Pinned toot

I'm a hacker from Bosnia & Herzegovina, currently a Mozilla Open Fellow hosted by @bitsoffreedom@twitter.com.

I like to build cool stuff, regardless if it's software, articles ( r3bl.blog ), or music ( r3bl.dj ).

You can find out more about me by visiting r3bl.me

I used to be @r3bl before I've decided that it would be better for me to host my own single-user instance.

Desire from new blood to work at #Facebook is dropping off a cliff.

Facebook routinely offers jobs to graduates from top schools like Stanford. But.

The acceptance rate of those jobs has plummeted from around 90 percent in 2016 to 50 percent this year so far.

It's working. #DeleteFacebook

Hey, #Firefox-using friends—

If you lost access to your add-ons this past weekend and you tried some advice to set `xpinstall.signatures.required` to `false` in `about:config`, you should

1. install the latest update, and

2. flip that setting back to `true`.

It's important to have this setting on to help protect you against malicious extensions.

(Don't @ me about whether you personally need or want Mozilla to sign the extensions you use. Consider this toot may not be for you.)

Can we train some girl for a few years to stab climate change in the heart when it appears as if all the hope is lost?

regular reminder that anything that is protected by #DRM deserves to be pirated

There's a person out there that made an Amazon-exclusive book available on a torrent site...

...and then added a file to that same torrent that's basically an ad for Audible with a referral link.

I don't like people who find doing something without profit in mind as a far-fetched idea.

After years of insisting that DRM in HTML wouldn't block open source implementations, Google says it won't support open source implementations

@switchingsocial Brave's founder and CEO (formerly of Mozilla until ousted) donated $1,000 in support of Prop 8 in California, banning marriage equality. Not one penny should go to him.

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palantir) and on the board of Facebook.

I do not recommend using Brave.

There are certain people whose ideals you agree with, but completely dislike their approach of achieving them.

One heroic action does not mean that the person who committed it should not be held accountable for the future actions they've made in life.

If the US tried to extradite Julian Assange, that would truly be horrendous. If the UK and/or Sweden want to hold him accountable for his actions, they should do that.

One of my craziest dreams is to wake up one day in a country where when some essential service needs to go down during a workday (power, water, gas, Internet), there'd be a warning at least a week ahead.
