The EU fined Google €2.4 billion for manipulating its search results. Regardless, Google still holds so much power over our search results that it defines how we view the world. This needs to change.
Der Klempner kommt zum Klo reparieren und ihr überlasst ihm gleich den Zweitschlüssel für eure Wohnung? Wohl eher nicht. So ähnlich ist es mit App-Berechtigungen: https://peertube.mobilsicher.de/w/pdXDNguxwdz5kyKxQFscNW
The Small Web isn’t about going back to the days of GeoCities. It’s about going forward differently, using modern tech in a non-colonial manner.
It’s not about building clones of Twitter, YouTube, etc. There’s no way anyone can self-host a dozen different services. Instead, it’s about having a single-tenant place on the Web that you own and control without technical knowhow; a place you can add Twitter, YouTube, etc., *features* to.
For users who already updated to Android 12, you'll need to manually grant a new permission to CCTG, see here for details: https://codeberg.org/corona-contact-tracing-germany/cwa-android/issues/169#issuecomment-271642

The EU Parliament has repeatedly told @Frontex to stop demanding money from us. But the border police are now stepping over the parliament - and have given us until Monday to pay the agency 10,500 € in lawyer costs. 1/4 #WePayFrontexAVisit
Das Thema Impfen ist mir extrem wichtig. Leider haben noch immer viele Menschen Bedenken gegen eine Impfung gegen SARS-CoV2. Daher habe ich einen langen Text geschrieben in dem ich viel erkläre und versuche über die verbreitetsten Mythen aufzuklären. Bitte lass dich impfen!
🎉 Our iOS app is finally public! 🎉
This is a huge milestone for the project, and proof of what we can accomplish when a community comes together around a purpose.
The app link will automatically appear in the next Snikket server update (along with some other app-related fixes), but the post has manual instructions for admins who just can't wait 🙂
Me: expresses frustration with unusable free software
Some random person on the internet: “you should not criticise free software”
Hey pal, I spend every coding minute exclusively writing free software and have done so for the past decade. Getting frustrated with things that don’t work IS what fuels me to try and make things better. It’s WHY you make things better. Hiding our heads in the sand doesn’t help us make better things, it makes us lose to proprietary crap. Fuck your thought policing.
The blabber.im #XMPP server shuts down tomorrow.
Although we're now in the final hours, I've been working all week towards something to help. I've put up an initial version of a web-based XMPP account migrator at https://migrate.modernxmpp.org/
It's rushed and still a bit rough round the edges right now, but I really hope it is useful to people who still have data and contacts to migrate before blabber.im goes offline.
If you use it, let me know how it goes! 🙂
