Now that the new OnionShare has better command line support, I just wrote a guide explaining how to run your own anonymous Tor dropbox on a Raspberry Pi. Check it out: https://micahflee.com/2021/02/onionshare-anonymous-dropbox-raspberry-pi/
If you have any leaks, load this URL in Tor Browser to send them my way: http://vxat6yszh7o5r2fxzvibxsb4lmfi6yzudobn3o3yz2vhvue3z2xmbqid.onion
Many articles about the Australia-Facebook dispute noted that a large number of people rely on Facebook as their primary news and information portal. Because I think that relying on a big tech entity that treats users as products for advertisers as a primary news source is unwise - I suggest RSS as an alternative in my post.
Giving thanks to Melitta Bentz over my coffee this morning:
China has banned BBC World News from broadcasting in the country, its television and radio regulator announced on Thursday.
Something they said?
If you weren't among the 33,600 people 😮 at online #FOSDEM this weekend, be advised: 100% #FOSS for online conferences is production ready *today*. Say NO to any Zoom (or other proprietary software) online events from now on. Demand software freedom! https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2021/feb/08/just-say-no-to-zoom/
Amazon Ring still poses a threat to vulnerable and over-policed communities, but its introduction of end-to-end encryption is a victory for privacy advocates.

That license remains a disingenuous proposal until it's put to use in an “inbound=outbound” licensing configuration.

#Accessibility has many forms! I love that LEGO is thinking about how to make play more accessible.

In the last year Google has banned: the Element app, the LBRY app, and several Fediverse apps. If you get all of your apps from a single corporation, be it Google or Apple, you should make an effort to change that.
If you have an Android phone F-Droid is an alternative app repository, and it’s very easy to install! All of the previously mentioned apps have been available from F-Droid throughout being dropped from the Play Store.
If you have an iPhone, please consider other options for your next device. Apple does not respect you enough as a user to consider you possibly more capable of deciding what you should install on your phone than they are. That is absurd; please stop rewarding this behavior with your money.
