Hello world! The logical end-point of distribution and federation is a personal instance. This is my Mastodon instance.

Amazon has been fined about 1 day of turnover for adtech being in fundamental conflict with the GDPR. Their public reaction refuses to acknowledge Amazon understands the GDPR by saying 'but there wasn't a data breach!' As if their own conduct can't be reason enough.

De overheid overlegt stiekem met Rusland over gas en deelt die informatie vervolgens niet met de Kamer. Rutte ontkent dat er afspraken zijn gemaakt, maar uit documenten blijkt het tegendeel.


Psst, Yorianne, internet, je weet wel dat waar je deze complotfantasie deelt, is ook in het begin gefinancierd en ontwikkeld door DARPA. Zet gauw je router uit. De grafische user interface, en súperverdacht, de muis, ook met geld van DARPA ontwikkeld. Gauw je computer de deur uit! En vooral geen navigatie aanzetten ondanks dat je zo duidelijk verdwaald bent, want GPS, hate to break it to you, da's ook door DARPA ontwikkeld

Achtung: hier spricht die Bundesregierung. A SMS by the German federal government welcoming me to their turf. Nice, they should keep doing that even after Covid... :D

Hey HAM enthusiasts, I'm looking for my first mobile radio (to toss in the Suburban).
