I'm just gonna apologize for this in advance. And maybe never use a #vpn again.
I, like probably many others have completely missed this 🤔
Ran into this by accident https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Country_specific_consent_requirements legit surprised to read that in the Netherlands you'll generally not need permission to take someone their picture and publish it 🤔
Extremely happy to live in a country where you even need consent for taking a picture though 😂
Git is planning to switch to SHA-256 soon. This is all great news, but the best thing is the command to convert an existing repo to the new hash. It reads like a shitpost and gets better with each argument:
git convert-repo --to-hash=sha-256 --frobnicate-blobs --climb-subtrees --liability-waiver=none --use-shovels --carbon-offsets

Remember this meme? Turns out the person behind that meme is an archivist at a Library and he wasn't fully happy with his image being used with what was essentially racial slurs.

Funny enough this is very clear about what my dumb Russian in Netherlands living friend once thought/joked about. She was joking how she could do GDPR requests because she lives in Netherlands while my Swiss girlfriend couldn't because she doesn't live in EU. She didn't get when I laughed directly into her face. Something about stricter privacy laws in Switzerland forever...
TIL, Clearview optout (only available when in a GDPR area or California...) requires you to upload a picture... Something tells me you end up in a dataset labeled as "Doesn't want to be found with this tech".... This is just bad https://clearview.ai/privacy/requests
