It's not written right but I did a minimal #demo that showed off how to do such a thing on top of #ActivityPub https://gitlab.com/spritely/golem/blob/master/README.org

It was hacky, we need a "generic, public tahoe-like thing"; https://openengiadina.net/papers/eris.html
might be the right option but yet to be seen

Interesting new search engine I learned about: Okeano.

"We spend 80% of our profit to purchase as many river interceptors we can and deploy them to polluting rivers around the world."

"...we don't know who you are and it's impossible to tie your searches to you."

"Currently we support domain blocklisting and !waves (similar to DDG bangs)." - https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=25715921

Learned of another self-hostable, privacy-focused front end similar to Teddit called Libreddit.

https://libredd.it

Source code: https://github.com/spikecodes/libreddit

Differences as of now are:
- Libreddit mirrors Reddit’s redesign while Teddit mirrors the old.
- Libreddit is written in Rust while Teddit is in Node.js.

Mozilla's new proposal encourages platforms to "Turn on by default the tools to amplify factual voices over disinformation.", through opaque and black-box AI systems.

Seeing as Mozilla's mission is to "ensure the internet remains a public resource that is open and accessible to all.", doesn't that seem a little backwards?

I think we can all say Mozilla has become a political organisation, instead of focusing on what their users want: a browser.

People are now uninstalling Firefox in protest, and I don't blame them.

Consider replacing Firefox with Ungoogled Chromium and Bromite. Mozilla may turn thr technology outlined in their blog post on people using Firefox, and I won't stand for it.

I think we have to say 'Enough is enough,' when this 'privacy-focused' browser includes 3 closed-source tracking SDK's by default. If you've enabled Telemetry to support Mozilla, you're also supporting Google Firebase Analytics, Adjust and Leanplum.

After opening an issue (https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/12809) about this, and receiving major support from the community, Mozilla essentially stated that these tracking SDK's will not be removed from their browser.

If you're using Firefox: you don't have to stand for this. Mozilla are making a mockery of privacy advocates who recommend this 'grassroots pro-privacy' browser.

Playing right into Google's hands. Now I can see why people use #Bromite and #Chromium.

Here's a video I found about the Session messenger.

For those of you who don't know, Session is similar to what Signal does and is end-to-end encrypted, but it doesn't require you to share your phone number. Plus, it uses a TOR-like decentralized network for the messages, so not even metadata is readable by anyone else.

Anonymously Send Messages With Session:

Phosh Overview

"phosh is graphical shell for mobile, touch based devices like smart phones. It’s the default graphical shell on Purism’s Librem 5 (and that’s where it came to life) but projects like Postmarket OS, Mobian and Debian have picked it up putting it into use on other devices as well and contributing patches."

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #hardware, #linux, #linux-fedora, #privacy, #software, and #technology.

I'm not quite sure what to think of this platform, anyone got some tips to start?
 
Do you work for a web development company?

- Does your "product owner" consider #privacy to be important?
- Do they feel there are no alternatives to #Google and other big #tech?

If not, are they the right person for the job?

I'm very cynical about #Google and #privacy, but they always find a new low.

I was helping someone set up wifi on a new #android 10 phone. I happened to look at the settings, and then "advanced" section hidden away under that.

I found that by default, Android avoids using your router/ISP's DNS for every online connection your phone makes.

They use 8.8.8.8 instead (Google) without asking.

This lets them know *every* connection your phone makes, from where, to who and when.

"Briar is a messaging app


designed for activists, journalists, and anyone else who needs a safe, easy and robust way to communicate. Unlike traditional messaging apps, Briar doesn't rely on a central server - messages are synchronized directly between the users' devices. If the internet's down, Briar can sync via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, keeping the information flowing in a crisis. If the internet's up, Briar can sync via the Tor network, protecting users and their relationships from surveillance."

Assuming one's phone is secure (data and voice cannot be collected before Briar encrypts them), this app could be help users who want privacy. Does anyone here have experience using this? h/t to @rosenfeld@diasp.org

Explosive Document Reveals Facebook Gave Google Exclusive Access to Encrypted WhatsApp Messages | The Mac Observer

A document [PDF]from the Texas Attorney General as part of its antitrust investigation reveals that shortly after Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2015, it gave Google exclusive access to millions of WhatsApp messages, photos, videos, and audio files that were supposedly end-to-end encrypted at the time. If they were truly end-to-end encrypted, this sort of access would not be possible.
