Can we please have this in Germany, too? We have the same rules, but we don't enforce them. Close passes are never prosecuted, let alone by undercover police.

»Google is aggressively using its monopoly position in Internet services such as Google Mail, Google Calendar and YouTube to advertise Chrome. Browsers are a mature product and its hard to compete in a mature market if your main competitor has access to billions of dollars worth of free marketing.«

»Endlich einmal eine Umweltrevolution, die funktioniert. Erstaunlicherweise hält sich die Begeisterung der Politik sehr in Grenzen. Was man hört, sind Bedenken. Sind diese Räder mit ihrem "irren" Tempo von 25 km /h nicht viel zu schnell, fragen Politiker, die Tempo 250 auf der Autobahn ganz in Ordnung finden.«

»Eco-consumerism may expiate your guilt. But it’s only mass movements that have the power to alter the trajectory of the climate crisis. This requires of us first a resolute mental break from the spell cast by neoliberalism: to stop thinking like individuals.«
The breakdown of carbon emissions since 1988? A hundred companies alone are responsible for an astonishing 71 percent. You tinker with those pens or that panel; they go on torching the planet.

The headline is misleading: Trading personal data is neither new nor related to Open Source. People aren't trading their data for code but for 'free' services. It's just that the providers of these services have discovered Open Source–just like everybody else in the industry.
Nevertheless the article has a point: FOSS developers should think twice what projects they use and contribute to. We cannot advocate Free and Open Source software if we don't speak up for privacy.

I wanted to share this right after reading the headline and recommend switching to Kolab.Thankfully +Bryan Lunduke already has this covered: "I have been using the +Kolab Now hosted service for my email and calendaring for quite some time now. It is fast, is consistent, and has excellent usability—really nothing at all for me to complain about. I recommend it whole heartedly."
