Google deleted an Indian App from Play Store because it was suggesting users to remove apps with ties to China.
It seems educating people is now also disallowed in Google.

Hey ,
I'm looking into start doing more exercises and be fit.
Usually I get demotivated fast, so I'm thinking in keeping me motivated with some metrics to see the evolution of the exercises in my health.
Any hints/advice?
Smart watches look interesting, but only if I can run open source on them.

@yabirgb @sir I don't trust Signal,too.I would never recommend it and I don't have it installed on my phone.I don't know why Snowden likes it but nearly every fact is clearly against it:
- It's centralized so one company has control over everything
- It's hosted in the United States,the home of the NSA and on servers of Amazon,the evil company behind Alexa
- It blocks third-party clients so there's no way to port it on other systems,for example the upcoming Linux phones
- It requires your phone number,therefore it's not anonymous.I think there's a new alternative way without the phone number but then they upload your contacts to their servers or anything like that
I'm sure there was even more than that but that's what I remember without searching very old posts.If you want secure messaging,use decentralized protocols like Matrix or Jabber.

Oh wow that's some serious #snakeoil salesmanship right there!

mathematicians: "haha, look at this -- based on what we know about math right now, there's no way to make certain operations easily reversible."
computer nerds: "cool, we can use this to encrypt data in transit."
mathematicians: "nice. Though don't bet on it always being hard. I mean, we solve hard problems all the time, haha."
cryptocoin nerds: "In fact, we're going to bet trillions of dollars on it remaining hard forever."

In January I had the pleasure to advise the German Chancellors Office about the new Data-Strategy and Cloud-Computing. Today I have the opportunity to speak to the European Commission about the same topic.

When widespread suffering leads to exceptional gains by a handful, you know you have a very broken system. Capitalism is cancer.
