Wednesday 15th of March 2023 09:44:01 PM
Fedora 38 is finally available for download... in Beta. Yes, the pre-release version of the Linux-based operating system can be installed now, but keep in mind, it is mostly intended for testing. Remember, folks, it is never wise to run an early version of a Linux distribution on your main machine due to bugs and potential data loss. If you understand the risks and decide to give the operating system a go, you will be treated to some exciting things, such as the GNOME 44 desktop environment and improvements to the rpm package manager.

[$] Rules as code for more responsive governance

Wednesday 15th of March 2023 08:53:20 PM
Using rules as code to help bridge the gaps between policy creation, its implementation, and its, often unintended, effects on people was the subject of a talk by Pia Andrews on the first day of the inaugural Everything Open conference in Melbourne, Australia. She has long been exploring the space of open government, and her talk was a report on what she and others have been working on over the last seven years. Everything Open is the successor to the long-running, well-regarded (LCA); Andrews (then Pia Waugh) gave the opening keynote at LCA 2017 in Hobart, Tasmania, and helped organize the 2007 event in Sydney.

Techdirt Podcast Episode 347: Why Is Congress So Wrong About Section 230?

Wednesday 15th of March 2023 08:30:00 PM
Misunderstandings (honest or otherwise) about Section 230 abound — across the political spectrum and, of course, in Congress. Each side believes weakening or eliminating the law will achieve its own distinct goals, and both sides are wrong. Following the most recent (but far from the first) very frustrating congressional hearing about Section 230, this week […]

Grab and de-DRM Kobo ebooks with kobodl

Wednesday 15th of March 2023 08:20:42 PM
Used with the Obok DeDRM plugin, Calibre can easily strip DRM from ebooks bought from the Kobo store. The combo works fine, but it has two downsides: you need to have access to the machine running Calibre, and you must connect your Kobo reader to the machine. While these are not deal-breakers, Kobodl provides a more elegant solution for downloading Kobo ebooks and liberating them from the DRM shackles.

WhatsApp Tells UK Government It’s Still Not Willing To Undermine Its Encryption

Wednesday 15th of March 2023 07:08:39 PM
The UK government is entertaining even more plans to undermine (or actually outlaw) end-to-end encryption.

Both Signal and Proton have made it clear they’ll pull their services rather than weaken their encryption to comply with UK government demands. […]

Tell the UK’s House of Lords: Protect End-to-End Encryption in the Online Safety Bill

Wednesday 15th of March 2023 06:52:50 PM
The UK government has had years to revise its Online Safety Bill into a proposal that wouldn’t harm users’ basic rights. It has failed to do so. As drafted, the Bill undermines end-to-end encryption and would make UK businesses and individuals less safe online—including the very groups that the bill intends to protect. Proposals like this threaten a basic human right: our right to have a private conversation. We know that several members are on the fence about this issue. Please help by telling them to protect encryption.
