The Greek spyware scandal: When technology outpaces governance https://advox.globalvoices.org/2022/09/26/the-greek-spyware-scandal-when-technology-outpaces-governance/
@rysiek Although you cannot separate actions/opinion of a person on a specific topic from actions/opinion on other, if these topics are not connected, it may be "productive" to do so.
You may endorse a person's position on x, while their position on y is awful.
E.g. you may be a fan of Metallica; at the same time you are free to boo them wrt their opinion on copyright/ip. However, there is no reason to say that Metallica's music is bad because of the copyright thing.
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.

Consider cooking. It would be great to cook for a group of 2-3 families that live close to us, and set up a schedule that relieves us of the burden to cook every day.
However, we opt to cook every day for our own family.
@samwilson TBH the map has failed me several times, and in some places in the country I live the map provides very limited info.
- I do my best to fix the errors I face
- Improve the map of the town I live
- Spread the word
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
