The new PACT Act still creates a legal regime that rewards censorship at internet users’ expense. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2021/03/even-changes-revised-pact-act-will-lead-more-online-censorship
This is such a shameless piece of self-serving bullshit, it should be comic. But it's not. It's terrifying. It's exactly the kind of "solution" that low-information lawmakers love - something that lets them "get tough on a bad actor" without risking campaign contributions.
Don't be bamboozled. Please. The answer to Facebook will not come from Facebook. You can't fix something from the inside that shouldn't exist in the first place.
Zuck's proposal to fix the problem of Facebook, then, is "We should fix Facebook by not changing Facebook at all, and making it illegal to make a service that interoperates with Facebook, starving it of the monopoly rents it uses to evade real regulation."
The rise in anti-Asian hate crimes and discrimination is awful. I donated to anti-racist organizations. I have retweeted. Some of my Asian friends have posted they appreciate it, but have had enough of non-Asian people checking in on them. I don’t know how to help. #StopAsianHate

In case you’re wondering if Google or Facebook, etc., will keep you secure, yes, they will try. In the same way a farmer tries to keep their sheep secure from everything else but their own knife.
Security does not imply safety.
Majority of the European Parliament welcomes the Commission's intention to oblige e-mail, messaging and chat providers to search all private messages for allegedly illegal material and report to the police (#chatcontrol) by 580:76:37.
“Wikipedia hosts 1.7 million biographies. Not even 20 % of those are about women. If Wikipedia wants to become the sum of human knowledge, this needs to change. With such a large gender gap, we are far from reaching the goal. International Women’s Day is an important moment to remind ourselves of the gender gap for women and all underrepresented groups and to renew our efforts to close it.”
Is there an equivalent of GCP Cloud Run from #OpenStack public cloud providers?
