Youguys, 8 is finally coming out. At long last!

It's on a few of the mirrors already. I just checked again and it's on some that are local to me too!

You can find them by going to your local mirror and then removing the bit that references the version number (example: mirror.example.ca/mirror/CentO).

If you see an open-source project that has support for Twitter (in one way or another, could even be just linking to Twitter profiles in a website theme) but not Mastodon, go file an issue and ask kindly for it to support Mastodon, too.

Let's help this network grow!

Today at 11:30 I and 15 other children from around the world filed a legal complaint against 5 nations over the climate crisis through the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

“I think what we should do as individuals is to use the power of democracy to make our voices heard and to make sure that the people in power actually cannot continue to ignore this.”

Unboxing and taking apart a #Fairphone 3 (#FP3) at the #EFCT19 (European Fairphoners Community Trip 2019)

Fairphones are smartphones that care for people and planet. They are made with conflict free minerals, recycled plastic and even fair-trade gold. The miners and factory workers are payed living wages instead of minimal wages and Fairphone cares for their safety and well being. The phone is long-lasting and repairable and therefore leaves a smaller #CarbonFootprint. Would #Greta use one?

Why is anyone still using Facebook?

Facebook paid third parties to transcribe users’ voice messages

"While this news is initially shocking, the more you think about it, the less shocking it becomes. In a statement to Congress in April of 2018, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the company does not use user audio for ads. He did not, however, disclose what the audio is used for."

Wow. Glad I don't go to A&W. Others out there who do, should reconsider.

"Gmail keeps a record of your purchase history in plain sight"

Wird aber noch besser:
"Google is also data-mining the inboxes of paying customers—including corporations, nonprofit entities, small businesses, and schools—for transaction data."

Das ist der Grund, weshalb man sowohl Privat als auch Geschäftlich auf Google verzichten sollte. 🧙‍♂️

Part of our mission is to help end Privacy Nihilism, which is the notion that there is nothing we can do to protect our privacy - that it's too big to handle - that there is no hope and no way to recover from our surveillance culture.

It's not too big.
There is hope.
Ways exist.



this is wrt Macmillan setting new terms on how/when libraries can purchase ebooks. they are leveraging copyright law in order to set all the rules (and ridiculous pricing/licensing.) it's not healthy. authorsguild.org/industry-advo
