It looks like, in response to a DMCA request, Microsoft has removed the Github repo for DeDRM, a plugin for helping people read ebooks they've bought on their chosen ereader.

Ever need to share private info in #pastebin, but don't want others to see it?

Try an #anonymous/private Pastebin,
(#privatebin code).

What's great about it?

256bit-zk (zero knowledge) #encryption, even owner of the server can't read it.

In 2021 we published safeguards to help civil society and communities advocate for stronger human rights protection when faced with the privatisation of public functions and surveillance

Installed and set up GNU/Linux on one of my laptops. Working nicely, including not bundling a proprietary Wi-Fi driver on it.

One of the best findings this year is that you really don"t need a proprietary OS to have a productive environment, unless you are *forced* to use it against your will, right, and freedom.

@eff Whatever the "Metaverse" is, if it becomes anything, it is in EVERYONE's interests that it does not become the Zuckererse.

Which is why availability of self repair is not only important, but necessary.

Why would you have to send your phone to someone who you don't know to get it fixed??

I found this post by #mozzila is very well written and easy to understand. Anyone want to understand how #http works give it a go 🙂

What is your favourite platform for contributing translations?

We're overhauling our i18n to support the new design and make every string translatable!

Boosts appreciated! #pixelfed #i18n

Of course Elsevier's "enhanced pdf viewer" tracks where you click, view, if you hide the page, etc. and then transmits a big base64 blob of events along with ID from University proxy when you leave. I'm sure straight to SciVal for sale.
Is this the way we want science to work?

When you see news outlets publish an article with the headline like El Salvador bought a lot of , the first question should be: how did you verify the fact?

Nobody really does that. Neither transaction IDs nor the address that the government controls have never been mentioned.

Technically this should be fairly easy, but the outlets just keep forwarding some tweets of the top guy in the poor country where democracy has not really existed.

If you want to #selfhost but don't have the skills, you should really try #yunohost IMHO it's the best way to free yourself from #gafam

Basically it's a headless server, once installed, includes a preconfigured xmpp chat server plus an email server. In addition, it allows for one click installs of many excellent applications like #nextcloud #mastodon #wordpress #bitwarden #peertube and many more. Give it a spin with this handy demo instance

Please boost!

Released under MPL, it is possible to audit the source code hosted at, share, edit, and redistribute it.

This is a right move that respects the civil right and freedom. You should not be forced to use any proprietary software to access public services, funded by tax of general population.
