O European Data Protection Board anunciou uma acção conjunta com as autoridade de protecção de dados alemãs de forma a verificar o cumprimento do Acórdão Schrems II.
Por cá, ataca-se a CNPD quando faz o mesmo (e muitas vezes tarde).

I had set myself to do daily Shoebot sketches more than a month ago, and silently lost the pace a few days into it. I'm still bummed that I didn't make it, but there was a decent reason.

I've been rather active around covid contact tracing apps, doing media outreach and general activism as part of the PT digital rights group (@d3). After months of hard work (and confirmation of failure scenarios), we got a grant from a European NGO to write a report about the portuguese corona tracing app experiment.

So I switched my evenings from Shoebot dabbling to investigative mode, sourcing hundreds of news to establish a timeline, gathering data and making charts. The report was delivered but we're energised enough to adapt it into a format aimed at a Portuguese audience -- lawmakers, media and concerned citizens.

As a way to kind of redeem myself from setting Shoebot aside, I'm using it to make the visualizations for the report. And now I have loads of plans to build a plugin for Shoebot to provide easy ways to visualise datasets -- the Python coding style is bliss for me, compared to other specialised frameworks like Bokeh or D3 (which I love and use for more demanding contexts).

This is a work-in-progress chart, made for analysis and not (yet) aesthetics, but I'm pretty excited with how it's turning out. A research report commissioned by reveals the extent of unlawful mass biometric #surveillance practices and technologies in Germany, the Netherlands and Poland.

What would it be like to go about our daily lives with a paper bag on our head, just because we want to protect our faces from creepy facial recognition technologies?
