The year is 5019. Humans, as we know them, are long gone. The Earth is inhabited chiefly by advanced, sapient machines.

For legacy reasons, everyone's name starts with "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible;".

The UN summit in september and COP25 in december, it looks like a large part of our future will probably be decided in New York and Santiago. I’ve been invited. And I’ve decided to go.
The tricky part is getting there without flying.
I haven’t solved that yet..

Innenministerium: "Wir wollen keine Verschlüsselungsverbote" | Das mit dem Verzicht auf Verbote ist gut. Aber was soll denn eine „gesetzlich geregelte Ausnahme“ anderes sein als eine „Hintertür“? heise.de/newsticker/meldung/In

I find any judgement measuring against arbitrary scales belong onto the phrenology rubbish pile - be it age by versioning usage, fitness by bmi, gender by choice of clothes, smarts by programming language and whatever shit measure somebody comes up next.

Firefox's Multi-Account Containers add-on is awesome but, what about all the random browsing you do on a daily basis? I stumbled across this gem the other day and it's taken containers to a whole new level but automagically creating temporary containers for new sites you browse to. I highly recommend it: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

Heute für @Digitalcourage beim #BfDI - schön in einer Behörde Gast zu sein, in der ich bisher keine einzige Überwachungskamera entdeckt habe!

reminder that the guy #BryanLunduke that claimed mozilla is sponsoring "#antifa email" is marketing director at #purism.
He claimed that #mozilla would by this, support a domestic terrorist organisation. In fact they where supporting riseup.net a hosting collective focused on security.
see here for reffer: todon.nl/@paulfree14/100317193

When I was pointing him out on his errors and miss understanding of what antifa actually is, he claimed me doing libel. I gave him my word that he will be driven off from here, when he does not change his agenda.

...now he's back as marketing director of #purism. How to respond to this?

The Greenland ice sheet is currently going through a major melting this week, covering almost half its surface — unprecedented in its extent for this early in the year.

This has not happened before.

"Empörung über Seehofer-Zitat zu Gesetzgebung"

Zitat:
"Man muss Gesetze kompliziert machen. Dann fällt das nicht so auf."

Upsi, da war #Seehofer aus versehen ehrlich. Sowas blödes.

Google randomly rejects my email, even when it’s a reply with no attachments and no HTML. Resending without modifications makes it go through. My reputation goes down when sending from domains which do not contain vowels. I have correctly set up MX records, DKIM, DMARC, SPF and there are no DNSBL entries. Using the Google postmaster tools only tells me “Not enough data for this domain.” I’m not the only one with this problem, and I can send email to other major providers just fine. Folks, please, for the love of god, stop using Google for email.

really I love all those cries for teaching ethics in STEM and make machine learning socially responsible etc etc - maybe just ask finally all the social scientists who turned developers to use their (double) qualification on BOTH ends?
