The Greek spyware scandal: When technology outpaces governance https://advox.globalvoices.org/2022/09/26/the-greek-spyware-scandal-when-technology-outpaces-governance/
Before flashing #lineageos on a xiaomi device, ensure that the latest xiaomi firmware is installed.
If you have used the default (MIUI) software for a while, it should have updated to the latest firmware.
But if you install lineageos on a brand-new phone, chances are you run an older firmware version. In such a case, after flashing, you will end up stuck at fastboot mode.
We launched our own #Signal proxy. A way of connecting to its instance messaging network in places where it's being actively censored.
Just open a support ticket for connection details. Or pass the message on people you know in affected areas.

There are three kinds of travelers.
Those who use and contribute to #openstreetmap.
Those who just use openstreetmap.
And those who don't use it :(
⬆️ We're also providing an (hopefully one-click) migration from Yunohost 4.4 to 11.0. And yes, we're jumping from 4 to 11 to match Debian versions! 😜
👉 Version 11.0 is mostly focused on technical adaptation, but also contains a few security, UX, i18n improvements. Cool features are already in the pipelines for 11.1 and 11.2! 😋

Such legislation has no place in a democracy.
Greece adopted the exact same amendment to the Greek penal code (article 191) last year.
"Section 10 of the revised bill even authorizes jail time -up to two years- for anyone whose social media message *could* cause 'psychological harm amounting to at least serious distress.' [...] There’s also a separate crime of transmitting 'false communications', punishable by fines or up to 51 weeks of imprisonment."
"The problem here should be obvious: these are utterly subjective criteria. "
Just 1% of people cause a stunning 50% of global aviation emissions
"Why do I have to limit my meat consumption and use paper straws while the 1% gets to pump tons of carbon into the atmosphere for a day trip to Palm Springs?"
Yet another politician denounces that there was an attempt to trap his cell phone using #pegasus software.
In 2021, the same person as an S&D MEP has voted in favor of the chat control v1 - the voluntary one.
Now, he says that "the perpetrators should be revealed, it is a matter of his democratic responsibility".
So, there is Privacy and privacy.
- Privacy, the human right
- privacy, the privilege, that only some people can enjoy
First-ever Gitea comment on an issue from a remote instance!!! 🎉
Many fedizens seem disappointed because @EU_Commission accounts never reply.
IMO, politicians rarely engage in conversation with critics - when they can avoid it. And they are not open to change their mind unless they are *pushed* by an actor with power.
A random fedizen has little economic or political power to push any politician. Large groups of fedizens may have **some** power.
We can make EC accounts reply by filling them up with polite and constructive comments and criticism.
In "The 9.9 Percent", Matthew Stewart talks about a new aristocracy.
The "nearly rich", not the kind of Elon Musk or Jeff Bezzos. The managers, doctors and lawyers that go to top universities, marry people of the same "class", and live in beautiful neighborhoods.
Is it a coincidence that the global emissions of this group, and the beloved 1%, prevent the world from reaching the 1.5°C goal of the Paris Agreement in 2030?
