The Deep Web Explained by Keanu Reeves on Vimeo

“Dark Net” is a very misleading name. Above video sums it up pretty nicely, the “Dark Net” Tor was designed and is mainly used for good. Good — as in ethically good, but not necessarily good for spying and monitoring agencies (of all colors).

I do not support or approve illegal activities, of course. Not a contradiction, I do fully and actively support Tor since many years and will continue to do so!

I am not endorsing this with a link to the Amazon Dash buttons. Go see for yourself.

NPM & left-pad: Have We Forgotten How To Program? | Haney Codes .NET

Oh, yes, this is so bizarre…
Why would a programmer with self respect even publish a “module” like those? Not even mentioning the lemmings depending on that.

No, I want to go one step further: avoid frameworks if feasible. You always win on that.
