In China, CCTV cameras were used to publicly shame citizens wearing pajamas in public, showing footage next to their photo ID. This isn't made up.

CCTV is starting to invade globally... reason No. 3,454 why we need strong privacy regulations. bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-

Ok so apparently this happened!

Thanks for over 11,000 views of my article. I honestly never expected it to be this well received.

As I have explained in other posts, I won't really be writing much this year. However I have recently completed an article on the origins of surveillance, so if you would like to see that then let me know.

Once again, thanks for the incredible support!

I sneaked a tiny change into the next #FDroid app release (1.8). App-details will now also display the summary text.

While it's a tiny trivial change, I'm hoping it'll make the app way more usefull. Because often summaries are the only translated text we've got. Also search results sometimes only show the first few words of a summary. Now it's becoming easy to find closure. Last but not least this will make the app and webiste more consistent.

tired: the admin can't access the data because it's encrypted end-to-end
wired: the admin can access the data but you trust them not to do it
inspired: the data is stored in Mongo so the admin doesn't know how to access it and it's probably gonna be destroyed before anyone can access it anyway

Being horrible to people online isn't okay, even if you use #Linux.

It's really not very difficult to understand.

I like about mastodon that you can assume most people have a level of technical understanding and are kind

New years resolutions for woke cis het men who are comfortable with their pronouns:

1. Put them in your bio
2. Put them in your email signature at work
3. Wear a pronoun badge

What could be manlier than LITERALLY labelling yourself as a "he" man?
