BBC Documentaries podcast this one about India and porn. The part of rape videos spreading and WhatsApp, heartbreaking.

Beyond the tech, the encryption, the source code, how do we deal with the shitposting or the blatant lies on memes? Crap is often found on groups on some networks. What to do?

This morning I found a site with 231 trackers. Feel like I should sadly shout BINGO or something.

I think that we can say that WhatsApp groups are a magnet for shitposting. We can categorize those memes as that.

So far happy without WhatsApp, but you'll still need a plan B just in case, as it is ubiquitous.

Even that of course people need cars, within big cities more and more they have an antisocial effect. I wish there would be some kind congestion charge in Dublin.

@aral @icaria36 @gvenk till how to say, two days ago Apple didn't allowed you to delete your account (trying for a few years). Now ok.

For a company that "apparently" doesn't care about your data was a bit of a contradiction. And regarding the propietary model, planned obsolescence, unreparaibility and uncompatibility, it's also not good.

But I understand the reasons for picking this poison in some cases. Particularily Android is increasingly toxic and propietary.

Well, lately I'm starting to disable WiFi, but I guess, that Bluetooth should only be on when needed. Specially should be disabled outside home/work

Facebook suggested that I friend a person that I had met in a parking lot - reddit.com/r/privacy/comments/

Vivimos tiempos locos donde fascistas con símbolos fascistas llaman fascistas a quienes les combaten.

@izaro @oriol me pase a ver el twitter de Glenn Greewald, que en la foto sale con su marido y sus hijos. No te puedes hacer idea de la de amenazas de homófobos el día que gano Bolsonaro. Yo entiendo a los que se quieren ir. Y tengo amigos que incluso se lo piden a sus familiares. Se van a ir unos cuantos.

@izaro hay gente verdareamente destrozada... pero un montón que piensan que va a ser un cambio positivo para Brasil. En Irlanda en la votación ganó Haddad pero por poco. Es trágico.

La democracia parece estar en crisis en varias partes del mundo.

Y sin importar la corriente ideológica, los síntomas se repiten 😓

About the man arrested regarding the bombs sent to politicians and some other people.

It comments by itself:

People should have the choice of blocking messages that have been resent more than x times, lets say 2. To avoid all the crap is going on some networks, specially WhatsApp (if you still keep it)

Hate speech...

Denmark is the first country to require businesses to encrypt emails containing sensitive personal information end-to-end, starting January 1, 2019. 👏👏👏

Ya nos habían advertido de esto:

"Estamos construyendo una distopia para que la gente le de click a los anuncios."

Youtube favorece el extremismo porque es lo que más clicks genera; es decir, la IA de youtube aprendió a utilizar la curiosidad morbosa de los humanos y explotarla a su favor. Es como si skynet hubiera aprendido psicología de masas.

My work email is on the Apollo breach. Funny thing is that I was not aware of this site or why they had my data...
