“Lehren aus den Doxing-Angriffen” ist u.a. eine gute Zusammenfassung von Schutzmaßnahmen, die man einhalten sollte, um mögliche Angriffe wesentlich schwerer zu gestalten. linus-neumann.de/2019/01/lehre

Mhm, my smart phone runs stock android (basically raw Google Android) with mostly open source apps from f-droid.

38 applications + system apps that are not from f-droid. Even the selected applications are quite "conservatively chosen" when it comes to privacy. Yesterday I Installed blokada. Today I broke the 10000 blocked requests mark.

Seriously. The Android ecosystem has a big tracking problem. (And yes I'm not the first person noticing that)

We're seeking visually impaired or blind people with coding experience who want to help ensure solid screen reader behavior in a new iteration of the CodeMirror in-browser code editor. Accessibility in the previous iteration is terrible, and I want to do better this time around.

If you're prepared to answer questions about coding while blind, or to test-drive the current prototype of the editor, please get in touch here or via marijn@haverbeke.nl

@szbalint I recently got reminded of this scifi short I wrote a 15 years ago about a dystopian future where your apartment door refuses to open because you're having friends over and the guest visitor count is over the capacity specified in your rental contract.

"Neustadt schaltet Facebook-Seite ab" und .... "nutzt jetzt lieber WhatsApp".

Kannst dir nicht ausdenken, sowas.

ist nur schlimm, wenn man noch mehr als ~30 Jahre auf diesem Planeten verbringen will. Deswegen gehen Schüler auf die Straße. Deswegen verhandeln Politiker lausige Klimaabkommen.

Just a note that Mastodon isn’t crumbling and @Gargron takes more shit for having made something good for the right reasons than anyone else I know.

@ordnung: ich konnte gerade bei liberapay Lastschrift von deutschem Konto (abgewickelt über Stripe) erfolgreich auswählen! Mit Bezug auf den Eintrag hier blog.chaos.social/2018/08/20/s (und einen kurzen Tootwechsel letzten August) wäre es sicher sinnvoll das einmal für alle anzukündigen!

If you want chaos.social stickers, now is your chance!
stickers.chaos.social.rash.cod

I have to order the stickers first and I won't be super fast with sending them out, so they might take a while to get to you. I may also stop taking new requests if it gets out of hand.

If you can, request stickers for your whole *-space / group / event.

Lastly, I'll publish the print files, so if you want A LOT of stickers, you can also order them yourselves.

YouTube ist seit einer Weile der Meinung, dass ich Werbung für Haftcreme brauche. Ich dachte, das solltet ihr wissen.

but seriously, somewhere between 2000 and 2019 the IT industry seamlessly transitioned from

"we provide precision engineering tools, your data is yours, you should not need to trust us or anyone, mathematics is your guarantee, crypto 4 ever. "

to

"give us your data. all of it. give. no secrets. hold nothing back. in return we will... train AIs on it.. and provide unspecified 'services'... for someone, who may be you... that can change at any time... and we are funded by, uh. Look, a unicorn!"

In the last week I've started moving my calendars 📆 , contacts 👫 and email ✉️ off of Google

It really feels like coming to the end of an abusive relationship 💔 It was worse than I liked to admit, and it's easier to leave than I thought 👋

Thanks so much to the #Nextcloud, #Thunderbird, #Dav5X and #LineageOS people for making this possible! And thanks to my techie buddies who helped me out. Look to your local hacklab for help if you need it! You can do it!

#UNICEF wants to invest in #FreeSoftware "The Fund provides investment-style funding for early-stage, #OpenSource technology solutions that address the most pressing challenges faced by children and young people", further "UNICEF requires that all code, content or hardware developed and tested be open source and be publicly available."... Great initiative! ungm.org/Public/Notice/82482

@hirnbloggade Würde jemand eine entsprechende Anleitung anbieten, wäre es garantiert einfacher als nach einer Anleitung aus der Linux-Welt.
Ich bin sicher: was Linux als Konkurrenz verhindert hat, ist die hermetische Denkweise der Entwickler und Anwender (und ich finde das sehr schade).
