New York judge throws a Monsanto vs. Avaaz 168-page fear mongering subpoena out of court
Great news! A New York judge has practically thrown out of court a 168-page Monsanto vs. Avaaz subpoena and gave a good lecture to the Monsanto side about freedom of expression and freedom of civic activism.

I browsed the counter-document, prepared by a top notch lawyer in cooperation with Avaaz that partially has been paid with my monthly donation which I decided to commit to when I heard of the 168-page subpoena demanding gross and compromising handing over of information about the activities and the activists of Avaaz against glyphosate, a cancer causing herbicide marketed by Monsanto.

Should the subpoena have passed Avaaz would have been required to hand over compromising information about their activists and activities against the use of glyphosate.

Monsanto’s subpoena was clearly intended to cause chill effects and fear in excellent civil activist organizations like Avaaz to not to interfere with these big-buck pigs and their shady dealings.

Big up to Avaaz for our victory!

Here is the finely prepared counter-document to the 168-page subpoena, the intention of which was to cause fear and chill.

Installed a wildcard certificate for *.consumium.org
Information to users of https://friendica.consumium.org: Today I installed a wildcard cert *.consumium.org using acme.sh and DNS API to authenticate. The certificate is automatically renewed without any downtime now as webroot is not needed to renew.

Here is a blog post on my blog about how to acquire and install a wildcard certificate from LetsEncrypt.org with acme.sh and DNS API as authentication method.

Apotheker Juboxi's Wall of Random Answers and more DDoS on an ISP of other ISPs yesterday
So from news I hear of a DDoS attack on some ISP that is an ISP for other ISPs yesterday. On YLE the footage they run showed unlocaked cabinets… damn, it seemed to me that the cabinets without locable doors at all and CAT6 flowing all over the place. Expect headlines
“Internet attacks itself. Popcorn prices rise.”

Hmm.. "scary" clowns trolling clueless reporters to get the wake up facts. Reporters' parents reportedly upset and complaining.
Remember kids.. any amount of make-up, rubber or plastic usually nothing to get scared of. If the clown is wearing only pixels it _is_ scary because those are. #scaryclown

Wednesday 2016-09-07 status report
* DNS broke. Apparently at the hosting guys. Only develop.consumerium.org was affected. Moved DNS overnight to Gandi.net in France and this morning everything was back up.
* Diaspora* is down but there is a working theory on how to get it up. Apparently the new style of comms via unix-sockets instead of TCP/IP:3000 isn't working for some reason. Gonna change the /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/diaspora and the /var/www/diaspora/config/diaspora.yml to use the old style.

#Trans #social #media #poll calling #podizens, #hubizens, #friendica #friends, #gnusocialists.
Others than just *.consumium.org freedomists are also invited to participate. I will tally both results within their group. “Locals” and “Rest of federated free social media” should do it.

1. What would you like to prioritize more and what less in the stuff to get working in the free social media scene in larger or in Consumium free social media?
2. What additional free software / open standards / open data people would like to see Consumium services (ja ist me, basically) try to bring up? See https://github.com/Kickball/awesome-selfhosted/blob/master/README.md#analytics for ideas.

DNS change onto the new machine is now in propagation. Expected outage: less than one hour. Database will be transferred when DNS has moved to point to new machine and therefore the old database cannot be accessed by the users anymore.
