The government in #Portugal is making a tracking phone app mandatory by law. Among other features, it forces geographic tracking on at all times. Expect similar things in other members of the #EU. A #Linux phone was never so necessary.

I ordered a #Librem5 from @Puri_sm over three years ago, but am still waiting. There aren't many alternatives, but reality is imposing itself. Hope the #Librem5 makes it on time.

"Do not let GAFAM curate the web for you. Curate it yourself. Use RSS feeds."

Feel free to steal this. 😉

There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science

Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.

This is among the reasons I never post pictures of my son. I understand and accept risks to my own identity, but I don't own his online identity--I'm merely a steward of it until he's an adult. I hope at that point I can hand it off to him untarnished and unexploited.

Stoicism or Buddhism? Either way true...

♲ @TheAncientSage@twitter.com: Everything is fleeting. Why care?

Why become emotional about something which is temporary, which you'll soon forget?

Just sit back and observe the transience of everything. You'll see how you waste your energy on trifles.

Most things are just not worth fretting about.

> Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say. Nobody needs to justify why they 'need' a right. The burden of justification falls on the one seeking to infringe upon the right. You can't give away the rights of others because they're not useful to you. More simply, the majority cannot vote away the natural rights of the minority.
