This is a neat solution for simple users who don't want to think too much while maintaining their privacy.

Personally I use a combination of transfer.sh, my own personal web server and RetroShare for P2P file transfers between friends.

Request from a reader:

Are there good free open alternatives to Google's #recaptcha?

It is very difficult to avoid recaptchas as so many sites seem to rely on them. It would be nice to have alternatives people could suggest to websites.

American tech companies are quietly working with the FBI on "solutions" to end-to-end encryption, @gizmodo reports. gizmodo.com/silicon-valley-and There is no such thing as an encryption backdoor that only lets in the good guys. protonmail.com/blog/encryption

If you, like me, would like to hear an interventionist voice at the US democratic debates, please donate to 's campaign: youtube.com/watch?v=t83ZuqsQJz . She needs at least 65 000 individual donors, even a dollar is enough!

Hi everyone, my name is Akira, I'm a really young app with big dreams and a few more months before starting to walk alone.
I'm extremely excited to be here and I'm looking forward to working with you every day and design awesome stuff!

Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!

@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.

The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.

There's an open issue for it here:

github.com/GetTogetherComm/Get

There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.

Can you help?

(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance :blobaww: )
