France and Germany just cut a deal to save the EU's #CopyrightDirective -- and made it much, much worse (PLEASE SHARE THIS POST!)
#Article13 has lurched back into life due to a last minute Franco-German deal:
Any profit-making site over 3 years old will have to install YouTube-style automatic copyright filters on all uploads.
In practice, they would have to outsource it to Google etc. Big tech would choose what we see, even on tiny indie sites.
Please tell your MEPs today, in your own words, that this is not acceptable. They vote on this next Monday:
And this is how "Tracking people via WiFi (even when not connected)" works
#tracking #people #WiFi #privacy
#Android #WiFi #Manager
Manages your device's WiFi based on your location.
Not only prevents "tracking via WiFi" by not broadcasting the MAC address in unknown cell tower areas, but also may save battery when switching off the WiFi you forgot about when walking away.
I published a new article. Today it's about #WKD #OpenPGP and key discovery. It's split into a part that explains what the current methods are to recieve a public key of someone else and how WKD comes in here, followed by a hands-on part on how to setup WKD for your domain. Hope you enjoy 😉
Great article from @firstname.lastname@example.org (in German) about the French Government deployment of Matrix: https://www.golem.de/news/statt-whatsapp-frankreich-wandert-in-die-matrix-1902-139167.html
Service announcement - #OpenDocument Editors devroom talk from Andrea Pescetti (https://fosdem.org/2019/schedule/event/text_mining_with_openoffice/) is cancelled, we move Michael Stahl's lightning talk about the Writer ChangeTracking rework into that slot - https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Events/2019/FOSDEM#Lightning_Talks - so there's probably a lightning talk slot or two free now :)
@amolith Enigmail automatically fetches keys over WKD if someone is composing an e-mail to you. K9Mail sadly doesn't but OpenKeychain does key lookups over WKD. Some other software too (Mailpile, GpgOL for Outlook).
As far as I've seen on the mailing lists ProtonMail will support WKD lookup eventually.
You can get the full list of supported software/providers from https://wiki.gnupg.org/WKD
Have a nice day! :)
