My #nextcloud #raspberrypi server got a storage upgrade. This little card has enough room for everything I had in Google's cloud.
I have room for all my photos, music, naked lady pictures, ebooks, spider-man comics, documents, etc. All on a tiny little card in a tiny little computer that lives behind the cupboard and runs on a cellphone charger.

It is nice to own your own shit.

It's time to break up AMAZON, GOOGLE, and FACEBOOK

Just wrote a letter to Members of European Parliament from six countries asking them to reject Article 13. Two of them host my projects and I just like other four. I honestly believe things like Copyright Directive have global impact no matter where you live. You can write your own letter.

It is a bit too long and certainly not perfect.
Subj: Concerning Copyright Reform and Article 13

Dear Member of the European Parliament!

To make things clear from the start - I am not one of your constituents as I live in Russia. However recent developments concerning Article 13 of the copyright Directive will have global impact which will also directly affect me so I decided to reach out.

You are probably aware of the critique of Article 13. While these proposals might be acceptable to large platforms they will decimate smaller social services because the cost of implementing upload filters will be prohibitive. Also these technologies will have to be outsourced to existing Big Data giants (mostly US based corporations) which will not just raise costs but also affect independence of social services forced to use them.

But I am pretty sure you are already aware of all that.

What I am more worried about is the precedent EU is about to create. Let me be frank - these days EU is beacon of progress and humanitarian rights. When it comes to freedom, privacy, social rights the world looks at you. Article 13 goes against these values. If it gets implemented governments of the rest of the world will see it as a green light to follow with even harder censorship and other restrictions of freedom of speech and expression. And they will already have the technology pioneered by Article 13 compliance - which won't be working good, which will misfire, which will be expensive and most likely under control of corporations like Google and Facebook. And as recent history of my country shows - if there is a restrictive control tool in place, it will be misused at one point or another.

Also there will be economic consequences for European IT companies. Right now a lot of projects are hosted in EU because of legal stability and respect of human rights Europe provides. With Article 13 in place it will change and these projects will move out to minimize potential liability. I am hosting two Internet projects in EU space myself, one in Germany and one in Italy. Please think what makes European hosting companies different from the rest. Also consider the fact that currently there is very little pirated material openly hosted by them - EU companies are known for low tolerance for piracy.

Please consider the overwhelming amount of critique towards Article 13. A good selection of points is here: https://saveyourinternet.eu/statements/

As a part of World Wide Web community I ask you to reject Article 13 of the copyright Directive.

Sincerely Yours,
Alexander

Inside the Pentagon’s race against deepfake videos
https://edition.cnn.com/interactive/2019/01/business/pentagons-race-against-deepfakes/
Advances in artificial intelligence could soon make creating convincing fake audio and video – known as “deepfakes” – relatively easy. Making a person appear to say or do something they did not has the potential to take the war of disinformation to a whole new level. Scroll down for more on deepfakes and what the US government is doing to combat them.

Müesli #8


After 9 follows 8. Yet another free müesli recipe. Yet another "version 2" (the first version has never been published).
This time, it's not a reverse engineered proprietary müesli, only inspired by various so-called tropical müeslis:

* coarse oat flakes, 500 g
* cacao beans (broken or "nibs"), 100 g
* mango (dried), 100 g
* sunflower seed, 100 g
* banana chips, 50 g
* coconut flakes, 50 g
* pumpkin seed, 50 g
* whole cashew nuts, 50 g

Again it's < 10 % sugar. Again, it's best served with out milk (< 5 % sugar).
But this time, it's not for cats! Cats, so I heard, must not eat any cacao or chocolate.

Electric-car owners in China are worried their vehicles are sending their locations to the government

More than 200 manufacturers like Volkswagen, BMW, Daimler, Ford, General Motors, Nissan, Mitsubishi and US-listed electric vehicle startup Nio, tell the Chinese government where you are with positioning data alongside a whole batch of other data point, the Associated Press has found.

Another good take on the "Nothing to hide" argument by Bruce Schneier:
For social norms to change, people need to deviate from these inherited norms. People need the space to try alternate ways of living without risking arrest or social ostracization. People need to be able to read critiques of those norms without anyone’s knowledge, discuss them without their opinions being recorded, and write about their experiences without their names attached to their words. People need to be able to do things that others find distasteful, or even immoral. The minority needs protection from the tyranny of the majority.

The Big Hack: How China Used a Tiny Chip to Infiltrate U.S. Companies


The attack by Chinese spies reached almost 30 U.S. companies, including Amazon and Apple, by compromising America’s technology supply chain, according to extensive interviews with government and corporate sources.

My 4 fucking projects: if you want to support me -> https://www.paypal.me/trixty <-

- #Unitoo-MusicAwards
-> https://liberapay.com/UMA <-
Immagine/foto
The first #world #music #awards where all the #independent #artists can #participate, paying a small cost of participation, provided they release ONE #song in #CreativeCommons.
(currently I can not find a webradio that only transmits music in creative commons / copyleft that gives me a hand... I contacted 6-7 webradio, but they all get scared LOL)

- #Unitoo-Cosplay
-> https://liberapay.com/Unitoo-Cosplay https://linkto.run/p/SWUIXNER <-

- #Unitoo-Comics
-> https://liberapay.com/Unitoo-Comics <-


The intent is to enhance #independent #cartoonists giving them full #freedom to #create anything they want, without having to submit to any "rule", except to #release all the material in #Creative #Commons. What would like to become Unitoo-Comics for independent cartoonists is what is, currently, the Marvel and the DC comics for the current "commercial products"
A #free, #libre and #open-source #webcomic, #supported directly by its #patrons, to change the #comic #book #industry!

- #Unitoo-Esports
-> https://liberapay.com/Unitoo-Esports <-


I was thinking of opening the inscriptions also for e-sports with open source games ... but taking a server is currently too expensive, so for now I put the idea (momentarily) aside lol


 

Europeans don't understand the 1st, they despise American culture, they think we are stupid and lack of culture, nothing has changed. I like guns, I don't shoot people, I shoot printers in the wood, is it a crime ?


#freedom #gun #law #god #america #wild #europe #culture #clash


 
- maybe I found a webradio (which only transmits copyright free music) that advertises the Unitio Music Awards, so as to have at least 10 participants
- and I finally found the first cartoonist to enter the Unitoo-Comics (as I wrote in another post) ...
slowly the projects are "moving" XD

Another (and so far final) repost: EU copyright reform… Dear fellow Diasporians, please take action now.


(a near-copy from @itri's near-copy of my own recent post)

The vote on this is going to happen tomorrow, and, as I understand it, the new law will also affect networks like Diaspora, in fact many smaller sites and businesses.


(It affects "online services" that allow data to be uploaded and published... It will most probably affect federated networks like Diaspora or Peertube, all kinds of sites that deal with free and open software, probably also artists who want to upload their own work, maybe smaller e-mail providers, it might raise prices for getting one's own website hosted by a webspace provider etc etc...)

On https://saveyourinternet.eu/ you can act now, and write bulk or personal e-mails to members of parliament of your country (by only a few clicks). Please do!


Arguments against the implemented reform (taken from https://saveyourinternet.eu/):
  • Article 13 is bad for the Internet as a whole: … it “would mandate Internet platforms to embed an automated infrastructure for monitoring and censorship deep into their networks”.
  • Article 13 is bad for EU citizens’ fundamental rights: … it “would violate the freedom of expression set out in (…) the Charter of Fundamental Rights” and “provoke such legal uncertainty that online services will have no other option than to monitor, filter and block EU citizens’ communications”.near
  • Article 13 threatens legal certainty in the EU: … there is scientific consensus on the fact that Article 13 “threaten [s]the user participation benefits of the e-Commerce Directive (2000/31/EC)”.
  • Article 13 will be bad for the European economy: … “these rules are bad news for publishers who rely on an open and competitive internet to source, create and disseminate stories to their readers” … “the suggested filtering technology will raise the cost of launching a startup in Europe and drive talent away”.
  • The Parliament must promote a balanced and evidence-based approach to copyright enforcement and not fall into the trap of so-called ‘easy fixes’ to the detriment of our fundamental rights.

Call your MEP now and if you know others who are residents in the EU, tell them to call or write to their MEPs too.

You can find info on each of your MEPs on the SaveYourInternet.eu site, or on Parliament’s own site (just click on the maps).

If you’re outside of Europe, please consider sharing this blog post with your European friends and family and let them know that this is a red alert. We have just days until the vote.

Tell them to reject the Voss amendments, and reject Article 11 and 13, reject copyright filters, and reject ancillary rights on press snippets. Encourage your MEP to choose options that avoid filtering uploads or restricting links.


Here's a little about it that also hints on who would benefit from this new law.

An #OpenSource #Release of the #Freedom U540-C000's #Bootloader
The FU540-C000, which is available on the HiFive Unleashed development board, is a Linux capable board based on the open source Freedom platform. We built this chip to drive RISC-V Linux development, and it’s been incredibly successful. In the three months since we started shipping the board the RISC-V Linux distribution porting effort, with Debian and Fedora leading the charge, has come farther that it had come in the previous 5 years. It’s been incredible watching the open source community get behind the RISC-V ISA, and the level of progress has exceeded anything we could have predicted at the beginning of this year.

Google Data Collection


Professor Douglas C. Schmidt, Vanderbilt University

CONCLUSION
Google counts a large percentage of the world’s population as its direct customers, with multiple
products leading their markets globally and many surpa ssing 1 billion monthly active users.
These products are able to collect user data through a variety of techniques that may not be easily raspable by a general user. A major part of Google’s data collection occurs while a user is not directly engaged with any of its products. The magnitude of such collection is significant, especially on Android mobile devices. And while such information is typically collected without identifying a unique user, Google distinctively p
ossesses the ability to utilize data collected from other sources to de-anonymize such a collection.

Why Is Privacy Important?


Privacy Gives Us Dignity and Decency

I feel safe in assuming that all of you reading this (unless you are an inmate in a prison) use the toilet alone. No one watches you. You don’t want anyone to watch you.

But why do you shut the door? Is it because what you’re doing is a secret? Hardly! Is it because what you’re doing is immoral? Certainly not! You shut the door because what you’re doing is private. Forcing prison inmates to use the toilet in front of others is part of their punishment.

We all understand, instinctively, that watching someone shower, watching someone undress, watching someone use the toilet, and reading someone’s private journal is indecent and abusive. We understand, if we’re not mentally ill, that invading someone’s privacy is immoral.

Privacy Gives Us Safety

To be an effective identity thief, you need to know as much about your victim as possible. The less privacy your potential victims have, the more vulnerable they are.

In the United States, political parties are allowed to copy the government’s list of registered voters, which includes full names and addresses. Imagine that you have been physically abused by a former spouse. Would you want to register to vote?

Presently, in America, police are saying they want to be able to “hack into” our electronic devices whenever they have a warrant. However, for this to be possible, our devices have to have a defect that makes this possible. It’s bad enough that our devices often have unintentional defects that make them vulnerable. Who would want a device that is defective by design?

Weakening our security might make life easier for police, but in doing so it also makes life easier for criminals. It’s small comfort to know, after we become victims, that the criminals will be prosecuted. We don’t need more crime prosecution; we need more crime prevention.

We don’t need to trade away privacy for safety because privacy is a necessary precondition for safety. Security and privacy are pretty much the same thing.

Privacy Gives Us a Chance to Change the World for the Better

Every social movement that’s changed the world for the better, from abolishing slavery to defeating Hitler, has needed to plan without being effectively spied upon. If we, either individually or in groups, are to change our world for the better in the future, we’re going to need to be able to organize and plan privately.
