So sad to see one of the best email apps for Android #FairEmail is discontinued, just b/c shitshow corp #Google mis-detected it as #spyware.

Apparently its complaints process is so screwed that the FairEmail dev rather threw his app in the bin.

The curb cut effect: for example, media descriptions right here on Mastodon help people who use screen readers, but they are also useful for explaining the joke for people who don’t get it, for translations of text, and for copy-pasting what would otherwise be just an image of text.

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 sphere-transgression-watch.org

Decided to buy a solidarity ticket for @openbelgium@twitter.com because we need to share #openknowledge with students and unemployed open enthusiasts as well. If you have the means, you can put that fire for open in people's eyes too here: 2022.openbelgium.be @OpenKnowledgeBE@twitter.com #super30

…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."

Merci à bawet de nous avoir accuellis hier pour un atelier crypté à la Caféteria Collective Kali !

seems like moving an account is not up to the point yet... I read at docs.joinmastodon.org/user/mov 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)

Hi @anne and @gaba. I'm trying to import my mastodon profile from an other instance. but when I chose the archive I get an "invalid file" error
