Mein Talk vom #rc3 über Gefahren für und Probleme des #Fediverse ist nun endlich in ganzer Länge online!

Einen Talk macht man ja auch immer um aus der eigenen Bubble raus zu kommen und er war auch viel Aufwand. Heute wird wohl kaum mehr neue
rc3 Talks schauen. Also wenn ihr Leute kennt die sich für das Thema #Fediverse, Inhaltsmoderation oder sich mit dem Digital Services/Markets Act beschäftigen. Teilt es doch bitte mit ihnen. 💖 :boost_ok:

#Spotify zieht enorm viel kulturelles Kapital an & die Künstler*innen haben sehr wenig davon. Aber auch die User*innen werden ausgebeutet. „Das eigentliche Geschäftsmodell von Spotify ist nicht Musik, sondern sind Daten, die sie verkaufen“, so Patrick Stegemann.

Thought experiment: You can spend 10-15€ on spotify each month, meaning 120-180€ per year. For music there can disappear at any moment and that you'll never own, or you can spend 10-15€ each months to buy an album on Bandcamp (or any other service that provides DRM-free downloads), support the artists more and retain your personal music library even when Bandcamp goes out of business.

The former is a subscription plan, the latter is an investment plan.

#uxnseq is a proof of concept music sequencer that uses the Uxn VM and runs inside of #sndkit. Sequences are programmed in Tal and compiled to ROMs. The ROMs are loaded into sndkit, where they control signal generators designed to modulate things like the pitch of an oscillator.

"Web3 ist das Internet, das es zu verhindern gilt. [...] Die angedachten Bestandteile sind [...] fundamental kaputt. Sie bringen nur ohnehin schon wohlhabenden Menschen Wohlstand und lösen kein einziges der großen Menschheitsprobleme, im Gegenteil."

Okay, so: German court decided on Jan. 20th 2022 that sites will need to host Google fonts locally.

Visitors are otherwise entitled to receive 100€ in recompensation for Google fonts transferring IP numbers to Google servers.
Google uses fonts to track users, especially if they are logged into only one other server, where stored personal data might identify them.

Did you know that one of the ways Android and IOS reduce energy consumption is by using a unified system-level notification provider?
UnifiedPush is FOSS implementation of the same idea that could help projects such as #pinephone and #linuxphones in general by providing both a framework to reduce battery consumption and a more unified interface to code notifications on.

If you follow FOSS, would you please boost?

A bit over 5 years ago, I wrote this: davelane.nz/new-zealand-depend explaining how the country I live in (NZ) has allowed itself to become completely dependent on Microsoft technology and why that compromises our national sovereignty. *Most* other countries are the same. Thankfully, others are (very slowly) realising this fundamental threat: timesofindia.indiatimes.com/bl sur.conectas.org/en/digital-so blogs.lse.ac.uk/brexit/2021/05 and calling it what it is: digital colonialism.
