Technology in the City of People
I’m presenting the opening keynote at the Foreplay conference organised by Digipolis in the city of Ghent next week.
The character of the technologies we implement in our cities determine our freedoms as citizens. Centralised or decentralised? Proprietary or free/open? Owned by corporations or by us? The answers we choose will decide whether our “smart cities” become homes or panopticons. https://mastodon.ar.al/media/etawdkHyGjHIe_QAaUw
Guys, rejoice, today's #LibreMonday again!
That #Mastodon hashtag has seen some nice contributions, but I'd still want to see more.
Sharing is caring and that's a great way to contribute back to your favorite #libre projects :)
Check https://framapiaf.org/tags/libremonday for existing posts.
Let's make it into the top 5 of #trending hashtag today :)
Regarding the Internet of People, I would love to see it continue within DiEM and yet, at the same time, I want to see it developed publicly (not behind a members-only forum). I will be mirroring any content I’ve written/contributed on forum.ind.ie and I intend to continue the work there, publicly, to develop the policies with a panel of respected experts in the field.
Especially given the extremely high voter turnout, I see this as a vote of no confidence in the work I need to perform in the coming months. As such, please accept this as my resignation from the Advisory Panel. I do not feel I have a democratic mandate to maintain such a position.

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend and a great summer so far.
I just saw the Coordinating Collective results and that I received 18% of the vote based on the single issue I was championing, which is the continued development of the Internet of People pillar and its internal application at DiEM25. The latter is hugely important as we cannot have policies that we do not, ourselves, follow.

And if you want to support your local instance get in touch with your admin to see what they need!
Remember, every bit counts, so supporting with only $1/month does help us!
So, in case you’re wondering about the resolution to this, I wrote up an answer on a StackOverflow thread where someone else was seeing exactly the same symptoms (although the cause of their issue may be different):
Now I still have an issue where the UIBarButtonItem instances in the NavigationBar instances are not tappable. Looks like an auto layout issue with the system bar button items. FML.
Tech ♥ Democracy?! Conducting & Communicating Politics in the Age of Digital Capitalism
@Lea, Fabian Baumgärtner (DSC Vienna), and Fabian Kors (DSC Munich) have been working hard to prepare a local meeting in Passau, Germany this weekend that I will be taking part in and presenting at.
Please help spread the word and drop by if you’re in the vicinity.
Want new large titles in your iOS 11 views? It’s one line of code, they said… :)
Many hours later, still buggy with UITabBarController subclass → UINavigationController subclass → UITableViewController subclass setup.
(The navigation bar displays collapsed as per regular iOS 10 view and only grows if you “pull it down” by scrolling the view down.)
@FerdiZ I have zero trust in Eyeo due to the hypocritical bullshit that is AdBlock Plus & “Acceptable Ads” (that’s why Laura and I built Better to start with – https://better.fyi/). That said, Flattr’s CEO (Linus) is a top guy (& a dear friend, like Peter) who cares about all the right things. He still leads Flattr at Eyeo. More power to him, as they say, but I’m not sure if any one person can change an entire company’s business. Let’s prepare for the worst and hope for the best :)
