i mean the main argument for VMs used to be that you could just easily port the VM instead of having to write assembly code for each platform, but now that you can just port LLVM and get all the benefits of AOT compilation...

fucking with police tech 

Ok, so cops have this tool called Cellbrite they use to automate collecting data off of cell phones that they physically posses and are unlocked.

Turns out, Cellbrite has shite security, which means that you can drop an otherwise-inert file somewhere in your phone's system that, if scanned, will inject itself and allow arbitrary code execution on their Cellbrite device. I.E, you can make their hardware do literally anything you want, including compromising any data the device collects.

And in what they describe as unrelated news, Signal will start occasionally and randomly stashing some inert files in installations on established accounts.

European citizens campaign to prohibit biometric mass surveillance practices

This is one of the few posts I put publicly and I ask for a Boost!

If you are from EU or you know EU people, it could be interesting.
This is not an usual random web petition, this is an official ECI (European citizens initiative)

I think the biggest thing that bosses and capitalists can't understand that totally breaks their worldview is the idea that people can and often are self-motivated and want to make something good.

I see this a lot in the game development space where devs run mandatory crunch periods and other terrible things because they can't visualize a world where people work on things they are passionate about.

This assumption that workers are always lazy or aren't motivated to do more than the bare minimum is the greatest lie in our society.

The brass band I'm in is having its first practice session together in 2021 today.
The covid restrctions are such that we're allowed to practice together outdoors, and the weather is fine.

I'm so excited I'm vibrating.
