I mostly write about security and such, but every now and again I get to churn out a massive story about how to quit Twitter and start a new life here on Masto. I tried to cover as many bases as possible, but lmk if I missed anything really important!

Medieval diseases are spreading across California’s homeless population:

Los Angeles recently experienced an outbreak of typhus—a disease spread by infected fleas on rats and other animals—in downtown streets. Officials briefly closed part of City Hall after reporting that rodents had invaded the building.

Prevention of these diseases is largely related to sanitation, rather than vaccines (there is a vaccine called BCG that prevents tuberculosis, but it’s not typically used in the US), so it’s not directly related to anti-vax concerns, but it is alarming none-the-less.

Thank you to the awesome attendees of @socallinuxexpo for voting us most passionate .org! We’re so lucky to have amazing supporters who stand behind our work.

We are truly honored! #SCaLE17x

"We are told that cars are about freedom of choice. But every aspect of this assault on our lives is assisted by state planning and subsidy. Roads are built to accommodate projected traffic, which then grows to fill the new capacity. Streets are modelled to maximise the flow of cars. Pedestrians and cyclists are squeezed by planners into narrow and often dangerous spaces"

Federation is for Frank personally an important feature
