Hello all,

I'm interested in #free_software, #privacy and concerned about the danger of #monoculture and #monopoly in technology and elsewhere.

I've been a #Linux user since 1998, and a #Fedora contributor since 2005. My $dayjob is with #Facebook though not on any product or ads teams, and I actually get to work with, and contribute to, #floss projects.

See my profile for my other #fediverse accounts. Looking forward to conversing here!

Using Gmail confidential mode is neither secure nor private. As long as Google can read your emails, its privacy promises will always be disingenuous. Here’s why Gmail’s confidential mode isn’t actually confidential: protonmail.com/blog/gmail-conf

"It’s strange, isn’t it? The ideology of capitalism is that it is a system that generates immense abundance (so much stuff!). But in reality it is a system that relies on the constant production of scarcity.

This conundrum was first noticed back in 1804, and became known as the Lauderdale Paradox. Lauderdale pointed out that the only way to increase “private riches” (basically, GDP) was to reduce what he called “public wealth”, or the commons. To enclose things that were once free so that people have to pay in order to access them. To illustrate, he noted that colonialists would often even burn down trees that produced nuts and fruits so that local inhabitants wouldn’t be able to live off of the natural abundance of the earth, but would be forced to work for wages in order to feed themselves.

No existen relaciones libres sin responsabilidad afectiva.

"La libertad no es lo opuesto a la responsabilidad afectiva, al contrario, conjugar las dos cosas es estrictamente necesario para que las relaciones libres sean en la práctica lo que pretenden ser en la teoría: una posibilidad de emancipación y no una forma más de opresión".

IBM and the Holocaust — why wasn’t this on my radar?

"[...] In all the Nazi-conquered territories, census operations [by IBM] made the rounding up and extermination of Jews possible. However, they weren’t as successful in France, where an estimated 25% of Jews died. For comparison, an estimated 75% of Jews in Holland died. In France, the census operations were eventually completed by René Carmille. However, Carmille sabotaged the operation, preventing any information about religion from being punched into cards. He also used the census information to mobilize the French Resistance. He was eventually captured and taken to Dachau where he died of exhaustion".

Dos y Dos son Cinco – #1984

Mi reflexión sobre la audiencia de fijación de fianza en el caso de Ola Bini. Uno de las muchas ocasiones, en este caso, en las que "2 + 2 = 5". Si no lo han hecho, lean 1984 de George Orwell.
