Debian is welcoming applicants for Outreachy and GSoC 2019


Posted to the Debian users list:

Debian is dedicated to increasing the diversity of contributors to the project and improving the inclusivity of the project. We strongly believe working towards these goals provides benefits both for people from backgrounds that are currently under-represented in free software, and for the wider movement, by increasing the range of skills, experiences and viewpoints contributing to it.

Seems the days of free social media doing what the hell it likes is over, about time too, thankfully I am not on either fb or instagram, want nothing to do with networks that aid hatred.

One of the reasons physical books, and physical music / video media is (or was) popular is once bought, you have it, if it is ina digital library it can be removed or you can lose it if your device fails despite having actually bought it, which in the case of digital content, you have just bought a license for it, and that can be removed at any time.

Not sure what (and the article fails to explain) what OTT means in this contact, (not Over The Top clearly).

Apparently it actually is "Over the Top", a somewhat obscure reference to streaming boxes or something.

Yeah, sill none the wiser as to the connection.



At what point does this PewDiePie become liable for actions taken in his name, ? in this case not directly clearly but if he was sued for millions or shut down due actions of followers it could send a message.

Millions of Facebook passwords exposed internally


I am guessing that Friendi.ca and the rest of the fediverse has a better policy on this. One advantage is one fediverse server only holds a small percentage of total accounts. So a data leak / breach will only affect those users.

Stories like this should help us reflect on what we do, how we do things.

Health apps pose 'unprecedented' privacy risks


Health apps pose 'unprecedented' privacy risks

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-47652611

I am not too sure why people such as Amazon would want data on Health, but even so a worrying trend seems to be emerging.

Thankfully the fediverse does not treat it's users privacy with this sort of total contempt.

From a coding beginner to running a successful Code Club


Nina was an absolute beginner to coding and had no experience of working with children, but now she runs a Code Club from the Raspberry Pi Foundation office in Cambridge twice a month, in partnership with the Cambridge Refugee Resettlement Campaign. Nina’s story is a great example of how anyone can set up and run […]

Great news, I may wait till this gets updated in Debian though.
