Personal Data Protection bill not pass in this Indian parliament session.

Reason: is a huge market. Nandan & team not finished capturing that market yet. Pending items include Account Aggregator.

Wait & watch

First Mastodon server migration experiment

Migrated to this instance by @ashwink . My old toots are at aana.site/@anivar

Loved the way social graph is autoimported. The following list need export and import

The toots wont be migrated and not possible to import, but remains at previous instance, but possible to download as tar.gz file.

This is an actual graphic from today’s lead Times of India op-ed. Made presumably by one of their staff.

@shreevari @anivar Additionally, if there are sensitive keys in git history of the original repository, that means every developer who has access to the original repository has access to those keys. This is a devops security failure.

The government of India has not made Aarogya Setu app's source code open source. It has set up a fake repository with code that is similar to the original source code of Aarogya Setu. This is a lie. twitter.com/asdofindia/status/

Source github.com/nic-delhi/AarogyaSe

There is so much . Name-calling, references to derail, foreign money, vested interest, activist agenda

all started by a GitHub account created 3 days back

Looks like a repeat episode of trolling Aadhaar critics.

But no active engagement from current maintainers.

The only commits after the release was adding the names of 7 new people in the contributors' list. These include @amitabhk87 to @Arghya_justify 🤦‍♂️

An analysis of viral app's source code is identical to Pakistan's TicTic app. It has emerged that Mitron's developer had purchased the source code of TicTic for $34 on 1 April and rebranded it. @Maha_Shoonya & @squeal report.

Still, Playstore version running Proprietary code, and not open-sourced version. There is a feature request for verifiable builds github.com/nic-delhi/AarogyaSe from the public open-sourced repo. This should be an immediate priority, along with reviewing PRs by current maintainers

This is extremely absurd terms. A real world attack does not get covered here.
The phrasing is extremely clever to limit the scope and eligibility. twitter.com/SetuAarogya/status

India @NICMeity @mygovindia @amitabhk87 @meity Open Source has a definition and @OpenSourceOrg approves Licenses. Free Software has been clearly defined by @fsf forever.

Don't try to redefine terms and call them Open.

The battle between Twitter and Trump is escalating, and this might not end well for the rest of us. Trump's executive order on social media achieves little, but it's more of a threat that it could change the way the Internet works.

Whether Aadhaar, cctv surveillance, AI or facial recognition, the datafication of our bodies today does not only entail a loss of control over our data, but over our bodies, autonomy, and freedom. Not to see this link is at our own peril. deepdives.in/when-our-bodies-b
