Big win for #privacy and #openstandards in #Germany :

Brandenburg banned the usage of #Microsoft products (especially Teams) in schools.

Let's hope that initiatives like @digitalcourage will have bigger influence after this.

🇬🇧 EP Home Affairs Committee clears the way for #TERREG. This means: Orban will be deleting websites in your country, without a court order. Unacceptable and probably violates fundamental rights.

My press release:

Plenary vote coming up.

#rC3 schedule website with an easier-to-read font, fixed scrollbars, and sticky table header:

The Readme contains a step-by-step guide on how to use it with the Stylus Firefox Addon.

Alternative for web browser:

Alternative for Smartphone: scan this code with Giggity

I started creating a user style to make the #rC3 Fahrplan more readable for me. (so far: change font, no bold font)


How often do we have sex, how frequently do we masturbate, how easy is it for us to reach orgasm… These are just a few of the data menstruation apps collect and store about us.

That Zoom shut down accounts and calls where people were talking about Tiananmen Square is bad enough. But you need to understand the subtext: Zoom says that their calls are encrypted and private, and yet they can monitor them.

Incredible news from the EU: mandating open interoperability for communication silos, or face a 10%(!!!) fine of worldwide turnover.,,,, - you know where to find us... :) 🙋🏼‍♀️

🇬🇧Oh, leak of latest #TERREG-proposal from Council:

📛 No clear exclusion of mandatory #uploadfilters

An #insightful overview of technlogies being used to track people in malls and shops. Rather frightening, IMHO. Bluetooth, face recognition, thermal imaging - Orwellian stuff in our everyday life.

🇬🇧 EU governments want to be able to intercept encrypted communications. That would be the end of secure #encryption altogether and would open backdoors also for hackers, foreign intelligence etc. Stop this attack on our digital security!

Okay so EU Member States -- led by Germany, the land of privacy® -- propose again to prohibit #e2ee #encryption because, you know, #terrorism and stuff.

We are delighted to team up with @senfcall for this year's Freedom not Fear! Yeah!

One can say: activism against Biometric Mass Surveillance on
