@ubuntustudio, the Linux distribution "for creative humans", will move to KDE's Plasma desktop by default for future releases. Plasma's "better tools for graphics artists and photographers" and lightness make it the ideal desktop for Ubuntu Studio's users.

The KDE community looks forward to working closely with Ubuntu Studio in delivering the best desktop experience to their users.

There is a big problem, a universal biometric ID without a strict legal framework of privacy laws can be a tool of oppression in the hands of a tyrant.

Congress failed to address this, their biggest SIN! twitter.com/rohanrgupta/status

The apps that we call "contact tracing" apps don't do contact tracing - they do "exposure notification." Exposure notification is a useful adjunct to the labor-intensive work of contact tracing, but it is no substitute for it.

@thecosmicawakening@qoto.org Making it mandatory especially look at the tactical way they are doing it. Its mandatory if you want to go to work! 🙄 One other idea was to make it mandatory if you want to use the public transport.

Yeah making it libre software is definitely a last resort demand but this draconian surveillance and degrading civil liberties must stop - disease or no disease we will loose the fundamental right to . 😢

@LinuxaTor@mastodon.technology Imagine getting thousand SMS and forwards from Whatsapp saying everyone to download it. 🤮

@AugierLe42e India has lot of migrant labour just like how eastern europe labour work in the west. Until last 2 days these migrants werent allowed to go back home, they didn't have job or any social security net to fall back during the lockdown.
So they started new trains which were charging the migrant labour not just the sleeper price but also extra surcharge. The same govt wasted money today by showering petals from air. 👎

Migrants! @newssting1@twitter.com cartoon #MigrantLabourers #lockdown

We have no money to send migrants home for free on a fancily named train. We have the money to waste on this petal sprinkling farce today by the airforce which helps nobody.
The empty gestures continue while substance evades us

Until 1945 when Germany was completely destroyed, Germans believed that Hitler's decisions are because of his patriotism for Germany

Sad that history repeats but in a different country

Dear advocates around the world, please oppose the pushing a surveillance app 👎 Aarogya Sethu using the pandemic as an excuse. The worst thing is that they are making it compulsory if you want to move out or start working!

Not to mention the app violates every single tenet of patient confidentiality. This is a medical horror before it is a a mass surveillance system

COVID19 is already a stigmatized infectious disease in #India. It'll make the work of HCWs even more difficult by spiking vigilantism twitter.com/the_kbeat/status/1

The Arogya Setu app, is a sophisticated surveillance system, outsourced to a pvt operator, with no institutional oversight - raising serious data security & privacy concerns. Technology can help keep us safe; but fear must not be leveraged to track citizens without their consent.
