"German Police under fire for misuse of COVID app" 🔥

In Germany, #privacy is taken very seriously 👏

However, this is a new proof that what we need is "privacy by design", not "privacy as a promise"... 💡

Remembering Aaron Swartz, who died on this day, a victim of the copyright system walledculture.org/remembering-

By @glynmoody

Aaron's face gets thrown around the internet to prop up campaigns and etc, but it's important to remember that Aaron was an activist for digital rights, and was bullied into suicide by a system that wanted to punish him for his activism. He was also a human being with friends and family who loved him dearly.

Looks like a documentary I was a part of six/seven years ago—Information: what are they looking at?—was shown at this year’s CCC. It’s good to see, knowing how much work Theresia put into making it happen with next to no funding.

⚠️ Spoiler alert ⚠️
There's a pretty big plot-hole in the mainstream make-use-dispose storyline: All of our "old" tech doesn't simply go away... there is no such place as "away". So we end up with a planet that has more phones than people 🤯
But it's not too late for #change 🌱

Part 1 of "Extended Polymerization" - Day 14 was fast, but as expected part 2 was harder. I had not enough energy so I did look around and found inspiration in counting just singles and pairs in each iteration. Anyway, I learn something new today ;-)

This legitimately looks like a really good product! I built a house with my dad about 20 years ago out of hay bales. And while sounding like a cool idea, it's way more fiddley than you would expect. These look like the same idea, but thinner, lighter, and easier.

I was still thinking about the day8 during the day. Somehow I did understand what to do 🙂

I did find idea to map some numbers but with some was difficult. So I look around. @Sotolf thanks for inspiration so I was able to continue. Finally I was able to get output for sample. BUT for input my program failed. It could not find 3 because 9 was not correct, wait 9 is quite easy and sample did work. Anyway, I did identify problem and now I have got two stars 🥱 🧶

I give up part 2 of day 8 of

Maybe it's because my native language is not English and the description is difficult for me.
Of course, part 1 was easy.

I bought the operating system and I probably paid a little because it will show me advertising, the option to pay to make it ad-free is not there. When activating it, it needs to select whether it can track my activity because of this. I suspect it probably doesn't care how I reply.

I want to increase my knowledge of python so doing each day of in python. Today most difficult was to find out how to do for loop with reverse order of range numbers.

anyway, Day 5 - "Hydrothermal Venture" - Advent of Code 2021 is done :ablobspin:
