Just finished preparing my presentation for the European Parliament on Tuesday. I’m representing @Mastodon and small technology there on a panel to discuss the future of the Internet and I hope we can get the regulators to at least not fuck things up for our ethical alternatives.
My slides (not hugely meaningful without the narrative but in case you’re curious) are here:
Remind me again why I let you talk me into this, @Gargron? ;P
@aral @vincib @Mastodon @Gargron Looks like it's here: https://video.lqdn.fr/videos/watch/861c07f7-7e9b-4e64-9765-cf1de592c8a0
As important as this is - and it's incredibly important - I can't fathom how you can do this in 10 minutes. Even with these slides.
At some point (well after this presentation) if you could share with me (and others) how you approached this and how you were able to condense it into what you created here.
(I won't ask you to share how it went, as I am fairly sure you already know we're all anticipating the response greatly... the tone of the meeting, whether anyone seemed receptive, etc.)
@aral I love the no's and yeses for regulation and the GDMR proposal.
@aral this is awesome and am really glad you are making this effort. I hope they are paying attention!
