Στο παρελθόν είχαμε μιλήσει για τη συμφωνία που *επιτρέπει* στους παρόχους email, chat και messaging apps την αναζήτηση στα προσωπικά μηνύματα κάθε πολίτη (#chatcontrol).
Σήμερα, η Ευρωπαική Επιτροπή δημοσίευσε νομοσχέδιο για την *υποχρεωτική* εφαρμογή των #chatcontrol.
@hakmem he is building a social network of his own and rumors say they do use some mastodon code: https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2021/10/trumps-new-social-media-platform-found-using-mastodon-code/
Some other alt-right platforms also use mastodon (eg. gab), although many other instances have blocked federating with them.
@hakmem True. But I see people being puzzled by the initial step of having to choose a mastodon instance. I guess it's been a long time for most of them since they had to do the same for their email.
It's amazing to observe people ranting against #Mastodon's federated structure, while at the same time they keep using email.

Decentralization is not the goal. The goal is information and communication services that respect human agency.
Open source is not the goal, the goal is building a commons of software that is free to study, inspect, and improve.
I feel like, as implementors, as people who spend our lives in the digital crawlspaces focused on the details; its easy to lose sight of the why behind the how. I think important to periodically step back and refocus on why we are doing things the way we are doing. What is the desired world state?
#UkraineRussia war is expected to create a food deficit that would mostly affect the poorest countries.
Yet an 8% reduction in the use of cereals for animal feed just in the #EU would save enough wheat to make up for the expected deficit.
