Salut le @chatperche !

Il serait bien de faire bien marcher l'accès au sur , avec le *s* dans « https » [1]. Apparemment a un certificat https et pourrait peut-être vous aider...

Il n'y a pas de sécurité à 100% sur l'Internet, mais le https est une composante importante pour réduire les risques des participant-e-s virtuel-le-s des ateliers...

Muse Group (Musescore, Audacity) Physically threatening FOSS dev w/ violence via Copyright Law 

Copyright dispute is causing the Audacity/Musescore person to physically threaten the FOSS dev -- who is expat Chinese -- with deportation back to China plus notify Chinese authorities of anti-China repositories.

Asshole deleted their comment cause of course they realized they are an asshole.

Ethiopian PM Abiy Ahmed:

Jan 2019: "So, if you're wondering what the proportion of Oromo in Tigray is, leave it for DNA to find out. [Hilarity in the audience] It's probably wrong to say this, but: those who went to Adwa, to fight, didn't just go and come back. Each of them had about 10 kids. [Loud laughter ... applause]."

Mar 2021: "The women in Tigray? These women have only been penetrated by men, whereas our soldiers were penetrated by a knife."

New blog post: How (not) to talk about #hackers in #media

Excessive use by the media of words “hacker”, “hacking”, “hack”, and the like, whenever a story concerns online break-ins, leaks, and cyberattacks is problematic:

- Makes it hard to inform the public accurately about causes of a given event, and thus makes it all but impossible to have an informed debate about it.

- Demonizes a creative community of tinkerers, artists, IT researchers, and information security experts.

I wrote an article about the need for low-carbon and #sustainable #computing and the path towards zero-carbon computing.


** The problem:
* By 2040 emissions from computing alone will be close to half the emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2°C. This growth in computing emissions is unsustainable: it would make it virtually impossible to meet the emissions warming limit.
* The emissions from production of computing devices far exceed the emissions from operating them, so even if devices are more energy efficient producing more of them will make the emissions problem worse. Therefore we must extend the useful life of our computing devices.
** The solution:
As a society we need to start treating computational resources as finite and precious, to be utilised only when necessary, and as effectively as possible. We need frugal computing: achieving the same results for less energy.
** The vision: please read the article, I'm out of characters.

Key witness in Assange case admits to lies in indictment

A maj­or wit­n­ess in the United States’ Depart­ment of Justice ca­se against Ju­li­an Assange has admitted to fabricat­ing key accusati­ons in the indict­ment against the Wiki­leaks found­er.

“They were trying to use things here [in Iceland] and use people in our country to spin a web, a cobweb that would catch Julian Assange”

Here's a Nature Astronomy News & Views description of why our criteria for longevity are "rigorous" and "onerous", by . There's a nice description of , with a warning that Maneage does not seem to cater to Windows users (oh dear!), and that "bells and whistles" for the generation are lacking.

It used to be that when you read a newspaper, the newspaper did not also read you. When you watched TV, your TV did not also watch you…

Today when you read, over two dozen organisations whose trackers are embedded on the site also read you. When you watch YouTube, YouTube also watches you.

This is not some tin-foil hat conspiracy theory, it’s simply the business model of mainstream technology. I call this business model people farming.


Bug report (since you say you work there): the dates are all "January 1, 2020" on articles like these, which was a little confusing until I realised that it's obviously a bug:

(But why not "January 1, 1970" ???)

BTW, congratulations on the initiative - the FPF sounds very promising!

This is a deeply researched and very readable article by Alexander Zaitchik that shows the profound ideological influence Bill Gates and his foundation have had on preserving "monopoly medicine" -- medicine driven by the same model rooted in artificial scarcity that Microsoft was.

I wish they had gone with a less absurd illustration (clearly a riff on the anti-vaxxer portrayal of Gates), but I still would encourage reading & sharing it widely.

Pekka Haavisto, Finland's foreign minister: "When I met the Ethiopian leadership in February [2021] they really used this kind of language, that they are going to destroy the Tigrayans, they are going to wipe out the Tigrayans for 100 years and so forth. If you wipe out your national minority, well, what is it?"
