End of Support for Firefox on Amazon Devices

Is Mozilla shitting us? They suggest seriously Alexa (or Amazons Assistant) as alternative which is NOT privacy respecting at all.

Habe meinen Text jetzt so:

Ich finde toll, dass ihr auch im Lockdown spannende [Veranstaltungen/kritische Debatten/Workshops] zu den Menschen bringt. Aber dass das mittels Zoom passiert, von dessen Nutzung Datenschutzexpert:innen ausdrücklich abraten [1], finde ich gar nicht gut. Ich möchte als User z.B. nicht an einer Veranstaltung teilnehmen, bei der meine Daten für die Zwecke eines Unternehmens verwendet und widerrechtlich exportiert werden.

Ihr könntet Eure Veranstaltung datenschutzfreundlicher und inklusiver gestalten, indem ihr eins der zahlreichen Open-Source Videokonferenz-Werkzeuge verwendet. Eine entsprechende Liste mit den jeweiligen Einschätzung der Berliner Beauftragten für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit findet ihr in diesen Dokument:

The last contribution to #Signal's server software was on April 22, 2020. Due to the sudden commit drop to literally 0 it is no longer possible to seriously call current Signal versions fully open-source.

That has no effect on the messenger's end-to-end encryption or its overall security but it does compromise the trust in the Signal Foundation, especially when considering that they did not give any reason for not disclosing the source code.

I am currently looking for some interesting user-accounts to follow, in order to get started on mastodon. Do you have any suggestions?

By the way, I am interested in modern technologies (preferably FOSS), I just began to explore and use Linux and this is my first experience with mastodon.

Fosstodon

Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
