The developers of Signal are currently doing a user survey:
I told them that I really like the app but also that I would like:
a) Signal on @fdroidorg
b) a proper desktop client
c) no data stored in "secure enclaves"
Maybe you'd like to tell them, too?
Look, here's one of our #osoc20 projects! 🤩

DÉBAT 5G - Contre les rhétoriques inévitabilistes et l’offuscation des intérêts en jeu, nous souhaitons un véritable débat sur le déploiement de la 5G ainsi qu'une réelle concertation sur les trajectoires techno-scientifiques qui nous concernent tou.te.s.
Si vous aussi vous contemplez la pluie et une soirée qui s'annonce casanière, peut-être est-ce le moment de se plonger dans le dossier de La Quadrature du Net : Faire d'internet un monde meilleur. Cette saga retrace les origines du capitalisme de surveillance pour proposer les perspectives plus optimistes d'un internet libre, décentralisé et respectueux de la vie privée.
Nouvelle victoire pour la protection des données : un arrêt européen dénonce la surveillance de masse par la retention disproportionnée des données et métadonnées. Grâce à cet arrêt, la Belgique devra bientôt revoir son régime de conservation des données en faveur d'une meilleure protection de la vie privée. Et plutôt que d'attendre que les géants des télécommunications se mettent à jour, optons pour des alternatives à taille humaine et démocratiques !

"No business model by design" : this does not mean that we do not need money (we have to pay the developer!), but that we do not want to anchor development in a single model (which is capitalist and entrepreneurial). We reserve the right to be agile in the search for funding, without locking ourselves into a model for the next 10 years.

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.
It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.
It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.
It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.
It's not how e-mail should work.
Consider dropping GMail.
Halt and Catch Fire!

Someone coming from #FROSCON joined us Tuesday in Detmold to #bike2cccamp together. Today we faced some ups and down in the Harz mountains, needed some muscle stretching after today's ride (will sleep like a baby tonight in my cold tent). Tomorrow we'll leave the track of EuroVelo2 which is a beautiful track but not the most direct route. If we want to make it to #cccamp2019 in time we have to hurry a bit now. Hope the weather is going to be better during camp...
Didn't use an airplane for more than 10 years and hope that's going to be normal in near future.
