Happy Safer Internet Day!

Happy Safer Internet Day

Just learned about this thing. Meant to post about it yesterday, as that was the day for it, but I was busy diagnosing faulty computer RAM and catching the second LOTR movie on new movie theater premiere - review to come.

But check your passwords y'all. If you haven't. Or whatever else it is they urge you to do on days like this. Be safe.

Apparently it's the 20th anniversary of this event this year too. And there is a bundle of resources for such I assume relevant Internet-related safeness here if you want to browse. 2,350 links at the time of writing.

I haven't. I feel sufficiently much like a pro at this point that I need not spend time on such things, but I probably should. The world changes; threats evolve; it probably would do me good...

They have live events in a bundle of countries when the day takes place too. Some that span a longer time; some you can catch up with after said day is done and over.

That's it y'all. For now it has passed but: maybe it was a blast huh?

    I'm quite against EU vision of internet. I want to WWW become anarchy that's not controlled by big corporations like Google and to not be controlled by government. I want it to be unsafe.

    Ah that's why you didn't comment on this earlier maybe.

    I don't like government control either, at least to the point it stifles creativity or freedom of speech, I miss the days when you could pretty much pirate anything you wanted; nobody seemed to care. Copyright wasn't enforced. It really WAS anarchy, you could say... but I also got a ton of viruses and my accounts hacked a few times.

    So as far as safety goes I do think it's good with standards in regard to security, in regard to accounts and personal info, so you can have your logins in peace, and know that info you share won't be sold or abused; is somewhat in your control, and that some of the EU directives lately probably did come about with good intentions and stuff like this in mind, but ultimately just seem to lead to more surveillance, and make independent sites have a hard time complying with regulations while bigger ones easily find loopholes and keep going as they were anyway...

    I'd like a balance. No surveillance; less restriction, but still security... hard to combine though.

    I really have no idea the EU are actually lobbying for with this particular day btw, hope it's nothing I'm against, if it's just to teach people about basic password security and stuff though: I'm for that.

    Ey if there ever actually is an opportunity to get there without having to go through the politics of it all I'll take it!

    Feel like I might be able to really change some things for the better. At least I'd have the ambition to. Bureaucracy though... might get in the way.
