Initiative to ban mass biometric surveillance in EU

European citizens campaign to prohibit biometric mass surveillance practices
reclaimyourface.eu/

This is one of the few posts I put publicly and I ask for a Boost!

If you are from EU or you know EU people, it could be interesting.
This is not an usual random web petition, this is an official ECI (European citizens initiative)

@dentangle @schmittlauch @dukeofpearldiving The GPL does not just say „any later version“ but also specifies that the license must keep the spirit. See Point 14 in gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0 — the GPL is the only license I know that does *not* require you to trust its managing authority. Not even the FSF has the authority to create a GPL 4.0 that breaks the spirit of the GPL.

As I rarely do 3D stuff to avoid too much suffering to my old rig, I have not modeled the bath tub, I've downloaded it from archibase. Then I have set the textures and lighting.

Have a good week Mastodon !

RFC on RMS 

I saw the open letter about RMS
I agree some points are bad, though I have to say that there's been a lot of cherrypicking.

Some points are written in a way suggesting he still considers them valid, even though we know he explicitly changed ideas over time years ago on some of them.

About pronouns, I personally support the use of "they" or the choice of the individual person if they prefer another one, but I don't see how Stallman making a neutral pronoun proposal would be transphobic.
His proposal doesn't prevent anyone to continue to use the pronoun each one of us prefers

Thoughts and comments, pros and cons?
Freely write 😊

@shoeberto It's the weirdest thing, I remember arguing with my dad when I was a teenager because I was wasting my life on facebook.

Now when I tell him I don't want him posting photos of me on Facebook he reacts like I've insulted a family member.
