‘In healthcare, better data demands better privacy protections’

“How can we explain what is going on here? One possibility is that startup nation advocates pushed hard to ratify the plan as soon as possible, because of its contribution to innovation; these advocates view considerations of privacy as obstacles.”

@Eramdam SOGo seems to implement this weirdness, it display the vCalendar content as the mail body directly. Seriously, how can we tell the people at Microsoft that the Internet is all about standards?

@wxcafe @jkb my reaction exactly when I learned about that.

* gets an empty mail *
* scratches head *
* tries different mail clients *
Third one's a charm: it's a vCal file sent as alternate body, with an empty (and invalid) HTML alternative, and no plaintext alternative. Of course this is sent from Microsoft Exchange.

@rysiek In German: Aufruf an alle #Fediverse Admins von Instanzen in der #EU. Die #CopyrightDirektive kommt und wir müssen unseren EU Parlamentariern zeigen, wie sehr europäische Internetseiten betroffen sind.

Wir bereiten eine Liste aller EU-basierten #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale und verwandten Instanzen vor.

Bitte kontaktiert mich. Ich brauche nur euren Domainnamen, den EU Staat in dem die Seite gehostet wird und das grobe Thema der Instanz. Die ungefähre Nutzerzahl wäre hilfreich, ist aber nicht nötig.

Bitte helft mit, das ist wirklich wichtig!

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

This is a periodic reminder: open source maintainers are doing their best to keep up with a firehose of questions, bugs, imperfect docs, and so many other tasks it's easy to take for granted. Please thank and be kind to OSS maintainers. Usually they only hear the bad feedback.

Just published @ind.ie/https-server

https-server is a simple Node.js-based local development server with locally-trusted TLS certificates. Use it, for example, to test service workers, etc.

Experience on Linux (tested only with apt—see help wanted section in readme):

1. npm i -g @ind.ie/https-server
2. https-server my-static-site

This does everything necessary to start up your server, including installing all dependencies, creating the CA, locally-trusted certs, etc.

Frederick Douglass: Find out just what the people will submit to and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.

hot take on life:

Any system that relies upon the moral integrity of individuals is bound to fail.

Appel à tous les admins du #Fediverse qui gèrent des instance dans l'#UE. La #CopyrightDirective se rapproche et nous devons montrer aux parlementaires ses effets sur l'Internet.

Nous préparons une liste de toutes les instances européennes #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, etc.

Contactez-moi. Je n'ai besoin que du nom de domaine, du pays et de l'objectif général de l'instance. Un nombre approximatif d'utilisateur est le bienvenu, mais pas indispensable.

C'est important.

9 years ago this month, Eben Moglen delivered the oration that started it all: "Freedom in the Cloud."

This speech inspired the #FreedomBox project. Part history of the web and part call to action, this speech continues to orient our community today. It's worth revisiting each year.
