Hi gang! From September, I'll have a room available in my flat in Berlin. It is situated in Schoneberg, close to the S-Ring. The room is in a 62sqm flat with all modern amenities (fridge, washing machine, dish washer, internet etc.)

The room is furnished with a huge closet, double bet, desk and chair, nightstand and I can lend some sheets, pillows and blanket if needed.

Far out, the irony when you click a Masto profile in a notification and read "FOSS-bros can f*** off"... Mastodon's technology is built on AGPL and multiple stepping-stone projects and protocols over many years by FOSS advocates. They suffered years of being ignored and ridiculed before Mastodon grew on what they made. I'll be first in line to critique FS fundamentalism but honestly... a little respect for those whose uncompromising grit gave us the opportunities we have today would be nice.

If you're thinking about taking photos at #cccamp2019 please consider the photo-policy:

events.ccc.de/camp/2019/wiki/S

Ask -everybody- in the picture if they agree to be photographed or filmed.

It follows that shots from the stage into the audience and long shots in the hackcenters, villages and the other public areas are not possible!

Please note that we might ask photographers and film teams to leave, if they don't behave accordingly.

Anyone knows a shop in Berlin that sells CO2 regulators and bottles for beer taps? Asking for a friend. Totally not planning to distribute lots of delicious hop juice at .

Benefit of having a twin sister: she's going to check out laser eye surgery options, and if she does it, and it works on my almost-DNA-equal guinea sis, I'll let the clinic just do the exact same thing to my eyes.

is almost here. Getting excited. Lots of friends arriving in Berlin this weekend.

Statism 

That book, btw, is amazing for a lot of realistic near-future hard sci-fi scenarios.

So basically, things are playing out exactly as foreseen in Daniel Suarez's book Change Agent a couple years ago. Looking forward to Singapore becoming the Silicon Valley of biotech then.

So, I just got my new #Chromebook and I bricked it within 2 hours 😂. This thread will discuss my immediate experiences and suggestions. If you know someone on the #ChromeOS team, please pass this along so they can open the relevant issues...

Slowly re-building my #rss reader after years of not using it.

Any of y'all blog about stuff that you do? I'd love to read about it over coffee in the mornings.
