The next time you see somebody trying to revive the long-discredited claims that I was some kind of foreign agent because they don't like what I represent, show them this clip of the NSA's Deputy Director—the man who actually ran that investigation—trash-canning it.

It’s so reflective of how shitty is our discourse that political officials in both parties and media stars feel comfortable asserting evidence-free and false accusations about @Snowden — he works for China/Russia, etc. — that even a top NSA official has renounced.

Could someone give me an invitation code for riseup mail ?

users, if you didn't know, now you do! The UI has finally been completely modernized about a month ago, but for some reason doesn't tell you about this update. Search for K-9, go to Versions and manually select the latest one.

I'm seriously considering getting rid of phone contracts/sim card. Preaching about privacy but using the cell network on a daily basis feels hypocritical.

To begin with, I turned off mobile data on my phone for the last 7 days. There's still plenty of stuff to do while traveling offline like consuming RSS, podcasts, videocasts, ebooks, ... I'm missing looking things up online thou. Offline messaging actually feels way less stressful to me.
