„Der Überwachungskapitalismus ist der Puppenspieler, der uns durch das Medium des allgegenwärtigen digitalen Apparates seinen Willen aufzwingt. … die wahrnehmungsfähige, rechnergestützte und vernetzte Marionette, die das menschliche Verhalten rendert, überwacht, berechnet und modifiziert.“

Love is

Dear Keepass listen to my rhymes,
you let me leave so many times
- and always I came back.

'cause saving passwords in a cloud
has filled my heart and mind with doubt
and taken me aback:

For Dashlane, True Key, 1Password
Lastpass and Zoho Vault
- who all appeal to lazy nerds -
do have a common fault:

Their baskets filled to the brim,
in them, a hundred thousand eggs
all waiting for the NSL
or other villain's hacks.

Fazit nach einer Woche :

Gutes Firewall-Konzept, aktuelle Repositories, ein unbelecktes Gnome.

Ubuntu vermisse ich nicht.

“I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.”

― Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Adblocking isn't unethical. Covering your website in trackers, spying on users, and compromising their security to make a buck is.

"We value your privacy..."

“I’m against surveillance capitalism but Google’s service is listed first on my app because it is so popular” is the “I’m against the tobacco industry but I offer anyone coming into my home a cigarette because smoking’s so popular” of tech.

If you offer people easy access to cigarettes without so much as a warning about the risks, you might want to reconsider whether you really are against Big Tobacco or whether you’re doing their bidding.

I've discovered that the #fediverse is easily accessible from a country [anon] which is extremely restrictive towards social media...

@torproject , maybe the #fediverse can help people looking for private tor bridges using a hashtag? #getbridges maybe?

Then people who have access to Gmail etc can get the bridge list on behalf of others and DM the list to them... Not perfect, but better than nothing. #freespeech #freeinternet #getbridges
