Am not normally a huge fan of the guy but he says it like it is https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2020/10/people-need-to-reclaim-the-internet/ support #indymediaback to take a small step in the right direction.
google, privacy, e-mail, from
Google started editing people's e-mails in GSuite, replacing links with a link through google.com:
This means that Google will track a click on a link *in e-mail* even if you're using an external client.
I am *guessing* this is under the pretext of phishing protection, but it actually *creates* additional phishing risk for text-only clients, since now all links are google.com links.
@hamishcampbell cool, re. indieweb Aaron is a good contact cause he had also a Talk in apconf …
Your Q&A is up
Need some help to find online openweb conferences. Do you have any links for online events were we can present the #indymedia reboot video and do the Q&A to keep the momentum up. Am not finding any as they seem to be organized inside filter bubbles, let's cross the bubbles .
Please BOOST to other bubbles for a working NEWS part of the fedivers.
"Today, workers are hardly aware of the way digital surveillance technologies are used to teach their jobs to algorithms."

The #dotcons are more evil than you likely think https://medium.com/team-human/silicon-valley-is-using-our-own-intelligence-to-make-us-obsolete-813c7a4ac2fd this is a strong issue that trade unions should be talking about more.
I don't mean that covid is punishing anyone per-se.
More that the system itself has imploded because it is built on sand and lies.
Covid just highlighted a massive weakness at its core.

And without causing harm.
And not the hippy food-only version; but the design science that it actually is!
The "western" world is finally experiencing a backlash for it's abuses to it's own people and others, and life in general.
For the folk out there who still want their jobs and "security", now is the time to realise that everything does not immediately collapse when you don't go to work all day, every day, never stopping like some perpetual motion automata.
Now is the opportunity to turn your back on politicians and businesses and remake your communities in your image!
@dsfgs @bohofromthegetgo you have to doubt the claims of all encryption as the hardwere it runs on is 99.99% insecure. if this is not in there outreach then they are a part of the problem and clearly not a part of the solution. The best you get is pseudo anonymity for 99.999% of people on the internet.
@dsfgs @bohofromthegetgo @Hamishcampbell There have been claims that WhatsApp is backdoored for a long time. It's basically a proprietary implementation of XMPP with an ejabberd backend and federation turned off with phone numbers as usernames, so they could easily do the GCHQ suggestion of “ghost members” in private chat.
The chattering class are not saveing anyone, apart from themselves for a time. Please try not to be a #fashernista
