"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."
- Noam Chomsky

‘Reclaiming privacy: a feminist manifesto’
“whose privacy are we fighting for when we say we defend the right to privacy? Talking about privacy in the abstract – as if we all benefit from the same rights, as if we are all equal – means taking the risk of defending the rights of only the most privileged ones in society – with privilege coming in different forms from having a voice to be heard to socio-economic status.”

Yes, everybody opposed to the desastrous #CopyrightDirective go call MEP's for #pledge2019 - conversations are mostly pleasant, at times even fun and quite revealing. https://twitter.com/epicenter_works/status/1103974820092493824
It takes time, efforts, patience, mistakes, humility, self-questioning (and maybe some courage?) to try to become *every*day* a better ally to #feminism and women's rights.
A lot of introspection and privilege-checking to understand the deep roots of systemic oppression, colonialism, capitalism, etc.
A necessary effort for everyone to try to not be part of the problem anymore.
Thanks to all who helped and help me everyday on that path! <3

This is a public service announcement.
If your job uses Slack, please remember that the administrators that have been configured can view any channel and download all files and all information published, including channels that are "private" or between 2 individuals.
Your discussions are not secure and can be snooped upon, even private conversations.
In other words: there is no privacy on Slack. Period.
This is the end of this public service

Teaching digital security to your friends and neighbors can leave you with scant time to keep up with the latest security news. Luckily, EFF curates a list of blog posts and resources for the security-minded. https://sec.eff.org/blog
PSA for schools: Google is not your friend. Google does not want to help you learn. Google collects data on your students and they have no option to opt-out. You sign contracts on their behalf that sign their data away to massive companies who have no accountability. Attending public school is not a choice, and you should not force students to use spyware without their explicit consent. You should not base entire classes on proprietary spyware.
