@Tuxhedoh Because Google is gather too much info on too many people. It's dangerous. Invidious is FOSS, you can find the source here: github.com/omarroth/invidious

Want to watch videos from YouTube without using YouTube in an app on your phone/tablet? Try NewPipe. You can find it in F-droid.

Did you know that you can watch all YouTube videos without YT?

Invidious lets you watch all the videos, with the same title, so they're easy to find invidio.us/

But it's easier to click a link someone shares, so what to do about that?

Well, I just found this Firefox extension that auto-redirects you from YT to Invidious! addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

There's even one that replaces all YT embeds! addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

Yeah! Added to my "must have" list addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

Over at copybuzz, @glynmoody@twitter.com covers the current state of #article13 noting that the supposed 'protections' for small businesses and memes are refuted by all experts and it is clear upload filters will be a result from the law.

@R10T Do you know that the Norwegian Forbrukerrådet did this some years ago? forbrukerradet.no/undersokelse I think they live streamed it on video

Latest news from the fairytale kingdom of :

The girlfriend of the minister of justice has been indicted for attacking their own home (spray painting very poorly written accusations of being racist) and setting fire to their own trash can and car(!).

This is the fifth minister of justice from the populist right wing Progress party in almost as many years. The rest where also outed by scandals, in case that wasn't obvious.

Yep.

"she determined that there is no such thing as a trademark in an artistic style, and that DSE does not have an enforceable trademark in the typeface used for the title, so the use of a Seussian typeface for Oh, the Places You’ll Boldly Go! is not trademark infringement."

Interesting case.

THIS is the rallying cry I needed on a Monday morning…

“But if we are going to talk about smashing patriarchy and dismantling systems of oppression (as we should!), we need to understand the role of surveillance and data exploitation in perpetuating and enhancing those systems”

I want to share something I feel very attached to and that is the firestarter community magazine.

firestartermagazine.com/get_th

It is a artist magazine focusing on community, events, interviews and learning. It's a very good project and the magazines are made free to be downloaded again. To keep this is the magazine needs much more support and attention.

@AMDmi3 Singling out all the women to attack them personally is great because it's an attempt at keeping out people who want everyone to be included? Really? I want FOSS to enjoy the benefits of as many developers as possible, and the viewpoints of as many possible user groups as possible, so noone gets a worse experience because the devs didn't think of them.
You'd rather get worse products to keep women and/or minorities away? Really?

@gargron Is there supposed to be a poll here? Can't see it in @Tusky (using Octodon)

Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
