@chaosradio ich sehe in meinem Feed eine neue Folge ("Gesundheits-Apps") aber sie wirft mir einen 404 beim Downloaden...

Roe v Wade implications for privacy online 

With the overturning of Roe v Wade, this org. called "Digital Defense Fund" made this bulletin specifically for women looking for information about abortion online, as their browser history, text messages etc. may now be used as evidence against them... (by the way WTF...)

Apps and services that are mentioned are Tor, Firefox, DuckDuckGo, no logs VPN, and E2E messengers including Matrix (!)


Does anyone know what's happened to Guerrilla Mail? Their site's been down for days (at least) and their Twitter account is silent...


I wonder if this time it's over for crypto. Do you believe crypto currencies will still make a comeback? Do they have any value potential for the broad public as a more privacy respecting medium of exchange? Are they merely a dangerous and environmentally destructive speculative instrument with practical use for only a small minority of users dealing in illegality?

German government makes a really cheap train ticket.
Trains are overcrowded during first weekend.
Governement is surprised.

I feel like the use of pgp/gpg could be more widespread if there was better software for it. Like email clients that manage key creation and publishing automatically and grab the public keys for the contacts in your address book etc. So far, I haven't come across any such solution. And therefore it is too much of a pain in the a*

Out of curiosity, how many of you use PGP encryption for email?

5 years ago... Pavel Durov:

> The encryption of Signal (=WhatsApp, FB) was funded by the US Government. I predict a backdoor will be found there within 5 years from now.

Chromebooks foisted on students? Teachers monitoring what children do outside of the classroom via nonfree software? Surveillance of children is common, and it's at your child's school, too. Support #FreeSoftware u.fsf.org/32h

@yogthos would be great. I inherited my wife's old iPad but there is not much to do with it since it won't run almost any apps anymore. Would love to experiment with Linux on it instead 😜

Cuba is about to enact the world's most progressive family law. People will determine their own protected family members. Queer, polyam families, platonic arrangements will all count as legal family twitter.com/morganastra/status

Nachdem ja #FairEmail und #NetGuard jetzt doch weitergeführt werden, da Marcel Bockhorst @M66B sich durchringen konnte - weil Google dann doch ein Entgegenkommen zeigte - die Projekte weiterzuführen... möchte ich euch erinnern, dass diese großartige Software in der Freizeit von einem Menschen geschaffen und weiterentwickelt wird...

Ich finde, eine Unterstützung sollte einem jeden das Wert sein, der dies nutzt:

Hier findet man wie man Marcel Geld zukommen lassen kann.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

"Messengerüberwachung dürfte an Deutschland scheitern"


"EU-Parlament und Mitgliedstaaten müssen dem Vorhaben zustimmen. Da auch Bundesjustizminister Marco Buschmann und Digitalminister Volker Wissing (FDP) sich bereits gegen den Plan ausgesprochen haben, zeichnet sich ab, dass Deutschland dem Entwurf zumindest in dieser Form im Rat nicht zustimmen wird."


just installed Ubuntu 22.04... like it so far, however Wayland was giving me issues with most apps appearing blurry including Firefox. Disabled it for now and back to Xorg, until they sort it out... Anyone else having these issues?

Wenn der Augsburger Staatsschutz im Kinderzimmer steht

Janika ist 15, als plötzlich der Augsburger Staatsschutz in ihrem Zimmer steht. Weil sie bei Fridays for Future mitmacht, gerät sie in den Fokus. Es folgen weitere Durchsuchungen.
