The irony of banning #TikTok because they "may" hand over to the Chinese government during a time when the US is actively trying to end #encryption (because they can't see your data) is a bit much to take...
#Privacy is a fundamental human right, and invasion of privacy through apps like TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, etc is the real problem from US companies and beyond.

End-to-end encryption protects your video chats from prying eyes & data leaks, which is even more important as we work and socialize remotely. Through the latest @NGIZero funding call NLnet supports new E2E encryption for the popular open source #JitsiMeet video chat solution, as well as a host of open source & open hardware projects like: peer-to-peer editing @libreoffice, live streaming in @pixelfed, automated vulnerability scanning for GNU Guix and much more -> https://nlnet.nl/news/2020/20200910-SelectedProjectsNGI2020-06.html

climate change, wildfires, Trump idiocy
"It'll start getting cooler, you just watch," Trump responded. "I wish science agreed with you," Crowfoot answered back. "I don't think science knows, actually," Trump said, before moving on to talk to someone else.
Stop posting photos of your kids on social media
Just stop. Animals are ok, but kids aren't dogs—they'll grow up and will have feelings about you plastering their face and their life everywhere for your emotional satisfaction.

I've been trying to explain why it's good to have a general purpose distributed and generic protocol like CapTP rather than a bespoke one. However Ode to the Grannovetter Diagram already did so for me:

Thunderbird 78.2.2 email client update is out https://www.ghacks.net/2020/09/11/thunderbird-78-2-2-email-client-update-is-out/ #Thunderbird #Email
Troll Level 10.000 « Relying on #PlainText #email is a 'barrier to entry' for kernel development, says Linux Foundation (MICROSOFT) board member » 🤦♂️ https://www.theregister.com/2020/08/25/linux_kernel_email/
We need to defeat this bizzare cognative dissonance people face when they have to re-evaluate the place email holds in their mind. It's not some useless relic of the last generation to cast off in the course of chasing the shiny new.
- Built with open standards
- Fault tolerant
- Enjoys a wide variety of open-source clients & servers
- Has widely available implementations for almost every programming language
- Already being used for software development at scales greater than GitHub-style development has ever dreamed of
