Wir haben auch den offenen Brief "Das universelle Recht, jede Software auf jedem Gerät zu installieren" des #fsfe unterzeichnet, um die Idee zu unterstützen, #Geräte von #unsicherer oder #privatsphärenfeindlicher Software zu befreien. Wir zahlen für die Geräte und sollten dann nicht ein Objekt für #Data Mining und Datenanalyse dieser Unternehmen werden.

🥳 A new version of csv-diff has just been released! 🚀

https://docs.rs/csv-diff/latest/csv_diff/

csv-diff is the fastest CSV-diffing library in the world - written in #Rust

It can compare two 1,000,000 rows x 9 columns CSVs in < 600ms!

Note that this is still a beta release and the library itself is still very young.

"Frantic individual efforts to swat away digital intrusions will do too little. What’s needed, for all Americans, is a full legal and political reckoning with the reckless manner in which digital technology has been allowed to invade our lives. The collection, use and manipulation of electronic # must finally be regulated and severely limited. Only then can we comfortably enjoy all the good that can come from these technologies."

I don’t understand what the story is here. If the USB stick was properly encrypted, as the article appears to state, the data is not “lost”. The loss of the USB stick itself is incidental.

Fucking hell, as some of you have pointed out in the comments, also, it’s tied to my router. I have the same router I had in Malmö. If this is not a GDPR violation, I have no idea what is.

So Mozilla – Defender of Privacy™ – is storing my location history, tied to my router, without ever having gotten consent from me to do so.

This is a fucking scandal.
