Stellen wir uns vor, ein Brand hätte 12000 Menschen in Athen alles Hab und Gut geraubt. Statt in . Hätten die auch 48 Stunden später noch immer keine Hilfe bekommen? (Stand gestern Abend.)

Wäre man dann auch stolz, dass man plant 400 davon zu helfen?

"So," said the technician, "what seems to be the problem?"
"My batteries are drained much faster than normal."
"Ah. That's common these days."
"Is it a virus?"
"Input overload. Too much news to process."
"But I can't stop caring!"
"No. But care for yourself and limit your input."

EU Legal Affairs Committee wants Digital Services Act to end surveillance capitalism and AI censorship

RT @AukeHoekstra
'Big Oil' is becoming small!

Energy became the smallest sector with just 2.34% in the S&P index that looks at the fortunes of the biggest 500 companies on the stock market. Down by ~5x in 10 yrs. It's another piece of writing on the wall showing the age of fossil fuel is ending.

Congrats to @Fairphone on their big announcement!
Soon, we will share what we've been working on: releasing /e/OS for the FP3+ and upgrading our FP3 build to Android 10!
Stay tuned!

The @WeAreFairphone 3 will get two new high quality camera/front modules for surprisingly little money, Android10, and new phones will be produced with a higher degree of recycled plastics. Nice! 💚

(And ICYMI, this week they launched the Fair Cobalt Alliance ➡️

GroKo-Wahnsinn par excellence. Seit Jahren wird über eine Wahlrechtsreform diskutiert und CDU/CSU und SPD einigen sich JETZT auf eine Kommission für die kommende Legislaturperiode. Statt Verantwortung zu übernehmen, wird diese vertagt.

If Karl Marx were alive today he’d probably think “holy shit I’m 202 years old wtf”.

Just realising (again) how gooood the music radio stream is! Strong recommendation for all curious listeners who are eager to get to know new music across genres 😊🎶🎧🕺🧖

Don't get me wrong, computers can absolutely help us regain our environmental efficiency. They just *aren't*.

Not as long as we're:
* constantly syncing everything to the cloud,
* expecting same-hour delivery,
* funding our clickbait via surveillance advertising,
* buying a new phone every year,
* using AIs because they're cool rather than useful,
* running bloated software & webpages,
* buying into "big data"
* etc

Computing is environmentally cheap, but it rapidly adds up!

Here's a graph of Earth Overshoot Days. You can see that we're back to 2005 this year, which is cool, but for horrifying reasons. (It's because we're working from home or not working and we're buying less stuff.)

This year's Earth Overshoot Day is today.

As college students head back to school, we want to repeat this message from a university librarian: software that monitors students during tests perpetuates inequality and violates their privacy. Universities need to stop using them. #Tech #MIT

Wer Probleme mit unserem zensurfreien #DNS-Server hatte: Jetzt sollte es wieder gehen. Und zwar endlich auch stabil mit DNS-over-TLS! #DoT

Was wir dabei gelernt haben:

① Will man verschlüsseltes DNS-over-TLS, ist es keine gute Idee, mit stunnel und bind zu arbeiten. Wir verwenden jetzt unbound.

② Wir hatten ein Traffic-Limit erreicht, das wir jetzt aufgehoben haben. Kostet leider extra.

Wer kann, möge bitte spenden, um das zu refinanzieren:
