Privacy is not a science, it is a human right

https://ar.al/2019/02/14/privacy-is-not-a-science-it-is-a-human-right/

My response to a dangerous turd of an article by Bart van der Sloot (co-founder of Amsterdam Privacy Week – sponsored by Palantir and Google – and docent teaching “Privacy and Big Data” at Tilburg University)

Mr. Sloot attempts to reframe privacy as a “science” and shame those who work to protect it for having a “pro-privacy agenda” & not being “neutral”. He also calls for “new rules” to disallow such biased behaviour.




I just want to thank all of the creators and maintainers of free software that I can use for free! I appreciate your hard work!

Instagram ranked worst for young people’s mental health [0].

I am very aware of the toxic side of IG and look forward to establishing Pixelfed Labs [1]. The goal is to get the community involved in solving these tough issues through discussions, proposals and implementations.

We can build better alternatives if we work together!

@polyplacophora @farlopito @fdroidorg Hi! Thank you for supporting us with a paid account. It means a lot. The process of publishing our app on F-droid has already started. We need to make a few steps before doing this. In the next couple of months it should be done. Your patience is greatly appreciated.



I have just switched from #Chromium to #Waterfox browser. The reason is that #Google is actively preventing users from installing some extensions such as #AdNauseam. AdNauseam is an ad blocker that additionally silently clicks the ads that it blocks, devaluing the analytics ( #surveilance ) data. Google of course profits from ads and doesn't want this to be happening, so this is exactly what we need to do. So please consider installing AdNauseam.



#OpenMW, a #FOSS rewrite of the #Morrowind engine, officially announces it will be merging the #TES3MP project -- a multiplayer fork of OpenMW.

I used to contribute to OpenMW in the past, and got to try the multiplayer in early stages -- big fun even back then. We need a free content for OpenMW in order to create a full #libregame equivalent for Morrowind.

Guantanamo Kid


Mohammed El-Gharani was no more than 14 years old when he left his native country, Saudi Arabia, in order to study English in Pakistan.

Shortly after 9/11, he was detained during a raid on his local mosque and taken into the custody of the US army. He was flown first to Kandahar and then to Guantánamo Bay, where he was held and abused for seven years without charge or trial. El-Gharani was one of the youngest prisoners at the camp, and one of the few detainees of African descent.

The journalist and researcher Jérôme Tubiana first told El-Gharani’s story in a Diary piece for the London Review of Books in 2011. In Guantánamo Kid, a collaboration with the comics artist Alexandre Franc, he translates this shocking and important story into graphic novel form.

The #Huawei debate falls too short. Security and trust can only be established by

1) releasing the code of critical infrastructure as #FreeSoftware and
2) implementing measures to verify code integrity.

A simple ban or secret audit won't help.
