Wollte hier endlich mal eine Geschichte raushauen, die ich unter Mitwirkung des SWR recherchiert habe, die aber am Ende nie veröffentlicht wurde.

Es geht um "Deutschlands führenden Vokabeltrainer", Phase6, den über eine Million Personen nutzen, darunter viele Kinder.

Vermutlich über eine Agentur hatte man für Retargeting Pubmatic und Mathtag in die Website eingebunden, die dann die Cookies der Kinder zur Versteigerung von Anzeigen mit 20-30 anderen Anbieter austauschten (Cookie-Matching).

Autofocus support can't get soon enough - turns out that trying to take a focused macro shot with manual focus controlled by typing values into the terminal is kinda cumbersome 😂

...but spring is here, as seen by the camera!

Got #Purism's call echo cancellation fixes working on #postmarketOS. No echoes so far! Yay!

Ok, I won't "educate" people that write "Posh" when talking about "Phosh" anymore. It's now officially hopeless:

If flatpaks ask for location service access can now handle that as a agent (which became useful after fixing that for recent kernels using cgroupv2 (gitlab.freedesktop.org/geoclue):

#Plasma Mobile + #KDE Connect on the #PinePhone make for a rather awesome mainline #Linux powered remote control for your also #Linux powered media center. No #Google or #Apple involved here and yet this level of integration is what I hear the proponents of Apple's walled garden approach citing as the benefit.

Of course free software can do it all without locking you in. If that's not the ultimate expression of confidence, the fact that you can walk away anytime, I don't know what is.

What was taken from #FreeSoftware has been returned to it: after denying a refund for a pre-installed Windows, Lenovo had to pay 20.000 Euros to our volunteer and supporter Luca Bonissi.

While it has been fun and educational working inside so many organizations over the past 20 years, today is what I hope is my last day as an employee.

I am now doing OSS work and security/privacy consulting full time.

If you want my eyes on a project, let me know!

There's several reasons I like writing the documentation at adrian.geek.nz/docs !

I like reading over that code to exercise my software freedom to audit the code for malfeatures, though I don't trust myself to recognize vulnerabilities.

I want to make sure I comprehend what I'm reading, writing it down helps.

I like learning from how established projects do things, why computers are the way they are from the silicon on up.

And I think you might benefit from that understanding too!

Selbst nach den kritischsten Schätzungen (nämlich von #Microsoft) hat #LiMux die Landeshauptstadt #München in 10 Jahren 61 Millionen Euro gekostet - also 6,1 Millionen pro Jahr (München selbst spricht von 23 Millionen und einer Ersparnis von 25% gegenüber Microsoft). Laut ZDnet kostet die Rückmigration zu Windows 86,1 Millionen Euro in 6 Jahren - also 14,35 Millionen Euro pro Jahr.
