If our is only worth that much, then why can't we pay to keep it?

I'd gladly pay more than $70 a year in a heartbeat to use all of the popular platforms with guarantees of 100% privacy.

We need someone to do for privacy what did for music. Charge users and then broker deals to pay part of it to the platforms in exchange to them agreeing to stringent privacy standards on that account, such as collecting zero data, no ads/analytics etc.

Take my money... Please.

@alcinnz same here.

You can find alternative ways to obtain said media (youtube-dl, mpv, decrypting, etc), but that only adds more fire to the ongoing fight.

The actual solution is to boycott those media silos and create independent content that by design and philosophy respects user #freedom and #privacy

That's why I have a #peertube channel, doing my tiny part to contribute.

Privacy-focused, not-for-profit DNS provider Quad9 moved HQ from L.A. to Zürich.

The Swiss government produced findings of law that Quad9 is exempt from both law enforcement and intelligence data-collection and retention requirements, as well as KYC.

Still funded by sponsors an ddonations :

According to the FTC, Zoom lied to users about end-to-end encryption for years. This is one of the obvious perils of nonfree software: you can't verify that the software isn't abusing you, you just have to take their word.

If you go out with your wifi turned on, then chances are anyone nearby can find your home address in seconds.


See in this video by @RTP :

@Blort I just signed up! :D Uploaded (reupload) my first video. Decided this one first as I am about to do a followup video (with a python script I wrote):

I just wanted to send some ♥️ to a handful of the many amazing projects that I benefit from regularly, namely:

@PINE64 For starting the mobile Linux revolution!

@kde and specifically for taking my fave DE mobile!

Linux mobile... shiny!

- Fab email app, mainly by one person (currently fundraising to go full time)

( @apps ) Making the Fediverse a pleasure to use. Thanks for sticking around!

and many others!

Heads up #Fediverse

@k9mail is looking for funding to maintain their popular #android mail app. #k9mail hopes to raise €1,000 p/w on #liberapay to be able to work fulltime on the project.

Would you like to hear a new performance of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy radio scripts? How about if it's accompanied by original illustrations volunteered by many artists, including me? Tickets here:

Moving our business away from Google to @Tutanota

Very very cathartic process and wonderful to have a clean inbox!

What to have for dinner? Time to ask The Head... (cw'd for disturbing/disturbed imagery ) 

Does anyone know what size the @PINE64 screws are? I mean the ones holding it together. I broke my screen, ordered a new one, but I'm having trouble getting the tiny screws out as even my smallest screwdriver is too big. Now I need to buy a new screw driver before I (pardon the pun) "screw up" the screws, trying to get them out...

Over the next few years the world is going to start to realize how bad of an idea it was to let private US tech rise to the level of public utilities while also privatizing accountability and other basic functions to the same companies who's only goal is stock price.

i will go to almost any lengths to read your website OTHER THAN creating a "Free Account"

"Nothing to hide, nothing to fear": the most naive/ disingenuous statement regarding data/#biometrics privacy.

Your data, when private, is *your power*.
Your data in others hands, is their *power over you*.

Just a privacy reminder that instead of using Translate, that you can use

It's not perfect, it's still a private company and isn't open source, but its translations are comparable and privacy-wise it's drastically better than using the Google panopticon.
