#Apple finally admitted in writing they hold the web to much higher #privacy standard than apps in their own app store.
If you don't want to try to make these APIs available to #web apps in a safe way, fine, but don't block users from installing other browsers then.
I'm considering muting the words Signal and Telegram. It just makes me sad to see all the people go from one centralized non-free place to another centralized non-free place, while they're thinking it's a good thing.
Trying to explain and educate them about ethical options, feels as fruitless as emptying the ocean with a spoon.
Whether they deserve to be blocked or not, public officials communicating over platforms solely controlled by (foreign) private for-profit companies always seemed completely dystopian to me... However, there are already pioneers on the #fediverse:
Je to tak prosté: buďto je sociální síť technologiciá platforma a pak nemá bez soudu co zasahovat do obsahu, nebo je sociální síť vydavatelem a pak má práva i povinnosti vydavatele. Jenže sociální sítě si dnes stvořily hybridní model: žádné povinnosti technologické platformy a všechna práva vydavatelů. To přineslo negativní externality v podobě prostředí pro hybridní války, účinné štěpení společnosti pomocí zapouzdření do bublin i přesné cílení na jejich zájmy a především předsudky.
I have been elected to a two year term on the W3C TAG!
I'm really excited for this opportunity to work for a better Web, and more than a little bit daunted. And so so grateful for all of the support people have given me during the election, which I did not expect to be as intense as it was.

We had a laptop we didn't use much, so we decided to donate it. I installed #Fedora on it and we gave it to a foster family today.
If you have such hardware at home, consider donating it. What just sits in your drawyer may enable a kid to participate in schooling.
Finally there's a wifi-connected USB "flash memory stick" which is basically a smart MicroSD card reader.
I have had so many use-cases for this already... Displaying files on a (somewhat) #smartTV, exporting captures from #PlayStation etc.
At the start of the 20th century, the mass of human-created stuff weighed in at 35 billion tons, roughly 3 percent of global biomass.
Human-made materials now equal weight of all life on #Earth and doubling roughly every 20 years.
On average, for each person on the globe, anthropogenic mass equal to more than their bodyweight is produced every week.

The Commission is drafting a proposal of the Digital Services Act, which shall address illegal content on-line. In order to safeguard fundamental rights, colleagues from my political group and I have drafted a model law on removal of illegal content, transparency, etc. (a so called Notice & Action legislation). We need your feedback. Do you think that this could be implemented on Mastodon? In order to comment, please, reply to this toot or send me a message. @Gargron https://www.greens-efa.eu/mycontentmyrights/notice-and-action/
