The Prisoner 001 (2018) | View Comic
Yes folks, it's a modern sequel/revival! (Although I think they have the chessboard in the wrong part of the Village, but perhaps they've relandscaped the lawn in the 52 years since we last saw it.) It's being released one episode per month, with #2 already available. Be seeing you.

Canonical shouldn’t abuse trademark law to silence critics of its privacy decisions | micahflee.com
Yes! In your FACE, Canonical. Note particularly the slew of comments from enterprise-level sysadmins who were previously unaware. I defy Unity in the name of all nature: it is a twisted abhorrence. It must die, it must die. Fixubuntu.com is a noble endeavour and has my full support, plus that of all right-thinking persons. [PS: The lawyers are coming! Micah, Flee!]

Oh great. Now you too can invite a shady social network to run its own MITM attack against you. At least they're asking first. Why would anyone agree to this?

How Target Figured Out A Teen Girl Was Pregnant Before Her Father Did | Forbes
“If we send someone a catalog and say, ‘Congratulations on your first child!’ and they’ve never told us they’re pregnant, that’s going to make some people uncomfortable[...] We are very conservative about compliance with all privacy laws. But even if you’re following the law, you can do things where people get queasy.”
