The EFF helps to defend a language teacher against #patent abuse, which they argue as invalid under Alice:

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/07/effs-help-language-teacher-responds-ridiculous-patent-threat

They further used it as an example to Congress on how disastrous bad patents can be.

I love seeing stories like this: I support the EFF with membership not only because of the good, important work that the do at a policy and activism level, but also because of the work they do in defending the rights of individuals and small groups that would be unable to do so themselves.

La concentraci贸n y el monopolio tanto en lo que se refiere a los centros de datos (hoy abrumadoramente localizados en Estados Unidos y gestionados por empresas privadas), como en cuanto a las plataformas y servicios online, provoca enormes asimetr铆as econ贸micas, impacta sobre el derecho a la informaci贸n y facilita la vigilancia, entre otros problemas.

dear website designers:

that thing you do, where i scroll down and down and when i hit the bottom of the article, oh whoops! suddenly i'm at the top of a completely different page?

that is fucking abysmal design. it's user hostile. it makes your website unusable. it makes me NEVER EVER want to come back to your website. for anything. more to the point, it tells me that YOU don't want to use your website either. and nor do the people who pay you.

Last week I presented/defended my final . It was about the importante of the /#LibreSoftware to (and how its important to foster it during classes). The reviewers like it very much. The source files are available at: notabug.org/adfeno/Trabalho_so . If you want a , just tell me. I also mentioned the trap - and its autoexecution and possible issues related to freedom of the software.

Apresentei meu de conclus茫o de semana passada. Foi sobre a import芒ncia da filosofia do universit谩ria (e de seu fomento nas disciplinas). Os avaliadores dele e da defesa gostaram muito. Os arquivos fonte do meu TCC est茫o em notabug.org/adfeno/Trabalho_so . Se quiser que eu envie um me avise. Tamb茅m mencionei a armadilha do - e seu problema de autoexecu莽茫o e poss铆veis problemas relacionados 脿 liberdade do software.

Refiz tudo em / , ficou at茅 melhor. Inclusive semana passada foi o dia da defesa. 馃槑 Os avaliadores deram retorno positivo.

Entreguei diferen莽as entre revis玫es do meu de conclus茫o de em ao meu orientador (feito em mode , e ) , depois ele me falou que "estava em desconformidade com as normas" (sem dizer ou marcar onde e como corrigir) e pediu o "arquivo do /#Word" :S !!! Como ativista do , ignorei e espero resposta dele. pode guardar coment谩rios e marca莽玫es.

This is a bit depressing.

This underlying problem needs to become a priority. Either pressuring #github to go free software or getting free software to go elsewhere.

Github becoming synonymous with open source just muddies free software waters more.

Free Software needs free tools.

Stayed up late learning a little bit about some #Minetest and certain mod APIs to fulfill the requests of my two children: one dragon that "shoots" (spawns) ghosts, and another orange dragon that shoots oranges.

I don't have time to re-learn 3d modelling with Blender, so we just modified textures of existing dragons of one of the mods during the day (in #GIMP), which they had fun with. I did some hacking during the day, but I needed to do too much research, so it was hard to keep them engaged with a combination of Lua scripting and web browsing.

So they'll be excited in the morning. I added other small features they won't be expecting and learned (from code) some gameplay features we were unaware of. Maybe they'll get interested in hacking it themselves if I show them how easy it is to make certain tweaks, and if factor any new code I write in such a way as well.

I've been hearing a lot of prominent people speak about surveillance and privacy, but when I hear Richard Stallman talk about it, it really struck a chord with me.

"We need a law. Fuck them 鈥 there鈥檚 no reason we should let them exist if the price is knowing everything about us. Let them disappear. They鈥檙e not important 鈥 our human rights are important. No company is so important that its existence justifies setting up a police state. And a police state is what we鈥檙e heading toward."

Speaking at Nesta FutureFest in July

I鈥檒l be talking about how we can move beyond surveillance capitalism in Europe to fund and create alternative ethical technological infrastructure that鈥檚 not mired in Silicon Valley鈥檚 toxic business model.
