Dans la pratique — les révolutionnaires se trompent toujours, parce qu’ils croient toujours la vérité trop simple, ont trop confiance en eux-mêmes et s’imaginent qu’ils ont trouvé et déterminé le terme du progrès humain; tandis que le propre du progrès, c’est de n’avoir pas de terme, de n’atteindre ceux qu’on lui propose qu’en les transformant, de ne résoudre les problèmes qu’en en changeant les données.

The EU border police Frontex is under fire for its involvement in human rights violations at the EU’s borders. Now, they want to silence those exposing their wrongdoing.

Frontex is taking us to court.

Design goals for a FOSS search engine:

- FOSS but centralized, don't bother with distributed crawling or federation or anything, at least not until we can prove that we can do it the easy way. Apply the SourceHut model.

- Don't blithely crawl the whole WWW. Tier 1 sites opt-in to being crawled and are manually reviewed by a human to establish lack of shit. Backlinks from tier 1 sites are crawled to form a tier 2 graph. There is no tier 3. Searches prioritize tier 1 results. (De-emphasizes blogspam in favor of primary sources, entirely eliminates SEO gaming).

- Attempt to index any data source (HTML, Gemtext, man pages, a CSV file) and return any results that either (1) the User-Agent can present, or (2) we have some code to render in a format the U-A can present, or (3) the user explicitly asked for

Problem: who's going to pay for it? Answer: probably SourceHut if we ever get to, say, 10x our current revenue.

Heureusement qu'on a toujours pas d'application de traçage des contacts inspirant confiance et toujours pas de tests vraiment rapides et efficaces en nombre suffisant. On sait jamais que ça nous mènerait tout droit vers 1984 ou la société de contrôle ou la bio politique 🤪

The EU's top court has ruled that UK, French and Belgian mass surveillance regimes must respect privacy

But what does that mean for governments' data collection schemes? And what does it take to fight a legal battle lasting years?

Le logiciel libre et l'internet ouvert sont encore de formidables vecteurs d'émancipation tant qu'on veut encore le voir. La 5G n'y change rien. Que ceux qui veulent débrancher la machine essaient plutôt de se l'accaparer. Vous verrez c'est cool.

Alors - les juges ne nous donnent pas raison sur tout, mais globalement, l'objectif est atteint!

Maintenant, on peut pousser pour des réformes. Il faudra être habile - pas seulement au Conseil d'État mais aussi au Parlement !
