/w). If that sounds cool then bug your local comics shop to order it!

My story is about super cute cartoon animals, force-field rapiers, and that weird thing that happens when you and a friend get maybe a little too deep into some obscure media. dragon.style/media/doX8HJMEyhg

"I would just like to know what is the ultimate design goal of that site or that system that’s shaping my behavior or thinking. What are they really designing my experience for?

"Companies will say that their goal is to make the world open and connected or whatever. These are lofty marketing claims. But if you were to actually look at the dashboards that they’re designing, the high-level metrics they’re designing for, you probably wouldn’t see those things. You’d see other things, like frequency of use, time on site, this type of thing."

Thesis: a web of trust based social network wouldn't have a reliable "global" follower / like / etc count -- it would only be the ones you've seen -- and this would be a feature.

Some of the most toxic behavior on Twitter comes from people trying to become "the most popular person in the room", which also leads to a lot of social messaging which isn't about being constructive, but differentiating yourself in a way that makes you look better than others.
