Does anyone else find it outrageous that U.N. agencies keep removing RSS feeds for their updates while prominently featuring Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Youtube accounts on their websites? Our taxes fund these entities. We deserve open access to the content they produce.

@nw I do. Aside, I was rather disturbed to discover #Cloudflare are [blacklisting] core language HTTP libraries, which (my) RSS software relies on too.

@nw

Outrageous, yes. Surprising, not one bit.

If you've been following the #EU's #DigitalServicesAct shenanigans you will know that the #EU is entering into a Faustian pact with #GAFAM, where they are left to consolidate their cartel position in exchange for carrying out policing and censorship on behalf of the #EU (that's right, the EU Commission have given themselves powers that not even the imposed #Lisbon treaty contemplated).

Liberal democracy is dead. 😐

@nw I'm listening to the podcast version of a show on Swedish radio (it's about the Swedish language, and it's a way for me to have some connection to Sweden even if I don't live there at the moment).

Anyway, they use facebook group for the interaction with their listeners. Especially for a show on public radio, that should be illegal.

@nw That also goes for the general licensing policy of their content. It should all be published open access and be reusable free of charge. unmultimedia.org/avlibrary/con

@nw Indeed. Many news sites seem to have dropped RSS feeds. RSS is a great way to keep tabs on the world but now we're forced to subscribe to the commercial channels.
