@nicksellen @wolfi in the realm of VC-backed startup services, Github is a bit special in the sense that it as a decentralized protocol at its core - git -, which makes it easy to leave. Their API is also quite permissive github.com/maxlath/backup-gith I still think it would be better to be on an libre platform, but as they have the network effect for them, the tradeoff was still in their favour

I have sent e-mails to the MEPs. Have you?
juliareda.eu/2018/06/saveyouri

Every e-mail counts. I know this, because years ago I was an activist fighting similar odds on the ground: rys.io/en/70

So send your e-mails, call your MEPs. Block Article 11 and Article 13 of the Copyright Directive.

@maxlath I was trying to explain to someone the other day how Windows is now a remotely managed OS. It's like computing was in the 1960s/70s, I said, in that the server/mainframe/cloud is king and it can push arbitrary stuff onto users. The feudal analogy is not accidental. The Windows user is really peripheral to the system and has no real control over their typing terminal. If Microsoft wants to push an ad onto your desktop or fuck around with settings in the background they can do it.

I love the hypocrisy of Microzon Facegoopple and their ilk regarding and similar regulations.

Corp: Selling user data is ok and users are perfectly fine with it, because they get their personalized ads. Precious precious personalized ads.

EU: Ok, then show them this information clearly and ask them for consent explicitly.

Corp: OH NOES THAT WILL TURN USERS AWAY!!1!

EU: Wait, I thought users wanted it? You wouldn't be lying about that, would you, eh?
