For an embarrassing long time, I thought "Fintech" is short for "Finnish technology".

I have a session lined up, but I feel so good that I don't really know what to talk about.
This is awesome!

(If I overthink it enough, I'll find an issue I can work on for sure, but let's not do that just yet :) )

What is the least observed provision of the #GDPR?

Article 14 info as to source of personal data?
Article 25 data protection by design and by default?

Something else?

Mit meinem Beschwerdegenerator "Träcktor" kann man auch dagegen vorgehen, es gibt dort einen Punkt "nur Minimalauswahl akzeptiert". Juristisch gilt alles Voreingestellte als "keine Einwilligung". Alle Cookie-IDs für Werbung und Marktforschung sind ohne Einwilligung rechtswidrig.

Ich nutze es auch privat viel, Erfolgsquote der Anschreiben liegt schon ohne Beschwerde bei 40-50%.

!!Wir haben gewonnen!! Das Landgericht Köln hat heute geurteilt, dass unsere Veröffentlichung des staatlichen Glyphosat-Gutachtens keine Urheberrechtsverletzung war!

Das ist ein kleines Stück Rechtsgeschichte und ein Urteil gegen das #Zensurheberrecht.

#LibreOffice is our everyday go-to for spreadsheets and documents. Why use products from #privacy invading big tech companies, when there is a legit #opensource alternative with a rapid development cycle?

Better yet, you can be part of the change to smaller tech:

blog.documentfoundation.org/bl

Make the decision to use #foss products.

For an embarrassing long time, I thought "Fintech" is short for "Finnish technology".

Erkenntnis des Tages:
hat den Vorteil, dass man beim Installieren von Paketen nicht darauf achten muss, ob dabei noch gnome bloat als dependency mitinstalliert wird.

@cryptpad Any plans on adding ways to contact your dpo on you website? For GDPR related reasons

Me: This software is coded badly and thus has tons of vulnerabilities. Please don't force me to use it. Here are some good alternatives.

other Person: But they are fixed now, so no more vulnerabilities exist, right?

Me: No, that's not how it works..

other Person: oh... anyways, you have to use that software

The other day at work we were having a zoom meeting and some people were giving a presentation. They finished and everyone was saying "thanks! bye!" and I said "thanks! bye!" and hung up, but then I realized the meeting wasn't over yet

In French, when you speak to someone, how do you translate "you"? "tu" or "vous"?
Here is a schema to help you 🙂

Mastodon.host

What sets mastodon.host appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 2048 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • Audio upload (not limited to videos only).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • trending tags are displayed on the main UI ( and a more complete view is available here)
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your mastodon.host account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your mastodon.host username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • If you want to be on a more quiet, moderated instance, or use another AP implementation, we host a Pleroma instance for the convenience. This is the same fediverse as with Mastodon, but with a different default UI and way more optimized backend. Try and see which one you prefer !
  • Now if you want a different UI, the stock mastodon one does not please you, you can check Pinafore.
  • We do also host for the convenience a video Conference server ( Jitsi Meet )
  • We have a mastodon relay for other instances to bootstrap their timelines: https://relay.mastodon.host

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.
