Der neue Bundesdatenschutzbeauftragte Kelber legt gut los:
- Warnung vor Ausweitung von Videoüberwachung und automatischer Gesichtserkennung
- Vorratsdatenspeicherung abschaffen
- Datenschutz zum Unterrichtsstoff in Schulen machen. Einbindung in den Lehrplan und fester Teil des Unterrichts
Darf gerne so weitermachen!
@Ronflaix do you mean self-hosted or are trustworthy webservices also okay?
Offener Brief an den Landesdatenschutzbeauftragten (Baden-Würrtemberg) Brink
@Ubuntu_ard Hello ard, welcome to the Fediverse! Have a good time!
@colomar definitely also use it as you described. But contrary to what you felt what its purpose is and what the name "Favorite" suggests, the (official?) User Guide states "signaling agreement or offering support" as purposes of hitting that button:
@colomar @Matter Very good points that you make, and I agree with them. I am glad that they could pass the GDPR, affecting several countries.
Let's see what happens in the long run, of course it is better to have it than to not have it.
Your point on education is excellent, that's what it always boils down to. The question about how to change it remains difficult, imho.
@gairsty This seems like a neat project to get started:
I just found it when I read your toot, so I can't recommend it from experience, but it seems to be serious...but please do check for your own before using it. Maybe somebody else knows of it?
EDIT: Dang, didn't see the post from @Matter until now, leaving it here anyway...
@Matter Sure, I mean I think people around here will not suffer from this effect, but when I see how people are using the internet, I'm quite sure a lot of people would agree to anything just to be able to use the sites they're used to, no matter what data is collected. As an example: if you do not own a PC or laptop, just mobile devices, how would you know what a cookie is?
Imagining how the next generation is going to handle infosec without something bad happening...scares me.
@Matter You're completely right, of course. I don't know about you, but I regularly see my colleagues, family and friends just tapping the okay button on their phone's browser...without checking what they're consenting to. With most of them, I'm not even sure they know the reason why every site now prompts with "these annoying popups"...at least that's my impression. I'm glad if that's not the case in general!
@jrswab certainly an interesting read, hadn't heard of it until now. Thanks!
Does anybody else have the feeling that all the complaints of businesses about the GDPR just went away because they noticed that now that users have to consent, they can literally just collect any data they want? I have the feeling that it had a completey reversed effect to what they wanted to achieve...
This is a public service announcement: by saying "IT is crap because users still buy it" you are effectively blaming the victim.
There is a huge information and resources asymmetry between large companies creating software and hardware, and regular person who just wants their Internet-connected device to, you know, not do harm. Companies effectively made a business model out of that asymmetry.
We need education and regulation to make IT not crap.
@Azure Thank you! Good sunday to you!
