How #Amazon is a threat to democracy and aims to take over all of retail
Plex is no longer going to allow their paying customers to opt-out of having their viewing metadata collected and used by Plex (presumably for direct or indirect profit).
Remember when it was enough to pay a company for a piece of software without them pimping out your personal information for a little extra profit on the side?

Une bonne question à se poser avant les manifs de la rentrée :
Faut-il former les services de secours à soigner des blessures « de guerre » ou arrêter d’utiliser des armes à feu sur des civils susceptibles de mutiler et tuer, contrairement à ce que suppose leur « non-létalité » ?
Most of today’s #censorship circumvention #tools use the same fundamental approach: they encrypt the user’s traffic to make it look innocuous, and channel it to a #proxy server located outside the censored network. This leads to a fundamental problem: Once the censor discovers the proxy server, the proxy itself becomes just another site to block. If users can find the proxy servers, the censors can too.
In this race to find and use—or find and block—proxy servers, censoring governments enjoy natural, growing advantages over censored users. For example, they can examine all data flowing across their borders in search of disfavored activity. Strategies that rely on friendly servers are failing against increasingly sophisticated state-level censors who can see and control a country’s entire network.
#Refraction networking takes a different approach.
Stop the lies about San Francisco being progressive.
* Tech industry sexism and racism infecting and destroying politically progressive communities
* Govt corruption underbuilding low income housing and permitting the destruction of existing low income housing
* Progressive people, unionized workers, even teachers can no longer afford it, and have been displaced.
Its a feelgood neoliberal consumerist shithole, with only a thin veener of "ethical consumption" over the real inequality behind.
Message à tous les couche-tard !
Ne vous est-il jamais arrivé de vous lever tôt, de passer une journée de type zombie... pour finir la journée en pleine forme et vous coucher de nouveau tard.
Alors on nous fait la morale : tu ne fais pas d'efforts, tu n'est pas sérieux. (je connais ça...)
Et ben sachez que c'est biologique, ce n'est pas un manque de volonté ou de détermination.
(d'ailleurs pour les curieux, le dernier magazine de Cerveau & psycho traite du sujet)
It should be standard practice - not to trust a journalist who says you will be able to review his/her work before publishing.
It would avoid scenarios like this one.
"Poitras has also violated her promise ... [their would be] an opportunity to review the film in advance and request changes, and that they could decline to appear if they or their lawyers felt that the movie put them at risk."
