The linked article is the intro message from her. I copied a part of it here:

Why I’m Joining Mozilla as Executive Director

Delight -- absolute delight -- is what I felt when my parents brought home a Compaq Deskpro 386 for us to play with. It was love at first sight, thanks to games like Reader Rabbit, but I fell especially hard once we had a machine connected to the Internet. The unparalleled joy that comes from making things with and for other people was intoxicating. I can’t tell you how many hours were spent building Geocities websites for friends, poring over message boards, writing X-Files fan fiction, exchanging inside jokes and song lyrics on AIM and ICQ chats with friends and far-flung cousins across the world.

Actually, I could tell you. In detail. But it would be embarrassing.

Years later I would learn that the ability to share, connect, and create is rooted in how the Internet works differently than the media preceding it. The Internet speaks standards and protocols. It links instead of copying. Its nature is open. You don’t need permission to make something on the Internet. That freedom holds enormous potential: At its best, it helps us explore history we didn’t know, build movements to better the future, or make a meme to brighten someone’s day. At its best, the Internet lets us see each other.

That magic -- this power -- is revolutionary. Protecting it, celebrating it, and expanding it is why I’m so excited to join the Mozilla Foundation as its executive director.

I started my career as a media lawyer to protect those who made things that helped us see one another, and the truth about our shared world. Almost fifteen years ago, I co-founded and built a media law clinic to train others to do the same. After a stint at a law firm, I joined BuzzFeed as its first newsroom lawyer, which felt sort of like being a lawyer for the silliest and most serious parts of the internet all at the same time. In other words, I was a lawyer for the Internet at its best.

I am not naive about the Internet at its worst. From the Edward Snowden disclosures to a quick trip to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, much of my career has confronted issues of surveillance -- including of my own religious community. I watched as consumers became more concerned about surveillance and other harms online, and so we built an accountability journalism outlet, The Markup, to serve those needs. The Markup’s mission is to help people challenge technology to serve the public good, which intentionally centers human agency. So we didn’t just write articles: Our team imagined and made things people used to make informed choices. Blacklight, for example, empowers people to use the Web how they want, by helping them see the otherwise invisible set of tracking tools, watching them as they browse.

Are the messages in her outbox? What some scammers do is they make a new account with the same name and profile picture, to then send messages that look like they're from a friend.

I remember reading about an Facebook phishing thing going around, but that involved getting the password and then spamming out messages. She could try and remember if she got any weird links that she logged in with. Sometimes the scammer sends the harmful link to the followers, so the handbag site might be the problem link

Usually because resources are limited, both financial and time, so people make do with what they can.

As projects grow, and as the FOSS alternatives improve, projects can switch over.

I'd love to have tags on apps. So many apps have a simple minimalistic name on the app, which is impossible to remember. I make do by renaming the app with terms I might search by.

ex. "Authenticator Microsoft", or "Vancollect City Garbage Trash Recycling"

Others are covering the details of the article, I took a look at the source. It only started up last year:

Canadian Affairs was founded by Lauren Heuser in 2023. You can read why Lauren founded a publication for families and professionals in her founding essay.

Canadian Affairs is independent and nonpartisan. It is wholly owned by Lauren and has no outside investors. It is a Qualified Canadian Journalism Organization.

So it looks like this study was questionable for a number of reasons

There may be better studies that weren't mentioned in the link

Ah it's different from what I originally assumed

https://scholar.smu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=4072&context=smulr

(See page 509)

  • knowledge isn't necessary, just assumptions

  • "need not be committed while in the heat of passion"

  • "The statute also uses the phrase "before the parties ... have separated." This has been interpreted to mean only that the parties are still in each other's company, not that they are still united in the act of copulation"

  • "while the husband may justifiably kill his wife's paramour," he may not [...] inflict serious bodily injury (mutulation) upon the paramour without an intent to kill"

  • "Further, the wife is not justified in taking the life of her husband's mistress"

Take a skim through the link for full details (especially the breaking changes), but I have included some parts that I thought were important:

This release has been over two years in the making, so we're really glad to finally get it out to you. The long cycle does mean quite an extensive changelog however, with well over 1100 pull requests merged into our master branch since 10.8.0 first dropped back in 2022.

General

  • We now support "trickplay" a.k.a. live video scrubbing. When scrubbing through a video with this enabled, you will be able to see a live preview of the video at that timestamp. Note that this requires explicit client support, which may require some time to become available depending on your client.

  • [...]

  • We now support AVIF and WEBP images for Pictures libraries.

  • Tags are now accounted for during searches, allowing one to search by tag.

  • We now support multiple simultaneous subtitle tracks (maximum of two, a primary and secondary) in the web player.

  • We've revamped the administrative dashboard UI to help improve usability and ease of finding options.

API & Security

  • All API endpoints now return proper return codes, ensuring that API endpoint results can be reliably interpreted without additional parsing.

  • Parental ratings are significantly improved, with better enforcement, inheritable ratings, and more.

  • LiveTV and Collection permissions are now discrete and configurable per-user.

  • The EasyPassword (PIN) feature has been removed as this was a big security risk especially for administrator accounts; QuickConnect login is still supported however.

  • User permission handling has been unified and numerous bugs fixed, ensuring a more secure server from untrusted users.

Core Server & Networking

  • [...]
  • The server now supports in-process restarting, and removes the old hacky restart.sh method. This should make things like installing plugins much more robust and ensure a consistent restart experience regardless of platform or install method.
  • [...]
  • The backend SQLite database now supports connection pooling, which should improve performance for database operations.
  • [...]

Also sections on Packaging, Transcoding & FFmpeg improvements/support, Scanning, Library & Playlist Management, and Casting


The Next Version

With our continuous integrations improvements outlined previously, we're quite confident that this will be our last "very long" release cycle. Our plan is for the next major version (10.10.0) to be released at most 6 months from now, some time in October. We hope this increased cadence will help alleviate the problems with large releases such as a very long time-to-stable for new features, translations, etc. and help lower the number of major bugs at each major release, streamlining the upgrade process. But this needs everyone's help. Back in October 2023, we made a call for developers, and we've gotten a lot of interest, but this is not a one-and-done event. We need contributions now more than ever, especially around the web frontend to help implement our planned design changes. If this interests you, please reach out and we can help get you set up.

Students and academics at the University of Alberta reacted with outrage on Saturday after Edmonton police dismantled a pro-Palestinian encampment on campus, describing the operation as violent and contesting assertions that demonstrators were breaking the law.

Organizers said police fired tear gas and wielded batons and bicycles against students at the university’s north campus quad shortly after arriving at 4:30 a.m., resulting in one hospitalization.

Especially the new pinned posts, it looks like they might be new Reddit only. I guess we'll have to wait and try it once a few subs implement it

My thoughts:

A handful of these changes are things that Lemmy currently allows, or has Github issues for in the queue. Others (mainly moderation ones), are things that would be nice to have here as well. The temporary traffic spike feature could do wonders here with the spam waves

Search engine indexing, rather than search inside Lemmy/threadiverse platforms

That way people come across the good content when searching for things
