(paywalled, dumped here )

When the Quayside project got scuttled earlier this month, it was the final blow in a years-long conflict among urban designers, their Silicon Valley bosses and multiple levels of government. Insiders tell the story of how it all went wrong.

Well it took over a year but we managed to get Google Fonts removed from the Mozilla Rust project. Thanks to everyone who helped out and supported this.

People organized in decentralized ways, offline and online, without hierarchical structures but vast networks of local solidarities demonstrate WE CAN defeat the most powerful entities!

The beat goes on!

Guys, I am tired of people posting screenshots, graphs, "news" and "information" without a reference to a source. All that is useless unless it's verifiable with a quick search. The fediverse isn't resistant against false information just because it's the fediverse. Use common sense, ask for a source and debunk fake news.

Today, #Assange rots in jail, particularly vulnerable to #Covid19 with chronic lung illness, awaiting extradition in the US where he faces 175y for these uncompromising acts of journalism.

Time to tell that story again! #FreeAssange #DontExtraditeAssange #StopWars


The Data Protection Commissioner in Zurich about :

"Zoom can only be used during the crisis. The Global Data Processing Addendum must be signed and returned to Zoom."

The original text in German:

"Zoom kann nur während der Corona-Krise eingesetzt werden. Voraussetzung ist, dass das Global Data Processing Addendum unterzeichnet und an Zoom retourniert wird."

The 26 pages (!) Addendum:

#Zoom is taking it to a new level - after leaking your webcam data to anyone who knows your computer's IP for Mac & leaking your data to Facebook on iOS, Windows 10 is next with leaking your login credentials.

Since the started I made two videocalls with their instance and that saved me from feeling completely isolated. Unfortunately free telecommunication services are completely overloaded atm, but that's why it's so important to projects, especially right now.

Thanks @Framasoft ❤️

@eff yes, and EFF also needs to stop calling their TWTR feed "official" & their #Mastodon feed "unofficial". EFF should not even mention their TWTR feed outside of TWTR. Send website visitors to Mastodon instead.

@FuckOffGoogleZurich good news: they just removed #Google #STUN servers by default

but now the servers need to be updated 🤞
