Once again my #coop is hiring: app.beapplied.com/apply/bx6k4s

We do open data stuff for public good. This role in particular is focussed on beneficial ownership data analysis and standards development, but internally there's a lot of flexibility about what you work on and we have a variety of ongoing projects. It's particularly fun to do transparency and anti-corruption stuff though.

We have flat pay, are all remote, mostly UK-based, mostly part time, extremely flexi, and always looking for new ways to improve our wellbeing.

There's a birdsite thread with more info here: twitter.com/opendatacoop/statu (which I might recreate on here later).

One thing I've been doing lately for work, and which I wish were more of a standard practice, is paraphrasing what I was asked to do so the other person knows that I've understood and can correct me if I got anything wrong. This puts us both at ease. "Yes" or "I'll do it" just doesn't cut it for me except on the simplest of requests. This is especially useful when done in writing.

@baldur and anyone opposed to the USB-C mandate should do some research how things were before the EU pushed for Common External Power Supply (then: micro-USB):
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_e

"Hey, anyone has a charger for <Manufacturer> <Model> <Version>" was a common question, and in a group of 10 people often the answer was "no".

Plus, this standarization is literally what allowed powerbanks to become a thing.

Standardization breeds innovation.

If you use #GMail, #Google keeps records of everything you buy, even if you delete the email receipt, and even if you didn't buy the product from them. Here's metadata from my takeout showing price, delivery address, description, vendor, etc. #privacy

#BKA setzt #Pegasus ein

Und verweigert dem #Parlament Auskunft über den Einsatz der #Spähsoftware

Sie meint ernsthaft, dass „die Fragen hinsichtlich der Sicherheitsbehörden des Bundes mit polizeilichen und nachrichtendienstlichen Aufgaben auch nicht in eingestufter Form beantwortet werden können.“

Parlamentarische #Demokratie funktioniert anders.
