My Favorite Internet Privacy Resources

(the best privacy services recommendation site)
(my first encounter to internet privacy & recommendation resources, thanks to Trisquel Forum)
(friendly & eye-catching list of privacy oriented software for all platforms)

@ademalsasa thank you very much, I too wish that the idea and concept of hostsharing as a cooperative becomes known beyond the german speaking countries! It’s definitely an idea worth spreading. So, some day it will be available in English, that just depends on either our growth or even better, an enthusiastic team at your place for example to start an open source hosting cooperative.

@ademalsasa I understand that, but the act of sending Microsoft a hard drive along with a list of signatures and requesting the source code to Windows 7 along with a libre software license is something that hasn't been done before. It's the boldest thing I've ever seen the FSF do. That's why this article surprises me.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

Typing 'dmesg | tail' after you plug in usb storage will give you its
partition name (ex: /dev/sdb1) simplifying the mounting process.

We also started an #opencollective now:

Expect more news and proper promotion soon. We are planning on adding proper support for opencollective into #fdroid as soon.

Would people be interested in supporting #FDroid development via Patreon?

I used to read a lot on personal blogs or generic news/tutorial websites about anything about GNU/Linux.
Today I am more focus on Guix and Guile so I just read in respective websites and mailling lists.
Maybe the last news about GNU/Linux I check quicly is (french)

@ademalsasa I don't know if I have a very good answer, because mostly I refer to the websites and codebases for the individual components I'm interested in. Though to see how those components hook together I like & elementary's "open source" page which also does a great job explaining what I value in it.

But I do like the look of Linux Rig, it'd be very useful if I haven't found elementary suits me so well!

Dear Thinkpad owners, maybe you could help me. Sometimes when waking from s3 sleep the trackpoint of my x1 doesn't work. Which is annoying since this is my primary mouse. Does anyone else have that issue? Did you solve it?

The slides of my #FDroid talk from yesterday are now online here:

It contains some interesting stats about F-Droid over the last year. Don't you miss the days when the web really was the world's greatest decentralized network?

I switched to #ProtonMail and migrated/deleted everything in my #GMail account some time ago. I'd rather pay with cash than pay with my privacy and #security.
