How a neighbourhood took on and won

When Google wants to do something, it usually gets its way. Not so in one Berlin neighbourhood. .../... the [campus] plans riled local activists and neighbourhood groups, who had concerns about gentrification and rising rents, and in some cases harboured specific anti-Google sentiment on issues such as tax and data privacy.

Let's kick Google out of our neighborhoods and out of our lives, online and offline!

First Kreuzberg, then the World!


"Winston's job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones. [...] This process of continuous alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound-tracks, cartoons, photographs -- to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance."

City break this weekend. Was nice to properly test out #OsmAnd for the first time, although unfortunately I wasn't having much luck with the (beta) directions feature. But hey, still beats using #Google maps! @FuckOffGoogle #privacy #apps #FOSS @fdroidorg

The Deceptive Platform Utopianism of Google’s Sidewalk Labs

"The company’s “innovative” plan for Toronto’s waterfront puts radical spatial practice, participatory ideals, and romanticism to work for a regressive marketization scheme."


"We should thus keep our eyes keenly on the developments currently playing out in . If a precedent is set, the urban platform infrastructure being developed by may well be coming to a town near you."


Google écoute des conversations privées via Google Home
Dans une déclaration publiée cette semaine par Google, Google a admis que certains de ses employés avaient pour tâche d'écouter, de réviser et d'analyser les extraits sonores des conversations utilisateur - conversations qui ne sont pas nécessairement dirigées vers le périphérique Home.

Fuck this marketing bullshit.
Fuck Silicon Valley.
Fuck the startup culture.
Fuck capitalism.
Have a good day! :)


"The reasons I’m leaving aren’t a mystery. I’m committed to the AI Now Institute, to my #AI #ethics work, and to organizing for an accountable tech industry — and it’s clear #Google isn’t a place where I can continue this work."


@coloco This should be reason enough to shut down the company #fuckoffgoogle

After audio recordings were leaked, @Google has acknowledged its contractors are able to listen to recordings of what people say to the company’s #AI system, Google Assistant.

Facebook and Google are two types of plastic surgery that have turned into cancer and have seriously damaged the Internet.

It 's time for a Mastotherapy for everyone!

Google contractors are secretly listening to your Assistant recordings 

Google contractors are secretly listening to your Assistant recordings

Not only is your Google Home device listening to you, a new report suggests there might be a Google contractor who’s listening as well. Even if you didn’t ask your device any questions, it’s still sending what you say to the company, who allow an actual person to collect data from it.

Solidarity to from & co.

The struggle of the people of Toronto against Google/Sidewalk Labs' attempt to build a "smart district" is critical for the future of humanity and the autonomy of the people.
Fuck off Sidewalk Labs! Fuck off Alphabet/Google &co!
