Then #Uber, for example, does a great job of optimizing how we hail cars, and that’s terrific for people that need to find cars, but it turns out to be pretty bad for people that want to drive cars and make a good living doing it. Those drivers are at the whim of one large cor

#5G #Security - doesn't exist ...


source: https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2020/01/china_isnt_the_.html
Chinese, Iranians, North Koreans, and Russians have been breaking into U.S. networks for years without having any control over the #hardware, the software, or the companies that produce the devices. (And the U.S. National Security Agency, or #NSA, has been breaking into foreign networks for years without having to coerce companies into deliberately adding #backdoors.) Nothing in 5G prevents these activities from continuing, even increasing, in the #future.
...
5G security is just one of the many areas in which near-term corporate #profits prevailed against broader social good. In a capitalist free market #economy, the only solution is to regulate companies, and the United States has not shown any serious appetite for that.

Intervista a Giuseppe Longo 2016


Kep - 2020-01-18 08:04:01 GMT
https://www.roars.it/online/complessita-scienza-e-democrazia/

Una intervista molto interessante a Giuseppe Longo in cui si parla di scienza, ricerca, rating accademici, e riduzionismo meccanicista. Dove il consenso scientifico resta il freno per innovazioni teoriche e sperimentali.

Open Letter to Richard Stallman About the Free Software Movement


http://techrights.org/2020/01/13/rms-free-software-movement/
First I would like to suggest a slight shift in meaning to the term “Free Software”. I think you will agree that Freedom is a practical matter, which is to say it is realized in practice. Another way to put this: it is not the software which is intrinsically free (software does not care), it is the users/developers who become free upon their use of the “free” software. Now, if the users’ ability to (“freely”) benefit from the freeness licensed in a software project is in any way impacted, the users are losing some portion of their software freedom.

The license remains as-is, but yet system elements or a non-free development environment can make the software far less free. Keep in mind that “control” is closely akin to “ownership”, and so means of control can thus be monetized.
