Based on my drawing from about one week ago I did some larger painting out of it.

Just learned today who Cory Doctorow is.

I now have some more DRM-free epubs to read.

I watched Nomadland. It was pretty good, definitely recommend. At first I thought it was a criticism of capitalism, later I wasn't so sure anymore.

‘Men have a tendency to eat meat so they’re perceived as manly, and changing that gender stereotype could lead to a reduction in carne consumption, according to a UCLA study’

We are living in a climate emergency with animal agriculture being the leading cause of most of the environmental problems that we are facing today. This world urgently needs more selfless protectors and less toxic masculinity: for the animals, the planet & for your own health.

Am I the only one for whom F-Droid doesn't seem to work properly anymore? I don't get notifications for updated apps since a while, and when I install a new app it gets stuck in "pending" state indefinitely.

Asking for financial help 

Hey folks, it feels a bit rude to ask again, but I’m still struggling to find work right now and don’t have much money left. I don’t have enough to pay rent or bills right now. If you can spare it, I would really appreciate if you could help me out.

Because I heard some chatter about "inbox zero" recently and can't really relate to it:

Do you have problems keeping up with your email inbox?

I just learned that Philippe Aigrain passed away, in his house in the mountains, near Argeles (in the South-West of France). I am so sad.

Philippe had been my inspiration for my research on software patents when I was a student.

Later we co-founded La Quadrature du Net together.

In addition to being an incredibly generous and sensitive person, a great friend, Philippe was a brilliant thinker, philosopher, writer, programmer, strategist, poet...

What a loss for the world... :((((

a brief history:

3 guys create dotCloud during Y Combinator Summer batch 2010
rename to "Docker" and debut at PyCon 2013, released as open source
2014: Windows Server, IBM Cloud, and AWS announce collaborations, raise $15M Series B from Greylock Partners, IVP, Benchmark, Trinity
Federal agencies and In-Q-Tel (CIA) invest and/or maintain contracts since 2016
in 2019, secured $35 million in new financing to restructure
4 months ago, Docker Raises $23MM series B
and finally, today: after granting it admin rights upon initial installation, Docker started asking for $5/mo from me to not install software every day

So our data that was stolen from my University (TU Berlin) in a massive hack is currently being distributed on the darknet. It's bittersweet to know that I run one of the stronger servers of the "darknet", meaning I'm currently helping to distribute my own data to criminals.

So I stubbed my toe tonight (on the way to the bathroom while basically still sleeping). It hurt like hell.
This morning it somehow still hurts, and when I investigated I saw that it's partially black and a bit bloody 😳

« In a new research report, #EDRi reveals the shocking extent of unlawful #biometric mass #surveillance practices in #Germany, the #Netherlands and #Poland which are taking over our public spaces like train stations, streets, and shops. The EU and its Member States must act now to set clear legal limits to these practices which create a state of permanent monitoring, profiling and tracking of people. »

How lovely it is to see a dedicated Wikipedia page for open theses:

Especially when the people responsible for writing it credit me as one of the OG examples 🙃
