The pay isn't amazing (though it is on the top end of our internal pay scale), we've tried to balance it with flexible hours and an amazing opportunity to do work that matters.
@OpenNIC@twitter.com @firstname.lastname@example.org Imagine being able to register a domain name as easily as you provision a Let’s Encrypt certificate. In fact, imagine that your domain name comes with one.
There are zero technical reasons why this cannot be done.
And the only way it would happen is if the EU mandates it.
OpenNic is yet another initiative I have to learn about. With large parts of the internet lost to pure commercial greed, it’s amazing and hopeful that there are always people that try to do the right thing. https://twitter.com/aral/status/1195345054593933312
I'm really glad that @email@example.com are recording the talks because some great talks are overlapping. #SeaGL2019
Currently leaning how multicast is going to make polar bears more comfy at #SeaGL2019
Sadly, the 15:45 talk in Room 3179, "Free Press, Free Society" by Emmanuel Morales is canceled. 😥 #SeaGL2019
Tomorrow's keynotes are Benjamin @Mako@twitter.com Hill, and then @firstname.lastname@example.org the paper schedule is out of date. Sorry for any confusion! #seagl2019
Good luck friends! We've got some GNOME stickers at the swap downstairs if folks at #Seagl2019 want to show solidarity with GNOME's fight. https://twitter.com/mmillions/status/1195333101674795008
Multicast syslog for remote debugging sounds... Like a boon for security researchers but maybe not only in the intended ways. Love the gentle shade being thrown at webrtc's one-to-one key exchange too. #SeaGL2019
One last call @email@example.com will be speaking about #privacy, #decentralization and scaling @firstname.lastname@example.org #SeaGL2019 in 10 minutes in room 3180 https://twitter.com/librecast/status/1195400334207680512
@HHSGov@twitter.com "Patients would be wise to ask their doctors directly about what kinds of data mining and digital profiling their hospital is using to make treatment decisions."

"... @Google@twitter.com’s researchers didn’t obtain any legal agreements covering the privacy of patient information, the person said, adding that the company rushed toward publicly announcing the project without properly vetting the data for privacy concerns."

Corbyn is apparently proposing nationalising the internet infrastructure. Getting fibre optics universally installed would be great.
However, having the government own all (or most) internet infrastructure would be a bad idea. It would merely replace corporate censorship for state censorship. A different type of bad, but still bad.
Also think carefully about the consequences of GCHQ being in charge of the UK internet. Consider the kinds of thing which GCHQ is on record as having done in the past. "mastering the internet"
So certainly the government could fund the installation of fibre, but I think it should be owned and managed democratically by the people who are using it within regions and municipalities. Not by any centralised state apparatus.
