I'm not as interested in the VR tech as I am in this dope cloak to reduce external light and sound.

Taylor Swift is using facial recognition technology to ID her "hundreds" of stalkers:

Now that facial recognition software is becoming integrated into our daily routine, its uses are becoming more and more refined. Global pop stars like Taylor Swift, for example, are using it to help identify her stalkers, of which she was, according to this Rolling Stone feature, “hundreds.”

Having lived under Menem's mandate, I tend to think about outsourcing (tercerización) and privatization on a personal level.

@Sir_Boops the *integrity* of the DNS records do not matter as much as others will lead you to believe. Especially when you still have to "trust" that your resolver is doing the DNSSEC validation for you.

e.g., your Android/iPhone is not doing DNS recursion all the way to the root and then validating the DNSSEC records. Instead it has to trust whichever DNS servers it's using is actually doing DNSSEC on its behalf (your cellular provider's network or whatever DNS is assigned to you on WiFi). If we put that burden on every device we would have noticeable latency and an increased load on the root NS servers which is unacceptable.

If you want some privacy, use DNSCurve/DNSCrypt. If you want integrity/trust, you have to rely on existing mechanisms like TLS.

I don't care if someone tries to MITM me because the connections will fail due to certificate errors. This used to be a real scenario where we could be attacked due to abused root certificate authorities, but Google squashed that by making Chrome and Android popular and then forcing Certificate Transparency upon the root CAs / issuers so anyone doing evil activity can have their certificates revoked and lose their entire customer base because their certs no longer work on an extremely popular platform.

This is one of the few good things that Google has done for internet security, IMO.

So in closing, don't worry about DNS security unless you need privacy. That's solvable with VPNs or DNSCrypt/DNS-over-TLS/whatever the hot flavor of encrypted DNS packets are today.

Care about SSL/TLS errors, SSH MITM warnings, etc. These mechanisms are reliable at telling you if you're being fucked with.

To anyone saying we need DNS integrity I ask them why they haven't tried solving BGP instead. It's far more important that all traffic to major services can't be hijacked and intercepted by an ISP in Uzbekistan or the NSA than whether or not someone is trying to poison your DNS. At least when someone poisons your DNS you'll know about it. You won't have any clue someone is capturing all your traffic between you and Google.*

* yes, I know it should be encrypted, but even then we have no clue if there's a vulnerability or stolen keys going on somewhere that may give them an opportunity to decrypt

i absolutely love slack. my favourite feature of slack is how if you open it, it immediately spawns 13 processes and consumes 1.8gb of ram.

So, I've imported ~25Gb of music from the Free Music Archive on open.audio using this method.

It worked beautifully, and it's now available for the whole #Funkwhale federation. Follow this library from your Funkwhale instance and you'll have access to it:

open.audio/federation/music/li

You can also visit open.audio/library/ directly to listen to all this new content! (you don't need an account ;)
