Who Has Your Back Electronic Frontier Foundation short (20150619)

Who are you gonna call? WordPress!

Thanks to a post by Luca Sartoni on his Facebook stream, I got to know the result of this Electronic Frontier Foundation‘s research on the topic:

Who Has Your Back? 2014: When Copyright and Trademark Bullies Threaten Free Speech

This is the premise:

When somebody wants to silence speech, they often use the quickest method available. When the speech is hosted on a major online platform, that method is usually a copyright or trademark complaint. For many years, EFF has worked with people whose lawful speech has been unfairly targeted by these sorts of complaints. We’ve observed that some approaches tend to work better than others in preventing that sort of deliberate abuse, as well as the casual censorship that comes from haphazard and dragnet approaches to policing online infringement.

Read carefully the rest of EFF post & report!

ciao Wilson, benvenuto Sela

After no more than fifteen days I’m giving a farewell to the Wilson theme and changed again the theme of this weblog. Wilson had a couple of major issues in scaling and some spaces in the information text of each post. And it was probably a bit too dark for my tastes.

So here’s in action Sela, another free post-formats, responsive theme here on WordPress.com … the silence in these days is due to my ongoing quest to clean all the mess of the Uncategorized category of this blog (which I remembers comes from the defunct Posterous.com import).

Aside

entering Wilson

WordPress.com has published a bunch of new and interesting themes to their free offer. I choose Wilson to shake things up here… and see if putting in evidence (again) the tags, your’s most recent comments and the interesting things I bookmark on Pinboard in the site’s sidebar I can spark something new. Take this as a little experiment, and as an opportunity to tell me what’s your take on sidebar and content’s visibility and reachability over a blog like mine, with nearly 10 years of content!
