15581 Article 13
I'm really surprised that nothing has been posted about this here. The EU is discussing and voting on a proposal which would require "online hosting providers" to actively monitor and filter all user-uploaded content. As far as I am aware, this is the biggest threat to the freedom of the internet that has ever existed. Are you lads already aware and just assuming that it won't pass because it's unworkable in practice?

Project Second Referendum, innit. The elites don't want us hearing bad news about the EU.

Austerity is bad when the Tories do it, but fine when the EU enforces it. Controlling the internet is bad when the Tories want to do it, but fine when the EU wants to do it.

Yeah GDPR didn't affect anyone outside the EU so this shouldn't be any different.

Made a post about 13 a while back, drifted into the gutter of .gs

How many votes did we give to make Juncker the president of the EU?

About as many as we gave to make May prime minister of the UK.

Nobody voted to make Juncker the president of the EU, because there's no such role. He was elected as president of the European Parliament by a majority of 422 to 250. If you're going to moan about UNELECTED BRUSSELS BUREAUCRATS, at least have the decency to complain about Sebastian Kurz.

But Antonio Tajani is the President of the European Parliament. Junker is President of the European Commission.

It really inspires faith in the democratic credentials of the institution when even people more informed than the average Joe can't identify the key figures.

I just think it's funny that he tried to smugly correct someone and ended up getting it wrong and corrected himself.

I find it fucking astounding that UK-EU relations are being handled so tightly by the Commission, the members of the EU seemingly being an afterthought, more of a pressure group.

Looks like it has been approved with minor amendments.

I'm very relaxed about it honestly. Give me a week or two after it passes to download a few films and then let the internet sink quietly into the sea. Almost everywhere on the wider internet has become tedious, derivative, and commercialised. Things have crossed a line and now it seems it'll be more fun watching them tear the internet apart than to see where it would develop without outside interference.

The more they play up how it'll fuck over people who made YouTube their job, or how memes might get banned, or how you won't be able to post buzzfeed clickbait to your facebook feed anymore the more I think everything else is a fair price to pay. I know I won't enjoy the process as much as I pretend I do, but the result is an equilibrium position of just ignoring it and not caring. Either things will stay as bad as they are now, or they'll be bad in a different way.

TV 2.0.

I should probably stock up on manuals, books and other stuff. Don't give a toss about films frankly; the few ones I like I had archived some long time ago.

What does this mean for VPNs? Presumably if you want to control all traffic via ISPs, you need to make sure the ISP can actually see your traffic.

This is about content aggregators and large user driven sites, not ISPs in that sense of the word.

No biggy, probably a good thing, it will drive the internet toward a decentralized mesh where memes can flow freely and away from the shitty centralized system that's grown up now.

And yet I'm sure there's a bore somewhere who'll point out that the speeds and patience you had to exercise with dialup to access those first pages of BBS interaction and grainy Scooby Doo porn actually played a big role in how much of an impression the internet made on you back then. Like vinyl nerds or vintage bike enthusiasts, the work you have to put in to every experience is an integral part of it, and gives it the lasting emotionality that instant access 500,000 YT videos all broadcast in 1080p just can't. Time is linear and finite for us mortal creatures, so naturally we seem to attach more importance to things which take up more of our rather fleeting lifespans, like marriage or the raising of our children to maturity.

Oh - hang on - it's me. I'm the bore. Oh.
