“Where professors can still make choices, we must recapture academic technology and reject Big Edu-Tech systems. We must favour products that use standardised, Libre open-source software or, even better, software developed within our own institutions.”

Fediverse friends and followers from around the world, I have a huge favor to ask!
If you are out for a walk or drive and you spot a payphone, would you mind sending me a photo of it? (DMs are always open) I will feature it on my #100DaysOfPayphone thread over on the birdsite and of course give you credit.
When I started this a couple of weeks ago I didn't realize all of my old photos from before 2018 are gone, which means the hundreds of old phone photos I had taken at one point are also gone. But maybe this opens an opportunity to see payphones from around the globe.
This could be a payphone that you spot in the wild that still exists (thank God there are still some of those out there) or it could be a photo you took in the past of a phone that may or may not be there anymore. But please, let me see your payphones!
If you have photos of other cool phone equipment or phones that aren't payphones, they won't work for the #100DaysOfPayphones thread, but I encourage you to send them my way as well. Phone related stories? I'd love to hear them! Please help me spread this around the world!
All payphones are acceptable, but I especially encourage you to send in any photos you have of payphones from countries other than the US or phones that are unique in some way. Also, PLEASE boost this toot and help me get this call for help out there! Thank you! 📞
Tout ce pouvoir de surveillance n'a jamais été encadré par le moindre texte - Il n'existe aucune limite à ce qu'a pu faire et ce que peut faire aujourd'hui la police en termes de surveillance de la voie publique par hélicoptères

Not OK, Zoomer: Here's Why You Hate Videoconference Meetings -- And What To Do About It - https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20210226/06104846322/not-ok-zoomer-heres-why-you-hate-videoconference-meetings-what-to-do-about-it.shtml #zoom
The idea that website owners have "a right" to track the clicks from their emails to you and to know everything about your journey in their system is wrong.
Imagine if you buy your child a bike - does the chain manufacturer have a right to know what time they use the bike and which friends they visit?
Of course not. We should stop pretending that websites are magical experiences that require persistent intrusion.
#Privacy is a right, even though it is far from being legally declared so.

Student surveillance vendor Proctorio sued one of its critics for speaking out. Cases like this show the need for strong anti-SLAPP laws throughout the U.S., and Canada as well. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2021/02/student-surveillance-vendor-proctorio-files-slapp-lawsuit-silence-critic
Hihgly recommended talk: "What We Know We Don't Know" about software development. Summary: we know almost nothing; code review in suitable chunks works well; lack of sleep, too much stress, and too much overwork ruin quality.
Retour à l'envoyeur:

When researchers find a flaw in the way #Signal #Signalapp circumvents censorship in Iran (leading to identify its users), their issue get deleted from Signal's Microsoft Github and they get banned from Signal's repository...
..but only because they allegedly violated a "code of conduct" by being "disrespectful"!
Morality is safe! Iranians, maybe not... As long as we don't hear about it, there is no problem, right?
