A while ago I wrote three #IETF drafts together with my colleague, which bring in our research on the "Socket Intents" as a possible component to that new API.
This is really important stuff.
They do surveys which show school teachers require children to sign up to proprietary services which kids younger than 13 aren't even able to legally sign up to.
They are trying to teach today's teachers to not ask kids to use WhatsApp or github.
They provide alternative FOSS solutions for schools, such edugit.org with kid-compatible TOS.

To be honest, I'm super annoyed by accounts that are basically only cross-platform retweeting. If all your mastodon contributions start with "RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: …" … what are you doing here? Could you at least post those as follower-only?
@liw Hah, right? You'll probably appreciate this story then: My first conference talk was about a very early version of XCB, and I was 17 and totally nervous about public speaking. I was trying to be very diplomatic about Xlib's, um, faults. But Jim Gettys, who wrote the first version of libX11 in a few days in 1987, was in the front row of my audience, and kept interrupting me to say, "No, Xlib is much worse than that!"

police, germany, witness rights Show more
I just learned that last fall they changed the law in germany, so that you are obliged to answer cop's questions if they question you as a #witness. before that, you didn't have to answer the police, you had to answer only in a court of law.
here's an article (in german) of how you can still get around that and what to do to buy some time, should #police come to your home for example, and pressure you to be questioned on the spot.
i don't like st disco Show more
There is too much display of physical violence and pain in ST disco 😕 That makes it hard for me to enjoy the show. I mean, I thought the Cardassians torturing Picard was extreme, but disco goes way beyond that level on a regular basis...
Also this spore drive stuff is just silly, and they have a holodeck at a time before even TOS had one...
