‪You and your ad-server/tracking cronies killed “Do Not Track”. You made sure that opt-in wasn’t possible and made opt-out impossible. You cried when the EU introduced #GDPR and started geo-blocking EU users instead of accepting and respecting the law. ‬

US cloud platforms are not #GDPR compliant - that's becoming very clear. Is your organization already looking for a better solution?

There is both a risk and an opportunity in the current political sabre-rattling against "social media" in multiple countries. The #DataFarms will attempt to capture any new regulation and twist it into anti-competitive forms that disproportionately target smaller players, and even non-commercial ones like most #fediverse instances (eg #Article13). But if we can educate politicians enough, they might begin dismantling the datafarming revenue model that gives #TheStacks their dominance (eg #GDPR).

The Right to Be Forgotten?


The other day, I was denied access to the website of an American news outlet for “legal reasons” (see their explanation below). Seriously, people! Could we just shred the GDPR and pretend it never existed?

“We recognise you are attempting to access this website from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA) including the EU which enforces the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and therefore cannot grant you access at this time. For any issues, e-mail us at ourmail@ourserver.com or call us at 555-FUCK-GDPR.” #GDPR #ShoveIt #YouMustBeKidding #RightToInformation


 
I must admit, I never really understood why I should bother about protecting my personal data, why I should be worried about google knowing I recently looked for Spider-Man t-shirts, or where I live and work. So i looked up a few articles, and while I'm getting a better grasp, it still sounds a lot like the problem isn't that companies have my data, or that it is a danger for me, but that they are collecting and sharing it in an un-ethical way.
Since we're on the fediverse/federation I guess there are a lot of people who are more knowledgeable than me on the topic, I'd like to hear what you think about the topic?

The Copyright Protection Disaster


Articles 11 and 13 are obviously not about copyright protection. Is the “Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market” merely an approach to allow tax collection through the back door?

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:

I actually welcome websites geo blocking the EU based on their unwillingness to protect their users. When they don’t know nor care about all the trackers and stuff they force on their users, I don’t want to visit their site anyway. Thanks, #GDPR!

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.

Two articles on the Mardi Gras in New Orleans, LA

1. Nerdwallet: How to Celebrate Mardi Gras on a Budget:

This year, Mardi Gras falls on Tuesday, March 5. If you want to be in New Orleans for the height of the festivities, you’ll likely want to fly in on Friday, March 1.

New Orleans is fairly easy to navigate on foot. A three-day pass with the city’s Regional Transit Authority (RTA) only costs $9 and includes unlimited trips on RTA buses and streetcars.

New Orleans can be an expensive city to celebrate Mardi Gras, so why not try a different location? For a taste of history, try Mobile, Alabama, which is where the first Mardi Gras celebration took place in 1703. Or you could head to Pensacola, Florida, for its Grand Mardi Gras Parade, which features more than 6,000 marchers and typically draws crowds in the six figures.
