WTF?! My non-rooted phone had #Google Maps pre-installed, but I only use #OSMand for navigation etc.

Yesterday, I walked to a local restaurant, without using my phone, and had lunch there before walking back.

I never opened #GoogleMaps.

Today, I find a notification from Maps:
How was {restaurant name}?
Rate places to get smarter recommendations.

So it tracked and calculated where I ate without even opening my phone or the app.

Definitely time for #Pinephone / #LibreM

#privacy #Android

📚 I'm making a big high quality English Pepper&Carrot comic book using only FLOSS from scratch! Here is a first blog post report (a bit technical) of my research and test with #Krita, #Inkscape and #Scribus on #Kubuntu 18.04.2 LTS: davidrevoy.com/article735/

The licensing situation for #WikiTree is a shame too:

#IANAL and I get that licensing a #genealogy database while protecting privacy is complicated, but the least they could do is adopt an #ODbL (Open Database License). Given their mission of ensuring the family tree they are collecting is never lost, it makes sense to remove any legal obstacles that might come from #SuiGeneris database rights in some jurisdictions, allowing personal backups of the database etc.

"Moreover, if all our code were open, it could be easier for would-be hackers to defeat our privacy controls. We work hard to protect privacy. With all our code public we'd have to work even harder."

Not only does #WikiTree not even begin to understand the principles of #SoftwareFreedom (reasons to publish code other than encouraging replication), they believe in #SecurityByObscurity:

Which is a shame, because otherwise it's a cool site.

#RichardStallman has no intention of stepping down from the #GNUProject. Good news.

"I continue to be the Chief GNUisance of the GNU Project.
I do not intend to stop any time soon."

Sometimes the hardest thing to do with a creation is deciding on a name for it.

My talk on #restorativejustice and #transformativejustice will be particularly relevant to issues around Mastodon communities such as @SocialCoop which I use.

Several team members from Snowdrift.coop will be speaking at @SeaGL #SeaGL2019 in November

I reactivated my Facebook account today to check a couple of 'must-see' posts that I couldn't see otherwise. It was beyond creepy to see it telling me that I 'might know' a person I met offline, and offline only. The only way they could have tracked us together was through our phones. Our phones were at the same location for couple of weeks. I think we took taxis using the same mobile app, separately. That is all. I've never used Facebook from my phone.

As a lifelong Seattleite and most-of-my-lifelong free software person, I am *incredibly* honored to be giving one of the keynote addresses at @seagl@twitter.com this year.

Pergunta sincera:

O ministro @rsallesmma@twitter.com está em viagem pela Europa, mas a agenda no site do ministério diz que ele não tem compromissos, como mostrou o @TheInterceptBr@twitter.com theintercept.com/2019/09/28/a-

Alguém foi atrás (via LAI ou coisa assim) para saber quem está pagando essa viagem?

I get nervous when I think about how long it's taken community-oriented free software to have interfaces that resemble "could be comfortable on mobile" and how much more critical user freedom concerns will be when we're all wearing sensory-modifying wearable computing and how hard it will be for the FOSS world to adjust its software to comfortably work on augmented reality type systems
