Der Versuch den Schutz von Kindern gegen das Grundrecht (auch von Kindern) auf Privatsphäre auszuspielen ist so durchschaubar wie es unanständig ist. Mit der @digiges@twitter.com und anderen zivilgesellschaftlichen Organisationen wenden wir uns gegen eine neue #VDS:

MASSIVE:

Access to an intrusive and massive database of what you do online is finally being rolled out by the Home Office.

Collection of “Internet Connection Records” and “the Filter” came in thru the post Snowden Investigatory Powers Act. #IPACT #snowden #privacy

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

Wenn #Assange aus Großbritannien an die USA ausgeliefert wird, wäre das ein (weiterer) heftiger Schlag gegen die Pressefreiheit und Menschenwürde.

Eilantrag unterschreiben. Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt.

Hello Im Martyn. I’m starting up hostinwales, following the models of hostinscotland (funded by the Scottish government) and hostinireland.com (industry funded). Have had some conversations with the Welsh government and a lot of data and comms providers about this but I need to get some momentum going.

I’d love to hear about web and software developments going on in Wales!

Data protection: Microsoft 365 banned in Baden-Württemberg’s schools!

As we have seen in BW, in time it’s a likely prediction that more states in Germany and in countries abroad will follow suit and look for a suitable, GDPR-compliant solution. Read more!

Wir erhalten gerade einige Anfragen zum Thema TrustPID. Das Projekt wurde uns 2021 vorgestellt. Wir haben damals auf unterschiedliche datenschutzrechtliche Problemfelder hingewiesen, insbesondere auf die Anforderungen einer wirksamen Einwilligung. Wir haben aber KEINE abschließende Projektbewertung vorgenommen oder irgendeine Art von Zustimmung gegeben. Es wurde nur vereinbart, dass es zukünftig weitere Beratungsgespräche mit den entsprechenden Telekommunikationsdiensteanbietern geben wird.

I work at a ccTLD (.IS), and lately we are seeing a *lot* of new accounts immediately registering multiple domains that all had been registered in the past. I suspect we're not the only ccTLD that sees this.

We know of at least two instances of this being used to take over social media accounts that had e-mails in expired domains set as backup e-mail addresses.

This seems to be organized and well-resourced.

Please double-check you don't use e-mails in any expired domains anywhere.

Not sure folk are aware that using Google fonts by URL in their CSS undermines the privacy of each and every site visitor, sending their IP to GG with every visit. How? Because with each visit they download the font from GG, not your server.

If you will use GG fonts, don't do this

@import url('fonts.googleapis.com/css?famil[...]

Download that font, and resource it locally instead

@font-face {
font-family: FontName';
font-style: normal;
src: url('../fonts/FontName.woff2');
[...]
}

Please add this on your websites :

<script type="text/javascript">
document.body.textContent = 'Please disable JavaScript to view this site.'

So sad to see one of the best email apps for Android #FairEmail is discontinued, just b/c shitshow corp #Google mis-detected it as #spyware.

Apparently its complaints process is so screwed that the FairEmail dev rather threw his app in the bin.
