Paper day! (🧵)

Through the last couple years, I have spent a lot of time looking really hard at the galaxies in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, trying to find galaxies in there which are emitting ionizing "Lyman Continuum" (what the streetwise know as LyC) into intergalacitic Space. Today, the article hit the preprint-server ArXiv, signifying that we think it is ready to be presented to the world...

Mastodon tip 4 💡
Del, del, del og brug hashtags!

Hvis du ser noget godt indhold og "favoritter" det, betyder det ikke at andre ser det. Ens tidslinje afhænger nemlig af hvilken server man er på, og hvem man følger.
Dem der følger dig ser til gengæld ting, du reblogger (deler). God forklaring i screenshots. Boost godt indhold og giv det videre.

Husk også at bruge hashtags, så andre kan finde dit indhold når de søger på emner. Brug f.eks. gerne hashtagget #dkmastodon for dansk indhold.

> On Thursday, NHTSA said it had discovered in 16 separate instances when this occurred that Autopilot “aborted vehicle control less than one second prior to the first impact,” suggesting the driver was not prepared to assume full control over the vehicle.

> CEO Elon Musk has often claimed that accidents cannot be the fault of the company, as data it extracted invariably showed Autopilot was not active in the moment of the collision.

Sigh. 🤦‍♀️

"Is 'acceptably non-dystopian' self-sovereign identity even possible?"

An essay about self-sovereign identity, decentralized identity, verifiable credentials, soulbound tokens, and all those other terms that have been flying around lately.

Hvis journalisterne i #dkmedier gjorde deres hjemarbejde i form af research og baggrundstjek af dem der råber højt om wokeisme og krænkelsesparathed (skældsord fra højrefløjen imod dem de er uenig med) , så ville de gennemskue at det er den samme kampagne som lå bag Gamergate og shitstormen imod SAS i forbindelse med deres reklame i sin tid.

@lightweight @bob Let’s take it even further: good societies bootstrap great people; they should also have a share of the ownership. If an org agrees to a charter that stipulates that they cannot be sold/bought and that their work must remain in the commons (eg., mandated AGPL license), then they should be an independent org that is funded from the commons for the common good. The independent bit is crucial though. You don’t want it to turn into govt control.

I am not over the fact that a gun company made a gun named the Crusader, stamped Psalm 144:1 on it, it's in such high demand that there's a 12-18 month waiting period, and we don't treat it as a call for religious terrorism.

#accessibility post i found on tumblr:

some of you may've heard about that fancy "bionic reading" typefont thats supposed to be easier for #neurodivergent people to read (if you're unfamiliar, it bolds the first few letters of each word to make it easier to follow)

well guess what, its locked behind a $500 a month API to write in because fuck you!

introducing, Not Bionic Reading! it is literally just the bionic reading typefont but for free. god bless neocities

My name is Sam, I'm a Danish software development student at the IT-University of Copenhagen. My main interests are IT security, data privacy, cryptography, Free & Open Source Software (FOSS), decentralization, cryptocurrencies & blockchain technologies, self-hosting and everything that's NOT #BigTech related. Besides that, I also love being social.

My toots here will be in Danish and English.

Det er sgu lidt smart at man i appen Element til det decentraliserede Matrix netværk kan skanne sin kommende kontakts QR kode (Matrix adresse) og starte en chat. Nemt og lige til under et møde. Matrix giver adgang til end-to-end krypteret chat, tale- og videokald. Der findes en Element (Matrix klient) til Android, iPhone, Windows, Mac og Linux.

Jeg havde faktisk tænkt mig, at jeg skulle udskifte min desktop i år - jeg havde bare ikke forestillet mig, at det skulle være *lige nu*. 🤯

Who knew, at det kunne tage livet af en computer at klappe den lidt på låget, fordi blæserne klaprede lidt? 😂

Also, hvis nogen har tips til, hvad der kan være galt, når den tænder uden at brokke sig, men der ikke kommer noget signal til skærmen, så tager jeg imod med kyshånd. Er grafikkortet bare dødt? ❤️

At købe en Tesla fordi det er den bedste elbil er lidt ligesom at købe en “Make America Great Again”-kasket, fordi det er den bedste kasket.

Jeg er privatlivsnørd og har været det siden Snowdens afsløringer i 2013 af NSA o.a. massive masseovervågning af os allesammen. Til dagligt arbejder jeg med IT og support af brugere. Kort fortalt. IT+HR. I min fritid hjælper jeg folk med at beskytte deres digitale privatliv. Fx folk der udsættes for chikane og/eller har en stalker. Hjælper også kilder og journalister med at kommunikere sikkert og anonymt, hvis sidstnævnte selv vågner op og beder om hjælp.

So... I've been offline for a couple of weeks. What did I miss?

Long story short, I broke my setup by factory-resetting my router (necessary due to bad ISP), which resulted in it going out of bridge mode and thus firewalling all trafic. Silly me forgot that it would do that, so I was unable to fix it until inspiration struck me right now. 😭

On the other hand I replaced my Nginx reverse-proxy with caddyserver.com, and that is sweeet. 🤩

If you're just now realising that billionaires owning your online accounts and data, maybe you'll be happy to know of open source, distributed alternatives to these services:

Facebook ➡️ diaspora or Friendica
(Friendica is part of the #fediverse, ie. federates with Mastodon)

Instagram ➡️ Pixelfed (part of the fediverse)

YouTube ➡️ Peertube (part of the fediverse)

Google apps (docs/calendar/contacts) ➡️ Nextcloud (can integrate with the fediverse via plug-in)

WhatsApp/Telegram ➡️ Matrix or Tox or Session
(No, not Signal. Its users are locked in to centralised servers)

Medium ➡️ Writefreely or Plume (both fediverse)

Let me know if I forgot something you might want replaced!

Vigtigt at få på plads - forskeren bag det nye har ellers haft travlt med at sige, at alle misforstod #gladsaxemodellen: ''DataTech har derfor kontaktet Politiken og fået adgang til den fulde dokumentation, som lå til grund for den artikel, der satte gang i debatten i marts 2018. Heraf fremgår det at der var tale om en pointmodel''

The battles we’re fighting for our privacy aren’t just to make our phones and computers private places today. They’re to keep our homes, cars, and minds private places in the future. They’re to protect our personhood and stave off autocracy.

Quick reminder to the Fediverse:

The action group @reclaimyourface is collecting signatures for a Europea Citizen's Initiative (ECI) to ban #BiometricMassSurveilance

This is an important cause while more surveillance is in the making online and offline, with data science techniques available to mine mass data.
