@pluralistic Great quote on NPR yesterday! “If the car manufacturers' point is that they have built mobile surveillance platforms that non-consensually harvest so much data from us that if the wrong person gets access to them, they can destroy your life, then I think that the answer should be for them to stop spying on us with our cars,” Doctorow said.

Lerntyp: wenn Sie Deutsch lernen, und schwer zu verstehen finden, hören Sie Podcast auf 0,75 Geschwindigkeit in der App. Das finde ich ganz nützlich.

A redação do artigo 16 é problemática nesta parte:

> permitida a sua utilização, cópia, alteração e distribuição sem restrições por todos os órgãos e entidades abrangidos por este artigo.

Pois não concede as permissões a toda a sociedade, e sim apenas a órgãos e entidades públicas. Sem dúvida, já é um avanço. Mas perdemos a oportunidade de ter tentado uma emenda no Congresso para melhorar essa redação.

Está no Diário Oficial da União. As licenças de software livre na administração pública são uma determinação da Lei n. 14.063/2020! Ela se aplica a todos os poderes e entes federativos. É a conversão da MPV 983/2020, e foi aprovada no Congresso e sancionada sem vetos em relação à parte de licenças de software livre.

It's out in the official gazette. Free software licenses in public administration are now determined by Law n. 14063/2020! It applies to all branches of government and all federation entities. It's been converted from MPV 983/2020, and it underwent approval in Congress and was sanctioned without vetoes in regards to the free software licenses part.

“The official reason given by Google for the removal of #Fediverse apps is that these apps can be used to access […] content which are dedicated to hate speech.” (hat tip to @Rigby_Koyaanisqatsi)

Somehow this doesn't motivate removal of other apps from Google's app store. What could explain this difference?

A better explanation, from @pluralistic:

“The more freedom you have to leave Google, the bigger a risk you pres­ent to Google.”

In this episode of the , Douglas Rushkoff interviews Dríade Aguiar, from Mídia Ninja. The intro monologue is inspiring as always, and the interview is excellent.

In episode 208 of the Netzpolitk Podcast, Markus Beckedahl interviews Zoë Beck, author of the book Paradise City. Markus says at some point (1h 7min) that besides Cory Doctorow @pluralistic he knows no other author that handles those themes as well as she does, and she thanks him for the compliment.

Sorry if I got it wrong, my German is clearly not good enough yet. That's why I listen to German podcasts, so I can learn the language better.

But the episode has piqued my interest in her book!

But the monkey's paw is not inevitable. There are plenty of ways to make Big Tech less powerful while encouraging alternatives, including co-ops and nonprofits. Instead of copyright filters, we could have blanket licenses that directly pay artists.

Instead of moderation mandates, we could have interop mandates that let users choose what is and isn't allowed in their own conversations:


Today,there are many proposals to fix Big Tech, but too often, these proposals start from the premise that Big Tech is permanent and there is no need to consider the way new rules would impact potential competitors, because they're already doomed.

Last year's EU Copyright Directive, for example, with its mandate for expensive copyright filters for online services (how expensive? Google spend $100m developing Contentid, a toy version of what the EU rule requires).


This weekend there's an exhibition by @mondstern at @topio in Berlin displaying 104 pictures of (mostly) apps from #FDroid! ❤️

Monopsony chickenizes whose groups of workers, even whole industries. Amazon has chickenized publishers. Uber has chickenized drivers. Facebook and Google have chickenized advertisers. Apple has chickenized app creators.

Apple is a monopsony. So is Facebook.

Market concentration is like the Age of Colonization: at first, the Great Powers could steer clear of one another's claims. If your rival conquered a land you had your eye on, you could pillage the one next door.


As the EU works through the contours of the new Digital Services Act, my EFF colleagues Svea Windwehr, Christoph Schmon and Jillian York have published a set of four principles for sound digital platform regulation.


This is the core of my critique, the reason I wrote this book: we should be suspicious of all corporate control over our lives, and should insist on nothing less than absolute technological self-determination.

The idea that "if you're not paying for the product, you're the product," suggests the simplistic solution of just charging for everything. But the reality is that in a monopoly, you're the product irrespective of whether you're paying.


You've probably heard Zuboff's excellent coinage "Surveillance Capitalism" and perhaps you've read the paper it was introduced in, or the book that it led to.

Today, I've published a response to that book, "How to Destroy Surveillance Capitalism."


In our August Newsletter, we are evaluating reasons why the European Commission should avoid using the term "intellectual property". We also asked the new government in Munich about their progress regarding Free Software, and we introduce our new Open Science Coordinator, Christian Busse. As usual, you can read about our diverse community activities.
