Identity politics destroys art. At the logical end of this kind of reasoning lies the idea that you cannot reasonably depict anything that is outside of your racial, ethnic, gender ... identity. This goes against the very nature of artistic practice.

Watch: Glenn Greenwald @firstname.lastname@example.org talks about the new superseding indictment against Julian Assange #FreePress
Who is Behind #JulianAssange New Indictment?
My wife and I are going through a bit of a rough time at the moment. We're privileged to be in a better position than a lot of people right now, but we're stuck indefinitely outside our country of residence (China) and surfing from couch to couch. Most of our money is in a Chinese bank account we can't access while outside China (looong story). If anyone can offer me some paid work I can do remotely from #Aotearoa (#NZ), that would really help.
If the only way you can help is a boost, cool :)
Google's buying FitBit...and slurping in all the data FitBit users provided. We asked FitBit users what they thought, and we got an EARFUL https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/06/your-objections-google-fitbit-merger
The superseding indictment leaves in tact 17 charges amounting to 170 years for publishing evidence of War crimes. The new 'allegations' relate only to 5 years of the potential 175 year sentence. It is a desperate PR move that doesn't even connect to the Chelsea Manning events. https://t.co/IHifm63O82

Wow #Assange new superceding indictment... the US have gone mad...
Whacky worldwide conspiracy based on deranged teenagers IRC chats... #Assange allegedly pulling the strings of Anonymous, Lulzsec, Antisec, etc... de facto helping O. Ben Laden.. tons of ppl as "conspirators"..
Deranged and ultra-dangerous shit! If we let this paranoid construction become reality in a court, what's next? Being online makes you part of the conspiracy?

In the latest episode of my podcast, I look at Wirecard, the €1.9 billion fraud and how whistleblowers like @Lordshipstrade@twitter.com and journalists reporting on the story were systematically harassed.

Alright friends, the time has come. The mystery peertube instance I volunteered to migrate...https://video.blender.org!
Glad to help out and I'll be helping with this instance going forward.
@grainloom this is part of the reason why Parabola is hoping to move to the LibertyBSD Kernel in the next major release or so. And why Guix just put porting the HURD kernel in top priority.
Basically, Linux has been easy to deblob for some time, to remove DRM and such, but moves like this are shaking faith in the ability for the project to continue to operate after deblobbing patches are applied to get a Linux Libre kernel. More and more these big corporations want to add proprietary code into crucial parts of the kernelspace and make them mandatory for use of their proprietary hardware(not literally, but in practice given the resulting kernel you actually run on any given modern consumer hardware). I personally think that Linux is going through what AOSP went through, as it is stripped to the bone of features and made reliant on a ton of outside code to work on any modern machine, only being useful as a tool for proprietary app suites around it that big vendors like Samsung and Google control.
Its a serious threat to being able to run a machine with fully available code in the coming future. The last big threat was with DVD/CD DRM schemes, but now streaming DRM is going to be the next big issue for the community to fight against, and its a way bigger deal.
why the fuck is #DRM in the #Linux mainline kernel? and why doesn't #Phoronix have the guts to call this out?
This is an open letter to #Kerala Infrastructure and Technology for Education (#KITE - https://kite.kerala.gov.in/) CEO from Free Software Community of India (FSCI - https://fsci.in). We are writing to bring into your attention some issues regarding the ongoing online learning programme ‘First Bell’ and some possible solutions.
Spent about ten hours today and yesterday researching Wirecard for the next episode of The Private Citizen. After a workout break, I will record and release a new episode on how this company harassed whistleblowers and journalists. Stay tuned!
