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.

Revealed: Google made large contributions to climate change deniers

Google has made “substantial” contributions to some of the most notorious climate deniers in Washington despite its insistence that it supports political action on the climate crisis

.... more than a dozen organisations that have campaigned against climate legislation, questioned the need for action, or actively sought to roll back Obama-era environmental protections.

My bank's home-banking system uses Google Tag Manager.
It's a bank! It sends user's behavioral data to Google.

Nh'ésitez pas à partager, à aider, à demander


@jobregon Gracias por compartir. Me ha gustado mucho. Dos observaciones:

1) Narrativa. "código abierto y libre uso"... Ojalá simplemente #softwarelibre

2) Censura. Como se ve en la captura, se ha difuminado el "Fuck Off" de la pegatina #FuckOffGoogle

on cherche des raisons de ce réjouir.

Du coup,
on se disait que l'on pouvait provoquer ces raisons.

On voudrait faire et aider à organiser un café #nog00gle dans plusieurs villes en même temps (même jour ou même semaine)
(#Rennes, #Nantes, #Nancy, #Montpellier et bien dautres)

Ça pourrait être marrant et symbolique.

Donc nous cherchons des personnes intéressées pour faire cela un peu partout.

Repouets appréciés

"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."
