Wow. The response here has been absolutely overwhelming. Many more replies, dms, and boosts than I expected. This is inspiring and I feel a responsibility to turn this attention into something meaningful.
I will be launching a forum and irc channel to facilitate furthering these (many) ideas and conversations.
I've bookmarked every response to the parent post; if you'd like to be notified when the forum and irc go live just reply to this parent toot, or DM me.
My turn to give back now ❤️
#Privacy and #rights groups have been alerting us to #police overreach regarding mobile phone extraction for some time (https://bigbrotherwatch.org.uk/2020/06/bbc-victims-of-no-other-crime-are-expected-to-surrender-their-digital-lives-to-such-speculation-and-scrutiny).
Importantly, the issue didn't go unnoticed by the #ICO, who carried out their own investigation in 2018.
Now they've published their #report: https://ico.org.uk/media/about-the-ico/documents/2617838/ico-report-on-mpe-in-england-and-wales-v1_1.pdf
Next Tuesday @ 18:00 UTC, join us for our first PrivChat, a live conversation series w/ experts in the tech and internet freedom fields.
This edition we'll discuss online privacy in the context of COVID-19 and activism. Plus live Q&A!
I'm looking for some motivated computer programmers to learn and collaborate with.
I am the sole developer at my job, and the (mostly) sole developer for all of my side projects; and to be frank, I've been lonely.
My goals are to further study mathematics and computer programming fundamentals in order to become a true professional and not just some "guy who makes webapps". I want to contribute meaningfully to my field and the world.
Feel free to boost, dm, and share links.
The @EU_Commission is currently examining the @google @Fitbit merger. PI wants regulators to block a merger that will give Google too much info & power.

With respect to everyone,

#yubico is driving me mad and I haven't even set up my keys yet. On their website they provide developer #PGP keys for verifying the #appimage (https://developers.yubico.com/Software_Projects/Software_Signing.html), yet they don't provide a *signed* version! Does anyone know where they keep it? I've looked everywhere...
Here's MoodleNet, the world's first federated social network for educators, a decentralised digital commons.
I've taken this as Product Manager from zero to one, and leave Moodle on Friday.
The team is calling this v1.0 beta and proud of what we've achieved. Unfortunately the management seem to think it's "alpha quality". You decide...
For those with communal recycling and refuse containers: did you ever notice how many empty boxes still have the full shipping labels on them?
A gentle reminder: remove any label that has your name, mailing address (sometimes, phone number) and barcodes from the boxes you dispose of.
Don't put your purchase history and personal information on display for dumpster-divers or anyone else in the middle of the garbage cycle.
