It looks like, following my article https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/news/cloudy-risks-gdpr, something is moving in the right direction:
#Microsoft is being investigated by the European Data Protection Supervisor:
Ce soir cari de camarons et crevette, riz rougail tomates comme à la #Réunion :-)
Yesterday the US Chief Twitter Officer threatened to impose tariffs on French wine or "it might be on something else" he said.
Let's hope he doesn't discover that locking out our #GitHub repositories would affect us even more.
It seems like they want to push the world to stop being reliant on US owned corporations. I think we should satisfy their demand this time to make them happy.
Yesterday #Microsoft owned
@github locked out of their accounts developers of Iranian nationality living around the world.
Today is them but what if one day the #EU decides to tax properly US corporations and we wake up finding our accounts blocked?

Sysadmins: "It's secure because it's in a container"
Off-premise chat for your business. Wonderful idea.
Well, there is a software with excellent Federated Cloud Sharing capabilities: https://owncloud.com/de/federated-cloud-sharing/

Facebook devra lâcher 5 milliards de dollars d'amende - https://www.courrierinternational.com/article/reseaux-sociaux-facebook-devra-lacher-5-milliards-de-dollars-damende
> Les autorités américaines de régulation infligeraient à Facebook une amende record de 5 milliards de dollars pour manquement à la protection des données personnelles, annoncent certains médias. Une décision qui résulte d’un accord à l’amiable avec le réseau social, mais qui est déjà critiquée.
You should block adverts on your devices. And make your friends and family block ads on their devices.
People who watch adverts are like anti-vaxxers - blissfully unaware of the benefits of herd-immunity. And dangerously undermining our collective safety.
"Math is not going to save society"
Exactly! To many people think that technological purity is the thing to save us all.
We have to ensure that people understand the problems and that we have an effective societal remedy.

Many young people prioritise convenience over their privacy.
Can we judge people for acting in line with modern society?
I think we need to engage in consciousness raising. Make it part of the conversation that they're making a trade. If they understand and agree then that's fine. But they need informed consent.
