@selea @EU_Commission it's worse.

These "AI-based" solutions like Apple's NeuralHash thingamajig are notoriously easy to trick to flag an innocent image as "known child abuse material":

Scenario: somebody sends innocent-looking photos to politicians they don't like. The AI flags them, the police raids them, and it is quickly public they "allegedly" had child abuse material on their devices.

Only they didn't.

But explain that to the public now.

@EU_Commission
The current plans are horrible. Listen to the experts for once. EDRi, epicenter.works, anyone really.
I seriously wonder where you found someone who thought it would be a good idea to totally undermine the privacy and integrity of all communication.

While waiting for the possibility to federate git sites (development in progress: forgefriends.org/) in the meantime I mirror any interesting code (especially hamradio related) from other git sites (mostly github) on my gitea server: gitea.citizen4.eu/mirror

After a long (......) break I reactivated the hamradio license (with my old callsign SP9UNB) and on this occasion I decided to publish all hamradio related stuff on a new separate account on mastodon.radio : @SP9UNB

Can you trap a galaxy in a crystal ball? I tried! Back in 2018 I took this image of the Milky Way through a crystal ball from ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile.

MIT researchers have developed a portable desalination unit, weighing less than 10 kilograms, that can remove particles and salts to generate drinking water.
The suitcase-sized device, which requires less power to operate than a cell phone charger, can also be driven by a small, portable solar panel, which can be purchased online for around $50. It automatically generates drinking water that exceeds World Health Organization quality standards. The technology is packaged into a user-friendly device that runs with the push of one button.
