Hello! Looking for hardware for measuring indoor air quality 💨 🏠 💨 One of our housemates has allergies we're trying to track down... Hardware must detect:
- particulate matter (e.g. PM 2.5 & 10)
- volatile organic compounds (specifically wood volatiles like turpentine)

Should be as open as possible and 'affordable'. Temp. & humidity nice bonus, but not necessary. Does not need to be turn-key/can be for nerds 🤓

"The objection by the Chinese delegation limits Wikimedia’s ability to engage with WIPO and interferes with the Foundation's mission to strengthen access to free knowledge everywhere. We urge WIPO members, including China, to withdraw their objection and approve our application."

"...in my humble but correct opinion, Mozilla should be doing two things and two things only:

* Building THE reference implementation web browser, and
* Being a jugular-snapping attack dog on standards committees.
* There is no 3.

"... At this point, I assume Mozilla's voice on the standards committees has all the world-trembling gravitas of "EFF writes amicus brief.""

I haven't fully digested the arguments, but I suppose my knee-jerk reaction is, "Yeah, but that *can't* mean that five tech companies get to own the internet forever." But of course wishful thinking doesn't make for good arguments. (Although it does make for good confirmation bias!)

"Moxie Marlinspike On Decentralization" by David Rosenthal blog.dshr.org/2020/09/moxie-ma

The talk and blog post are both very interesting. I think advocates of decentralization (including myself!) should take these arguments seriously.

I still have 4 more CA ballot prepositions to research after an evening of going through ballotopedia while the family was at the beach.

Wait, how did I not know that the original actors (Daniel and Johnny) from Karate Kid are staring in Cobra Kai?!
