- Operational state of engine
- Driving & parking history
- Data on speed, acceleration & deceleration
- Number of times ABS has been activated
- When airbags are deactivated
- Name, first name & email of owner
- Other electric vehicles in vicinity
- Geolocation

Fancy a custom #Lagrange UI theme? 😎

The longer you keep your phone the more lightly it would have tread the earth, so think twice when you want to buy a new phone. Do you really need a new phone? The truth is, the most #sustainable phone is the one you already own – so make it last. 🌍 📱

Great remark by @cj on #SocialHub wrt #ActivityPub vs. #blockchain based #decentralization:

> Apps may demand real-time “global state”, and this is the key tragedy of Blockchain-like decentralized thinking. Trying to have decentralization but also demand global consistency.
