Important call for experimentation from @democracypolicy:

Alternative Voting Methods | Democracy Policy Network - democracypolicy.network/agenda

I'm working for a big tech company in California. Yesterday all employees received an email from our security guys.

We have to deactivate all personal assistant gadgets (like Alexa) during worktime in the homeoffice.

They have evidence that these gadgets are recording audio from conference calls.

Nothing new to me but notable that I've got this order.

"Own a Newspaper for $1 per Month." An interesting story about a growing experiment in cooperative local journalism.

It would be great to get all proprietary #software out of schools and universities.

I love the #replyall podcast, but... FUCK the latest 171 episode.

Paraphrasing: "I hate that Twitter can decide who gets banned, I wish people made different social platforms where there is no central power like that".

Yes, I live in a fediverse bubble. But surely, with just a tiny bit of research, they could have found the fediverse, right? At least, Mastodon?

Now they leave it hanging as all other article: "Twitter sucks, but what can we do? No good alternatives"
