Google is given kind of a pass on this one, but I'm not convinced that's fair. Makes new offerings like the PinePhone look really tempting.

@thegibson Short of "capitalism" as one other response gave.

1) The entire business model of gifting some service to a consumer in hopes that you can than monetize them through data extraction/influencing (or also by extracting VC funding until FAANG buys you to get your data... but that's the same thing). This business model should be as illegal as running a pyramid scheme.

2) Not sure, because I don't really have the time to sit around and audit what every company is doing with my data. I'd like to see privacy policies that accurately describe the exact usage of any data I provide to a company, and I would like to see an independent entity audit these companies to confirm that the data is being used according to the policy and in no other way and suitably ring the alarms when a company isn't or won't give them sufficient access to prove this case. This would be particularly hard, since we also need to trust that the auditor themselves isn't using the audit to extract data for nefarious means -- somehow needs to be a firewall between them and the state without making the auditor toothless.

@kuketzblog Das OnlineKonto lässt sich vermeiden - auch jetzt noch:
Keine LAN-Verbindung oder
WLAN nicht verbinden, auch wenn es schmackhaft gemacht wird, die letzten Updates zu ziehen - NEIN!
Läuft dann durch.
Aktivierung später durchführen.
Für den Fall, dass es schon zu spät sein sollte: nachträglich auf ein lokales Konto wechseln. ODER
2. Admin anlegen mit lokalem Konto und erstes Konto löschen.
Dat geiht!

Ich find’s schon irritierend, wie kompliziert die ganze Lage mit dem Geldabheben im EU-Ausland ist. Wir haben die nationale Lösung Girocard, aber ausländisch braucht es Maestro oder V-Pay oder richtige Master-/Visa-KK. Warum überlassen die Banken das den US-Unternehmen? Warum gibt es keine europäische Lösung?

Ist das so wie mit HBCI, das außerhalb Ds niemand unterstützt, weil sich halt alle damit abgefunden haben, dass der beschissene Zustand normal ist?

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

youtube views and instagram likes has really skewed with our perception of audience size. so many things arent considered a success unless they crack 100k or 1mil and like ????

a sold out game at Dodger Stadium is 56k seats

a sold out game at the Staples Center, 20k seats

The Greek Theater 5,800 seats

Orpheum Theater 2,000 seats

El Rey theater 200 seats

like.. even if you arent pulling a mil, there's still entire crammed buildings worth of people looking at your content

Ein Szenario, das bis heute Mittag als unwahrscheinlich galt, ist Wirklichkeit geworden: Mit Stimmen von CDU und AfD hat der Thüringer Landtag den FDP-Politiker Kemmerich zum neuen Ministerpräsidenten gewählt. Wir haben erste Reaktionen gesammelt.

Mmm. Die Gema wollte mal 20000 Ocken von mir für das Spielen unserer eigenen (CC-Lizenz) Stücke. Es war reichlich Mail und Telefoverkehr, incl. Rechtsanwaltsschreiben, um unsere kleine Party mit ~~50 Freunden zu legalisieren.
