Since when does #Google care about #privacy anyway? Its #surveillancecapitalism business model is inherently antithetical to privacy.

ProtonMail. Switzerland. Privacy. Choose two?

I always wondered why crypto companies chose Switzerland except for tax evasion. Certainly not for privacy!

While I agree that most of us should use #Firefox instead of #Chrome, the article's reasoning is flimsy: "Web sites and their advertising partners violate your privacy". I agree, Chrome is slow to present any kind of defense against their violations (as are #Safari, #Internet Explorer, #Edge, and Firefox) and all browsers are even slower to make those defenses the default. Remember when IE started sending "Do Not Track" by default and big name sites said they intended to ignore DNT? (DNT was the industry's "don't regulate us because we're doing something about user privacy" effort.)

NOTE: "direct messages" visibility was changed in #Friendica and #Hubzilla. Now when you send a "private" DM from Mastodon to these two networks, message's visibility in those networks will be limited (yay!)

Please, remember, that #OStatus networks - GNU Social, postActiv, as well as any malicious servers - will still show your DMs from Mastodon as public. 🔓

Mutu: rethinking our radical media.

Notes from a dying media

Even in these difficult times for libertarian radicals, there are numerous examples of local groups waging class struggle. But these struggles are often poorly promoted, relying on already over-stretched groups to publicise them via an array of blogs and social media platforms. In bigger towns and cities, protests and actions fail to attract the numbers they could, partly because people don’t know about them. And there exists an over-reliance on social media to promote our activities, rendering pages redundant (and therefore also the archive of content on them) as social media usage shifts from one platform to another.

All this has taken place in the vacuum created by the collapse of numerous anarchist publications. Arguably however the disappearance which had the biggest material effect on grassroots activism in Britain was the collapse of an online

If you've got a slow or old laptop, you may be able to speed it up by installing the Lubuntu operating system:

https://lubuntu.me

You can follow their official account here:

@lubuntu

Lubuntu is a lighter version of Ubuntu Linux. It can run the same apps as Ubuntu, but has a simpler interface that makes it run extremely quickly even on older/slower computers.

The increased speed is especially noticeable if you use it to replace Windows 👍

Public sentiments towards #privacy were very different a decade ago. When I talked about it people either did not believe me or chose to not worry about it too much. @snowden changed it, but now there's defeatism all around. RMS late to it: https://www.fsf.org/events/rms-20190715-frankfurt

Last week, Mastodon adopted a beginner-friendly default interface 👍

So, maybe this would be a good time to spread the word about Mastodon to a wider audience?

If you're on Facebook/Twitter, you could do a little post about Masto with a link to https://joinmastodon.org ? And a link to a good instance running 2.9 or above?

(Also, I think some people were doing Mastodon posters?)

If people hear about Mastodon from many different sources, they are more likely to try it.

So basically, #linuxjournal just did an 'ad' for a #proprietarysoftware company, #wickr

Just like in the older says before #privateinternetaccess took over

And it's worse because they're promoting a #privacy violator (IMHO)
