@loke > Back in the 80's the people who understood technology and the people who used technology was roughly the same set. This led to a misbelief that using technology made you understand it.
In the 80's there were efforts to teach people how technology worked in order to empower them to use it well. It was fairly common for someone to start using computers for a very practical end, and to then start learning how they actually worked, because the systems were set up to facilitate that.
What we have today is cynically constructed to be impenetrable. Today's computers and today's electronics are designed to keep the user out, so it's no wonder that only a tiny, extremely motivated subset understand things. That's by design, but it's not how things need to work.
VPN vs Tor Clearnet vs Tor Hidden Service: Which ones aren't able to encrypt data from end point? How does each work. I illustrat a whiteboard to help explain. You might be surprised what you find out. Most VPN providers neglect to mention one important fact.

Bunch of hypocrites
I've been trying out #Briar messenger, in the last few days. It's a very impressive software. Love the concept!
But it's kinda lonely 😅, can't find many people using it.
If anyone is using Briar, lets add each other and test it out!
