A non-technical article about Bluetooth tracking everywhere:

nytimes.com/interactive/2019/0

– tracking relies on BT beacons and certain apps on your phone
– NYT recommends the Beacon Scanner app to detect beacons around you and using tracking-free apps from app stores like F-Droid

#HelloWorld! As active members of the open-source community, ProtonMail supports open source projects like Mastodon. Mastodon’s decentralized nature reminds us of the days when the Internet was free and not under the control of a few monopolist giants. Our followers can look forward to toots about service updates, new projects, and news on privacy.

Big props to @omgubuntu and @protonmail for putting Mastodon links on their website templates alongside their centralised social media links (see attachments) :blobcheer:

This is great for normalising the concept of decentralised social media 👍

Auf Betreiben von #FinTech und @GCHQ@twitter.com hat @ETSI_STANDARDS@twitter.com versucht, in die Transportverschlüsselung TLS 1.3 eine Hintertür einzubauen. Als das nicht gelang, machte #ETSI daraus einen eigenen Standard: #ETS. Das ist der #BBA19-Jury 1 #BigBrotherAward wert.

Mit der Beschneidung der Chrome-API für Werbeblocker nutzt Google seine quasi Monopolstellung auf dem Browser-Markt aus. Die Antwort kann nur sein: Weg von Chrome und weg von Google. Deren Produkte existieren nur, um die Nutzer zu melken.

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled is how JavaScript got 100x more complex from 2009 to 2019 and yet web apps look exactly the same, except that they’re often slower now.

Follow-up on tool that extracts GPG secret keys of Nitrokey Start tokens:

– obviously, the Nitrokey Start wasn't protected
– owners should update their firmware to release RTM.7 or above

Just saw an interesting post from a major cosmetics manufacturer:

"An audit of our social content and strategy demonstrated that on average, only 6% of our followers are serviced with our content in their newsfeed because we don’t pay to play. "

...they have millions of followers on Facebook etc, but almost no one sees their posts.

Their response is to try promoting their own websites instead of ad-based third parties'.

It does prove the usefulness of #federation that through all the #Matrix outage, my account was not affected at all. Most of the people I chat to are on other servers than the one affected.
