Every Wednesday I publish a newsletter about digital rights - here's today's edition https://connectedrights.net/2018/08/22/are-online-platforms-tools-or-privatised-law-enforcement/
New blog post from me - "Stop your eye rolling over there. This Jeremy Corbyn Brexit interview is important."
I just remembered how in my first few months as a tech journalist I found myself interviewing Chuck D and got to quote him as saying digital rights management is "just a lot of fucked-up shit" https://www.zdnet.com/article/chuck-d-lays-down-the-law-on-drm/

French state seems to be opening its own instance on Mastodon. https://amicale.net/users/DINSIC/updates/148
What happens to our profiles, people followed and posts if a #Mastodon Instance dies?
We've seen this happen earlier when an Instance lost its data and there were no backups. I think the backup issue is being handled by most #Admins now.
But say an Admin dies expectantly and they are a sole Admin of their Instance? Where does this leave others?
Maybe there should be some "buddy system" in place between Admins? Other ideas?
Hi all Mastodons and other free social network users,
unfortunately there was a misunderstanding and this is the last post of firstname.lastname@example.org
The account will be deleted over the weekend.
But, of course, we will keep staying in the free. Please follow us here:
Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this!
