: in , file access rights are defined by numbers:
4: read
2: write
1: execute

So if i want to give rights for read only, i use 4. For read and execute, 5 and for full access, 7. Of course any other combination is possible.

But why 4, 2 and 1 ? Why not ...123 ? Simply because by summing any combination of 1,2 and 4 without repetition, you always get a different number. So all cases are perfectly covered and i find it beautiful.

Sixty years ago today, French police under the command of a former Nazi collaborator massacred Algerian demonstrators in Paris. For decades, the French authorities concealed the evidence of one of the worst atrocities in postwar Europe.

A random stranger just handed me a nice and big umbrella.

I had an umbrella in my backpack and just hadn't bothered because the rain was so light, but he was too insistent and I was too shocked to be able to reject it before he moved on under his friend's umbrella.

I will try to pass the umbrella forward.

Hello Fediverse! Has anyone ever heard of or used FedWiki / the #Federated #Wiki? fed.wiki.org/view/welcome-visi

What do you think of it?

I'm having trouble wrapping my head around it, the documentation is not great, but it was started by Ward Cunningham... worth a look?

Un CD sur deux, désormais, doit être remastérisé pour une écoute décente. C'est fatigant.

Previous tweet I made about Signal chat has a bunch of replies inquiring about what cultural change is needed for people to be critical about surveillance.

I always felt this is was the wrong way to got about the question. Surveillance is just one dimension of the problem; the actual problem is the denial software freedom. If you commit to the Free software movement, which has been around for decades, everything else will follow.

@thenewoil I hope you address the mistakes of this article in the next surveillance report as @nattukaran has shown

Je trouve ce billet de @LaQuadrature sur la place que peut avoir (et surtout ne pas avoir) le citoyen dans la ville connectée assez intéressante. Si vous n'êtes pas familiers des articles de la Quadrature sur la surveillance dans les Smart Cities, je ne peux que vous recommander de les lire, ils sont toujours très documentés, celui-ci comme les autres.

If you do not speak to the worker, there will be no communism
If you do not speak to Indigenous, we can have no Decolonization
If you do not speak to those that were fed through the school to prison pipeline. We can have no Prison Abolition.
If you do not speak to the oppressed, there will be no Revolution.
It takes a million voices to topple a mountain. And if you gatekeep them behind words that they don't know. Then you are only speaking for yourself.

So that's why I write poems of Revolution
