machine translation (noun):

a "machine translation" is an act of moving a machine and all its connected parts the same distance in a given direction.

@jordan31 @rysiek Says the christian that adores the embodiment of everything Christ was agitating against, the orange anti-christ.

@jordan31 @rysiek The group as a whole. And the little entitled lady chose to associate herself with fascists. Birds of a feather etc.

@jordan31 @rysiek She was part of an armed insurrection (she called it "a revolution" herself), including durly dudes with Camp Auschwitz t-shirst, Wotan tattoos and other white supremacist symbols. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck...

That Zoom shut down accounts and calls where people were talking about Tiananmen Square is bad enough. But you need to understand the subtext: Zoom says that their calls are encrypted and private, and yet they can monitor them.

Those two things are mutually exclusive. This entire video chat system is built on a foundation of lies and backdoors.

“A female colleague and [I] had dared to discuss wage transparency and gender pay gap in the office … Unfortunately we miscalculated – our boss Matthias was beyond furious. After that office meeting, he told my colleague ‘there will be consequences.’ … I want to expose the hypocrisy and double standards in FSFE leadership. How the organisation ‘promoting’ transparency, equality and inclusivity treats employees and more specifically women.” @rysiek @cguess With farts it's often audible.

there is absolutely no circumstance in which i want audio or video to start playing without me explicitly clicking 'play' or 'unmute'

@jim Have to admit that I haven't hidden my displeasure from the people running that platform.

@jim Just the other day I had to deal with a internet broadcast platform that still was using Flash for its management interface...

@t0k @clacke @rysiek @jwildeboer @Steinar @benjaminpaikjones I haven't really looked at the last version yet. At first cursory glance I don't like it from a legal clarity viewpoint. It is very copyright-oriented, but without making clear what "property rights" are in play. Unlike the GPL which makes it abudantly clear that it is a copyright license first and foremost, and if necessary also a patent license.

@clacke @rysiek @jwildeboer @t0k @Steinar @benjaminpaikjones You're now confusing a medium for data storage with an object of an imaginary property right. Those aren't in the same category at all.

@clacke @rysiek @jwildeboer @t0k @Steinar @benjaminpaikjones All of this is perfectly navigable for players like ARM, much less so for open hardware projects. I do recommend the stuff Andrew Katz has written about this, including talks at FOSDEM.

@clacke @rysiek @jwildeboer @t0k @Steinar @benjaminpaikjones Yes, unless those designs would involve ASICs. Come to think of it, FPGAs are an interesting edge case here, again. Basically, in hardware you cannot solely rely on copyright because the "maker's mark" is not always there. So you end up with more exotic IPR that typically requires (some form of) registration (patents, semiconductor topologies). Which doesn't work too well with open hardware either. So, it's very, very messy.

"The Global Coalition of Global #Open #Source Seed System Initiatives (#GOSSI) envisions a world in which all #seeds are free to be used, saved, shared, and bred by anyone."

Read how in their #Mission #statement:

@clacke @rysiek @jwildeboer @t0k @Steinar @benjaminpaikjones ARM operates in a space in which the applicablity of patents *and* semiconductor topology rights are without legal controversy. Apples and oranges comparison.

@clacke @rysiek @jwildeboer @t0k @Steinar @benjaminpaikjones The notion of derivation is very much a copyright thing (and very fuzzy in copyright law). Like I said, the relationship between hardware and copyright is complicated and putting requirements on derivation may be moot if copyright is not in play to begin with. So it's nowhere near as binary as you present it. In a lot of cases the honest answer is "I don't know".
