2021-05-10 Messaging and Chat Control

The End of the Privacy of Digital Correspondence, by Patrick Breyer: “This is to allow the providers of Facebook Messenger, Gmail, et al, to scan every message for suspicious text and images. This takes place in a fully automated process and using error-prone “artificial intelligence”. If an algorithm considers a message suspicious, its content and meta-data are disclosed automatically and without human verification to a private US-based organization and from there to national police authorities worldwide. The reported users are not notified.”

Uuuugh. 😟

Time for a self-hosted xmpp server in a third world country?

I’m not very happy with the XMPP server’s I’m on. Have you tried it, with a client on the phone, encrypting all your messages? My impression is that this isn’t very friendly.
