@TheNerdyAnarchist hey a comrade of mine is looking for an invite to Anarchism.space do you happen to have one?

Really happy to see @subMedia on the Federated web! Kolektiva looks an awesome new leftist friendly instance!

So I am used to pissing off fascists on birdsite and getting told to self-harm, or leave the country.

I pissed off a bunch of liberals this week and my inbox is full of death threats and homophobic and transphobic language.

Internet security tip: Don't use "beefstew" as a password.

It's not stroganoff.

I have moved the final version of TryLinux to Codeberg and that is where the code will exist for anyone who wishes to take the project over. There's a lot of changes made since I forked it, so I didn't want those to be lost.


Police are not workers and their “unions” don’t belong anywhere near actual workers unions. That’s why I’m calling on AFSCME to kick them out.

This year we launched TryLinux, a site to help organize and highlight some of the best Linux distros. It was a fork of ComputeFreely, which had become outdated.

We have decided that maintaining TryLinux is more than we care to handle at the moment and will be shutting it down.

Mozilla Google budget screaming 

Something is just wrong here... Mozilla just extended its deal with Google (making it the numero uno search engine) for something like 400 million dollars PER YEAR. For the next three years.

That is 1.2 BILLION dollars from 2020 to 2023.

If you cannot run a freaking NON-PROFIT on 400 MILLION dollars PER YEAR that means:

a) You are paying your executives too much.
b) You don't know how to manage a non-profit.
c) All of the above.

Given the hate from the right we are getting on bird site right now, I’ll say it here as well.

ThinkPrivacy supports anti fascists in their struggles around the globe, we believe that all black lives matter, and we do not believe fascists or those who sympathize with fascists have any place in our communities.

@TheFuzzStone You can't leave politics out of FOSS. It is everywhere.

However, I don't see how anyone can compare the left to the right. One's taking away people's rights, literally murdering people, and the other is the left trying to stop that.

Start a shit storm on Twitter by saying that fascists have no place in the privacy community.

You can spot the fascists as they are the ones getting really upset about it.

My latest on Startpage's Privacy Please blog about the difference between using a VPN and a privacy respecting search engine (and why you need to do both!)


I have a new piece up on Hacker Noon about privacy suggestions for students going back to school with distances learning.


Well, I can't tweet for the time being, but I can toot!
