hacking alarm pfft, cryptome

Love this paragraph:

Yet, the sun shines on all of god’s creatures, at least those not underground, and for those sunlit it should be possible to use our brightest star to transmit to one another with unlimited brilliance and clarity our wish for them to get off our lawn, turn down the noise, be respectful, wear a mask, ratchet up blaming the opposition.

that foreign meddlin’

Things jump out at me in ordinary reading, like this: Facebook’s advertising system is exploited by foreign governments and other malevolent political actors who have had free rein to spread disinformation and discord

Yes, technically true, but it’s really “that Russia shit” dressed up another way. It’s only those “foreign” governments, not ours. It has become too big to fail.
