Welcome to the fediverse.
I hope you enjoy being here.

Microsoft versucht mal wieder bestehende Gesetze & Regelungen als Feature zu verkaufen - es würde ja schon genügen, wenn sich Microsoft einfach mal an die DSGVO halten würde...

I’m told that many Germans are stockpiling cheese and sausages in anticipation of a COVID lockdown — planning, in other words, for a Wurst-Käse scenario

You’ve heard of serverless cloud architecture :meowtired: :blobcatsleep:

Isn't GLS bank in the stock market?
That completely defeats the purpose of being a cooperative as control is now partly in shareholders hands.

How … nice. Someone proposes (A)GPL for a project. Google guy comes in says no. Why? Because he cannot use the code in that case. But Google is not involved? Well, with (A)GPL we will never fund this project. 🧐 Not good. github.com/osresearch/spispy/i

I’ve finished watching #TheSocialDilemma on #netflix fir the first time. Will watch it a few more times. Definitely is changing something in me. Need to reflect. Please watch it too.

Hibaku jumoku (被爆樹木) are trees which survived America's nuclear attacks on Japan in 1945.

Following the bombings, American scientists declared that the cities would be barren and lifeless for 75 years. They were wrong. The following spring, new shoots began to grow from the destruction, inspiring the survivors to rebuild their homes.

Many of those surviving trees are still alive today.

Also note: while the language is about women, it is absolutely obvious to anyone in #Iceland that in this context it means "people who get pregnant" and does not in any way limit the availability of this to #trans people.

I appreciate this choice of language, since sadly in #Poland making trans rights here explicit would have potentially given a wedge for the right-wing government to drive between protester groups. Poland is not there yet with trans acceptance.

Gotta choose your battles...

Icelandic MP's propose a resolution to allow women from other #EEA countries to have abortions in #Iceland, if they don't have access to legal abortions at home:
grapevine.is/news/2020/11/03/p

This is in the context of recent anti-abortion ruling in #Poland and resulting #WomensStrike protests.

The beauty of it is that cost of the abortions would then be charged against the European healthcare scheme account, meaning Polish government would have to pay for them.
