We now have organic waste containers at #cccamp19. Please put only bio-degradable material there, that means in general no bags or cups etc.
disposable plastic disaster
Overview of how much (or rather, little) is recyclable in terms of plastic, and just how much (about 250 pounds *per person* *per year*... more than the average person's weight in plastic per year) https://apps.npr.org/plastics-recycling/
Though, the article doesn't make as clear: even of the stuff that "can be" recycled, most isn't still. We need to end our addiction to disposable plastics before it ends us.

@nolan AMP's rewriting of stuff to be hosted by Google specifically in a way that increases their surveillance, with *pressure* to do so in exchange for a boost in traffic that will absolutely go away anyway once they've forced the entire ecosystem to move over to it, is a sure sign of monopolistic behavior that Google deserves to get hit with an antitrust lawsuit for more than anything else I've seen so far.
What do you call it when a vast network of cameras is linked together and their recordings are centralized and made available to police?
Not surveillance, according to Amazon. https://gizmodo.com/ring-barred-cops-from-using-surveillance-to-describe-it-1837380102
"Users who decline to share footage through the app may have police showing up at their door asking them to share in person if online requests don't work out. Law enforcement can also go to Amazon directly with a valid legal demand and bypass the user's consent to access the footage entirely." #privacy https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2019/08/dont-call-our-surveillance-products-surveillance-ring-tells-police/
We need to hold the Brazilian, US and EU governments accountable, as well as corporations which profit off of these enormous abuses which harm other human beings and our Mother Earth. This is not the time to hem and haw about how tragic climate change is. Billionaires are killing our planet. Billionaires are buying access through illegitimate governments—kleptocracies—and killing the only planet we call home. This is an unprecedented crisis that threatens all life on earth.
🌶️ : Im going to stop buying into the industry narrative about ad blockers. They are not ad blockers, they are content blockers. The content I am choosing to control happens to come from advertising networks that have proven to be vectors for malware infections and misbehaviour for years. I'm not blocking ads, I'm not stealing from you, I'm protecting my systems just like I would with an anti-virus program.
Password management is an essential task that we all need to own. Bad actors, loved-ones or co-workers can exploit our bad passwords and gain access to your #private information.
This #password manager will help you create and forget strong and unique passwords to protect your personal information and make you safer.
Für das Fediverse-Meetup auf dem #CCCamp19 fehlen sowohl Ort als auch eine Zeit. Wenn du kommen möchtest, dann bin ich für Vorschläge sehr dankbar 🙏
People often ask us: "Is Facebook listening in on me?" But in fact, the fight for #privacy is centered on a much bigger question: "Your devices gather so much data about you [that they can] predict what you’re saying without even actually listening in."
PSA: You can add https://data.c3voc.de/camp2019/everything.schedule.xml to the schedule app (in settings) or giggity to get the schedule with self-organized sessions from the wiki.
"Werde wütend und werde aktiv! Ärgere dich über die, die keine Verantwortung übernehmen, obwohl sie es könnten."

Wie kann es sein, dass die ganze Welt durch das Internet ständig vernetzt ist und dass ich trotzdem erst jetzt erfahre, dass der brasilianische Regenwald seit fast DREI WOCHEN brennt 😭
Ohne den Klimawandel würde es da nahezu dauerhaft regnen... wir sollten endlich mal anerkennen welche Mitschuld wir dabei haben und wie wir unseren Planeten täglich zerstören.
Apparently, gravity is the new hotness for storing energy. Like, stacking concrete blocks when there is too much energy, and unstacking them again when there is not enough.
