The Case Against Philanthropy - we don't want Jeff Bezos' generosity, we want his power. Human beings should not have to rely on the charity of the people exploiting them in order to survive. That was called Feudalism, and it was bad.

@amarsharma @praveen @h_tejas
#Signal has three fundamental flaws:
1. No choice of server, e.g. one in a safe country or run by local cooperative. Only their Amazon cloud one.
2. Identification by phone number, making anonymity hard and multiple accounts difficult, but helps stalkers.
3. No adequate client for desktop OS (e.g. Linux), only an "electron" one, which has huge disadvantages. And even that still requires a "smart" phone.
Neither #XMPP nor #Matrix share these deficiencies.

Got to love how, in response to @amnesty's report all the "action", "improvements" and "fundamental changes" @Facebook are seeking praise for are in response to problems they have explicity created.

The Collapse of Civilisation May Have Already Begun

Scientists disagree on the timeline of collapse and whether it's imminent. But can we afford to be wrong? And what comes after?

This should make a bunch of users happy!

We'll soon have the latest Chromium browser backported from Sid, which supports hardware-accelerated video playback!

This should help with the common complaints about streaming video in a browser consuming too much CPU resources.

ICE is demanding data on activists from their email providers.

Kudos to Riseup for not keeping the info that ICE was looking for.

There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.

I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.

Ok, so I just recently found out that OnlyOffice has a nice "community" (AGPLv3) version, and it can easily be integrated with NextCloud. So I've just set up a my own self-hosted instances of both. Wow. GoogleDocs ain't got nothing on this.
