When a corporation serves you content, they make sure to protect it with DRM so that you cannot make a copy it. It is serious enough that you go to prison for breaking DRM and violating DMCA.

But when surveillance capitalists want to put a price on your data and commodify it, they never talk about how many copies they're going to make of it, the number of times it is resold, all the purposes they're going to use it for and the retention period.

As someone who got introduced to GNU/Linux & Free software from school, this is really 💯❤️

Seeing students make cool stuff with FOSS tools from Little KITE clubs is really awesome. Kids get access to Arduino & Raspberry Pi in schools these days! Wish I was in school now :D

"Tbh you could do this yourself with a reverse IP lookup, a small piece of JS and a single DB table"
