Happy 42nd birthday to... Spam!
On this day, in 1978, the very first spam e-mail was sent.
- The email was all in caps (seriously).
- It was sent to all ARPANET users on the West Coast.
- It was promoting a computer.
You can read the full email here:

The Swedish government has also come to the conclusion that storing personal data at a US corporation is illegal under the #GDPR #DSGVO #privacy
#gnome is under attack! Patent trolls have invaded. To better protect the world from trolls like them, they have chosen to fight instead of feed the troll. Other's are in danger of being the next target of the troll. Please give and share for #FOSS
Why can't a terminal emulator be just that? Why would you build in tmux integrations and parse stdout like that?
I really don’t understand how someone can be naive and stupid to the point of liking a big corporation. I met a guy once who liked Google so much he named his dog after it. Then today it got me thinking: as a homage this is obviously ludicrous, but suppose your dog sticks it’s nose in your bag every time you leave it within reach, checks your wardrobe when you leave it open or even snoops into your room if you don’t properly close the door... makes sense!
LinkedIn's attempts at privacy are hilarious. If you're not connected with someone called FirstName LastName, they won't show you the last name, but they will show you that:
- They are called FirstName L.;
- Someone called LastName F. viewed your profile (if they are from a country where family names go first);
- Their personal URL is firstnamelastname.

Well, this might be interesting.
Disappointing that Linus' unexpected mea culpa was in response to a press story https://www.newyorker.com/science/elements/after-years-of-abusive-e-mails-the-creator-of-linux-steps-aside (as predicted by @email@example.com, who manages the impressive feat of being even more cynical than me)
“Torvalds’s decision to step aside came after The New Yorker asked him a series of questions about his conduct for a story on complaints about his abusive behavior.” https://www.newyorker.com/science/elements/after-years-of-abusive-e-mails-the-creator-of-linux-steps-aside
