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.
So we are beginning to see the fall of Facebook... it's going to be a slow moving disaster, but the foundation is crumbling, and this baby is coming down...
Now we need to address copyright.
When I started playing around with the idea of a radio station last week, I thought CC artists, because I can't afford a licsense... now I am faced with how many high quality artist are in CC licensing frameworks...
hackers.town:2600 is going to stand for the future that was lost.
As in all things we are going to restore the future. In this case, this means supporting only artists that release content in CC as they are taking risks and have skin in the game of bringing about the future we were once promised... with their art and their work.
You have my respect and dedication.

The Web is so centralized it is nearly dead already, and it seems Big Content wants to finish it off for good and use legislation to force the world back into the central push - only broadcast model of the last century...
The loopholes seem to be pretty small. The most promising options to counter this may be massive federation and p2p to ensure most content comes from small websites with very low revenue.
YouTube’s algorithm sent me this gem of a channel this morning: Nybbles and Bytes. It’s one of those PBS-style retro computing shows like Explaining Computers except for two very important differences:
1. The focus is on low level software programming on retro computers
2. The host is a trans femme
This is literally new new favorite channel and I hope anyone interested gives her a subscription because support our family!
