ProgramKitsForEveryone, takes inspiration from the DIY tutorials of 80's home computers. Created by Stefan Nikolaj, This #GNOMEChallenge project will supply "program kits" containing all the tools needed to create a small or medium-sized #opensource project. Each kit will include documentation containing examples of the finished program in action, an explanation of how the systems of the program interact, and what needs to be done to make it work.
Greenwald: My Resignation From The Intercept
"The same trends of repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet I co-founded, culminating in censorship of my own articles."
"our culture is demanding more and more submission to prevailing orthodoxies imposed by self-anointed monopolists of Truth and Righteousness, backed up by armies of online enforcement mobs"
Guidelines 4/2019 on Article 25 Data Protection by Design and by Default
It provides a short in depth explaination of practical aspect of the legal responsibility of data controllers under #GDPR.
For example it clarify that data protection measures (both tecnical and operational) must be designed to be EFFECTIVE and to be effective BY DEFAULT.
It also specifies that the cost of data-protection measures cannot be used to justify their lack of effectiveness, but only to peek the cheapest one among the effective ones.
And, obviously, the data controller is always accountable for such effectiveness.
@alcinnz ... like docker, and even a ton of code and functionality added to the Linux kernel and userland systems - have been either fully implemented or massively funded by Silicon Valley money. That's a bad starting point for FLOSS in some ways. 😉
I've just been reminded: I often forgot the constraints most people feel (and work around) with existing web hosting services! By which I include Medium and YouTube.
Running my own homeserver really illustrates to me how trivial all these webservices really are. They're very much pretty facades upon almost nothing!
Silicon Valley has done nothing to deserve your worship.

Zoom is deleting events that criticize Zoom censorship... 🤨
The RIAA issued GitHub a takedown notice for "youtube-dl" via their DMCA repo, which of course GitHub instantly complied with without protest.
Now a security bug GitHub refused to fix has been used to push the DMCA censored code into the DMCA repo itself.
Let the recursive censorship games begin!
"[Microsoft] GitHub has the right to suspend or terminate your access to all or any part of the Website at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. GitHub reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time."
Also, can we make a point of always calling it Microsoft #GitHub from now on please? Thanks.
People, everyone needs to read the whole parent thread. This is important.
Copyright is encroaching on everything from right-to-repair do the right to communicate freely; #youtubedl situation is just the latest of a long string of abuses.
We need to reform copyright.
Let's keep ytdl alive and kicking! 😈
RIAA DMCA MICROSOFT GIT YOUTUBE COPYRIGHT that's you that's what you sound like.
If the EFF doesn't have a lawsuit lined up already they will before Monday. Stop supporting labels that joined the RIAA or its Canadian counterpart. Blacklist artists who refuse to jump ship. Make their complicity public, instead of shouting at each other. There is a clear wrong side of this.
So yeah I think I fixed Inkscape for #guix but the patch review is pending.
Well spent morning coding. I was going to make some random stuff and I thought it was a better idea to solve my issues and everyone else's.
If you are bored click here and criticize my code:
In contrast to my well spent morning, I also had a badly spent afternoon going to the spanish post service and try to arrange the paperwork to send https://elenq.tech 's books to all the backers of the campaign http://en.goteo.org/project/elenq-publishing
There's only one person in the central office of the province that knows how to solve that paperwork.
She wasn't there.
I have to return monday morning. She doesn't work in afternoons, but all the rest of coworkers do. She's special.
