I've finished a blog post about Brave's false privacy. I give you arguments that will prevent yourself from falling for Brave’s marketing lies.

Wishing @davidrevoy a very happy birthday! Grateful for his friendship, courage, and generosity.


No one but me will need to now any of this- users of the library won't need to know or care, but there's a Store, which is a collection of data. Stores connect to Clients via Transports (HTTP, or Bluetooth, or filesystem, LevelDB, or whatever).

Clients may also need to be future proof through accepting multiple Suites.

Adding this "Transport" abstraction cleans up the way both Stores connect to other stores, and Clients connect to stores.

This morning I was struggling with how to write some Datashards code, and I decided to make a diagram. When I did, the complexity began to melt away when I started adding two new abstractions. Suddenly everything fit nicely.


Thankfully, and by the most narrow of margins, a Black Jewish Woman is able to keep her position as leader of the Green Party of Canada, despite attacks from opposition trying to drive wedge issues (primarily around her Judaism) and oust her from power.

nyc, racism, sad. funny ending(?) 

This is an oldie, but New Yorkers take racism seriously.


I do love the GoFundMe to send a Mariachi band...

Thanks French for making the adjective and noun of this word identical minus an accent.

It's not confusing at all to have it say sugar, no sugar.

politics, middle east 

Hamas has broken the cease fire by sending children's balloons filled with explosives (so when a child picks it up, they are blown up).

Then they fired rockets, and so now the IDF has responded.

This was to be expected now that the new Israeli coalition government has come in. Hamas can't stand the idea of a representative Israeli government.


I wish this guy hadn't given away all the secrets in purchasing dice! ;)


canpol, racism, police 

The Canadian police are, on the whole, a lot less corrupt than US police, but it seems one Vancouver officer is butthurt at the mere idea of systemic racism.

This is a shame because all the encounters I've had with the Vancouver police have been incredibly above board and professional. There's always one I guess...


antisemtisism, human rights 

Since this has gotten more attention than most of my posts on antisemitism, then let me also make it very clear.

If your idea of helping the Palestinians is "Destroy Israel" or "Kill Jews" or BDS, or "I'm not racist, I'm Jewish Critical" any of that, kindly go fuck yourself.

Israel has finally created a coalition government without Bibi. This is no small feat, and while the PM will be an extreme conservative, there are provisions to keep everyone in line.

What this won't mean is any radical departure in policies. It can't because the coalition is so broad, and so fragile, with Arab parties, far left parties, religious parties, etc.

But it also means a potential new start and opportunity to live Bibi-free for the first time in a long while.

I am delighted to launch the 'Libre Tech Shop' - a unique shop for products that respect your freedom to learn, hack, extend and do things yourself.

Check out the online shop at:


The background story behind this launch:


Here - you'll be able to buy liberated computers, hackable mechanical keyboards, private and secure home automation solutions, wireless routers, spare parts and much more.

antisemtisism, human rights 

Hey folks, if you think that supporting the rights of Palestinians is incompatible with supporting Israelis or Jews, kindly fuck off.

Supporting human rights is supporting human rights.

I primarily talk about antisemitism because in the circles I travel in, the progressive left, antisemitism isn't often spoken about or acknowledged- but I am equally sensitive to the plight of the Palestinians and their desire for self-sovereignty and safety.

racism, antisemitism, erasure 

Al Jazeera is apparently unsatisfied with simply claiming Israel shouldn't exist, now they're claiming my wife and her family don't exist, erasing thousands of years of culture.

I know some of you folks on the left take Al Jazeera for "news". They're the same sort of "news" as Brietbart.


joke, "you're making it worse, Serge!" 

I think @davidrevoy overworries about his accent and being interviewed. His English is just fine.

But then again... children's books...



A lot of people talk about being ADHD, but fewer talk about being learning disabled. I'm ADHD, Learning Disabled and also "Gifted" (which just means I have a high IQ in spots).

The problem is when I don't 100% get something, I can be stuck on it, and then anxiety kicks in and it can get me very stuck for an extended period, as it is right now as I'm debugging some code I wrote months ago, but was apparently broken.

Bigger than the bug is the anxiety of it being broken and me not fixing it.


And I guess I'd say I'll see you soon
But the truth is that I see you now
Still talk to you like you're around
And I guess I say you left too soon
But the truth is that you never left
'Cause I never let myself forget
