The only way: education, for anyone and free for all. There's no democracy without education.
Learning to people to think by themselves, how to detect fake news, not to rely on one source of information, it's the only solution, no technical mean nor laws won't be able to do that in a reliable manner.
"I'm not sure anonymity and democracy are completely compatible."
I disagree, 'Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority'.
Chinese space program is impressive, and should deserve more publicity, even if China was designed as the new Nemesis by the orange Klown.
The search for He-3 reminds me of 'Odyssey 2' when the Chinese spaceship lands on Europa to find water for its propulsion system... Arthur C. Clark was really a visionary man
UK spies: You know how we said bulk device hacking would be used sparingly? Well, things have 'evolved'...
FYI: NASA has sent a snatch-and-grab spacecraft to an asteroid to seize some rock and send it back to Earth
HP's Neon Dion says if anything goes wrong, it's totally Intel's fault: CPU shortage may hit PC maker's financials
GCHQ pushes for 'virtual crocodile clips' on chat apps – the ability to silently slip into private encrypted comms
Oh, I wish it could be Black Friday every day-aayyy, when the wallets start jingling but it's still a week till we're paiii-iid
Trump lies, knows he lies and doesn't give a fuck about it. He knows that the people who believe him already live in an alternate reality. If he claimed there's an ongoing attack from Moon inhabitants, the Trumpists would unload their AR-15 shooting at the Moon.
What matters to him is being acclaimed by some, even if it means being considered idiotic and unreliable by most. That guy is like a 5-year old in need of constant attention, he will do anything to get the spotlight.
If newspapers were stopping talking about him for a week, he would declare war to China just to be in the headlines again.
Microsoft menaced with GDPR mega-fines in Europe for 'large scale and covert' gathering of people's info via Office
In a statement, a Microsoft spokesperson told us: "We are committed to our customers’ privacy, putting them in control of their data and ensuring that Office ProPlus and other Microsoft products and services comply with GDPR and other applicable laws.
I wonder how the people working in PR are able to look at them in a mirror without puking? Ablation of moral conscience probably helps.

Facebook's CEO on his latest almighty Zuck-up: OK, we did try to smear critics, but I was too out-of-the-loop to know

Re: "And I also have a bridge to sell you..."
never forget Hitler was elected
Technically, he wasn't. His party was the first one in number of elected members but didn't had the majority (33% only). Without the support of the conservatives and the refusal of the Communists to join with the Socialists, he wouldn't have been chosen as Chancelor by the German President.
This is not limited to IT stuff only. I had for decades a towel holder meant to be placed on a specific form of heater. For decades I had never the use, all the flats I was in had incompatible heaters. I threw it away. A few months later, I moved to a house were it would have been useful :doh:
My mom uses to say that "objects are mean" - She's absolutely right.
