So impressed with the work @johan Thelin has done with FOSS North this year despite all the challenges that have come. The schedule for the upcoming talk is pretty amazing and relevant. lnkd.in/gAgzqMd
So grateful for all of Johan's work to keep what I humbly feel is the best independent, FOSS conference in Scandinavia.

More than 2,000 law enforcement agencies across every state now have access to technology that allows them to extract data from confiscated phones.

A new report by @TeamUpturn details the dangerous growth of these tools: upturn.org/reports/2020/mass-e

Microsoft got in antitrust trouble for bundling IE for free w/ Windows to compete with Netscape.

Now imagine Microsoft controlled whether Netscape could be installed or updated on Windows, and blocked them, and you are closer to the current situation with phones.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️

PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE

And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.
