How to be safe(r) online

This is a great set of articles from The Verge. I will be sharing with others to help them manage this New World (that they have been living on but without understanding).

'There are a lot of ways things can go wrong online. Password databases get breached, personal data gets leaked, and trackers pop up where we least expect them. We don’t like to dwell on the bad side of the internet because we want technology to be fun — but there’s a lot of hard, careful work happening to get you there.

So this week, we’re putting together a guide to protecting yourself online. Some of it is basic hygiene — how to set up two-factor authentication, how to block tracking pixels in your email, and so on — but there are also a few more exotic problems in the mix, like Dogecoin scammers or the quantum security apocalypse. Taken together, it’s a full-spectrum reminder of all the things that can go wrong on the internet.

Stay safe out there.'

It is necessary and at least the option is there.

But I like pretty junk. I like graphics and fonts and all those frills of communication. It POs me royally that we have to behave like we’re in the world of Blade Runner, and run applications almost in command line interface to avoid a plethora of ah*les from trying to take advantage.

Way too many people that suck out there.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
