In a crushing blow to digital rights, Australia has joined the UK in claiming the right to secretly compel tech companies to re-engineer software and hardware so it can be used to spy on their users. eff.org/deeplinks/2018/12/new-

@Famine Hmm, well, I am already talking to @href elsewhere, so I can give the address there?

@Famine Ooooh, nice! :-)))
You did send me those stickers in the envelope which had "french coffee" spilled on it, remember? Maybe you still have my address?

@dconley @kyzh One of my first children's books was "Mecki im Schlaraffenland" (1952), in German from Germany.
Sooo, yeah, apparently Germany is a land of candy and chocolate streets. ;-)

@kyzh People used to dream of "streets flowing with milk and honey".
I prefer chocolate. :-D

@Famine Well, you know I love your custom Mastodon-graphics,
because I keep posting those both here and at :birdsite: over and over (just did it again there :-D).
I'd love to see more of those, if you're ever in that mood.

The stand-up comedian Azhar Usman from USA, known e.g. from the excellent "Allah Made Me Funny"-tour/DVD, performed in Stockholm at "The Network for Youth's Future" (NΓ€tverket fΓΆr Ungdomars Framtid) four years ago.
I just edited together the 11 minutes that I thought were highlights for you:

"Remix Album" is short for:
Hey, we noticed an album was super-popular but the artist can't/hasn't released anything new (yet) so we figured we'd throw a lazy background unchanging House-drum, occasional Dubstep "wowowowhooom"-sound at it or dump so much feedback vocoder-filters on the singing that nothing remains of its soul and call the result "new". Give us money, plz?

Now also as a local article...

Human rights lawyer detained for posting a picture of himself in a yellow safety vest.
Or in full, "joining a terrorist group and promoting its ideas, spreading false news, possessing pamphlets and yellow vests to call for protests against the government similar to the β€˜Yellow Vest’ protests in France, and using social media to promote a terrorist group”.

@danishcookies Oh, absolutely.
My friends that I "met" online during the original liberatory revolution told me it is now worse than during the Mubarak dictatorship,
but then as now, the "world leaders" prefer Egypt under dictatorship and with economic exploitation imposed by IMF "loans" forcing neo-liberal policies, so they sell arms and surveillance equipment to the regime which is e.g. among the world's wost against Free Press (there is only one actual free newspaper left).

@Mailliw If anything, this action by the Egyptian military dictatorship may CAUSE people to start wearing yellow in protest of them and it obviously doesn't have to be safety vests.
So stupid.
