EU Commissioner @YlvaJohansson is preparing to launch a new law to force the mass surveillance of private online communications but has refused to meet with privacy experts like @edri.
The Commissioner has met with Facebook but https://Has-Commissioner-Johansson-met-with-Digital-Rights-Groups.eu?
So today it is Germany's turn to overshoot the renewable capacity of Earth. I don't know why we think that this will somehow work out and that technology will save us. Excessive consumption is a path to destruction.
Dear Commissioner Helen Dixon of @DPCIreland@twitter.com,
you just received one of the German #BigBrotherAwards for your “comprehensive sabotage of European Data Protection law”.
What is your response?
In the past decade, the tech giants have moved into ever more spheres of society, including health, education, news provision and urban planning. Such sphere transgressions may be beneficial, but they may reshape these spheres and society in dangerous ways https://www.sphere-transgression-watch.org/

Decided to buy a solidarity ticket for @firstname.lastname@example.org because we need to share #openknowledge with students and unemployed open enthusiasts as well.

…in 2016, the Computer, Privacy, & Data Protection Conference (CPDP) chose to stop accepting sponsorship funding from Palantir after participants like Aral Balkan pulled out of a panel & described CPDP’s acceptance of [sponsorship] as “privacy-washing”.
Sadly, they continue to privacy wash to this day with Google, Meta, etc. as their top sponsors.
(The linked article is a good resource, however.)
"Nous sommes nombreux-ses à nous être désolidarisé-e-s de pratiques destructives en privilégiant des sources d’information indépendantes, une mobilité douce ou une alimentation respectueuse de la terre et des producteurs-trices. La proposition de Nubo va dans le même sens. Il s’agit bel et bien de prendre soin d’un espace de notre vie dont nous ne saurions plus nous passer, en lui donnant l’attention qu’il mérite plutôt que de le laisser s’emparer de nous."
seems like moving an account is not up to the point yet... I read at https://docs.joinmastodon.org/user/moving/ that followers have to become followers anew... and "Your toots will not be moved, due to technical limitations.". So I can export all my data but only import a small part of it (the less interesting one)
