  • Just how bad is the bot situation at Twitter?  (The Register)

    It appears that Twitter was sabotaging Elon Musk's attempts to determine the numbers himself, and they are being very cagey with the numbers themselves. 

    Twitter will likely claim it was unintentional.  I'd say no-one could be that incompetent, but this is Twitter we're talking about.

  • Elasticsearch is the QNAP of databases.  (Bleeping Computer)

    Mangatoon (who) got breached and the details of 23 million users exfiltrated, including auth tokens from social networks.

    I think if you run Elasticsearch on a QNAP NAS the universe might spontaneously reboot.


  • Netflix to staff: Shut up and do your jobs.  (The Verge)
    In the Google doc, one person commented, "In Ted’s email to directors, he calls out that Dave Chappelle is ‘one of our most popular comedians today’ and his last special is ‘our most watched, stickiest, and award winning stand up special to date.’ My interpretation of this message is that sticky metrics outweigh the possibility of harm. Is that a fair interpretation of that email?”

    Days passed, and the question remained unanswered.

    The answer is, shut up and do your job.  Or don't.  You can be replaced.  Probably by a hamster.
