PSA: Do Not Use Services That Hate The Internet. As you look around for a new social media platform, I implore you, only use one that is a part of the World Wide Web. tl;dr avoid Hive and Post. If posts in a social media app do not have URLs that can...

Redox OS has received another large anonymous donation of about 80,000 USD. This donation did not come through Tornado Cash and therefore no sanctions apply, and it can be immediately used.

TheoretiCS, a new diamond-open-access journal in all areas of theoretical computer science:
