[ukpol] A brexit related thing I did in 2016 that got to the front cover of Gay Times magazine
Compiling things I've done for a job application & revisited this data..
I mashed public information - on MP's voting on the same sex marriage bill in 2013 - with publicly declared stance on how they were likely to vote in the EU Referendum (aka Brexit).
A journalist contacted soon after, and a following article appeared on the front cover of the May 2016 issue of Gay Times.
While trying to convince us all that they take user #privacy seriously, Google is prohibiting ad blockers in Chrome. Trackers will be able to follow your activity across the Internet - and Google will be able to continue collecting its ad-based revenue.

Absolutely *superb* analysis here from Heather Burns (@email@example.com) on how the new "age appropriate design" regulation from the UK ICO is a *disaster*
TLDR is that it mandates *all* if us (yes, us - anyone in the UK or who runs a website that UK people can access) to become complicit in surveillance, profiling, and destructive fear-building. It's *awful*.
Do read, I hope it makes you as concerned as I am - the ICO needs to change tack on this...
Unity is coming to linux!
It's not libre & opensource or anything but cool to have more stuff for linux natively! I've heard that ableton is going to linux too but can't confirm it yet.

Nice touch. Mozilla has also deleted Telemetry data for that period as some users had to enable Telemetry to get the hot-fix.
"In order to respect our users’ potential intentions as much as possible, based on our current set up, we will be deleting all of our source Telemetry and Studies data for our entire user population collected between 2019-05-04T11:00:00Z and 2019-05-11T11:00:00Z."
