Reading C-311/18 /#PrivacyShield,
EU Commission (2010/87/EU) art. 4a and EU EDPB FAQs point 5 I can only infer that it's unethical and illegal for US providers to state they can transfer and process personal data even when they claim tha data stays in EU (which it doesn't).

Change my mind.

L'obiettivo di QUEST non è solo facilitare la comunicazione degli eventi.

Pensiamo che il mondo sia pieno di macchine che viaggiano con unǝ solǝ passeggerǝ, di persone che vorrebbero andare a un concerto ma non hanno mezzi per raggiungerlo, di persone che sono sole e non sanno con chi andare a un evento.

QUEST punta a risolvere questi problemi, dandovi un modo per mettervi in contatto e organizzarvi tra livelloidi (e non solo).

Third-party cookies enable massive personal data sharing across many firms.

In 2021, I examined how just a few visits to 2 websites lead to an ongoing exchange of personal identifiers that many data brokers use to follow+profile everyone across the web:

In Jan 2020, Google announced it will 'phase out' third-party cookies in Chrome, and thus opaque marketing surveillance across myriads of companies, 'within two years'.

In Jun 2021, it said it will 'end' doing so in late 2023.

Now it says it may 'begin' doing so in late 2024.

Il CEO e fondatore di #NextCloud Frank Karlitschek è stato avvicinato da un avvocato di #Microsoft per concludere un accordo.

Microsoft ha offerto a Nextcloud vantaggi sotto forma di collaborazione e marketing. Ad esempio, promuovere il logo di Nextcloud nel materiale di marketing di Microsoft, a patto che Nextcloud ritirasse la denuncia antitrust.

Microsoft era un'azienda di idioti, bugiardi e imbroglioni 40 anni fa, e lo sono ancora oggi.

Hello, I am the project coordinator for the Network Music Festival which ran as an extremely large all-online event that in 2020. We worked on a teeny budget and, as much as possible, used non-capitalist tools.

Part of our goal in doing this was to be able to help other online events organise without the use of corporate tool chains.

If you are planning a non-profit or low-budget event and would like some advice about using less silicon valley spyware I am super happy to talk to you about the advantages and disadvantages of the free tools we used. I can also try to do introductions to folks who might host you at free or low cost and can also provide some training at no charge. (Ideally I would meet with somebody in your org who would go on to train others. I would be especially pleased if some blog posts and the like were also generated.)

We're all at different places and getting away from capitalist tools is a process. A journey even! Which takes more than one step. Wherever you are on that journey, do get in touch if you think a chat might be valuable.

Registration is now open for the #LibreOffice Conference 2022, September 28 - October 1, in Milan! Sign up here:

Web and app publishers that use RTB systems from Google or other companies have no control over with whom personal data on their users is being shared.

Google (and other adtech firms that e.g. rely on the TCF) claim to have control over who they share data with but that's a lie.

#Minetest doesn't have a central auth system. Each server is an independent service with its own account system, moderation, and rules.

There's no central service to snoop on messages and ban users. Decentralised, just like how the Internet should be
