@onion well, there are currently some considerable issues with
- refusal to open source server
- whatever that xlm episode was
- uncertain future due to zoom acquisition
- service now owned by company that wants to please Beijing
- website with known vulnerabilities they haven't patched in 5 years

They do have a good concept, but depending on your point of view, their execution is flawed.

This may or may not have motivated me to build :)

Hi folks! 9 years ago (to the day), the late Aaron Swartz made the first commit to SecureDrop, which was then called DeadDrop. Today the project is used by >70 media orgs around the world.

that the documentation is not free enough (!) to be included in 's main repo (it's in the non-free repo)

I’m installing Tails again when I get home. Something I like to do every three months, see what’s new.

Which of these solutions is more balance between usability and privacy focus.

I want to upload content about opensource apps, linux, privacy, info-sec and freedom of press. What are the best channels to communicate?

Google Analytics is the most prevalent tracker in the world. During our last crawl, we found it on 64.2% of web sites:


Developers: every time you add Google Analytics to a site, you are helping build the global panopticon. Stop it!

Hi, I'm new on fosstodon but It's not my first time on a Mastodon Instance. I really apreciate the work that open source communities are doing and social media on the fediverse to take back the control of our privacy.
I'm a studiying software engineer, I'm learning to code and a I'm linux user (Fedora). I would like help more FOSS projects.


Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
