@aral One question. No offense. Just want to understand your thoughts.
You always complain about FLOSS conferences and stuff being funded by Google, Facebook etc. I see this with pain, too. You are using Let's Encrypt for your website, which is / was funded by Google. Where do you draw the line between acceptable or not?
@marco I will happily use their stuff if it doesn’t come with strings attached. What I won’t do is legitimise them. A privacy conference sponsored by Google legitimises Google on privacy just as a conference on healthy living sponsored by Philip Morris would legitimise them or a conference on environmentalism sponsored by ExxonMobil would legitimise them. I draw the line at not taking money from and legitimising surveillance capitalists.
