The Intercept is looking for #tech whistleblowers:

"In partnership with European news organizations, we are soliciting information on the mishandling of digital personal information."

cybertechaccord.org/accord/

I mean, yay, I guess, except:

1) it's just papering over fundamental problems with how the web is currently organized, likw hyper-centralization

2) no verbiage on what these companies will do in the event of the accord clashing with legal or fiduciary duties. Civil disobedience? Overriding boardroom decisions? Very unlikely

3) this space intentionally left blank

Egypt too?

The web has been thoroughly balkanized, and I'm starting to feel like I need a map of it.

I'm conflicted about , etc. On the one hand, the law is batshit.

On the other hand, it makes big centralized money-making platforms untenable.

The #EuropeanParliament is voting on 20th June on changes to the #CopyrightDirective.

#Article13 would mean automated content filters (like YouTube uses) on all sites. Large corporations would be able to censor and spy on all internet content, because they would be running the filters on behalf of smaller sites:

Call/email your MEP *today* to say no to Article 13, especially if they're on this list of committee members:

on my way to work one day I heard someone shout 'FAGGOT' at me.
I turn around & its a person around 15/17 years old, standing across the road.

without much thought I said 'oh yeah? well at least I don't have java installed on my computer...'

the person didn't know what to say & walked off in utter confusion. I continued on to open up the shop, which was only a few steps from where this happened - laughing for the rest of the day. it was also sunny, so double bonus.
