"Recently, when I logged into the Mastodon instance sunbeam.city—a “Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance”—I found a photo of someone’s blooming spider plant next to a conversation about the consequences of ethical transparency in hierarchical systems. It struck me as the quintessential early-Internet experience."
That's a brutal but painfully accurate picture by @aral here. Cheers to that!
We've got big news.
After months of work, Tor Browser is now stable on Android.
Tor Browser 8.5 brings the highest degree of privacy and censorship-circumvention available to Android users. https://blog.torproject.org/new-release-tor-browser-85
The Android app #Fedilab allows multiple accounts on multiple Fediverse services (incl. Mastodon, Friendica, PeerTube, Pleroma and GNU Social).
It's now charging for its Google Play version while keeping the F-Droid version free of charge, to encourage people off Google Play.
The Play version has a new address:
The F-Droid version remains at its current address:

Imagine you meet a stranger. You talk to them, they might be pleasant or not.
Imagine you meet a corporation. You interact with their products, every single one of them will try to keep hidden clauses from you, if they are a website they will track you in more ways than you can imagine. They always see you as the value that they can extract from you, not as a person. They are ruthless, if the law permits they take your house, your food and your kidneys.
Corporations are nothing like people.
In case you missed it, there's a privacy-friendly alternative to Google Play.
It's called F-Droid and only includes free open apps that don't track you:
The installation process is slightly complicated, but once it's been installed it's extremely easy to use.

"Today, our diplomatic office in Washington was taken and invaded by an unprecedented police deployment. They fail their obligations of the Vienna Convention and violate the Human Rights of the activists who have protected our Embassy with our authorization." https://twitter.com/jaarreaza/status/1129040249806569474
California: 94 percent of Californians think we should be able to take companies that violate their privacy to court. SB 561 would let us do that. Call your senators, speak up for your privacy rights, and tell them to do the same. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/05/california-tell-your-legislators-stand-your-privacy
“The government tried to sell our lands to the oil companies without our permission. Our rainforest is our life. We decide what happens in our lands. We will never sell our rainforest to the oil companies. Today, the courts recognized that the Waorani people, and all indigenous peoples have rights over our territories that must be respected. The government’s interests in oil is not more valuable than our rights, our forests, our lives.”
Free thinking, opensource loving humanist...at least that's my better self:)
