This is the most encouraging news I've read all year: Nonviolent protests are twice as likely to succeed as armed conflicts – and those engaging a threshold of 3.5% of the population have never failed to bring about change.

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

I launched a new blog this week. It's stupidly fast, uses zero external JS or CSS resources, is responsive, and supports modern features many sites don’t like dark style support. But Google just emailed me saying they might deprioritize it on Google because it doesn’t use AMP.

Hei nyt oikeasti, kuka myöntää paskoneensa Mastodonin suomennokset?

Nämä olivat aiemmin ihan kunnossa. Tiedän, koska runsas vuosi sitten kävin läpi kaikki suomitekstit. Sen jälkeen on toki tullut uuttakin tekstiä, joten on okei, että joku muu jatkaa käännöstyötä. Ja termivalinnat ovat aina osittain makuasioita.

Mutta ei saatana tartte hajottaa sitä, mikä on jo kunnossa.

Ei motivoi enää panostaa Mastodonin käännöksiin, kun kuka tahansa voi tärvellä niitä miten lystää.

We're in that awkward moment in tech history when IRC has better privacy than supposedly "end-to-end encrypted" messaging applications from Farcebook.

Facebook Messenger still scans all messages, even with end-to-end encryption. Scanning is done locally on the device before text messages are sent and after received messages are decrypted.

Facebook privacy lol


Yle: Tiesitkö? Facebook saa tietosi, vaikka sinulla ei ole FB-profiilia – Jatkossa nettisivun tulee kertoa, että tiedot luovutetaan somejätille


Hyvä näin. Itse olen koettanut suojautua näitä trackereitä vastaan mm. Privacy Badger -lisäosalla.

Surveillance Capitalists be like,

"I'm going to rob your house tonight. Uncheck these 200 checkboxes representing each item in your house that I am going to take. Any checkbox you fail to check gives us the permission to rob that item. And we can't guarantee the list here is exhaustive, nor that our 1000 partners won't rob your house."

We shouldn't be "opting out" of their violations of our rights. We should be asking what gives them the right to steal our behavioral data in the first place.

Self-hosting is also a form of self-care.

It gives you a sense of safety and control, peace of mind, and protects you from exploitation by the surveillance machine (at least partially).

Holy what!

"Amazon's home security company Ring has enlisted local police departments around the country to advertise its surveillance cameras in exchange for free Ring products and a “portal” that allows police to request footage from these cameras, a secret agreement obtained by Motherboard shows."

"We still have no clear picture what Cambridge Analytica did for Trump. Or what it did in any of the dozens of elections worldwide it claimed to have worked on – what Carroll calls “subversion on an industrial scale”. All we know is that both Cambridge Analytica and Facebook have gone to extraordinary lengths to prevent the facts coming out."


Metsäpaloja Grönlannissa, Siperiassa ja Alaskassa. Pelkästään kesäkuussa arktisen alueen metsäpalojen hiilidioksidipäästöt olivat yhtä suuret kuin Ruotsin vuotuiset päästöt, ja suuremmat kuin kesäkuiden 2010-2018 arktiset metsäpalopäästöt.
