I'm amazed, the more I get into the GDPR, the more amazed I am about it. This is a great law which really has some great thoughts that were put into it.
Given that it's implemented as it's designed, this really brings privacy and security into the focus of every aspect of a companies workflow.
While it doesn't mean, that it'll make companies privacy focused, it forces them to think about it and take it into consideration when selecting partners, products and services. 👍🏻
I guess when it comes to the Fediverse it would be a good idea to reassemble the separation of powers that we know from states. Having some people starting to make the rules and maybe taking care of the hardware while having other people that enforce the rules and a 3rd group of people who are there to figure out problem that came up between rule executors and users.
Main problem: You need at least 3 people to get those things started and they shouldn't be the best friends in first place.
Tilix (the tiling gtk3 terminal emulator) is looking for a new maintainer
Hmmm... funny thing that.

Just a thought on Cloudflare WRAP (their VPN offer):
You definitely put yourself in big danger by using it. Cloudflare has an own CA that is able to issue certificates for ANY website. Means when they want to MITM you while using WRAP you won't even see a certificate warning.
(There are some ways to mitigate that like public key pinning, but the majority of HTTPS pages won't)
So probably use something else.
For those who wonder why they were not open source right now: I was in a hurry when switching from octo.sh to my own GitLab and that made some details less important, now I update the projects by including CI, add an image, a nice description, sometimes fix naming and repository path, etc. In order to have a nice impression on it :)
So not much overly new, but maybe still worth a look :)
By the way, if you wonder what I do when I'm not working for companies or on CodiMD or consulting in infrastructure projects: I work on free software and since I had to switch away from Octo.sh to my own GitLab I decided to slowly open source them again.
Current status: Half of the projects are open source again, feel free to check them out:

Listen, I'm not a fan of the Spanish Inquisition OR predatory multi-level marketing schemes...
Looks like Tilix is searching for a new maintainer in a long term perspective:
I use this terminal editor every day and I consider it as doing exactly what I want it to do, but it would be great to see new development going on!
I don't want to know how many browsers do not verify #XPI signatures anymore... Like zombies, walking around
If you disabled xpinstall.signatures.required make sure you reenable it now!
