I don't recall where I encountered this phrase, but I think it should be my motto.

Hi there,

my name is Jens; nice to meet you!

I figured it was time for a new .

A few years back I started the project to provide a next generation internet that better incorporates human rights protections. No, I don't expect to be done anytime soon :) I'm likely to barge into discussions adjacent to this topic.

I live in the countryside with my family and my tortoise, and like watching things grow.

I also started the tag. Maybe that's for you?

Please read + Boost! :boost_ok:

Currently, estonian activist Katrina Indiana is fighting for a change in the Estonian law regarding how #racism and #hatespeech is defined, and will be handled and punished in future cases.

Please help them win this case by donating to the #Estonian #HumanRights Center who are supporting Katrina pro-bono.

You can donate here:

I’m adding more toots for the whole story, more information, and links:

Anybody has recommendations of websites to create events that could be used instead of Facebook?
The events are activist types, so marches, workshops, etc.

[boosts appreciated]

... confusion first, and later the guilt of somehow not being good enough for about that long.

I no longer feel guilty, but still sad that she didn't get the better me that she deserved.

Nothing much to do about it, but it's a good time to remember and wish her well.

(Yes, vagueposting this, suck it up.)

Just now I realized that I left high school 25 years ago. Pretty much around this time of year, I tanked my finals exam.

This also means that just over 25 years ago, I had a very short relationship end under rather horrifying circumstances, which I didn't understand sufficiently at the time.

It took me about 10-15 years to process and realize the truth, at which point I reached out and apologized for my behaviour. Expectedly, I was told it wasn't my fault - it wasn't, but I had carried the...

I've got a really, really specific question --

For those of you who have ever had that stress dream about being back in high school, and either having missed a lot of one certain class that year / forgot to study for a certain exam...

What subject was it in?

The EU Commission is planning automatic CSAM scanning of your private communication – or total surveillance in the name of child protection. This would be the worst surveillance apparatus outside of China:
#Fight4Privacy #No2Backdoors

Ok, ok, ok. FINALLY the date is set for signing the founding documents for the non-profit. June 1st.

Feelings of legitimacy overwhelm me, please send help.

One of these days I'm going to sort through my browser tabs.


Ich möchte dem noch ein A hinzufügen, wie ich es erfreulicherweise z.B. vor ein paar Jahren in Frankfurt erlebt hab #IDAHOBITA #AsexualVisibility

Kommissarin Johansson hatte kein Interesse an Gesprächen mit Wissenschaft und Digitalrechtsexpertinnen. Kein Wunder dass jetzt ein Frontalangriff auf unsere Grundrechte herausgekommen ist. #Zensursula gefällt das. Jetzt müssen wir alle zusammen gegen die #Chatkontrolle ankämpfen! Die Totalkontrolle jeglicher Kommunikation ist mit einer demokratischen Gesellschaft nicht zu vereinbaren.
Unterschreibt den Appell von @digitalcourage, @digiges, #DigitaleFreiheit und #Campact:

Idea for a fedi bot which I don't want to spend time to implement, but which I think would be good: have it package all replies to it that reference a thread from @EU_Commission into an email sent to a random EC Spokesperson on with a link to the OP.

is definitely the reason, thanks for asking.

Me: When will I remember to CamelCase my hashtags?

Also me: squirrel!


OK, then maybe you should do something against Viktor #Orban, not against safe #communication online?


@EU_Commission Except for we have every right to be afraid since you're giving dangerous countries like Hungary and Poland powerful tools like #chatcontrol to find and oppress even the last of us. And don't get back at me with "but it's just for pedophiles blabla", everyone knows these regimes try to label every single LGBTIQ* as pedo, not even mentioning how faulty the AI detection will be.

No, I'm not feeling safe in the EU anymore.

@EU_Commission If #ChatControl implements a backdoor on message apps, people that live in countries that is forbidden to be lgbtq+ will be not only afraid but in danger to text their true colours. Please stop this #masssurveillance madness.


Who is saying this? How can we know this is true if you are like Jekyll and Hyde?

> "Don't be afraid to be who you are. Don't be afraid to show your true colours"

"Don't be afraid.. as you've got nothing to hide, because we'll expose all your private online communications to strangers to judge you, with our #ChatControl dystopia" 🤖

"Don't be afraid to ditch your basic right for #privacy as Silicon Valley and shadowy agencies will watch over you. We MEP's know little of tech."
