@strypey i have to nit-pick the fact that it must be obtained from #Github (git clone https://github.com/theWebalyst/dweb-blog). I can understand that perhaps they can't eat their own dog food since it doesn't even use the web, but they could have distributed the s/w from sr.ht or the like. Anyway, it seems worth a look.
@Gargron @dansup Warning to #Patreon patrons-- the app a bit on the snoopy side (grabs a copy of your clipboard when you start their app): https://state.substack.com/p/please-leave-our-clipboards-alone Also note that Patreon's website is MitMd by #cloudflare
#eBay is port scanning their visitors: http://web.archivecrfip2lpi.onion/web/20200526092506/https://blog.nem.ec/2020/05/24/ebay-port-scanning/ (warning, the article is in CloudFlare, so view the archive of it instead)
@el_joa I'm not sure why you wouldn't simply post your SEPA info on your site.. why wouldn't that suffice? Anyway, I suggest looking here: https://wiki.snowdrift.coop/market-research/other-crowdfunding
@Coffee @freddyym Another example: gay Canadian man was trying to enter the US. CBP denied him entry after snooping through his phone and finding a msg from another gay man looking to hook up. He did nothing illegal, but was denied entry. (if you're not a citizen, you can be denied entry for any reason). https://sputniknews.com/art_living/201702211050924325-usa-customs-canada-deny-entry/
@freddyym @Coffee for normies caught up in mass surveillance, the data collection mostly just sits, waiting until someone needs leverage against you. Most will never know the threat is there. Privacy is like guns and condoms- better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. Privacy is also like virginity- once you lose it you can't have it back.
@freddyym @Coffee why does that matter, some will ask. Because abusers of privacy are often nefarious in other ways, e.g. Amazon, Microsoft, & Google are all involved in the fossil fuel biz. We need boycott tools to fight #climateChange, and privacy is the tool for that job. We can fight climate change by denying our data to Amazon, Google, and MS, thus reducing their profit.
@Coffee @freddyym Martin Luther King is a good example. He was wiretapped despite not breaking the law. The FBI managed to dig up an affair he was having, which they then used against his movement by threatening to embarrass those who would award him with human rights awards by smearing MLK's character.
@cypnk @valerauko Efforts like scihub and libgen are huge especially for people like me with less priviledged backgrounds studying in lesser universities with poor libraries. I'm doing an MA in linguistics, and I don't have library access to >90% of what I read, and I lack means to buy even <5-10% of that (or even rent...). Simply put, Open Access and related activisim is a true, solid, huge, and invaluable enabler.
