Fediverse shows that humanity lost their attention and some people live inside their screens. No doubt if you own many computers (or screens as I simple call it), you become an addict.

I become an addict in the 90s, and only the recent 5-6 years I realized my mistake.

Yeah #Zoom, enlighten us:

Why is the freaking Zoom app listening to our microphone when we are not in a meeting?

"Because we are a #privacy and #security nightmare club that only care about the big bucks that your #surveillancecapitalism harvested data allows us to exploit."

Go good, go #FOSS !

Have a #Jitsi #BigBlueButton #Matrix or other proper tool.

The Dutch non-profit Land van Ons (Land of Us) sent a letter to Murk Zorkerburg: "Please stay the hell of our lawn with your hyperscale datacenters", and will send these letters to the other FAANG, GAFAM, GMAFIA.
