As my EFF colleagues Gennie Gebhart and Bennett Cyphers explain, Safegraph's claims that they don't sell this data are just a shell-game.

This beast has been gathering dust for over two years….

I notice that packing a bag has become a thing again.

Periodically, I like to check up on how the SCO vs. IBM case is going. It was finally settled in November 2021.

Meanwhile, SCO no longer exists, Darl McBride went bankrupt, and debtors had to pay IBM $14,250,000. zdnet.com/article/last-of-orig

Hello Mastodon art people! I’m Julia, an illustrator and naturalist from Germany. I’ve quit all social media a few years ago because addictive algorithms, ads, infinite scrolling and tracking surveillance were killing my creativity.
Mastodon is likely the last social media experiment I’ll try. Here are some birds for you, because although I’ve left Twitter, I love drawing birds.

Thing that is lovely: Seeing so many people obviously coming from a place/culture where accessibility is secondary, being so quick and willing and eager to adopt it here.

Thank you everyone who's been adding alt-text to their images. I know it's a hard habit to get into, but the blind community here will absolutely love you for it <3

A quick thread on in the importance of being careful what data you share - even if you're the Queen. Today, Her Maj tweeted this lovely picture, gor bless er, etc. You might think that the contents of the red box would be official business. And you'd be right. 1/6

I stopped putting a header above my cross posts from Twitter. Bad idea?

Watching eps.1 of ‘All Of Us Are Dead’ and all I can think of is that the Susceptibel number is high, Removal rate (thusfar) unknown and Transmission rate pretty high.

Will the authorities in eps.2 go for social distancing, mouthmasks, or shutdowns?
