Hey Europeans, there's a European citizens initiative going round right now for universal/unconditional basic income.

The deadline has just been extended to the start of May.

Be cool if you signed it!

@lfdi Um das Ganze nochmal klarer zu machen: Die Möglichkeit falscher Angaben führt bei der Luca-App zur Beweisumkehr. Denn die Luca-App wird hier ja quasi als Beweis für meine Anwesenheit ins Feld geführt. Dem gegenüber stehen die Papierlisten. Bei den Papierlisten kann ich den Beweis über die Handschrift fordern.

Bei der Luca-App muss ich beweisen, dass ich nicht da war, z.B. durch einen Zeugen.

Es ist also keineswegs unproblematisch.

@lfdi ich höre gerade euren Podcast zur Luca App (Episode 11) und ich muss sagen, zu behaupten dass die Möglichkeit falsche Daten anzugeben, ja quasi ein Feature sei, ist schon etwas frech. Die Luca App behauptet ja, dass sie zumindest die Telefonnummer verifiziert. Folglich kann jemand unter meinem Namen mit meiner Telefonnummer einchecken und dann wird gegen mich angeführt, dass die App ja meine Telefonnummer verifiziert hat. Artikel 5 1d DSGVO können wir natürlich auch ignorieren.

Related: if you want to test if the detection works, you can use the following command in (Fedora) Linux with :

`chromium-browser "--user-data-dir=$(mktemp -d)" --enable-blink-features=InterestCohortAPI --enable-features="FederatedLearningOfCohorts:update_interval/10s/minimum_history_domain_size_required/1,FlocIdSortingLshBasedComputation,InterestCohortFeaturePolicy"

(It'll enable the feature in a temporary profile that is used until you terminate the command)

Today we're kicking off the #GNU Assembly!

This is a new umbrella for GNU people seeking transparent decision-making and built around consensus. It's the result of a decade of struggle to make #GNU inclusive, transparent, and community-driven.

#GNU contributors: consider joining!

#FreeSoftware activists: help us spread the word!

I just realised that implicitly I built a FLOC tester :D

Want to check if your browser implements FLOC? Just go to and if a banner shows up warning you about FLOC, your browser is affected. Amazing!

While a lot of people decided to set a header to opt-out from FLOC tracking for their users, I decided to embrace it and let people make up their own mind.

For those interested in the banner, here are the implementation details:

It's kept simple and efficient. It'll only show up, when your browser implements the API. Enjoy!

So after thinking a lot about FLOC and how it impacts and changes the advertisement environment, I have more questions than answers.

And at least from my current understanding, it becomes worse for organisations that want to advertise, which might includes your government trying to educate citizens about things, while not really making things much better for individual privacy, due to the ability to correlate cohort IDs to identify users.

Mhm ._.

@Stoori Hello, there is some discussion about how realistic or needed that permission policy is, as you can see here and

Still, the Pull Request was merged and it should be included on the next Mastodon update.

I could manually implement it on Nginx but since that will be changed soon, I would suggest to wait until the next Mastodon update.

Now, if you want me to add it now using Nginx, let me know.

By the way, it has been a while since I read the article, but revisited it today:

After reading the article I set the minimum TTL on my own DNS server (DoH,DoT) at to 120 seconds. It really helps a lot.

So if you operate one yourself, go for it, minimum TTLs can not just speed up the whole thing, but also safe a bunch of traffic.
