Introducing Google Passport Business: the easy solution to access control
(i'm not gonna write the whole thing)

@julialuna stop lathing those horrible things into existence

@julialuna don't worry about it
It's just every time I read about such an idea, my brain goes "I'll give it another five to ten years before this is reality"

@ghostdancer @schratze @julialuna Equally crappy but with none of the cool stuff or aestetics 😁

@Mek101 Probably would be great friends and share nice weekends fishing near their dachas or in their yachts. @schratze @julialuna

@julialuna
The book version of The Circle was basically this.
Not the movie, that was crap as they bodyswerved the reality of a tech infested society where everyone was always on and everything was transparent because the circle knew everything you did.

But i guess you already know that ;)

tech dystopia, re: fictional ad 

@julialuna I’m honestly surprised they didn't do this yet

tech dystopia, fictional ad 

@julialuna the most dystopian thing about this is still passports itself 😬.

@julialuna Traduzco lo aportado:
"Presentamos Google Passport: ¡su nuevo y amigable compañero de viaje! ¡Se le permite ingresar a todos los países en los que operamos! Actualice su pasaporte a premium para poder omitir la fila en los controles de seguridad, o actualice a la clase de lujo para omitirlos por completo. [sigue]

"... Los propietarios de un Google Passport Deluxe también obtienen mejores condiciones en varios lugares, por ejemplo, al abrir una cuenta bancaria o alquilar una casa.
¡Su pasaporte de Google también se puede utilizar como identificación en la mayoría de los países!
¡Regístrate ahora!"
Asusta.

@julialuna which website does that, so that I know to avoid it?

tech dystopia 

@wolf480pl @julialuna
Yes, name and shame!

The worst part is that logging in with one of those networks doesn't verify that you're a real person anyway.

tech dystopia 

@mathew @wolf480pl this particular example was gleam.io

@Craftplacer
Oauth is quite cool, it's the big centralized networks that are bad and should have never existed.

@julialuna @trisschen that is a 🚩if I’ve ever seen one.

tech dystopia 

@julialuna Please verify that you are a Twitter bot!

tech dystopia 

@julialuna
I left FB because the relationship was abusive
Twitter left me (in limbo) so I walked
I've never had Instagram
Google has repeatedly data-raped me but I can't quite escape their sweaty paws.

Social Media is a disease. Like syphilis.

tech dystopia 

@julialuna Which company is doing this?

tech dystopia 

@julialuna next thing you know Facebook stop working and you don’t have a Twitter account

tech dystopia 

@julialuna google plus ? or is it just google oauth

re: tech dystopia 

@julialuna Me trying to verify my phone number with discord and finding out Italians are not people

tech dystopia 

@julialuna I don't have any of these.

@julialuna

"You're only a real person if we can extract rents from you."

tech dystopia 

@julialuna I don't know how some incompetent website not putting in proper mesures to verify real people is dystopian to be honest.

@julialuna I'm curious to know, so far, how many people have provided their ID and phone numbers to Google so they can see all content on their Fascist-Tube.

@julialuna I'm not a real person. I prefer not to be a real person.

@julialuna I dont know the source of this but this is discriminative and it should be even prosecuted by law. Its basically asuming that if you dont have a social profile on any of these platforms you are basically excluded from society, which also excludes people who has no access to such platforms as well as people who dont want to access such platforms in order to protect their identities. It could also endanger people such as victims of domestic violence or journalists who might need to protect their identities.

re: tech dystopia 

@julialuna Exact reason I can't sign up to D&D Beyond, there is no just plain email option.

@julialuna That's the point at which I send them an angry email detailing their retardation.

hoo whee julia calls people out directly for once 

@Zergling_man before softblocking you i'm gonna point out that using "retarded" is quite ableistic, anyway bye have a nice life

tech dystopia 

@julialuna let’s make a website where only options are:

Fedi
Codeberg
GPG signed email

tech dystopia 

@julialuna To be fair I dont know a single real person who doesnt have a facebook or twitter account... just saying.

tech dystopia 

@julialuna You are a first indeed, and now I do :)
