Mozilla’s now director of public policy once asked me, with a straight face, why I was giving them a hard time and holding Mozilla to a higher standard: “we’re just another Silicon Valley tech company.”

But that’s not what you tell people publicly, is it, Mozilla?

Still, it’s time y’all got this.

Mozilla is a half-billion-dollar for-profit corporation – whose CEO makes >$3M/yr – that has a foundation do its PR.

Apple's chickens are coming home to roost even for blind people now. Today, the Flicktype keyboard team announced that their keyboard, which made typing as fast for blind people as it is for the sighted, will be taken off the App Store because of Apple's terrible treatment of them. Of course, Apple won't care, but the blindness community is tightly knit, for better or worse, so I could see a few people consider Android for their next phone, even if just a little. And I know y'all have heard this before, but I could see blind people really flock to FOSS. So FOSS must be ready when, not if, that happens. I mean, maybe Apple will be forced to open up. But they'll fight it every step of the way. So let's be ready!

Dear journalists,

This isn’t about a PR snafu by Apple. This is about Apple crossing a very real line in terms of de facto removing any expectation of privacy from mainstream networked personal technology.

Après la loi SG, nos échecs au Conseil d'État, le règlement de censure terro, la loi séparatisme, l'échec de nos plaintes GAFAM... ces derniers mois n'annoncent rien d'heureux.

Nous continuerons la lutte, sous toutes ses formes. Merci pour votre soutien :

Notre plateforme de fuite de documents nous a permis de repérer que sous couvert de « territoire intelligent », Angers a voulu expérimenter reconnaissance faciale, détection de comportement suspects ou encore suivi d'une personne sur plusieurs caméras.
