"Legislation is flying through Congress that would unleash a wave of censorship and create huge fines for everyday people who share memes or just download photos from the Internet.

The bill is called the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE) Act, and the supporters of the bill want it passed by the end of this year.1 We need to take action NOW to stop it.
...
The CASE Act would create an unaccountable, industry-friendly kangaroo court with the power to hand out $15,000 fines for:

Worse yet, the bill would give politicians, corporations, and government officials the power to censor speech by filing frivolous takedown notices in this newly empowered β€œsmall claims” court.2 If this law passes, videos comparing political candidates could be shut down for months and kept offline until after the election.

The bill is intended to ensure that artists and photographers can be fairly compensated for their work. But the law is drafted so poorly that it would have drastic unintended consequences. Unfortunately, because the bill is flying through Congress so fast, we need to make major noise right now to stop it.

The CASE Act is backed by some of the most powerful corporate lobbyists in Washington, D.C., and the bill has passed out of committee in the Democratic-led House and the Republican-led Senate."

If you haven't tried it recently, you should really have a look at OSMAnd...

I had issues with
- navigating public transport. It now has routing, timetables and more for most cities ( even small ones that Google doesn't have)
- The size of maps. It now has online maps that work very well and I got a 128GB phone if I really need them offline..
- Finding addresses. Well, since recently, find them has been easy, and accurate in near all cases.

And it doesn't have publicity for Ubers and shit

Does anyone on the #fediverse have an old/nonfunctional OnePlus One they want to get rid of?

I want to fix mine which has a broken back cover and volume buttons. Sadly they don't make parts for these anymore.

great comment by @kropot to me on my poorly written blog post:

''we need to understand how people build movements of despair''

does anyone else have any good reading on this?

how do people build these powerful movements based around being discouraged about the goodness of the future?
