Automated license-plate readers (ALPRs) have become so widespread they're now tracking the locations of millions of drivers. If police want to search ALPR databases, they should get a warrant. eff.org/deeplinks/2019/03/sear

I wrote a thing about why I believe the best and most useful decentralized applications are going to be the ones that utilize multiple protocols. I imagine a world where ActivityPub, Dat, and Secure ScuttleButt are all seen as tools in a toolbox rather than as ecosystems, and what kind of amazing software we could build with them outside of the central/corporate paradigm.

We can argue about how to achieve equality. We can disagree on the best way to improve society. But reinstating old hierarchies of power? Glorifying bigotry and bulling? That's not on the table. Even when it wears a suit.

Here's the main video on this, good stuff. Do not assume everyone else values equality, or humanity youtube.com/watch?v=agzNANfNlT

I don't believe in natural hierarchy, and I don't believe that might makes right. But when I encounter people who do, I humor them—by placing them below me.

Before I go:

Let A = 1 + 2 + 4 + 8 + 16 + ...

Multiply both sides by 2. Now
2A = 2 + 4 + 8 + 16 + ...

Clearly 2A = A - 1, which means that A = -1 (since -1 - 1 = -2, which is 2 * -1). But just as clearly, A is a positive sum.

Therefore -1 is positive.
