Happy to see that @EC_OSPO has published the study about "funding mechanisms for sustaining for public services" in which I have marginally participated.

Lots to read to see if some of my recommendations/comments have been included.

I've seen that at least @libreoffice has been mentioned as critical Open Source software for public services (on which we recently did a bug bounty organised by @EU_Commission).


From today you can start finding your favourite EU institutions also on !

@EU_Commission @EC_DIGIT @EDPS @EC_OSPO @ @ombudsman @FRA @Curia and hopefully soon many others will allow you to read their news without having to depend on, as some say, privacy and ethically challenged corporations.

Dear Jack,

you don't need to resign.

We won't tell anyone that you really fancy running a few instances instead of running Twitter ;-)

90% of donations to the @libreoffice projects are coming from individuals.
Companies unfortunately do not contribute that much in economical or material way on an project that is the major barrier between freedom of choice and a full monopoly by Microsoft in the office productivity market.

Organisations should realise that a strong LibreOffice helps in creating a healthy competition and lower also their costs.

So, please, contribute in any way you can to help yourself.

Vaccine sorted!

No changes yet detected in relation to signal strength.

For those unlucky people that never had the chance to see it and/or eat it, this is the 'gnocco fritto'. A speciality from my hometown, badly copied by the surrounding areas, which is a kind of fried bread.

Now also EDPS is saying loud and clear that friendly alternatives to the usual social are available.

I'm wondering if the EDPB shouldn't intervene with an official communication against as they are once again misleading the public, first with their invalid SCCs and now by stating they comply and exceed EDPB's recommendations.

There is absolutely nothing in their blog and attached document that resembles any of the additional measures required to comply with EDPB's recommendations but it seems like it doesn't really matter to them.


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.
