Blockchain study finds 0.00% success rate and vendors don't call back when asked for evidence

“Though Blockchain has been touted as the answer to everything, a study of 43 solutions advanced in the international development sector has found exactly no evidence of success.”

Man, it seems so bad you’d almost think I’d have a slide warning people about blockchain oil salesmen (they’re almost entirely men) in my talks or something…

Mastodon :mastodon: security:

Additionally to the vulnerabilities discussed here [1], there are two other vulnerabilities fixed in Mastodon 2.5.2:

– nokogiri (1.8.5)
– XSS vulnerability

The remaining question: How many instances are vulnerable this time and remain vulnerable for weeks/months?

It's finally here! v1.0 of Toot! has been officially released on the app store!

itunes.apple.com/us/app/toot/i

For those who have not been in on the beta test already, this is an Mastodon client for iOS, full of character and whimsy. It is multi-instance, multi-account, it is fast, it is comfortable and it is above all a lot of fun!

It has a strong focus on user experience, animation, and attention to detail, as well as being the best client for Mastodon around. Try it now!

Mastodon :mastodon: security:

In August, Mastodon 2.4.4 was released which contains two fixes for security vulnerabilities.

Today, 39.5% of all Mastodon instances which show their version number are still running vulnerable Mastodon < 2.4.4.

We already checked this twice:

– 10/1/18: 42% vulnerable
– 8/23/18: 38.6% vulnerable

Either the remaining instances are all unmaintained or admins refuse to update.

...at least it's consistent. 2 out of 2! Again the display in the ICE gets stuck. 227km/h displayed while we are waiting in a station 🤦🏻‍♂️ social.bankmann.name/media/DYO

Google translate and lockers apparently became self aware and are now fighting money-making schemes at museums! 🤣 social.bankmann.name/media/7O7

And of course why should the order of the trains on the sign match the order or the trains on the tracks... 🤷‍♂️

Ahh, nothing like Deutsche Bahn...
One display shows nothing, the other the wrong train number and 156km/h while sitting in a train station. 👍 social.bankmann.name/media/o2C

So happy about this icon for @tootapp that I finally managed to put together.

My favorite IBM design though is their 1980s cloth-bound manuals, designed by Massimo Vignelli. These are a joy to use and to look at.

Amazing video about game design and development tricks in crazily limited amounts of RAM.

Holy crap. Malware hidden in a strand of DNA hijacks the computer that analyzes that particular gene sequence.

We're going to live in a very weird world man.
