Warning: long post ahead! Something that keeps me busy lately: the monopolies of the giant tech industries. This is also partly why I wanted to move my stuff to my own website. This time I put on my hat of computer scientist. For governments, dictatorships are despised (atleast around here), but when we talk about big corporations, they get a free pass. Think about it what kind of power we are giving these companies, to control what’s being put out on the interwebs.
It has been all over the news: the murder of George Floyd by a police officers. I must admit: this feels like something far from my whereabouts. I am a white guy and I don’t live in the USA. Still, I would like to use this opportunity to remind authorities should respect citizens, regardless of skin color. There is no need for violence. In addition I would like to give my respect to refugees which are stuck in camps.
