Do you happen to know where I can find the exact Creative Commons license used by the hackitat.com/ movie? It's not on the webpage, in the credits or the Indiegogo.

For the past three weeks I've kept having problems with mailbox.org - at multiple times I can't log into imap.mailbox.org or their webmail.

Have you had any experience with them or these outages?

I started a ticket for that, but they just blame my wifi.

CoAct, a Citizen Social Science organization is having an open call for proposals on Gender Equality research - up to 20kEUR per grant.

BookWyrm is a Fediverse alternative to GoodReads.

They've just opened their onboarding site at:

joinbookwyrm.com

("Onboarding" is when you make it as easy as possible for people to join something.)

BookWyrm and its instances are currently still in beta testing, but you can join now if you want to try it out. Instances marked as "closed" mean you can join but you have to request an invitation.

A student I'm mentoring really interested in software & hardware hacking just got accepted into two universities in the :

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (Computer Science)
vuweb.vu.nl/en/education/bache

Fontys University of Applied Sciences (Mechatronics)
fontys.edu/Bachelors-masters/B

Do you know anyone studying there / any alumni? Can you recommend any of these universities for someone very project-oriented?

Does a en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kessler_ make for a good story / world?

"The Space is not for us, not for the next 500 years, we must focus on fixing what we have here". A "natural" end of cultural expansionism, a powerful symbol.

Or something way too negative? What's your take?

Do I know any UI / UX designers? I'm looking for a responsive layout for a blog with an animated SVG illustration.

Paid work.

I don't mean that they don't encrypt the data at rest. I mean that even if they do, they have the access to the key to decrypt it and have access to my plaintext passwords at any point.

I don't like it.

I just got an email from Google letting me know that some passwords I saved in Chrome were leaked in a third party breach.

Luckily, I had changed the passwords for KeePassXC long ago.

Does it mean that Google keeps my passwords in plaintext though?

question: what would be the most Solarpunk / realistic / interesting way to heat a hackerspace in a city in colder climate? Something to make a story interesting & visual?

The usual answer "servers" isn't that eco

Since my blog tagline for some time was a "Solarpunk Hacker", I began playing with some solarpunk and hacking symbols to create a logo. An early draft:
