Last week, Google announced its own VPN service. Trusting Google's VPN would be like trusting a VPN from the NSA. Here's why giving Google direct access to all your online activity is a terrible idea:

I wrote for Infosecurity Magazine about why it's time (and well beyond time!) for the US to pardon Snowden.

What is everyone's favorite bookmark manager?

I would like something that works on Linux, Mac, and iOS.

At this rate, I see Mozilla effectively dead by 2022.

Firefox usage is down 85% despite Mozilla's top exec pay going up 400%

@TheNerdyAnarchist hey a comrade of mine is looking for an invite to 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.

We need your signatures! Please add your name here:

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 It was a fork of ComputeFreely, which had become outdated.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.
