YouTube is updating their Terms of Service on 10 December, 2019. It presents an awful possibility for the future of creators on the platform. It seems they will be able to terminate your channel if it's "no longer commercially viable."; in other words, wherever they feel like.

@jospanner Well, that's a broader discussion here - most of social media today (FB, Masto) aren't really fit for "proper discussion"... That's why Kialo was created but I don't find it very convenient either even though idea is good.

@jospanner Nobody cares about context on these chats, it's about now and there

@nikolal In 90's I was 17 and worked as an industrial alpinist to save for to travel Dolomites. 10 years earlier they just wouldn't let me go because we were property of the socialist state.

Today at BBC4 I hear about about "job guarantee" in Eastern Germany.

Russian TV: "CIA remotely switches off Gazprom pumps purchased in Austria!"

Russian hackers: "CIA remotely switches Russian citizens!"

"15.4% of the 1.3 million Android applications we analyzed, contained security-related code snippets from Stack Overflow. Out of these 97.9% contain at least one insecure code snippet."

@cck Russification has been a policy of the state for long time. About a year ago there were some controversy about reducing mandatory teaching of minority languages in schools in Russia that was passed by Duma.

Five years ago a similar act passed by Ukraine was called "genocide of Russians" and used as a pretext for military intervention...

@dw Around 1989 I was 13 years old and I was running home to go for student's demonstations and running from cops & tear gas. It was absolutely fantastic feeling of freedom and the commie bastards losing power :)

**'You should be gassed': What it meant to be punk in East Germany**
