“Don‘t use ND” might be the Open Cultural Licenses equivalent to “Don‘t roll your own crypto”

@Korallenherz naja, ernst nehmen kann ich die Gestalten da beim besten Willen nicht, und geschrumpft sind sie auch sehr stark.
Politisch relevant sind sie leider aber dennoch immer noch und bleiben gefährlich.

@kaniini @kaniini Wait a sec, JSON-LD has only been standardised from 2011 on, not talking about AS even. Prism was revealed in 2013, but active at least since 2009.

Seeing user data exports being formatted in AS can be seen as an indication for vendors already having that implemented anyways for handing it to the gov, but that's no proof. An alternative explanation is that GDPR demands machine-readable exports. Devs could've just searched for "social posts serialization", find AS and implement

@kaniini So basically the data normally only available to centralised platform operators (eg :birdsite:) is now out in the open and trivially available for many. No big difference for NSA in particular (Prism) but still big oof.

One big challenge in protocol design is that all this can also be read as "sign all the things for integrity" if you're not aware of the privacy implications.

@kaniini So you say it's more a mindset and conceptual issue that'll inevitably mess everything up, not the concrete current status quo (except for LD-sigs of course)?

@kaniini The only thing coming to my mind is that due to all of the linking and fetching of sub-parts/ contexts the entity behind that dereferencable URI can know which other instances received a message containing that context.

@kaniini Btw, I still need to read your blog post on JSON-LD. Does that go into details about "JSON-LD => metadata leakage"?

@kaniini @foxhkron You shouldn't blame the person taking that decision to hard, because ActivityPub claimed to be a complete specification. So this non-optimal adoption was preceded by a non-optimal standardisation.

hello website owner

fun fact

the GDPR applies to EU citizens, not EU residents

you can't violate the GDPR just because a user's IP address isn't in the EU

@kaniini In the e-mail notifications about GitHub issues you are still listed with your dead name.

Gonna take the whole "Don't scab on prime day" moment to promote one of my favourite alternatives to an amazon product.

The Movie Database is a free community-run alternative to IMDB, unlike amazon's shitty website, TMDB isn't full to bursting with ads, trackers and sluggish JavaScript, and provides an excellent platform for folk to catalogue information about their favorite films without being marketed to.

Please support it, not just on prime day, but any time you need info on a film. Keep information free.

@kaniini “Tusky violates the GPLv3 because my interpretation of it is more valid than RMS's” is possibly the most nuclear fossbro bullshit take in existence

auch wenn ich ja nicht immer mit den leuten von belltower einer meinung bin, hier haben sie mal einen wirklich guten text zusammengeschrieben. es geht um den berliner jugendwiderstand und den armseligen eiertanz, den verschiedene linke gruppen aus berlin (und anderswo) aufführen um sich mit antisemitischen schlägern und sexisten zu solidarisieren. belltower.news/kommentar-linke
