So a work colleague sent out an invite over Google Calendar to a videoconference hosted on our company Jitsi server yesterday, and because Google is "smart" they decided to add prominent links to *its own service* to the invite...as in more prominent than the actual link to our Jitsi server that we were using. It did so without asking permission or prior warning.
After the customer sat in an empty Google meeting for 10 minutes we phoned directly to direct him to the proper meeting...
Les gens qui n'ont "rien à cacher", ils se promènent tout nu dans la rue ?
Ils envoient leurs courriers officiels mentionnant leurs revenus, leur patrimoine, leur situation de famille, leur données médicales, etc, sans enveloppe ?
Ils ne mettent pas de rideaux à leurs fenêtres ?
Ils dorment à l’hôtel avec la porte ouverte ?
Moi, j'ai des trucs à cacher. Et je le revendique.
Et au gouvernement, ils n'ont rien à cacher peut-être ?? Comptes en Suisse et mandats bidons, ha ha ha...
Friendly reminder to send to the non-believers, in a simple to understand fashion
You can't opt-out of Google tracking your phone - Sen. Josh Hawley owns Google - PeerTube on Mastodon.host https://peertube.mastodon.host/videos/watch/f087a756-8500-4246-b863-57d00af45486
Sounds like the UK and US agreed on a WhatsApp backdoor:
The first release candidate of #Mastodon 3.0.0 is out for testing:
Finished first day of working in Montreal, preparing for another @snapcraftio Summit. We have invited ~40 guests to work together on making Linux application delivery better. We also have IoT and robotics experts coming too. Going to be a busy week ahead.
Time to announce this plan: I am working on a redesign of the joinmastodon.org server picker. I am also planning to switch out the data source from instances.social to my own API. The main reason for this is the addition of a new guarantee that I would be able to give when linking to servers from joinmastodon.org: That those servers would meet certain standards and enforce some basic rules of conduct.
Below is a screenshot with old, uncurated data as placeholder.
If you're on Mastodon and know the web address of someone on the Fediverse, you can use this to follow them.
1. Copy their profile's web address into the Mastodon search box (see screenshots).
2. Click search, this should bring up a link to the profile and a follow button next to it.
3. Click follow!
This works with many kinds of Fediverse addresses including PixelFed, PeerTube and others. Try it!
You can also use this technique with web addresses of individual posts.
