Imagine instead of wasting 1000$ on a phone and then give away all your metadata to multiple big tech, you buy a 200$ phone, and then donate 200$ top to open source projects.

That will make it 400$ cost (600 less dollars) and you are contributing to your privacy and freedom + contributing to projects that are healthy for us.

We can make it happen.

@nitox I did find two. One is called piphone and the other zero pi. I don't think they be quite up to spec, but you could give them a look if you want. I think persobaly i want to mess with my pi a bit and see if i can find my own meathod for it. I am not really look for calling more just a pi i can use to chat with people on web. Look things up and watch local files. So gonna try if i can get that to work

@nitox Yes, I think there's a lot of possibilities ! You're welcome !! 🖖😋

Isn't it possible to run a mobile device done with a raspberry pi? Touch screen, wifi, battery and charge status, bluetooth, multimedia, microphone...

I want to make one!

Was looking for a decentralized way of hosting a blog based on static files. Found this: #decentralization

A lot of you post some interesting-looking links, but if it doesn't just load without JavaScript or cookies, I'm generally not going to be interested enough to bother trying to find away to extract the text.

From HN discussion - "This is why I use ad blockers and a pi-hole server" (

This is GDPR in action. Wow.

@nitox That's not exactly right as you need to change URL to an onion address ( esp see bottom of that page).

deb tor+vwakviie2ienjx6t.onion/debian buster main
deb tor+vwakviie2ienjx6t.onion/debian buster-updates main
deb tor+sgvtcaew4bxjd7ln.onion/debian- buster/updates main

#deb tor+vwakviie2ienjx6t.onion/debian buster-backports main

Better legible on (replace stretch with your actual release like buster if appropriate).

Love the licenses that say ""Don't even try to discover my backdoor by reverse engineering, because the laws of california protect my backdoors""

I've been on the fringe of Tech since I started. What the Wired article doesn't recall is that back in the BBS days, we HAD decentralized hubs, so the idea of that we needed a Google or FB to make communications happen seemed like the super EASY way to do things. Not necessarily the best.

TIL that apt has support for downloading packages and updates through tor.

Just install apt-transport-tor and change url on your sources.list from URL to tor+URL

I wish more accepted Monero! But it's also great to use BTC for purpose of donations. I love that I can pay for my @protonmail & @protonvpn plan this way.

That's it! I did it!

I own a matrix synapse instance with a free subdomain, my data and family on my server is pretty safe now :tor:

I guess one way of making people aware of privacy issues is when a friend/family member says something like "just send me a whatsapp with this or that", you should reply: I love you too much to violate your privacy like that?

We need to start making people think about their data.
