@theselfhostingblog May I ask for a suggestion? I have small home NAS server running Void Linux, and since my mother has had storage problems in her android phone (only 16GBs), I watend to create an automatic backup solution to move the old files on the server and free some local memory.
Do you know of application/backup utility that could be easly used in android for local backup?

From an email newsletter from the ORG

"The UK’s privacy regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), has posted a vacancy for its top job that reads more like an opening for a corporate lobbyist than the data protection champion the UK needs.

The next leader of the ICO can make or break Britain’s commitment to strong data rights. We must act now to ensure a corporate imposter is not chosen."

The Open Rights Group is "calling for a truly independent Information Commissioner who will hold the Government, and Facebook, Google or Palantir – to account?"

Yeah, it is troubling to think that movements like the FSF may die out due to its self implosion because no one picks up the baton due to internal frictions. Unlike opensource projects I think the FSF's ideology makes them a less atractive proposition for investment in tms of the big players

I have long thought that the corporations buying influence in important opensource projects may be doing so because they realise it may only be a matter of time before they can position themselves as custodians of those pojects. It has to remembered that most big corporations will have 5, 10, 15 and even 20 year plans for success.

Data retention: ignorance becomes a political method. Not only Macron wants to simply ignore the rulings of the EU Court of Justice. Berlin is following the same course.
This is not the Rule of Law !

"Police are warning students and universities not to access Sci-Hub, an "illegal website" that allows users to download scientific research papers normally locked behind expensive subscriptions."

Very bad indeed. That name again: Sci-Hub. Remember it so you can avoid it. Ahem.
