This opt-in requirement is critical, and the precise thing tech orgs successfully lobbied to remove from the CCPA:

"As a first step, governments must enact laws to ensure companies including Google and Facebook are prevented from making access to their service conditional on individuals “consenting” to the collection, processing or sharing of their personal data for marketing or advertising."

Möchte, aus einer Laune heraus, mit nachfolgendem Text nochmal eine Lanze für das #fediverse brechen.

Auf #Twitter folgt man als unbedeutender Niemand größeren Konten, teilt deren Inhalte, liked deren Beiträge. Konversation untereinander ist, wenn sie stattfindet, häufig streiterfüllt und unsympathisch.

Im #Fediverse folgt gefühlt jeder jedem. Der Austausch ist mannigfaltig, häufig sachlich und der Umgangston grundlegend freundlich. Hoffentlich bleibt es noch lange so.

Wire bekennt nun endlich Farbe:
"In connection with the financing, our holding company moved from Luxembourg to the U.S., as we believe this will be helpful in future fundraising necessary to support our strong growth."

Mike's one piece of advice for new Mastodon users - dive into that Federated column and follow ANYONE and EVERYONE who looks like they've posted anything at all interesting to you. Just hammer the button. There's no penalty for mistakes. Go wild.

Later, when your Home timeline is buzzing, go in and unfollow people you decide you're not enjoying so much now.

Then do that again a few times. Then some more. Forever.

Die Pornobranche ist bemerkenswert repetitiv. Es ist erstaunlich, dass immerzu neue Filme gedreht werden, obwohl doch 'schon alles' gezeigt worden ist.
Daraus sollten sich auch interessante Schlüsse für andere Märkte ziehen lassen, bin mir nur nicht sicher welche.

Some "lessons learned" from the whole #NordVPN disaster:

1. Revoke keys when you notice the private key was compromised
2. Use HSMs to prevent private keys from getting compromised
3. Inform your customers about breaches
4. Do proper audit logging of your systems' user accounts
5. Use your own OS images, when installing machines
6. Run an IDS to get informed when your production systems act unusual
7. Spend more money on infrastructure security, less on marketing it

This sucks.
For @ux_lux@twitter.com event we use Eventbrite, it doesn't have the community features but it's free for free events if it helps

RT @dabit3@twitter.com

WOW Meetup.com is now charging attendees a mandatory $2 to attend events. If you want it to be free, you have to cover the $2 for every person that comes to your event.

As someone who ran meetups for > 4 years, this sucks.
