The Data Transfer Project is definitely a progress in positive direction. Especially after open standards were kinda forgotten in public discourse for about 2 decades. But it's worth reminding that data portability is only a precursor to data interoperability or, better yet, federation. Ideally, the data would be completely decoupled from the services using them as e.g. https://solid.mit.edu/ aims to achieve.
But honestly, this is up to us users to seek such change, big tech companies will hardly ever initiate it.

Z českých europoslanců pro schválení #LinkTax #Article11 a #CensorshipMachines #Article13 hlasovali Stanislav Polčák (STAN) a Michaela Šojdrová (KDU-ČSL).
Pan Polčák publikoval zklamaný článek, o tom, že Evropa promarnila šanci k diskusi, jako by nevěděl, že měl hlasovat PROTI, aby diskusi umožnil. V květnu 2019 jsou příští volby do EP.

Phew, the threat (https://plus.google.com/+OndrejPokorny/posts/WkjkuTnmWjb) is deferred for another 2 months... How do we prevent these fuck-ups from happening again? What a tremendous waste of time teaching EU representatives internet 101. I'm tired of doing their work for them.

The level of dilettantism and/or corruption in this EU copyright proposal is mind-boggling. Please, call your European Parliament representatives on Wednesday to help stop this madness.

The sad part about such powerful technology as Google Duplex is that it is even necessary for simple tasks like scheduling a meeting. Just because humanity wasn't able to agree on common data exchange standards which would solve it much more efficiently. We had to build huge-overhead AI speaking the same rudimentary low-bandwidth languages which will continue wasting energy.

Oh great, opening Tasks in new +Gmail deleted all my tasks from the default task list! Sure, you can call it "A fresh start", I guess...

Well if this is the Google master plan to fix the messaging mess, I'm moving my messaging elsewhere. Why on earth would I willingly tie myself to a phone number and surrender to carriers? No thanks.
Google is finally going to fix the messaging mess on Android. In this bonus episode of Processor, Dieter Bohn exclusively explains how Hangouts and Allo are getting replaced.

Russia blocked 5 million IP addresses so far and Telegram is still running

Let's see if Russian users are more valuable for Amazon and Google than half the internet is for Russia.
Anyway, pretty sure Russia is working on it's version of Great Firewall by now.

There's already an option to pay for Google, including a social network

"Facebook and Google need ad-free options says Jaron Lanier" Like... +G Suite? :) I'm paying for my Google account for years. No ads, different terms (all the data is mine), I own my e-mail address, have support, SLA... Ad-free +Google+ included. #privacy #TED2018
