Seafarers, the forgotten souls during this pandemic.
Singapore, mention of inequality; article in BBC
"We are not asking to be treated like a citizen. Just treat us like you would treat a human being - like we are a part of society. If it could be like that, that would be very nice."
Results: What is your understanding of a "privacy-friendly" online service?
– 38% say, "a privacy-friendly online service processes no personal data at all."
– 35% say that processing is limited to the necessary amount of personal data.
– 26% say that it's just a marketing term.
Obviously, there is no clear definition of this term. We see the same problem when discussing "privacy" in general.
Thanks for your comments! 😉
If, like me, you have been unable to follow in real-time the #Assange hearings currently taking place, then visit Craig Murray's blog to catch up and read his thorough and detailed daily summaries. These are not short pieces, but fairly long and complete reports about what is being discussed, presented, and challenged during the sessions, going in details of the anomalies and tactics used by the prosecution.
Currently no mainstream media, even those who present themselves as independent, are covering the hearings in any serious fashion, if at all.
Regardless of what you think of Assange and #WikiLeaks it is important that what is being discussed there can circulate as much as possible. Many things are being debunked, and overall, the outcome of the hearings for potential US extradition will have dramatic chilling effects on future efforts to publish such documents.

Saw this documentary last night on Netflix. It focus on the current model of monetization of the big tech companies. How their pursuit for profit are thriving the worst of us, destroying our society. Is scary!
