Delete Chrome. Now.
Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.
They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.
If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.
Me: abolish the police
Others: But they solve CRIMES

I spent parts of January working on a new kind of search engine. Instead of indexing the unfathomable internet, it focuses on enabling search for neighbourhoods of related websites—webrings, or other kinds of topically similar sites.
Thanks for the retoots but we have found enough people for now, might be back in the future though! :) And if anyone wants to try ssb or give a hand in developing it you can just write to me
To get "hired" I'd suggest you make a post on ssb saying something like "Hi I'm W and I have experience X. I'd like to work on Y for Z hours", where Z is something like 30-50 hours.
Payment would be through one of our opencollectives, e.g. https://opencollective.com/patchwork , which supports at least paypal. Work would be for a specific amount of hours (and prob 30usd/h).
We have a list of issues here we'd love help with to reach 1.0 https://github.com/fraction/oasis/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+milestone%3A%221%3A+Barebones%22

I can't in good conscience recommend Apple devices to people anymore. I used to believe that Apple was the more private company (as compared to Google), they just had a lot of proprietary stuff. But they're not even using TLS when they track every application you open!
People need to ditch Apple, but I don't see that happening any time soon. Surveillance grows...
Yesterday we joined with indigenous Sami activists to block roads and occupy @email@example.com office in Stockholm as part of our November Rebellion. We demand #ClimateJustice and that the Swe government ratifies the Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Convention C169
an important report has just been published by my friend emmi: The Decentralized Web of Hate
"Fascists (and other bad actors) are [...] hosting manifestos resiliently, raising money anonymously, communicating securely to organize attacks, sharing weapons plans, and networking to build out their numbers."
"We cannot abandon p2p technology but we also can't ignore the risks. The only way out is through."
