Attention #Mastodon sysadmins! A new release with some security fixes will drop on Thursday, prepare to upgrade -- we'll release 2.9.x, 3.0.x, and 3.1.x versions to make sure you have the easiest time upgrading for this.

Logic is now on ! You can follow us at logic.camp/@logic.

New to the decentralized web? We have a great interview with @tinysubversions@twitter.com about decentralized social media in our upcoming Security issue. In the meantime, check out his guide: runyourown.social/

this cross-posting was super simple to set up using @renatolond's Twitter to Mastodon service! it also posts from Masto to Twitter, but we won't be using it for that.

service: crossposter.masto.donte.com.br
code: github.com/renatolond/mastodon

Renato is also responsible for local-only posting, which my instance runs via Hometown—thank you for all the cool things!

for those interested, I just set up an official Logic Magazine fediverse account!

it'll be mostly cross-posts from our Twitter account, but there may be some original content.

give it a follow at: @logic

I found this digitized interview with a worker on Community Memory (public bulletin board system in Berkeley/SF in 70-80s) from Processed World!

I didn't realize it was online—last saw in print in the SFPL's special collections (they have every issue of Processed World at the main branch—a gem).

my coworker gave a great breakdown of how my team at work is helping clear marijuana convictions in California, how it impacts folks with records, and how petition-based expungement isn't cutting it—govs need to automate

also I'm happy to finally have something to share that clearly talks about what we've done to help with AB1793! no ML, no AI (depending on how you define it). just good ol' spreadsheets in, good ol' spreadsheets out, with a little algorithm in between.

heading to today! anyone else?

also let me know if you’re around and want to talk jobs at Code for America—we’re hiring for our first security engineer! more details here: linkedin.com/posts/chartsock_s
