@bjoern Is it just me or is the content of this page so heavy protected that you cannot copy&paste the text?? How is this done? And why? On a page talking about open source technology?

@3rik UNICEF invites expressions of interest to receive funding from the UNICEF Innovation Fund (IF). The Fund provides investment-style funding for early-stage, open source technology solutions that address the most pressing challenges faced by children & young people. The core motivation of the IF is to identify "clusters" or portfolios of initiatives around emerging technology, so that UNICEF can both shape markets and also learn about & guide these technologies to benefit children. @bjoern

@3rik We invest in solutions clustered around $100billion industries in frontier technology spaces, such as: blockchain, UAVs, virtual and augmented reality, machine learning, data science, and artificial intelligence. Our funding is not necessarily limited to the above. We are interested in companies that apply tech in new, groundbreaking, ways that are scalable and globally applicable. If you are aligned with our general criteria, we want to hear from you.

@3rik ** I had exactly the same problem. Thought to share in case it proved useful to you. Note that it's up to $90k, applications are reviewed regularly (no apparent cut off date), and applicants are notified within 3 months
@bjoern

@3rik I copied the quotes in my toot from the webpage and the PDF. Both worked fine for me.

@3rik

I had no problem copyingwith my default setup (no JS, no 3rd-Patry, via ; see Screenshot) but when I turn off uMatrix, I experience the problem you describe: strg+c doesn't work, no right-click.
As to why they do it like this: I have no idea!
