New #Firefox version 72 loses HPKP support.


But there is nothing mentioning it in official release notes. Everyone seems to be talking about much needed PiP video functions. However there is announcement on Firefox Site Compatibility and the function is indeed disabled after upgrade.

Non-techy explanation: Most sites use encryption (that padlock in the address bar). Encryption not only protects your data from eavesdroppers but also ensures you are indeed connected to the site you see in the address bar and not some counterfeit copy run by hackers. However there are ways to fool this identity verification if hackers have access to certificate authorities. This can be done by legal means (governments), administrative (your employeer might do this on their network) or illegally (leaks, hacks, CA bugs, etc) - but it is not uncommon. HPKP allows website owners to configure their websites in a way that these hijacking attempts fail. Only small percentage of websites uses HPKP but it does work and I see nothing wrong with it being enabled as option for more security-oriented resources.
Is this change disastrous and will we all die? No. Does it weaken security and makes us more vulnerable? Yes, it does,

Note that Firefox was the last to drop this functionality (Chrome did it almost one year ago) but the entire trend is sad. This feature was optional and transparent for users. If it worked it made you more secure with no extra effort. If it didn't there was zero overhead. With two major browses disabling it it is safe to say it is gone.

Personally my opinion is that this was done to improve compatibility with various traffic inspection systems. Basically it opens venues for big players to get into our traffic. But we trust these guys, right?

...
Thanks to @Max Kostikov for heads up.

Imagine being arbitrarily detained for 9 years for telling the truth and exposing the shit our government are doing in solitary confinement in Belmarsh prison, as if you were locked in a house and never be able to go outside, no books, no tv, no pet, no music, no friends, no lover...and the whole after being locked in a little embassy which became 1984 during the last two years

Motherload


Searching for freedom and connection in a gas-powered, digital and divided world.

Motherload is a crowdsourced documentary about a new mother’s quest to understand the increasing isolation and disconnection of the digital age, its planetary impact, and how cargo bikes could be an antidote.

Filmmaker Liz Canning cycled everywhere until she had twins in 2008. Hauling babies via car was not only unsustainable but took the freedom and adventure out of life, and Liz felt trapped. She Googled “family bike” and uncovered a global movement of people replacing cars with cargo bikes: long-frame bicycles designed for carrying passengers and heavy loads. Liz set out to learn more, and Motherload was born.

In the joy and dedication of the cargo bike community Liz saw that the choice to live by bike, instead of by car, has powerful positive repercussions. These people make sustainability looking really fun! Motherload asks why this is so and what it can teach us about mainstream culture.

Through her research Liz learns how the bicycle transformed society faster and more effectively than any other invention, facilitating women’s fight for the vote and giving the poor mobility for the first time in history. In 1896 Maria Ward wrote in Bicycling for Ladies:
“Riding the wheel, our own powers are revealed to us, a new sense is seemingly created… You have conquered a new world, and exultingly, you take possession of it.”
This all makes sense when Liz finds that humans are genetically hardwired to crave outdoor sensory experiences like riding a bicycle.

We feel this most urgently today, as our hunter-gatherer instincts are drowned out by the clamor of the digital age, and Americans spend 95% of our time indoors.

I was deeply shaken while witnessing yesterday’s events in Westminster Magistrates Court. Every decision was railroaded through over the scarcely heard arguments and objections of Assange’s legal team, by a magistrate who barely pretended to be listening.

Before I get on to the blatant lack of fair process, the first thing I must note was Julian’s condition. I was badly shocked by just how much weight my friend has lost, by the speed his hair has receded and by the appearance of premature and vastly accelerated ageing. He has a pronounced limp I have never seen before. Since his arrest he has lost over 15 kg in weight.

But his physical appearance was not as shocking as his mental deterioration. When asked to give his name and date of birth, he struggled visibly over several seconds to recall both. I will come to the important content of his statement at the end of proceedings in due course, but his difficulty in making it was very evident; it was a real struggle for him to articulate the words and focus his train of thought.

Until yesterday I had always been quietly sceptical of those who claimed that Julian’s treatment amounted to torture – even of Nils Melzer, the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture – and sceptical of those who suggested he may be subject to debilitating drug treatments. But having attended the trials in Uzbekistan of several victims of extreme torture, and having worked with survivors from Sierra Leone and elsewhere, I can tell you that yesterday changed my mind entirely and Julian exhibited exactly the symptoms of a torture victim brought blinking into the light, particularly in terms of disorientation, confusion, and the real struggle to assert free will through the fog of learned helplessness.

Designing Posters With Free Software

A few months back I was asked to design some poster for a local Free Software Foundation Event. ... Although many artists successfully use Free Software to create artworks, I repeatedly encounter many comments in discussion forums claiming that free software is not made for creative work. This post is also my effort in spreading awareness that one can do professional work with the help of F/LOSS tools.

How far did we come? See official text of EU > Without any judge any public authority can declare what is terror content. Another trojan horse to undercut civil rights and freedom of speech. This concerns me when you then know that they want and will install the #uploadfilter and they are about to pass #article13 Read the text in the link below, because it is important! If it become reality authorities can make you to become part of the surveillance complex:
  • any public authories can decide what is terror content
  • they can make you to take down content within one hour after notice
  • they want you then to install a uploadfilter in order to filter content and take control of you content > AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHY THEY WANT THE UPLOADFILTER!
REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on preventing the dissemination of terrorist content online
