  1. 1. is it any good



Recommended Posts

Roughly 30% of Americans have "smart" speakers in their homes. Commercial wiretaps. A lot of surveillance cameras hooked up to cloud services too. The market has spoken. Nobody seems to care and they actually pay to be mined.

I used to try to reduce my footprint but at this point you're probably better off just blending in with the noise. You stand out more if you try not to stand out. I'm still not going to be buying a smart speaker or using voice commands but unless you want to just completely avoid society you're going to be cataloged in a system somewhere nowadays, it's just unavoidable.

We need politicians competent enough to know that we should have data rights.

Just don't use the deep web to buy ingredients to manufacture cocaine/smuggle humans/sell or buy firearms/dispatch hitmen/fund militias, etc.

This is like getting caught passing a note in class and you will be disciplined thoroughly.

Not trying to hurt any feelings but most consumer "security" you think you can make yourself "safe" with is cosplay. Keep paying for VPNs though if it makes you feel better.

I did enterprise networking, firewalls, system administration, threat and vulnerability management, reverse engineering, incident response, etc for 15 years as a career. A lot of that time was also spent on continuing education and training, working with law enforcement, attending conferences, collaborating with vendors to help them add capabilities to their products, etc. I'm reasonably educated with signals intelligence and countermeasures as it relates to the basic internet communications domain for commercial use.

If you wind up on someone's radar who wants to see what you're up to, you aren't going to get out from under that. Not saying that's right or wrong, it's just reality.

Shit, @Joyrex we're done here. Time to call Snowden and see if we can't get as sweet a deal as he he's got.

Does this mean Richard and Rob and Sean all get to be reassigned to some other genre, like folk or blues?

I thought we'd agreed that Richard would get hair metal and Rob and Sean get Kentucky Bluegrass?

^ yep! Also you can't really prove a negative. You can have your stuff locked down like a fortress but there could still be a zero day being exploited right under your nose and you wouldn't know it.

Intelligence services monitor politicians and we have to trust them not to interfere in democratic processes with that amount of information/power at hand. Media owners have all the data they need to influence public opinion and elections effectively. Monopolies of power profit from forming cartels to solidify their power. Market disturbances like democracy and free will are now a manageable factor and with the help of artificial intelligence and machine learning these developments might become more severe at an exponential rate.

They exploited a security hole in WhatsApp, and it looks like Bezos clicked on something to allow a video to play. Still, because of sandboxing (not unique to apple) it could only access WhatsApp. 
pretty shoddy security practice from Bezos.

Bulk collection ruled illegal. 

Not sure where to put this. Search results didnt bring up a Snowden thread. This is close enough, i guess.

god i want google deputies to harass me.  everything ive ever typed, every search result ive ever scrolled past, every website linked to their ad platform ive ever visited.  i wish theyd kill me and replace my brain with their deep neural network simulation of me that they use to calculate their projected ad click revenue that i provide them.  not only does it feel satisfying financially to be a pawn in the computational games of billionaires, it's satisfying sexually knowing that they could frame me for crimes by modifying their search history database at the request of the NSA.  lock me up and starve me google i deserve death for being alive

coordination, communication, consensus, cooperation between nodes, consciousness at a higher level of abstraction than the mere individual - class consciousness.  we all know it can be done if the energy is put into it, but when does it start, how and where? who does it? will it be everyone at once, will it be a small group? or will it not come? will it just continue how it is forever? surely it cannot, and yet it can be imagined that this could happen. but it cannot be let to. it's unimaginably unethical. 

capitalists talk about the market and efficiency and innovation and they don't even know they are lying to themselves, because they pretend like they aren't.  all that matters is how they act, and they act like things can keep going on as usual.  they are dangerous and brainwashed, to the future of humanity and all life on this planet.  their crimes are beyond that of the biggest genocides ever conducted, for not just present but future generations as well.  they are manipulating time itself by stealing value from the future through a promise of future degradation, it's slavery and war, mass genocides, the capitalists are enacting war upon future generations, but they make it seem like it's not.  everything is war.

      Michael Fakesch's 1999 album 'Marion 'was recently reissued by Bit-Phalanx in a deluxe double cassette/digital edition! It includes unreleased tracks as well as the 3 Demon EPs which have never been officially digitally available until now! BoC fans take note as their remix has only been available as a low quality vinyl rip previously:

      Boards of Canada's Peel Session is a recording of their 21 July 1998 broadcast on BBC Radio 1 for wikipedia:John Peel's radio program. It features significantly different takes of both Aquarius and Olson. The version of Happy Cycling that we see on this release is not the same as what was actually broadcast, here we find the polished version that also appears as an extra track on Music Has The Right To Children and the broadcast version formerly known as Bad Day being dropped.
       
      There is a great deal of misunderstanding about the nature and timing of this recording, in part because of the surfacing of an unreleased track on peer-to-peer networks entitled "XYZ." This track appears to have been a part of the Peel Session but was strangely omitted from the track listing of the official release. "XYZ" in its full 9:38 cut (shortened versions still circulate) includes an exchange both before and after the track between John Peel and Boards of Canada.
       
      Peel Sessions normally consisted of four tracks which were recorded in advance in the BBC recording studio and broadcast at a later date when the band were not present. Sometimes bands played live on the programme, but they were not referred to as Peel Sessions. The BoC session was unusual because they were in the BBC recording studio recording their session at the same time as the Peel programme was on air. This meant that they could have a live link-up with BoC in the recording studio, and that's when the interview took place. They played XYZ live on the programme at that time (16-6-98 ), but that was the only track they played and the mp3 of XYZ with the interview really is the whole thing. The complete Peel Session was broadcast on 21-7-98 with all 4 tracks, but the band were not present and there was no interview.
