Google or UK police: who is fibbing about terror takedowns? asks @jim as Google release their first Youtube transparency report https://www.openrightsgroup.org/blog/2018/google-or-ctiru-who-is-fibbing-about-terror-takedowns … #censorship #CTIRU
I’m sure others got here first—but was this ban really necessary? https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/8xk78x/switter-down-cloudflare-banned-sex-workers-sesta-fosta #switter #mastodon
It plugs into #opendata sources: #Wikidata, #OpenLibrary and #OpenStreetMap (OSM integration is very basic at this point). Still a long way to go but we have a small community and lots of reviews already.

This is my 2nd national election as a new citizen of Hungary. 23 parties to vote for, most of them fake or got on the ballot in a suspicious way. It appears there was a massive turn out today – Hopefully this is a good sign for the future. I'll write about my choices later.
when I voted 4 years ago there were 19 parties on the ballet – sadly, more parties does not equal more democracy.
As I mentioned before, I vote and that pretty much makes me a fake anarchist 🤥😆
Brief survey of #encryption chat apps I've looked into:
Signal: gold standard, heavily reviewed, metadata quite private, but requires your phone number.
Wire: equivalent to Signal on messaging, less private around metadata, but can use a username. I prefer Wire.
WhatsApp: equivalent to Signal on messaging, but Facebook has and uses metadata.
Telegram: rolled their own crypto, not at all hard to find trustworthy cryptographers calling their work out. Not sure what their state is in 2018 but 2015 was bad.
