Firefox is now more important, isolated and vulnerable. Some suggested ways we can support it:
• Set it as your default browser. And if you're back home with family over Christmas, suggest/set as their default too.
• When you hear web devs say "can't everyone just use Chrome", please challenge it.
• Contribute to Mozilla-led projects, e.g. MDN Docs:
• Donate to Mozilla if you can:

RT One of the ways #AABill gets access to systems is by commandeering employees of companies to write backdoors. But they’re not even allowed to tell their employer, or face jail time.

I went through the mechanics of this, and realised how out of touch Canberra is...

While Tutanota is not affected by this, we are deeply saddened that the #aabill passed today in Australia. At Tutanota we strongly oppose any attempt of backdooring encryption, and for a good reason:

airing it’s dirty laundry for everyone to see by conspicuously showing it cares fuck all about it’s citizens right to - oh but nah, it’s such a cool country to live in, right? It can’t be that bad. Well yeah, it is. They’re in bed with the rest of them sucking America’s dick and swallowing too. Nothing cool about Australian “democracy”.

So there was a big protest today by schoolkids who blew off school and marched in the streets over government inaction on climate change.

The Prime Minister has said they should be less activist and focus on their schooling instead.

I just saw this sign. These kids are great.

Grandpa? Tell me about the cyberwars!

So there I was... Hunkered down behind the firewall trenches under a barrage of TCP scans!

Online decluttering, de-googling, de-facebooking etc is intense and time consuming. I’m stuck in that middle phase where everything is messy and all over the place migrating from different platforms and trying to consolidate and take my information with me. 😅 currently I have 6 email addresses as an example. What a mess! Why do I have that many email addresses?! 😩 It’ll all be worth it in the end though. Looking forward to getting things under control once and for all!
