Mask report: Jersey City (practically part of NYC), last night in 7-Eleven: a regular customer and a cop (not together) weren't wearing a mask and no one cared. Sign on the door still says mask is required.

State mask rule cancelled about a week ago.

7-Eleven is the exception, so far. I went in other retail businesses and the mask rule was posted, and everyone put on a mask to enter.

Watching corporate infosec training…

Thinking about icons -- it occurs to me that it's interesting that the standard icon for a digitally "secured" thing is a closed padlock 🔒 .

This device is widely used and easily defeated. The only real security it provides are a social contract (please don't mess with the locked thing) and evidence that it has been forced open (if it has been cut, or if you disassemble it and examine it under a microscope).

Actually that kinda matches computer security.

Doing my annual mandatory corporate infosec training. I'm not sure if it's annoying or amusing.

n-gate reads HN so I don't have to.

@progo how long before they fill out the vaccine cards and throw the shots away?

It's de facto legal to shoplift in San Francisco. So far 17 Walgreens stores have closed, and lots of other retailers.

Tim Pool's chat show, 26 minute segment.

If you run a Google browser or a Google OS (even if it's customized by a phone vendor), then Google IS tracking your device's location. All the time. Doesn't matter one bit what you set in Settings.

You knew this, though, already.

People of the NAS. Listen to me good because I'm only going to toot this once.

Please stop posting links with no context. NOBODY is likely to click on a youtube link that says "Watch this". Or WORSE just a url to youtube.

If you want people to click your link, give it context so people have some idea of what they're likely to see if they click your link. Otherwise they're just going to scroll on past. (They may even mute you or block you just for spite!)

Over the weekend I visited a certain No Agenda producer in Shenandoah Valley, Virginia. It's so green there! It felt great to visit a crowded tourist attraction without a mask. Also we checked out the James Madison Univ. Arboretum, and hiked in a couple of parks.

If you're in a blue city, go visit a friend in fly-over country for some fresh air!

Life Insurance and Covid19; Something doesn’t make sense

• I asked her specifically if life insurers wanted a Covid test as part of the underwriting process and she said none that she was aware of. Hmm, that’s pretty interesting isn’t it?
• I also asked if the cost per thousand of coverage had increased due to Covid and again she said no

I will never stop being amazed by the typos and poor grammar I see in applications for a professional writing job.
