Microsoft sammelt und speichert in großem Umfang personenbezogene Daten von Office-Nutzern, ohne sie darüber zu informieren - hat das niederländische Justizministerium herausgefunden: privacycompany.eu/en/impact-as

Microsoft sagt dazu:
"Wir verpflichten uns, die Privatsphäre unserer Kunden zu schützen, indem wir ihnen die Kontrolle über ihre Daten geben"

Brandheiße Idee: Würdet ihr die Daten nicht sammeln, müsstest ihr sie auch gar nicht schützen... :think_bread:

I just soldered wires to the back of the RAM in my laptop (1GB DDR2) using colophony from the violin of my sister as flux. Second time SMD soldering and it worked like a charm :) I'm planning on putting an Arduino and a Raspberry Pi in there, connected using I2C

#ActivityPub is a technical standard for connecting independent sites together to form a single giant network.

Mastodon users can follow people from other Mastodon sites because they all talk to each other through ActivityPub.

But there's more... AP also lets different kinds of sites talk to each other, so people on Mastodon can follow people on PeerTube, Pleroma etc.

AP services in development:
mastodon.at/@switchingsocial/1

Some (very) technical details:

Just deleted the Google app from my phone due to an unwanted advertisement for a film sent to me via push notification. This is an abuse of the notification mechanism, and they should know better. Unfortunately it's becoming an all-to-common anti-pattern that is giving notifications a bad name.

when you work at a nuclear power plant and join the union and get into a position of power and start investigating and discovering the incredibly unsafe working conditions including getting contaminated with plutonium from just filing paperwork and having 400 times the legal plutonium contamination limit so you start investigating the company and writing a report and the company argues that you poisoned yourself on purpose to make the company look bad and you bring your report findings to the new york times but you crash your car on the way there and during the autopsy it is discovered that your papers aren't there (even though you brought them with you) and the autopsy finds that your blood contained high amounts of sedatives and also your name is karen silkwood and this actually fucking happened

Theory: Open source software is terrible to use because design can't be parceled apart like development can. Design has to be holistic and design by committee results in awful stuff. #foss

anonymous github user can no longer
* know who contributes to public repositories
* know email addresses of users
This makes migrating (and giving credit) free software projects out of #nsamicrosoft github harder.

A comic. A girl's brain says being gay. She is unfased and says "i love that". The girl's brain then says proprietary software, which mortifies her.
