Thought it might be cool to have a thread on this as there are loads of developments and decisions being made right now that will shape the future of the internet.
E.g. this proposed EU directive which would require platforms to pre-filter all user-generated content and use automated decision making to block publication of content deemed (by the censorship machine) to infringe copyright.
this is a huge huge risk to freedom of expression and privacy and similar measures have already been ruled to violate human rights. rights groups, the UN rapporteur on freedom of expression, IP experts etc. have all voiced serious concerns about it.
MEPs are voting on this next week. worrying how little there has been about this.
I have written a template letter if anyone wants to write to their MEP. PM me.
