EFF applauds WhatsApp fixing a group chat bug:

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/04/fixed-whatsapp-rolls-out-group-privacy-settings

I get it, a lot of people use WhatsApp. But this doesn't deserve applause---WhatsApp deserves condemnation. It is a proprietary, centralized service. There are better ways to go about your communication with others where you don't have to put up with company inaction by completely relinquishing control of your communications to a third party.

I wrote about this and more back in February in response to the GHCQ Ghost proposal:

Another thing I don't like about Windows 10 is how it's shoving the Microsoft Account into it's user's face. You have to go out of your way to do what you need without making an account. I expect the next version of Windows will not even run without mailing your birth certificate to M$. Big data == big money.

Almost done with my next #creativecommons #music video / arrangement. This time a guitar + piano + percussion + other weird instruments "remix".

The guitar part is a #creativecommons composition by someone else, I basically designed the whole arrangement of the other instruments around the guitar part.

Audio mostly done in #ardour and #audacity, video in #kdenlive.
