I have just made my first contribution to Open Street Map. It needs a lot of love for it to be on par with Google Maps. Something that's not impossible if we make an effort together!

WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, just shut down the massive channel used by Spain's independent leftist political party Podemos.

And it did this just days before the general election

This is actual, extreme election meddling by a foreign corporation

"Amazon-Mitarbeiter in Boston, [...] hören sich jeden Tag Tausende aufgezeichnete Gespräche von Echo-Nutzern an und schreiben diese ab. Ihr Auftrag ist es, die virtuelle Assistentin Alexa zu verbessern, etwa durch eine passende Verschlagwortung für das weitere Training der Spracherkennung. Sie hören dabei zwangsläufig aber auch private Konversationen mit - oder wenn jemand um Hilfe ruft"

Wer sich eine Wanze in die Wohnung stellt sollte nichts anderes erwarten.

Have you been thinking about making an app for the Librem 5 but didn't know where to start?

I wrote a tutorial blog post for getting started with designing apps for GNOME mobile (and desktop too).

@LibertyPaulM FOSS fundamentalist here. I don't want Mozilla to block this or that. I can do that myself. What I do want them to do is to stop tracking Firefox users with telemetry by default and without informed consent. Most Firefox users are entirely unaware that their behavior data is being sent back to the mothership.

I don't use Chrome and don't advise it. There are variants of Firefox which are better and don't include the spying by default.

Security and privacy isn't a dichotomy. You can have both.

Why do I have to use same Instant-Messenger everyone else uses? Why can't it be like Email? 😓

Why is it so hard to implement a Google Play Service alternative that is free and open-source?

I really admire the confidence with which my cat shows his b-hole to everybody at close range.

I really wish I had that type of hubris.

All 2.7 million recorded calls to the medical advice phone number 1177 (operated by the municipalities in Sweden) answered by the subcontractor Medicall since 2013 were found to be available to everyone on an unprotected web server.
That's 170000 hours of sensitive phone calls with symptoms, etc.

~=8 Character Passwords Are Dead=~

New benchmark from the Hashcat Team shows a 2080Ti GPU passing 100 Billion password guesses per second (NTLM hash).

This means that the entire keyspace, or every possible combination of:
- Upper
- Lower
- Number
- Symbol

...of an 8 character password can be guessed in:

~2.5 hours

(8x 2080Ti GPUs against NTLM Windows hash)
