Toh guarda, salta fuori che quando il reato è sufficientemente grave (e qui è gravissimo) le autorità hanno già tutte le risorse necessarie per identificare rapidamente un "anonimo" sui social. Si cercano volontari che spieghino questo concetto, con parole piccole, ai vari politici che reclamano l'obbligo di identificazione nei social. tio.ch/dal-mondo/attualita/162

“The internet is a space for the public with no publicly owned spaces. The 30 year old decision to fully privatize the internet without any public speech forums means that we live in a city without any sidewalks or parks or school auditoriums”

Wouldn't it be better if libraries played its traditional role of buying-preserving-lending, but now for digital materials?

Basically perform their same role in the digital world that they did in the physical world.

An argument for digital ownership.

#Lettonia, #migranti e #dirittiumani

Un muro di spietata freddezza per bloccare l’onda dei disperati.

"Uomini, donne e bambini respinti nel ghiaccio delle foreste nordiche tradendo le regole e i valori dell’#Europa. L’atto di accusa di #Amnesty International contro la Lettonia apre una pagina nera che l’Unione ha cancellato in fretta, sepolta dalle cronache della guerra. Quello che è avvenuto però sui confini dell’Ue due anni fa non va dimenticato".

The world's most central newspapers have joined to declare that going after Julian Assange with the Espionage Act "threatens to undermine America’s First Amendment and the freedom of the press," and that it's time “to end the prosecution of Julian Assange.”

Right on both counts.

No italian newspaper joined them. (Yet?)

RT @NicholsUprising@twitter.com

A bold, united front — with absolute clarity about what’s at stake for the future of journalism — is needed to confront the threat posed by the efforts of the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute Julian Assange.

Interessante: la lobby USA del cloud si muove per attaccare la certificazione di sicurezza #ENISA che mira a sostenere un #cloud europeo sovrano, mitigando le interferenze delle giurisdizioni straniere sui dati degli Europei.

Se le condizioni di #privacy di Microsoft vi sembrano oscure, siete in buona compagnia: anche le autorità garanti tedesche non ci capiscono nulla. Secondo loro, non è possibile usare #Microsoft Office 365, a prescindere da #SchremsII, in modo conforme alla legislazione europea sulla privacy perché M$ pare incapace di dire chiaramente che uso fa dei dati dei suoi utenti. mastodon.social/@wchr/10940694

"La Russia è uno stato terrorista" sembra una bella dichiarazione finché non realizzi che per coerenza devi ammettere che anche il tuo stato è terrorista visto il sangue versato in Iraq e Afghanistan, e quindi sei terrorista anche tu. Poi capisci che ogni guerra è terrorismo legalizzato, e che le guerre non le fanno gli stati, ma i governi e gli eserciti, arrivando alla conclusione che l'imperialismo russo, come quello atlantico, esprime da decenni governi responsabili di guerre terroriste.

There's an ugly storm brewing in EU software security legislation that could seriously impact open source software development. Those of you in the EU should read this article and do some lobbying. The goals of the legislation aren't unreasonable, but the conformance-testing burden would totally overwhelm the OSS community. The legislators need to rethink how they approach the burden and responsibility of auditing. blog.nlnetlabs.nl/open-source-

Mastodon has more than seven thousands Instances, each with its own personal rules that must be evaluated one by one.

But in fact there are not more than seven thousand different regulations: many are identical to each other or differ only in a few points.

I think users, moderators, and admins would find it very convenient if Instances could choose to adopt some basic set of common regulations: something like GPL or Creative Commons licenses.

If you see that Instance X has adopted the Type "A" License you already know what it is without having to read the various points and so on.

And if Istance Y has adopted the same license but added few points, you need to read only those.
