@privacylab @mozilla Hey Mozilla, here's my entry:

I had a recent invasive experience with a browser called Firefox. The default search engine was Google, a surveillance capitalist. So I was being tracked every time I wrote into the address bar. (Apparently, the browser maker receives billions from Google.) Then I saw that third-party cookies were on by default and tracking protection was off. Finally, I realised I'd been sharing data and was enrolled in "studies" with the browser maker.

Monty did it again: Create awesome video material explaining theoretical stuff behind digital media. Makes me love even more. ❤️

Backing up my (32GB SD-card) manually is a major hassle. It's one of the last steps making it not "ready" for the masses. 😒

All it costs to fulfill the average person's needs for digital services is a $5 per month VPS instance. It's even cheaper if you buy a single board computer and host your services at home.

We've been letting companies steal our personal data and sell it to the highest bidder and destroying democracy in the process all to save what? A coffee a month?

This is one of the worst deals in history.

Free Software needs many things, such as a focus on diversity, a more deliberate way to fund itself without depending on corporatism, and increased interest in other human factors like accessibility.

I believe that coops can be helpful to deliver improvements on those fronts.

If you know about and you should have a look at

Not only because it is making "usable", but because builds on top of it and turns the broadest network possible (YES E-MAIL !!!) into your favorite chat application.

Very promising.
