Content moderation is broken, and services must do better. But a bill permitting a flood of lawsuits based on services' algorithms will only result in more censorship. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/11/lawm

Given @McCoySmith declined to debate @bkuhn_ebb_org on this matter at #ossummit, we're curious how McCoy responds to our points: (a) GPLv2 installation requirements haven't changed since 2003 & (b) don't work the way he says. See: sfconservancy.org/blog/2021/ma sfconservancy.org/blog/2021/ju

the delicious irony: creators of industrial language models are now worried about no longer being able to use the web as their "commons" (i.e. other people's labor that they appropriate and commercialize) because their own outputs are "polluting" it (via mailchi.mp/jack-clark/import-a)

The Council of Europe's global cybercrime treaty is a law enforcement wish list, which is not surprising since it was heavily influenced by prosecutors and police agencies. Read our latest analysis. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/09/eff-

Littleone started virtual school today and it is the jankiest shit you ever did see.

She's had a protonmail account for about a year now, but the school went and made her a google account because all their laptops are chromebooks. First thing the machine teaches her is to accept all the t&c's without reading them, because you've no choice but to accept them or drop outta school.

Really mad about this Linux kernel - academic research kerfuffle. See: lore.kernel.org/linux-nfs/YH%2

TL;DR: researchers at UMN introduced patches to Linux kernel that contained known-buggy code TO WRITE A PAPER and the UMN IRB didn't consider it human subjects research :blobangery:

Wtaf were these researchers thinking? How did the IRB not consider this human subjects resaerch? How did someone think this was an ethical thing to do?

"Seriously, that's all you've got? We can't end and save the 2.5b unvaccinated people and forestall a species-destroying supervariant because it might lead to…a cure for cancer and heart disease?"

The "lawful interception" industry is a hive of scum and villainy: these are powerful, wildly profitable companies who search out defects in widely used software, then weaponize them and sell them to the world's most brutal dictators and death squads.

Their names are curses: The NSO Group, Palantir, and, of course, Cellebrite, who have pulled publicity stunts like offering $1m bounties for exploitable Iphone defects that can be turned into cyberweapons.

"Wanting it badly is not enough" could be the title of a postmortem on the century's tech-policy battles. Think of the crypto wars: yeah, it would be super cool if we had ciphers that worked perfectly except when "bad guys" used them, but that's not ever going to happen.

Another area is anonymization of large data-sets.
