@rhizoet I guess there are a lot of interesting organisations. I shared a list here: news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2
Maybe it can be a starting point?

Fediverse and Matrix hosting and support non-profits would be amazing.

And to your earlier question, I still don't really buy digital music, Spotify user here, haven't found a good alternative. If there would be a similar platform without tracking and where I could buy tracks, I would like to look into it, but I would want to listen to the same songs :)

Did you already ?


I, too, call on the European Commission to strictly regulate the use of biometric technologies in order to avoid undue interference with fundamental rights.

@sexybiggetje Mmmm the documentary is more about the ecological consequences of the fishing industry. There was a lot of information in there that was new to me, so I will be more strict about fish as I am with meat.

I have spent quite some time learning about healthy food habits, so not so worried about that part. I'm eating mostly whole foods - plant based for a few years, a lot of fruits, nuts, veggies and beans, in combination with a 16-hour daily fast (:

World bank report: Data for better lives


"Data is a powerful weapon in the fight against poverty—one that can potentially transform the lives of poor people. But it’s also a double-edged sword. New rules of the road are called for—a social contract for data—to get more value out of data while protecting people against harm and ensuring access and representation."

There is a lot of work to do.

We could start by banning trading in personal data :)

This was an amazing talk at Outlier!


"Watch this talk from Mick Yang and Bella Chua to hear how they find data viz angles on niche topics from their community and translate intangible cultural experiences into informative and engaging data stories."

I think all journalists are biased, but to know whats going on in the world books and investigative journalism are probably better than news? ;)

For news, I guess The Guardian, El Pais (english.elpais.com/), the BBC (bbc.com/news/world/asia) or Le Monde (in French) are good places to start?

I would be interested in podcasts sharing news from around the world! :)

Veritasium on light bulbs, obsolescence and repairability: "This is why we can't have nice things"


"How we emerge from this crisis is deeply rooted in our relationship with nature. Every individual action will matter in putting people and planet first."



Hmm nice rant indeed! Installing a new OS is something I keep postponing... already planned to install linux mint multiple times.. thanks for the reminder :)

@robb_nl Lijkt me niet bewust, dat komt wellicht nog ;-) Het hele verhaal is trouwens wel een prachtig voorbeeld van 'Privacy is Power'!

Ollongren en Jorritsma zijn gestopt met de formatie, omdat Ollongren één A4'tje met notities liet zien.

"Data is het nieuwe uranium" - Mikko Hyppönen, 5-3-2021

Misschien kan iemand ze 'Privacy is Power' van Carissa Véliz opsturen?
