again, if we were all to use password managers, why keep using passwords and not move to TLS certificate based auth that we already have almost for free in HTTPS

Spent some time playing with OpenAI's GPT-2 neural net, which, delightfully, writes fan fiction and generates very suspect science facts.

Why So Shocked? Everything Has Always Been Okay If You're A Republican

You gotta love it. Morning Joe has a clip of Mike Pence speaking out in 2014 against President Barack Obama's use of executive orders in 2014:

"It would be a profound mistake for the president of the United states to overturn American immigration law with the stroke of a pen. Signing an executive order, giving a speech, barnstorming around the country defending that executive order is not leadership. I would implore the president to reconsider this path and demonstrate the kind of leadership that the American people long to see, that the administration would sit down with this newly minted Republican congress and find genuine common ground. If the president of the United States, if he were to go through with this, I think he's acting outside the consent of the government and he's not providing real leadership to solve this intractable issue facing our country the way the country would expect a leader to do."

"Wow. Things happen. You forget stuff. Does Vice President Mike Pence forget that he says that? Does he forget that's what he believed? Does he forget that's him talking about leadership and how it should be properly used as president of the United sStates? Does he forget he said that? what has happened to him?"

you ever get so tired working on the computer you can barely keep your eyes open?

I think what really disturbs me about assertions that EFF represents Big Tech is that most of that comes direct from Big Media (as far as I can tell) in order to undermine their campaigns.

When in reality their causes very much line up to our free software and anti-surveillance causes.
