Folks, for years: We have a problem called Surveillance Capitalism, it’s a systemic problem arising from socio-economic factors…

Ex-Googler: Hmm, this problem, very exotic… what shall I call it without criticising either surveillance or capitalism? Time well spent?

Folks: SURVEILLANCE CAPITALISM! It’s the feedback loop between accumulation of information (surveillance) and accumulation of wealth (capitalism)

Ex-Googler: …human downgrading?

Looking for SWE / tech work again. Aiming for increase of human well-being without negative impact of modern tech. I have 15+ yrs experience, and want to wield it for the benefit of more people outside the investor class.

I already have offers, so if you have ideas about this, please let me know quick! If you want to talk about this more, please get in touch.

Thought of the day: everyone praises that being a developer is easy cuz there's so much work around, but it's so damn hard to find something that doesn't corrupt your soul, smashes your ethics and doesn't compromise your morals. Ignoring that yeah, there's lots of jobs around 🙄

does SSL even protect users now that most of the CAs are also hosting or reverse proxy companies

side-note: we need to have a serious audit / checklist of the authz + authn of the options we have for the #indieweb / #fediverse so we can give new projects / dev GOOD suggestions
