"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

-- Emma Lazarus

I don't have much to say yet other than...

Fuck the fucking Nazis and those who enable them.

There has been an accident and a family member is in hospital, requiring 24/7 attention and care. I had to travel to my hometown and I will be here for a while.

I'll keep checking on things periodically here.

An interactive fiction/adventure game about: environment, disinformation, whistleblowing, feminism, hacking (also lockpicking!), organizing, etc.

It's funny and deep. The characters are so cool! Great politics! Spot on! <3

Oh, and fantastic music! Some wild #chiptune epic!

Gameplay is friendly, never (too) punitive. Had to play it to the end!

@vertigo I found a Digilent Nexys 2 too, which is a bit more serious dev board, but probably undesirable for open source work since most enthusiasts won't probably be able to get their hands on one of these.

@vertigo I found this one available locally for not an exorbitant amount of money. What do you think of the specs?

Privacy campaigners bid to beat police facial recognition plans by wearing ‘dazzle’ makeup

Wearing makeup has long been seen as an act of defiance, from teenagers to New Romantics. Now that defiance has taken on a harder edge, as growing numbers of people use it to try to trick facial recognition systems.

Interest in so-called dazzle camouflage appears to have grown substantially since the Metropolitan police announced last week that officers will be using live facial recognition cameras on London’s streets – a move described by privacy campaigners and political activists as “dangerous”, “oppressive” and “a huge threat to human rights”.
