The normalisation of surveillance tech in our daily lives creeps up slowly, and it is something we must remain vigilant against — even when it's happening for all the right reasons.

A member of our team wrestled with this recently. Here is their story:

Spent a few hours tonight working on #fediDB!

It's not as pretty, mostly because I've been focusing on the data and utility aspects.

It now has tons of graphs, more data points/stats and the long awaited public release of our AP developer tools!

Can't wait to ship this huge update in the coming days! #fediDB #activityPub

Dear relay operators,

Any relays running Tor version 0.3.5 will be rejected from the Tor network next week. Please upgrade your relay ASAP.

If you need any help, please feel free to ask on the Tor Forum:

Thank you for your help powering Tor.

New post: :kali_linux_r: 'Hack the Box 000: Introduction'. This is part of a new series of HTB walkthroughs. Happy hacking!

OK apparently they aren't using facial recognition or storing the images. 🤔 OK so what we're the cameras trained on? As someone who's been misaged in my 30s, I'll just stick to the check out. But just pay your staff. Have more staff. Please don't usher in more cameras.

I recently decided to go all-in on trying to have a "writing career" without giving in to monopolistic corporations like Amazon and Google.

I'm selling my fiction directly to fans, Patreon-style, instead of putting myself thru the endless stress of subbing to magazines.

Check it out!

I'm using open-source software, no cookies or trackers. The only "middleman" is the credit card processor (stripe).

I'm really proud of myself.

Busy week for but at least we can show off new stuff!

📣 As of today, there's a Keyoxide Android app 🎉

It's a client much like the website (so no key editing just yet…) and will allow you to verify identities in pretty much the same way: copy-paste a fingerprint or email address and voilà!

And soon supporting QR code scanning for easier input!

Also in the process of putting on :fdroid:!

Big 👏👏👏 for our very own @Seferi who developed it!
