Wir haben Verfassungsbeschwerde eingereicht

Übrigens ist der Kontrollverlust beim Einsatz von Staatstrojanern vorprogrammiert, denn diese Schadsoftware funktioniert nur, wenn Sicherheitslücken geheimgehalten werden.

Unser Video veranschaulicht das:

It's been a year since the CJEU decided on the so-called #SchremsII case, which ultimately invalidated #PrivacyShield. Max Schrems wrote a statement on the judgment's anniversary, about responsible authorities and long-term solutions. Read the statement and watch the video here:

🇬🇧 Yesterday’s LIBE Committee Opinion on the #DigitalServicesAct #DSA gives me a great mandate for the negotiations to defend our fundamental rights online.

“In 1972, scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology made a bold prediction. By developing a scientific model that considered the way that humans and the planet interact with each other, the researchers determined that society was heading toward collapse by the mid-21st century, driven largely by the forces of growing population and capital over-exploiting limited planetary resources…Turns out, we're right on schedule”

The Mastodon instance run by @digitalcourage has a maximum toot length of 1024, and the NGO that runs it actively encourages journalists to join the fediverse.

An account costs 1€/month. Most of the local toots are in German, but most users read English, too.

Hey #fediverse, since both and seem to have been abandoned by their admins/mods, are there any active journalism-friendly instances that would be a good home for @tecc ?

We're very happy to announce a new era in Tor: Arti, a pure-Rust Tor implementation.
Thanks to funding from ZcashOMG, we can finally move the Arti project up in our priorities list!

Philippe was an ardent defender of Free/Libre Software, which he lived and thought as an essential humanism. He loved Humans and the whole Humanity!

He played with arts, savoured knowledge, filled himself with sharing.

More than once I caught in his eyes the almost childlike spark of the purest wonder. Philippe was an eternal wonderer, a lover of everything; his passion was contagious.

... we will miss him so much... =~~((

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... :((((

Europe makes the case to ban biometric surveillance. I spoke to for about my transparency lawsuit against the unethical video lie detector #iBorderCtrl and why I support a ban of #biometric #masssurveillance within the EU:
