Hey friends, we just finished a 6h walk with about 600m elevation from #badWiessee to #lenggries
We walked some new and some well known trails. Enjoyed the sound of a stream and also cleaned up nature a bit.
Oh and everything by foot or public transport (train and bus). We've be…

A peaceful trail winds through a dense forest, surrounded by towering trees and lush greenery. The ground is covered in a mix of brown dirt and vibrant green grass, creating a natural carpet underfoot. Sunlight filters through the canopy above, casting dappled shadows on the path. The scene is serene and untouched, with no signs of human presence except for the well-worn trail. The forest is a mix of deciduous and evergreen trees, creating a diverse and rich ecosystem. This tranquil woodland se…
A serene scene of a stream gently flowing through a lush forest is depicted in this image. The forest is filled with various shades of green from the trees and plants surrounding the stream. A large rock covered in vibrant green moss sits in the middle of the stream, adding to the natural beauty of the landscape. The water is clear and reflects the surrounding trees and sky. The overall atmosphere is peaceful and tranquil, making it a perfect spot for relaxation and contemplation. The image cap…
A middle-aged man with a grey sun hat and a backpack is captured in the image. He is standing outdoors, surrounded by trees and mountains in the background. The man is smiling and appears to be on a hiking adventure, equipped with hiking gear. He is wearing casual outdoor clothing and sunglasses. The dominant colors in the image are grey, with a blue accent color. The man's face is visible and he is wearing a hat with a wide brim. The image also includes a close-up of a camera. The man is the m…

#30DaysOfBiking, Day 14: Met with @… at the #Schluchsee concrete dam. After having a drink there, he walked and I cycled slowly (5km/h) beside him half around …

Multiple cairns on a tree stump. A lake and a hill with a forest in the background.
View through a forest alongside a creek ending in a lake.
A calm creek flowing through a flat valley with fresh meadows on both side. Still a lots of brown ground visible.
A forest way with a long shadow of a cyclist on its ground.

Please, please think about the language you use and that you let others use in front of you. If you don’t call out derogatory words about people who are somehow regarded as different, hate is normalised and you’re complicit.
I was having a drink on a warm spring evening – then a nail bomb exploded just feet away

So, today, a lot of folk are talking about how a very bad man named Sean Hastings has been violently threatening Adam Shostack for years and years.
 
I know Adam and think of him as a friend and we are connected professionally and personally, and of course I knew about Sean Hastings, but I was unaware that today was the day that Adam was going to finally talk about his nightmare, and he didn't ask me to say anything about my own experiences with Sean or coordinate with me on this.
 
I can't speak to Adam's experience but I do feel the need to tell people what Sean Hastings did to me.
 
The first thing Sean Hastings did to me was give me money in 2015. I didn't know him. You can actually see his name right in the front of the acknowledgements to my book on women in tech - because he contributed $500 to the 2015 Kickstarter I ran to fund it.
 
This is before I'd met Adam Shostack; Adam and I met in early 2016 when we sat on a Federal Trade Commission panel together in Seattle on startup cybersecurity. Adam's a major nerd and we bonded immediately over game design and his incorrect preference of Star Wars over Star Trek.
 
But soon, I would find out that there were strings attached to Sean's contribution. Apparently he thought that by contributing to a Kickstarter, he could turn guilt screws on me about who I could talk to, and demanded my time to help him publish books on girls in tech.
 
He began sending me harassing messages and emails after I'd probably RTed something from Adam, demanding that I pay attention to his claims about Adam Shostack. I did what any normal femme in tech does, which is go do the grey network check on Adam. In 2016, I spoke to several extremely prominent and trusted friends and members of the infosec community. The “Good Guy vs. Creeper” check on Adam came back from my folk with a resounding "Adam's the victim here". And I know some serious operators in the "keeping women in the infosec world safe" space.
 
Sean subsequently began publicly and privately bombarding my social accounts and email with demands and guilt and claiming that he was behind my success and funded me. This looked to me like a man who tries to control women and others with money, and I would wear out the red flag emoji if I tried to properly emphasize that. There's plenty more on Xitter if you want to go searching.
 
I didn't and don't want to think about this, any more than anyone else wants to think about awful things, but violent angry dangerous men like Sean do seem to operate on their own schedule, and I anticipate that Adam's public statement may trigger Sean Hastings making another outburst against me and the many other people I'm now seeing coming forward.
 
One last thing. I've experienced some of the same kinds of horrific stalker behavior that Adam and others in the community have, and while it's not relevant to this here, Adam was a profound support to me when my life was getting torn apart by two very dangerous, angry, violent people making false claims about me several years ago. He knows exactly what it feels like, because I think he's lived it for a couple of decades.
 
So, it occurs to me that I've actually continued to benefit from that $500 that Sean Hastings contributed to that Kickstarter. In my experience, it makes people apoplectic to learn that their money went to something that they hate. So, below, you'll find some screenshots, and the last image is my proof pic for a $500 donation just now to Operation: Safe Escape, which supports victims of cyber stalking and domestic tech abuse like those Sean Hastings has targeted. That makes me feel a lot better and I didn't even realize I was carrying any guilt over it until just now.
 
safeescape.org/ I strongly urge you to donate there as well if you were affected by this.

Lovely message from Basil's humans (used with permission as a testimonial). Harder work than a greyhound but a good experience. 😀

A screenshot of a message from a chat app reading:

Hey Andy hope you're doing well! Have been meaning to drop you a message but have been busy since being back. Thank you again for looking after Basil on our holiday! He's obviously been well taken care of and we really appreciated the peace of mind. Hope to ask for your help again in the future :)

Hi friends!
Legs were a bit sore today so we chose a #cycling day. Not much elevation end also not very fast but 2h of nice #mountainbiking to the #sylvenstein for a beautiful view.

A serene lake is captured in the image, with majestic mountains towering in the background. The scene is set under a clear blue sky with fluffy white clouds adding a touch of tranquility to the landscape. Surrounding the lake are trees and a building, creating a picturesque view of nature's beauty. The mountains in the distance are part of a snow-capped range, enhancing the overall scenic beauty of the location.

Hey, just a snap from last week's hike with friends. The weather was really awesome and we just had a great time together.
Lots of talking, lots of enjoying nature. It was really a very nice day together in the mountains.

A serene scene unfolds in front of us as we gaze upon a small house nestled in a vast field. The landscape is dotted with lush green grass and tall trees, with majestic mountains looming in the background. The sky above is a tranquil blue, scattered with fluffy white clouds. The composition is harmonious and peaceful, evoking a sense of solitude and nature's beauty. The colors are predominantly earthy tones, with grey and black hues dominating the foreground and accentuated by a vibrant green a…
