Since we didn't get very many women, enbies, or people of color to submit talks, the folks choosing talks for the Decentralisation & Internet Privacy track at FOSSDEM 19 decided that we'd like to ask of you:

If you submitted a talk, go ask an underrepresented minority friend/acquaintance of yours if they'd like to give the talk with you/in your stead.

Microsoft Office 365 kostenfrei für Bildungseinrichtungen wie Schulen und Universitäten. Na das ist ja herzallerliebst von Microsoft!

That's great, and I totally support people doing that. It's part of the solution. But what do you do when the Australian government charges you under anti-terrorism laws for refusing to back door the software you're developing with the territory they claim jurisdiction over?

From my uncle jim's weekly ramblings:

"People no longer want technology controlling their lives. And, it's
going to get worse.

From Open Media:
Big Telecom continues to lobby hard for policies that would put their
profits above the public interest, like the ability to blacklist
websites. They keep dominating Canada's wireless infrastructure so new
companies can't enter the market and compete by offering better prices.
[Canada has some of the highest cellular prices in the world.]
