Privacy, like security, requires technology that can be examined, reviewed, studied, vetted and modified. It's also a personal consideration

We need a full free and open technology stack: software, devices, data and society

is everything you think necessary for your personal freedom, privacy and security ( even things we have not yet created )

We now have a #Glimpse project code of conduct!

The community determined it should be based on the Contributor Covenant, and that it should be added to and amended over time as the need arises. If you have any further ideas or feedback, let us know.

(As previously stated we are still working on the website, so expect the theme and layout to change in the near future)

Fresno! Mark your calendar for Saturday, 7/27 and join @RootaAcessCA, a hacker and maker space in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, for a community celebration and launch event!

The Risc-V development board from SiFive 'freedom E310' arrived today. It is tiny! I now own a little piece of computer history.

Gonna take the whole "Don't scab on prime day" moment to promote one of my favourite alternatives to an amazon product.

The Movie Database is a free community-run alternative to IMDB, unlike amazon's shitty website, TMDB isn't full to bursting with ads, trackers and sluggish JavaScript, and provides an excellent platform for folk to catalogue information about their favorite films without being marketed to.

Please support it, not just on prime day, but any time you need info on a film. Keep information free.

Keyservers are one of the most frustrating aspects of using public key crypto. They're notoriously unreliable & vulnerable to various types of flooding attacks.

Last month was launched, which is a very well-architected and collaboratively run new keyserver.

As of today, the SecureDrop team is using it for its release key. Very proud to be early adopters of this new public infra. Hopefully we'll be able to add WKD support soon, as well.

Hey! :) The Recurse Center is "funding Fellowships of up to $10,000 for women, trans, and non-binary people to work on programming projects, research, and art at RC this fall.

Apply by July 22nd and start August 12th or September 23rd."

This is an incredible opportunity โ€“ if you want to be part of a diverse, kind programming community, and spend three months focusing on projects close to your heart, this is your chance! Happy to answer any questions you might have! \o/

If you want to get involved with the project, we are now ready to share our public chat channels!
