I was on Al Jazeera Live today and spoke about how we must remain vigilant in the face of surveillance capitalists and governments that want to use the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to widen their dragnets.

You can watch the recording on my blog:

@andreas good tip! especially since I just put :popos: on my new laptop

@ashfurrow if you ever have a chance, a Pop_OS! icon would be rad too!

@aral I am giving my wife her first Linux laptop this week and while she won't likely use terminal on it, I will and I am going to use this and she's going to love it haha.

Our founder @danarel wrote about privacy in the home (especially with children) for the Startpage blog.


hey all, I wrote about privacy in my home for Startpage.

Having children online can seem overwhelming, but honestly we can take some simple steps to keep them safe online and ensure they aren't having their privacy rights violated.


Pushed a large update to TryLinux.today

Added a new hardware section for Linux computers and cleaned up some inactive OS recommendations.

@ashfurrow how does one get an emoji thing added? I noticed I can't find one for Manjaro.

This is my day job work station (MacBook Pro). No real work area since my wife works from home and has the home office. So I work at the kitchen table for now.

I (Dan Arel) - work in the health care industry so if I have been MIA the last few weeks, it's because my day job has kept me buried with all that's happening with COVID-19.

Just know, the site is up, active, and we care deeply about your privacy still!

“Tech rights” can’t even figure out how to use an SSL certificate. But sure, pretend he’s a news source for privacy.

@MG Most have rather current software in their repos. I personally find that Arch (or even Manjaro) have them sooner, but thats marginal and not proven, just my view of it.

@rugk I have openly said its a fork, many times, and it’s right in the about me section. I wouldn’t call that hidden. I link directly to it.

After a few weeks on Arch Linux, I really loved so much about it, but had some stability issues quicker than I imagined and lost the ability to even boot into the OS.

I decided to give @manjarolinux a spin and 12 hours in I am pretty happy.

I hope this sticks!
