Wow, just had the Pirates/Greens pick through my EU parliament presentation slides with a fine tooth comb in a phone call and try to get me to change what I’m saying so as not to criticise Facebook, etc. WTF?
Never had anyone try to censor what I say before. Of course I will speak my mind verbatim tomorrow and if anything this means I won’t be accepting any future speaking engagements at the EU parliament for these parties.
Fuck capitalism, colonialism and green imperialism.
"In Bolivia, the military, police, and right-wing extremists have carried out a coup against the elected government. They intend to remain in power by violently suppressing the country's indigenous and poor."
”What the [Bolivian] military is doing is a classic coup. It’s amazing that U.S. media outlets just explicitly refuse to call it a coup,“ says @firstname.lastname@example.org. https://interc.pt/2OahCZ4
Scammers deepfake CEO’s voice to talk underling into $243,000 transfer https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2019/09/05/scammers-deepfake-ceos-voice-to-talk-underling-into-243000-transfer/ (http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=21536320)
"The crux of the plan is for the voice assistant to move from passive to proactive interactions. Rather than wait for and respond to requests, #Alexa will anticipate what the user might want. The idea is to turn Alexa into an omnipresent companion that actively shapes and orchestrates your life. This will require Alexa to get to know you better than ever before."
The ultimate goal of #SurveillanceCapitalism is manipulation of human behavior to profitable ends.

There was recently a lot of news about DNS over HTTPS. Some people say it's bad for privacy because it centralizes the DNS requests on Google, Cloudflare and Quad9.

Site.js and Pi
Yesterday, I released Site.js 12.8.0 which brings initial ARM support for Linux.
What that means is that it’s now easier than ever to get a static or dynamic (Node.js) web server up and running on a Raspberry Pi.
Have a Raspberry Pi lying around? Why not dust it off this weekend and have a play and learn how to create your own basic WebSocket-based chat app! ;)
