"Don’t adults bully other adults, too?" a student asked, as we were in a pivot from the positives of digital work to the dark corners of online bullying behaviors.

"Yes, adults bully other adults, and it's terrible," I tell him, "so don't be like them. Make the world a better place." #smallstories

I will also be telling you about how important it is to have DNS names with shortish TTLs so that you can change the A to a server with an older TLS stack.

Sit back, shut up, and listen.

Dear internet, please stop making videos to tell me things that could be adequately explained in one paragraph of text.

Fit bits are just Tamagotchis for adults but turns out you're the blob you're trying to keep alive.

Aaaand now ARTCILE19 used the word "hackers" to mean cybercriminals.

And now they're talking about "criminalization of tech skills", which happens *because* people use "hacker" to mean "cybercriminal".

Eh, come on.
