Just spotted this article on the BBC news site
The committee cited here is going to be drafting the UK Online safety bill
This got me thinking, should we, as the fediverse (or creators of) try to submit evidence or try and be involved with this. After all, this bill is going to affect everyone but, while mostly aimed at big tech, we may have ideas.
A lot of the ‘experts’ involved with this are going to be from bigger tech companies (probably including Microsoft) so unless we have some input it will be all about them, and less about us as people who care about freedoms, open source / free software, privacy and platforms that give users more control.
Other experts who have never heard of the fediverse, or may have a inaccurate idea as to who / what we are could end up causing more problems.
I am sure between the people here, and elsewhere on fedi, we could come up with some ideas to submit, and perhaps at least have some say in what goes on here.
Just a thought
