@mawr Sadly, despite overpaying for it, my phone is owned by a corporation and won’t give me the boot loader code! Grr... :(
@vortex_egg Likewise! The trap of expertise expectation is keeping infosec options from permeating wider community deployment. Like the sex Ed folk say: there is no safe, only safer. It’s worth it to take prudent steps.
@Shufei Earlier in the year I was biking around my city and ran into a randomly heavy police and homeland security presence loitering downtown. Shortly after that I pass a small anti-police protest by the local DSA, being sandwiched by the above.
I found out this protest was apparently a) unregistered with the city (to make it a "surprise action")... and b) planned entirely on facebook. I discovered those facts because I googled some of the details (date, city, "anti-police protest") and got a link to their fb group page as a top result.
