Google seems to think that everyone's problem with privacy is that the tracking is happening on their servers. So they've added code to Chrome to violate your privacy locally instead. Their goal is to make behavioral targeting possible without third party cookies, which a lot of people now block. But the reason people block third party cookies is because they don't want to be tracked at all.

SDL moves to Github 😕

> And I grew up during the heyday of the Free Software Foundation, so I *know* this is a trap, but I’m *tired* and don’t have the energy to be a server admin for something that’s held together with scotch tape and prayers when I’m really supposed to be writing OpenGL code.

Google have suspended Element in the Play Store without notifying us; we're reaching out to find out what's going on. Apologies for the inconvenience; in the interim there's f-droid.org/en/packages/im.vec but it's a few versions behind. We'll post updates here.

#Minetest is 10 years old! It was first released publicly on the 10/October/2010. Here's to 10 years more.

You can download the first version from here, it's a Windows executable but works well in wine: packages.8dromeda.net/minetest

Seven years ago, as the news declared I was being charged as a criminal for speaking the truth, I never imagined that I would live to see our courts condemn the NSA's activities as unlawful and in the same ruling credit me for exposing them.

And yet that day has arrived. t.co/FRdG2zUA4U

I was notified that @tateisu's Mastodon app "Subway Tooter" has received a warning from the Google Play Store citing user-generated content that "incites discrimination".

A Mastodon app does not host or promote any content. The user types the address to connect to. The responsibility of moderating resides with that server. So unless Google is going to drop Chrome, Firefox and Opera from its platform, this is completely out of line.
