Oh hey, +Issuepedia turned 10 yesterday! (Domain registered March 28, 2005; MediaWiki installed April 20... from what I can dig up in the history, it's not at all clear when I made the first real edit, but I can't think it would have been too long after.)

Just thought I'd mention that.

Android, Cyangogenmod, Microsoft FUD Round Up  There's a massive trolling effort underway on G+ and elsewhere by Microsoft to smear Google and Android.  Free software AOSP is somehow a monopoly while Microsoft's non free software is somehow Open.  Try making a fork of any Apple or Microsoft OS and see what happens.  Well, I'd like to laugh about it but can't because Microsoft has been so successful with this line of BS.  The subject matter and time frame is large enough for memory to be fuzzy and Microsoft is loud enough to drown everyone else out. 

The cyanogenmod story.  Good luck removing Microsoft's crapware from your phone.

Meanwhile, you have always been free to mod Android and then get the Google playstore on your own.  Replicant is yet another Android mod that is completely free software that GNU told you to put your effort into.  There are plenty of other Android mods out there, including Kindle, etc.  

There's also plenty of OS choices for ARM tablets and phones.  FirefoxOS, Ubuntu, several custom ROMs by OEMs, and what's left of Nokia's once proud gnu/linux adventure, Jolia.  All of this is possible because OEMs rejected Microsoft interference in ARM years ago,

Arm is a viable market today because OEMs did not want it to be like X86.

At the same time, Microsoft has mounted a massive FUD campaign to call Google a monopoly and itself "Open".  The audacity is truly amazing.

Thanks, +robert pogson, for keeping an eye on the ARM hardware market five years ago!
Cyanogen and Microsoft today announced a new partnership to bundle Microsoft apps and integrate various services with Cyanogen OS. In the announcement (received by email), the two companies will work together to offer a unique experience for Cyanogen users with native integration. Bing, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook and Microsoft Office were mentioned in the announcement....

+HarkyCinema again, you know their intent, you know their actions, and you knowingly use their software. Trying to twist what it is to make yourself feel better does not change the fact you through complacency and use, you support their actions of theft of software.

The author is too kind to FB.  There will never be evidence of news censorship unless an insider leaks, but there is already ample proof of FB's dishonesty.  The EULA demands that FB can misrepresent individual users for advertising and other purposes, of course FB will censor the news for fun and profit.

Heh.  The story won't load here.

"graffiti is some scary shit"  
 
Ausgerechnet in der extrem gesicherten Europäischen Zentralbank ist Europas oberster Währungshüter von einer Aktivistin aus dem Konzept gebracht worden. Just in dem Moment als Draghi die Zinsentscheidung der Notenbank erläutern will, sprang die junge Frau aufs Podium, bewarf Draghi mit Flugblättern und Konfetti und rief laut auf Englisch 
«Stoppt die EZB-Diktatur». 

Inzwischen hat die junge Dame ein Statement veröffentlicht, welches es mit an Sicherheit grenzender Wahrscheinlichkeit in kein öffentlich-rechtliches Programm schaffen wird.

We own our own lives -
Unsere Leben gehören uns -

and in the face of the overwhelmingly powerful external environment of the ECB’s monetary police,
sometimes it’s hard to remember.

und angesichts der überwältigend mächtigen äußeren Umgebung der EZB-Finanz-Politik
ist es manchmal schwer, sich daran zu erinnern.

We own our own lives - and they’re not the chips in the ECB’s gambling game,
not to be played with, not to be sold, not to be devastated.

Unsere Leben gehören uns - und sie sind keine Spiel-Münzen im Kasino-Spiel der EZB,
sie sind nichts, mit dem gespielt werden darf, nichts zum Verkaufen, nichts zum Zerstören.

We own our own lives! -will be the outcry of those who face repression,
when we begin to see our poverty not as personal defeat or unchangeable destiny.

Unsere Leben gehören uns! - das wird der Aufschrei sein derer, die Opfer von Repressionen sind,
wenn wir unsere Armut nicht mehr als persönliche Niederlage betrachten oder als unabänderliches Schicksal.

ECB, master of the universe,
I come to remind you that there is no god,
but there are people, behind those lives,
and if you rule instead of serving,
you will hear our outcries louder, brighter, inside and outside your halls, everywhere, and you shall deserve no rest.

EZB, Beherrscher des Universums,
ich bin gekommen Sie zu erinnern, daß es keinen Gott gibt,
aber sehr wohl Menschen hinter diesen Leben,
und wenn Sie herrschen anstatt zu dienen,
werden Sie unsere Aufschreie lauter hören und heller, in Ihren Hallen und davor, überall, und Sie werden keine Ruhe finden. ("verdienen")

And while the ECB can only persist in its autocratic hegemony, depending on states of surveillance and police,
finally, the daily violence is enrooted here,
we will find our radical answers
and act with no violence against those human disasters.

Und während die EZB nur als autokratische Vorherrschaft bestehen kann gestützt durch Überwachungs- und Polizei-Staaten,
und die alltägliche Gewalt schließlich hier verwurzelt ist,
werden wir unsere an die Wurzel gehenden Antworten finden
und ohne Gewalt gegen diese menschlichen Katastrophen vorgehen.

Because we will not accept the insane narrative that the ECB wants to impose to all people wherein even freedom of speech and dignity can be sold to the bank in order to survive. Persisting in its arrogance against the people, the ECB increases perilously its own debt to them. A press conference is not enough to call it "democracy".
I do not expect this illegitimate institution to hear my voice, neither to understand my message,
it would be too much to ask,
but I know for a fact that a lot of people do understand very well the matter.
Today I'm just a butterfly sending you a sentence, but be afraid more are coming. We will take back the power over our own lives.
The ECB’s debt is not yet paid.

Denn wir werden die geistesgestörte Geschichte, die die EZB allen Menschen überstülpen will, und in der sogar die Redefreiheit und die Würde an die Bank verkauft werden kann, um zu überleben, nicht akzeptieren. Indem die EZB auf ihrer Arroganz gegen die Menschen beharrt, erhöht sie in gefährlicher Weise ihre Verschuldung bei den Menschen. Eine Pressekonferenz ist nicht genug, um etwas als "demokratisch" bezeichnen zu können.
Ich erwarte nicht, daß diese illegitime Institution meine Stimme hört, noch, daß sie meine Botschaft versteht,
daß wäre zuviel verlangt,
aber ich weiß genau, daß eine Menge Menschen die Angelegenheit sehr genau verstanden haben.
Heute sende ich Ihnen nur einige Sätze als Schmetterlinge, aber seien Sie in Furcht - es kommt mehr. Wir werden uns die Bestimmung über unsere Leben zurüchholen.
Die Schulden der EZB sind noch nicht bezahlt.

Josephine Witt

The biggest star of today's ECB's press conference was not Mario Draghi but 21-year-old German feminist, Josephine Witt, an ex-Femen activist who jumped on Draghi's desk wearing an "ECB Dick-tatorship", a slogan she repeatedly screamed as she was led away by security guards. She threw paper copies of her demands at Mr Draghi, while showering him with confetti that were created from her finely chopped up manifesto. Who is Josephine Witt and what i...

Abstinence-only sex education doesn't work. We have plenty of proof of that.

Teenagers are going to have sex. Sex-Ed should be just that, education about sex. With emphasis put on respecting yourself and your partner enough to use protection and contraception.

My second quarter in college, I signed up for a basic health class. Taught by the coach of the men's baseball team. When we got to sex ed, it became clear there was going to be nothing in the way of discussion of safe sex. And even though I was a little older (half a decade in the Army before college), it was clear the vast majority of the18 & 19 year olds in the class had never had a real frank talk about sex. With anyone.

I asked for and received permission to talk to the class. I prepped safe sex kits for everyone, including female condoms, "kiss of mint" condoms, dental dams, and lube.

When I pulled out the box of bananas to hand around the class, the instructor said nothing. But I watched his face turn so red I was afraid he was going to have a stroke. Thankfully he contained whatever it was he was thinking.

After class that day, I was mobbed by teenagers thanking me for being the first person to actually cite specific facts about things like pregnancy, HIV infection, and STD prevention. A few days later I approached the Dean of students with a request: could I simply put a box of free condoms in the student center, and keep it full? No charge to the university at all.

It was over six months before I got the approval. 
Until yesterday, I only ever found out what happened in my son’s sex-ed classes by asking him about it. That was painful enough. In elementary school, he apparently learned that HIV is hereditary because you get it from your mother. In middle school, he had to help the teacher explain something about sex anatomy when the teacher was stumped and my son happened to know the facts. (I am a sex researcher and I work...

*A Good Place for Routine and Performance Service* I bought parts and used computers for gnu/linux boxes here five years ago. It's a great place for computer repair, parts. The owner is friendly, low key, and knows what he's doing. Most customers seemed satisfied. The shop also looked like a good place to build a gaming/media rig. It was filled with exotic motherboards, graphics cards, sound systems, etc. The owner is a gamer himself. The owner is a treasure. I would give the place five stars if it were not for tobacco use which may put people off when they walk in. Don't let it. The owner managed to keep the systems clean by walking outside to smoke.
