Linux touchpad like a Macbook: progress and a call for help!

Define the goal:

To create a touchpad solution for Linux that serves as many users as possible, we want to be maximally objective in describing what we aim to deliver.

My first idea to be objective was to quantify how the cursor worked on OS X, and create a suite of tests we’d use to guide development. That turned out to be a misadventure, for circumstantial reasons.

My second idea is my current preferred plan forward:

1) to fork libinput (overview doc, contributor docs, source), and

2) find up to three developers dedicated to making a measurably better driver.

Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?


My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.

[:]




[:]

I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.

I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.

A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:

How can Federation users post more safely?


You know how it goes. We find a great story online and we want to share it with our supporters or feature it in our feed with appropriate hashtags for maximum reach.

But do we check the website featuring the story for privacy before we post?

When we embed a link by selecting the OEmbed box (often ticked by default) this displays an image or video on our post from the website we’ve featured.




They may look cool, but these images can contain beacons or other trackers. Embedded trackers also load into the browsers of any user who scrolls down the public feeds.

Hey there social media hosting people and developers working on any of the #Fediverse systems!

Is there anyone of you at the Chaos Communication Congress in Leipzig this year right after Christmas? Is there anyone interested to have a meeting there?

Just some exchange, we would need some people to moderate the event, but basically some meetup to exchange information and get to know other players in the field.
"Someone" could then register a "talk" or "meetup" for the upcoming congress, I'd say a duration of about 1.5 to 2 hours and maybe 60+ people can be expected, assuming there is many #webmasters or #developers among the visitors at the #35C3.

Any #devs and #webmaster of the following systems, or any that I might have missed that are using #ActivityPup and can communicate with the others, please comment here if you like the idea!

Ask HN: Developers aged 50, how have you gotten around age discrimination?


What is your specialty/tech stack? How have you gotten around age discrimination? How do you suss out whether a company is right for you?

(I'm in my late twenties but I'm very curious to hear all your experiences.)

1. Click on Chrome’s menu and select the cog symbol – SETTINGS
2. Click the SHOW ADVANCED SETTINGS link at the bottom. Don’t be afraid of the ‘advanced’ implication, this has been worded to scare off timid sheep from reclaiming their privacy.
3. Click the CONTENT SETTINGS button under PRIVACY. While we’re here, consider unchecking the boxes urging us to use web services to ‘resolve navigational errors’ or ‘prediction services’ to auto complete our searches. This is just more telemetry.

Please don't change to round profile pictures!


Farcebook and other social sites are forcing users to use round profile pix for some reason. Probably due to the massive popularity of cameras and phones that take round photos. ( that was sarcasm! )

Please, for the love of all that remains good in the sick, twisted world of social networking, DON'T do this to Diaspora!

Update auf Diaspora* 0.7.9.0 erfolgreich abgeschlossen - update to diaspora* 0.7.9.0 successfull.

Notable Changes

  • The /public stream should be much faster now if you are using PostgreSQL. This is just the first step of many to come to improve the performance of all streams and tag pages.
  • The recent change to support full-resolution photos introduced issues with the thumbnails. This issue has been addressed.
  • The mobile-optimized interface now supports ignoring users.
