A good article on W3C's bad decision to endorse digital restrictions as a normal part o the web.

The author also links to a description of the 2016 protest against EME that happened after LibrePlanet. I've included a link to that protest in my own pictures of that event.

Fake Values at Github
Given my work in trying to make open source more inclusive and welcoming, what could give me more influence in creating better communities than working at the very center of the open source universe? ...I am increasingly of the opinion that in hiring me and other prominent activists, they were attempting to use our names and reputations to convince the world that they took diversity, inclusivity, and social justice issues seriously.
