The small, sprightly, and public-minded public interest internet has always been where the benefits of the internet have been concentrated. They’re the internet’s mammalian survivors, waiting to take back control when the tech giants are history. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2021/05/introducing-public-interest-internet
Do you use Jamf to manage your Macs? Do you have a policy ensuring that all the latest OS updates are applied? Yeah, well, turns out that it doesn't work on M1 Macs: https://www.jamf.com/jamf-nation/discussions/37974/how-are-we-supposed-to-manage-big-sur-updates-on-the-m1-macs-now
This was just confirmed to be the case by our support rep just now. If you use Jamf to manage M1 Macs, the OS update policy flat out doesn't work and you have to use remote commands to push the updates.
Hope you weren't counting on that.
Kid stuff: Buy out the vaccine patents.

Field Notes, Terran Expedition 6, Chief Archivist Blaxarll:
"Terran life took a sudden dramatic shift after the fall of Hominid dominance. The turning point appears to have occured when the sacrificial demands of Blockchain worship spiraled out of control after fuel-based offerings were supplanted by info storage based offerings. This, in and of itself, was not terribly harmful, but the model was used by the Cult of Aquaricoin. The so-called Water Miners enshrined a marketplace for non-fungible indulgences depicting popular figures. This was backed by a *Proof of Potable Water* algorithmic catechism, and swiftly resulted in total extinction for the species.
It is this researcher's opinion that we are fortunate the Terran Hominids had only just discovered space travel, for they very well could have extinguished the resources of our own homeworlds for such religious decadence."
