At the recent LibreOffice Conference 2019 in Almeria, Spain, community members gave presentations on many topics: migrations to LibreOffice, building a community, and regional events. We've uploaded 10 more videos: https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2019/10/07/10-more-videos-from-the-libreoffice-conference-2019/

Facebook encryption: Should governments be given keys to access our messages?


Facebook encryption: Should governments be given keys to access our messages?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-49933483

So looking at some of the questions and answers on here, there seems to be little evidence to what the government seem to be claiming.

Is there evidence encryption has hampered police enquiries?

When the BBC asked the Home Office to provide examples, it could not do so.

I wonder their argument is based on the same sort of evidence that Saddam Hussain had Weapons of Mass destruction, which turned out not to be the case.

Interesting, I wonder what the human race would do with it, find another planet to colonise, drain all resources like we are doing on earth.

If Alien races know earth / human history they would probably blast any human spaceships in to oblivion as they would know what 'we come in peace really means'.


While people are free to air views what happens in the case of say anti-vaccination posts but fake news could also be used to spread false information which confuses people from what is actually happening.

Of course freedom of thought and freedom of speech are human rights which absolutely need to be defended... but it's not an easy or straightforward thing in practice.



Facebook encryption threatens public safety, says minister

So facebook wants to encrypt messages, Given the recent post that the presidential candiate Elizabeth Warren wants to break up facebook et al, and this resulted in Mark Zukerburg saying he would sue to US government, so after tis they decide that messages are going to be encrypted.

Seemsk like no coincidence then, plus itcomes after thus recent EU Ruling

Facebook 'can be ordered to remove content worldwide'

I dont think its the advisers - ministers these days think they dont need experts, and if they do they choose the ones that give them the answers they want.

Well, yeah, that too, or they listen to those who have the money to make their voices heard.

I am sure I read somewhere the term expert is :

Ex - Past it, Spert = Drip under pressure, trying to write things in a phonetic way there.

You only have to listen to interviews with some MPs and they seem to give anything but a simple and concise answer to a question, most of which just require yes or no.

Ex - spurt may come from a bloke called Blaster Bates who used to do after dinner talks about his demolition work. Very funny at the time - he had a couple of vinyl albums that might be on you-tube.

Peer Tube
A decentralized video hosting network, based on free/libre software

Peer tube is another service on the Fediverse. That allows you to upload video and share this with other. The difference is there are no adverts and fewer limitations on what you can upload. You still need to stay within the law though. Having used this I found it pretty straight forward and it transcoded my video in a few hours. As stated above this is all based on Free / Libre software.

Avoid #Vivaldi browser not just because it is #proprietarysoftware but because it apparently takes money from #microsoft to help Microsoft (and the NSA, obviously) spy on users. It sold out in a big and unethical way. Avoid.

This probably raises safeguarding issues too. Privacy, data, rights, etc
