Cut to 2025 when people start waking up to ring flying drones hovering in their bedrooms unannounced.
So @pyrmont made this cool app Flext for processing text. I’m testing the iOS version and I wrote a processor for kebab-case using Textastic. This is how I like to title files: cross-platform plus on webservers the paths stay the same as the filename.
A pair of timely articles to counter deceptive propaganda that suggests destroying the working class is somehow good for the economy. First up, Steven Rattner on Trump’s lies about dwindling jobs, handouts to the ultra-rich, and the exploding deficit.
To: email@example.com Subject: Attempted lynching of Bloomington man at Lake Monroe
It is your duty to see the offenders in this attempted lynching arrested and brought to justice.
This is obviously a hate crime and should be treated as such.
In Booker’s own words:
Two of them jumped me from behind and knocked me to the ground. I tussled with the two and another one joined in, then two more. The five were able to easily overwhelm me and got me to the ground and dragged me pinning my body against a tree as they began pounding on my head and ripped off some of my hair, with several of them still on top of my body holding me down. They held me pinned and continued beating me for several minutes seemingly become more and more enraged as they kept trying to seriously injure me and failing. At one point during the attack one of the men jumped on my neck. I could feel both his feet and his full bodyweight land hard against my neck.
At this point the commotion and the sounds one of the men’s young teenage daughter screaming for her father and the others to let me go started attracting more people, (most whom I didn’t know) who started attempting to intervene. The attackers told the growing group, “we’re going to break his arms” (while literally attempting to bend my arms behind me) and then stated to the members of their party several times to, “get a noose”, amongst some other choice slurs. With me still pinned underneath them they kept telling onlookers to leave the, “boy” and that everyone else (all white) could go. Folks then started filming the confrontation, and shouting that they wouldn’t leave me to be killed.
Imagine this happening to you. Imagine the rage you would feel if:
When DNR eventually arrived they didn’t contact us to ensure that no one was injured, instead they went directly to speak with the other individuals (attackers) first. When they finally came to the beach near our campsite where we were all waiting, multiple individuals who didn’t know each other shared videos and relayed that the individuals had yelled “white power” and a litany of other derogatory remarks, and threatened my life multiple times, and also assaulted an approximately 60 year old man who stopped to film the encounter. Yet DNR refused to arrest any of these individuals, even with multiple the witnesses several who filmed the event and collaborated our accounts. Instead the officers stated they contacted the Prosecutor’s office who relayed there was no immediate need to arrest anyone, and that the officers would simply file a report.
Bloomington we’ve had three public incidents involving overtly racists individuals who were then backed by the police within a month. Are we going to wait for a Black person to be lying dead in the gutter before we act? When is enough actually enough?
So simply charging the racist lynch mob with assault and attempted murder is not enough in this case. Your office should work to ensure that the officers who responded to this call are relieved of duty, and their superiors held accountable for their inaction and dereliction of their responsibility to public safety.

“Our clients are the only detained children we know of who ICE is insisting on deporting even though: 1) they have a parent in the U.S. who ORR recommends they be reunified with, 2) they have no parent or other relative in their home country who can take care of them, and 3) they are really, really young — only 8 and 11,” Syed said.

Manton and Daniel talk about iA Writer’s new support for publishing directly to Micro.blog, and segue in to a conversation about the pragmatism of trying to improve SEO for pertinent terms such as “Micropub” and “WordPress.”
Often, while building a website, clients and designers will ask something like:
Will you make the links open in a new tab so we don’t take people off the site?
I’ve concluded that open hardware is precisely as trustworthy as closed hardware. Which is to say, I have no inherent reason to trust either at all. While open hardware has the opportunity to empower users to innovate and embody a more correct and transparent design intent than closed hardware, at the end of the day any hardware of sufficient complexity is not practical to verify, whether open or closed. Even if we published the complete mask set for a modern billion-transistor CPU, this “source code” is meaningless without a practical method to verify an equivalence between the mask set and the chip in your possession down to a near-atomic level without simultaneously destroying the CPU.
Let’s take some privacy back. If Spectrum is your internet service provider you should take a minute to go here and opt-out of everything. If you have a different ISP, reply with the correct link for them.

💬 “The history of the U.S., the history of Americans, is the history of reconciling the unreconcilable: individual freedom & community freedom. There is no way to reconcile the enduring psyche of the slaveholder with the enduring psyche of the enslaved.” – Ibram X. Kendi
