Medical Info, TERFS 

Thought 3 painful tries to get a cannula in my hand while having a CT scan would be the low point today. But no! It was the woman in the loo at Sainsbury's who cornered me, demanding to know what I thought about "this trans nonsense". I hope she enjoyed being told she's a bigot.

Anyone else always start a project in a state of "argh, how will I ever do this? 😬" Then about two weeks in there's the "oh wait, yup, I see how this will work" moment?

Just had that moment. Today is a good day 🎉😌

At Tim Gollins is talking about "The A's of Computer Security" in the 1980s, the concepts that cyber security was centered on for a long time:

- Authentication -> proving who you are
- Authorization -> proving you have right
- Access Control -> allowing you to get to information
- Availability -> you can get information when you need it
- Audit -> recording what you did and when
- Assurance -> gaining confidence in the functionality
- Accreditation -> demonstrating things are secure

Don't forget that tomorrow is a Friday on Designated Communities!

We've brought this forward to accommodate the holiday period.

Come along 16 Dec, 1400 UTC, for an informal discussion on this topic! All are welcome:

This afternoon, we're getting ready to welcome participants and speakers along to our much anticipated & Cyber Security Event which starts in less than an 1 hour at 1400 UTC.

please boost/RT! the Queer Metadata Collective is looking for descriptive / catalog policies relating to marginalized communities, individuals, & their works from #galleries #libraries #archives #museums and #speccolls (#GLAMS).

these will be used by QMDC to aggregate and build on individual policies to collective recommendations. policies don't have to be queer specific! internal or external policies welcome, internal ones will not be redistributed without your permission. #critcat #critlib
