many of my academia colleagues seem to dislike teaching. personally I much prefer teaching than the pressure to publish just because, the fetishization of ‘original research’. I'd be a happy girl teaching daily and publishing at will.

I think it does better for the world, too. if we put more energy into good teaching and less into article quantity we'd have more article quality.

Been following the Main Street Phoenix Project, which seems to be circling its focus in on launching a restaurant group to acquire COVID-shuttered restaurants.

Will be learning more next week when one of them presents to the Solidarity Investing Club.

"What does freedom mean in an academic economy structured to reward obedience? No thinking person buys the myth of merit. Academe is filled with mediocrities who achieved stardom by flattering the ruling class. Already, then, freedom is tenuous because livelihood is contingent on respectability, itself contingent on pleasing the ruling elite. Cultures of online exchange promise a kind of freedom, but more than anything they illuminate the preponderance of coercion."

Wow, some very interesting new research here: tpm.fail/

Researchers published attacks that can recover encryption keys from Trusted Computing Modules (TPMs) (which isn't supposed to be possible) by timing elliptic curve signature generation. "On Intel fTPM, our key recovery succeeds after about1,300 observations and in less than two minutes."

Nearly all Windows computers store BitLocker encryption keys in TPMs.

Because I was unclear on the role of private insurance in Bernie's plan:

* restricts "duplicative" private insurance, meaning private insurers cannot compete with what Medicare For All covers
* allows supplemental private insurance for things not covered.

regular reminder that "user friendly" also implies that it actually runs on older hardware and still leaves room for other applications

Why isn’t it easier to find nice free coloring pages to print out? the internet really should have solved this thoroughly. When your kid says “I want to color monster trucks with you” you should be like 3 minutes away from saying “mine is called Truckula, I gave it red wheels and it turns into a bat”
