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.

It's an open source whistleblower submission platform that uses the Tor network to protect source anonymity. We're also working on a next-generation integrated workstation for journalists based on Qubes OS:

We're happy to be here! #introductions

Made the realization (again) that my bookshelves and projects that aren't work or home-care-related are there because they're my hobbies or are things that I'm interested in. If they're no longer bringing me joy it's OK to jettison them.

Tired of feeling awful because I'm overwhelmed with the thought of what I could be doing. That's not a healthy way to live.

Trebuchet that shit.

Hey Apple,

Saying you block trackers but not blocking Google Analytics is like saying you practice safe sex when you cut off the heads of your condoms.

Sincerely,
A guy who makes an app that actually blocks trackers

My beef with VPNs: they are a centralized party collecting your data. Use free, distributed tech instead!

@thenewoil #DuckDuckGo is just another #privacy abuser (dev.lemmy.ml/post/31321). This kind of naivity is typical of the European Commission. It's no suprise that Weinberg can fool the laypeople, but embarrassing that the EU Commission has suckered for his privacy propaganda.

Amazon claims to “stand in solidarity with the Black community” and with those fighting back against police brutality and injustice.

Then why do they offer a tool that intensifies suspicion and perpetuates the police harassment of Black Americans?
