The Declaration of Digital Autonomy is a HUGE deal. We should make a big fuss around it.

I just finished a translation to Catalan. Join me in the effort to broadcast the message. Add your own translation.

Catalan version:

La Declaració d'Autonomia digital és un fet MOLT important.

re: signal app 

While I'm at it, can we note that Outcry Driven Development is a huge resource drain on a user community? We shouldn't have to be constantly on the alert for a policy, code or legal, change that will become permanent if we don't scream loudly enough, fast enough.

That's tiring, emotionally painful, and a form of labor I'd rather not consent to doing. There are other ways to figure out whether users will find a feature troublesome -- like presenting its effects clearly, thinking through user scenarios, and asking enough of them in advance.
