That's it for this year. No more work in 2021 (except a few final invoices to send). A day later than originally planned due to spreading out some work to accommodate the early school closure, but on the plus side, it could have been worse and already be Christmas Eve.

I made a little bookmarklet called scihub-this, which finds the first DOI on the web page and looks it up on sci-hub. Seems to work fine on JSTOR too, and it's one click from web page to PDF:

javascript:window.location = "" + document.querySelector('a[href*=""]').href

Dieser Artikel von Rena Tangens über 40 Jahre Datenschutzbewegung in Deutschland und ihre Motivation ist wirklich lesenswert. Gedruckt ist er auch in unserem Jahrbuch 2022 (gibt‘s im Buchhandel oder bei uns im Shop) enthalten.

Last week's GDPR/CCPA spam is a Princeton study but it's still very wrong. Careless selection, fake e-mails not declaring it's research, and worst ending with a legal threat that is a lie.

TIL: In an xml style sheet (xslt), testing for the existence of an attribute is not the same as testing whether an attribute has content.

Een gemeente die om een testenvoortoegang locatie vraagt.....bij de verkeerde Open Nederland, de vereniging nl, niet de stichting. De naamsverwarring blijft irritant en blijft tijd kosten.

Giving people "write access" is scary, and it shouldn't be.

An early morning feed reader item that made me go 'duh': Of course I should set my own starting page in my browser and replace the blank one I now have. Been running a localhost webstack for years for a series of small tools. Link to them from my browser startpage!

Can you help me find additional blogs to follow? I am looking to broaden the language and geogrpahic scope of blogs in my reader. See link for themes, languages, regions I'm interested in. Trying to break the anglosphere centricity in my reader.

🇬🇧 On 13/12 the IMCO committee will vote on the #DigitalServicesAct. According to the proposal the “do not track” browser setting would put an end to the cookie banner pest and stop surveillance ads! #surveillancecapitalism

Our latest #AdventReading is a real bombshell: 🔥

Turns out @DPCIreland has tried to lobby #Facebook's "#GDPR bypass" into @EU_EDPB guidelines - but the other DPAs pushed back hard!
