I'm also open to suggestions of other interesting instances, mainly focused on the themes of hacking, digital rights, privacy...

@TheGibson the thing is that I want to interact more with the community, not only my timeline.

The masto instance I use (mamot.fr) is great: never had availability issues with it and it's managed by La Quadrature du Net.

But its local timeline is not that great, it's mostly posts in French which I don't speak.

I'm considering migrating. hackers.town is number one on my list, because it has a nice local timeline and I already follow some interesting people there.

How can I apply for an account there? Do I have to prove myself worthy or something? 😁 or just ask @TheGibson?

Recuperando um tema da semana anterior com impacto significativo, mas que passou ao lado de boa parte da imprensa e opinion makers.
A ascensão e queda dos instrumentos jurídicos que fingiam que direitos fundamentais e vigilância massiva são compatíveis.

I've just published a blog about and a software called Parsec that allows us to play old school games through the Internet with our friends.

It's in Portuguese but there's a translate button (bottom right of the screen) that makes an automated translation (expect some weirdness).

What an awesome footage of The Sugarcubes from 1988 with a very young Björk. What a beautiful voice she always had.

It is time for Twitter to fix this.

We wouldn't have to wonder if direct messages were read, intercepted, or exfiltrated in yesterday's hack if they were end-to-end encrypted. fixitalready.eff.org/twitter

A UE tem de rejeitar de vez a cultura de vigilância massiva dos EUA, ou abdicar da protecção dos dtos fundamentais dos cidadãos europeus. Não existe 3º via. É lamentável que tenha de ser sempre o TJUE a ter de vir em defesa dos nossos dtos fundamentais.
