I wish my government and politicians would stop giving status updates and long messages to the people of Denmark on Facebook and Twitter, and instead had their own instance on the internet like Mastodon or similar.

Government and politicians in Denmark! Get together now and use the Internet which is the place for communication to the population, and not in Big-Tech's walled gardens.

Join us for our Small Is Beautiful live stream this Thursday at 5PM Irish time.

Topic: web3 is bullshit (long live web0) and wtf is NodeKit?

Well.... Haven't they not just done some spam software part of their original open source code which is proprietary? Then it can probably not be called "Fully open-source" anymore. 🤔

"You received this email because you subscribed to emails from 1Password about resources and security advice."

Yes sure i did!
But back in 2008 i signed up as an private person, and now 13 years later, i only get business related mails. I think the time has come to say goodbye to delightful 1password which have served me well all those years, but it seems to me that they is about to drop/don't care about their private users anymore.

"Apple filed a lawsuit in California against Israeli spyware company NSO Group for allegedly facilitating surveillance of Apple users"

"Privacy is Apple’s brand"

I do not agree with that. Did they not just try to introduce 'side scanning', of pictures and messages? They did.
Fuck they forget quickly!

I'am so ready

I do not understand cryptocurrency or nft.
So lucky me, there are two less things I need to worry about.

There are humans and then there are fuckers!
Big companies, big-tech and politicians are fuckers who fuck us all over, again and again.
Well, I'd better keep my mouth shut for the rest of the day. I think I'm having a bad day, today.

i downloaded all 10.000 of those ugly lazy lions nfts and turned them into a mosaic of a person right-clicking

I'm not sure I see it as a privacy feature or a privacy concern, but okay, maybe it's just me who does not really trust Apple anymore.

I marvel every day at how much we humans love labels.
We label our food with "Organic" which is the natural choice, although we know that we should label the food grown using pesticides with "may contain traces of pesticides", just as we label tobacco with "harmful to health"

Bad social media gives you an audience: stuff like reach, personality/celebrity, spectacle, anxiety, alienation, competition.

Good social media gives you community: it’s more like voice, agency, discussion, comradery.

I want a community, not an audience.

In connection with privacyweek, I just saw @laura 'People might actually use this' (re-live) talk about, among other things, accessibility and privacy.
Very good talk and very informative, has at least opened my eyes a lot more for accessibility and assistive software.
All things that I should have known more about by now.

Looking forward to @aral 'Big Tech is a virus, Small Tech is the vaccine' talk tonight at. 19.00 Austrian time.

#Facebook plans to change its name as part of company rebrand – report
theguardian.com/technology/202

Dear #Fediverse, this is the opportunity we get once in a lifetime -- we can suggest a new name for Facebook!

Quick first ideas:
- Failbook
- The Antisocial Network
- Zuckity
- Tire-All Corporation
- Aperture Data Science

sigh...😣
"For Apple Pay Visa, the researchers were able to craft messages that resulted in fraudulent payments from a locked iPhone to any EMV shop reader, for any amount. The tests were made for payments up to £1,000 (roughly US$ 1,350). Mastercard is stricter, requiring readers to have a transit merchant code before allowing this functionality."

Just thinking. 🤔
If Facebook could disappear for 6 hours on Monday, then maybe it could disappear forever now on Monday. I feel lucky!

Fediverse suits me so well. Have been on the other mainstream platforms, it's just never really been a match for me.
After a long break from the social platforms, I finally got on Mastodon and it's so cool and feels so real and genuine. Just hoping the future will reduce the big instances to some smaller ones so we don’t end up with a similar scenario as we see on the mainstream today. My highest wish is that it will be easier for people to be able to install and operate an instance themselves.

Dear Apple,
I don't think you have read our critique of you correctly. We asked you to stop messing with our privacy and instead you now telling us, that you have listened, and therefore postponed your invasion of our privacy.
Do you even think, that it should make a difference, in what we think about you? I hardly think so.
