Folks, I’m seeing a lot of people recommend setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false to fix the Firefox extensions issue.
⚠️ DO NOT DO THIS! ⚠️
It disables signature checking on extensions which means that you open yourself up to malicious extensions if you install any new ones or if you have auto updates on.
Or go the officially recommended (but less private) route: https://mastodon.ar.al/@aral/102039553570119536
Here’s a bootleg recording* of my talk from Europacamp in Hamburg last week:
Shot on a mobile phone thanks to Mirjam Buettner’s tireless arms.
* The organisers of Europacamp thought only Yanis’s appearance and Lessig’s talk were worth having professionally recorded, not the other keynotes.

our CEO Todd Weaver: "You’re starting to question the moral values of #BigTech. You and your friends probably have a growing feeling of creepiness about the tech giants who have — like a poorly-acted villain — told you one thing, and given you another..." https://puri.sm/posts/how-to-avoid-the-frightful-5-big-tech-corporations/
During the past decade, the cloud also came, which was previously unimaginable. "We protected our data, we did not want to give it to anyone, and today we are glad we can drop the tons of rubbish into the cloud and we love to pay for it." Communications have also changed, everything is influencing, disinforming, manipulating. "Our government is communicating with us through the US service called Twitter, which was unimaginable."
It is certain that the world has changed dramatically over the past ten years. "What can not be found on Google is not on the Internet," Radoslav Bodó said. "I've been looking for a pajamas with a cap, for example, and I've found the stores in my neighborhood. What was not there, it does not exist for me." The change was also made in e-government, we have a qualified signature, data boxes, Czech Point and other conveniences. "It's a huge shift."

"I use Linux because I believe it represents the last bastion of user-friendly and user-centric computing on this Earth, and I want to be a part of improving it and helping it to grow.

The four eras of digital computing:
① Mainframe (centralised)
② Personal Computing (PC 1.0; decentralised)
③ Web/Cloud (Mainframe 2.0; centralised)
④ Peer Computing (PC 2.0; decentralised)
The PC 2.0 era is what some of us are working to usher in.
