International coalition calls for action against surveillance-based advertising

Interesting article, this fightback has now started, there is hopefully no going back and we will see an end to all this tracking, advertising and other unwanted nonsense.

**Groups in Europe and U.S. ask for action to end practices that threaten citizens’ rights. **

` Every day, consumers are exposed to extensive commercial surveillance online. This leads to manipulation, fraud, discrimination and privacy violations. Information about what we like, our purchases, mental and physical health, sexual orientation, location and political views are collected, combined and used under the guise of targeting advertising. You can read the full article at [1]. I have also included a link to a Discourse thread as well as a link to the Data Detox kit.

LibreOffice Learning Resources

As digital skills are an essential part of everyday life. I have created, a new blog, to host information to help people out tasks using LibreOffice.

So far this is blog has covered just the Writer component. This may be extended later, as I have some videos for the Calc Spreadsheet.

The new blog can be found here.

Collaboration with Overleaf

I attended the Overleaf Effective Collaboration webinar on Wednesday 20th May. This proved, once again to be very informative, useful and complements the other webinars nicely.

This webinar, specifically covered the features available to the different users of the system, the main difference with the free accounts includes the number of user who can collaborate and version history tracking.

I recently came across an excellent Overleaf curated article / report from 2017 on The Connected Culture of Collaboration Report

The document (pdf) can be downloaded free from the website and there is a citation guide too, if this is needed for your own articles or papers.

The webinar will be available on demand in due course.
