This week, we have a very uncommon onion roots shirt available to you for a $41 donation. This is a favorite color among Tor contributors.

Just write in '41' into the other box on the donate page, and it's yours. donate.torproject.org

What do you use as your daily driver?
(Boosts appreciated)

As @Liberapay doesn't fit my use case, I decide to go on and delete the account. Though the deletion page gave me pause (actually they only allow you to close the account according to their page):

"We may give your username to someone else if they ask for it, but not for at least a year after you close your account".

Recycling usernames is a bad practice. I don't know why any service should do this.

Modern credential management – security tokens, password managers, and a simple spreadsheet:

infosec-handbook.eu/blog/moder

– there are no "secure" or "insecure" credentials as long as you don't define your own threat model
– use password managers to actually manage (not only store) passwords
– use a spreadsheet to keep track of the rest (SSH keys, GPG keys)

The German Ministry of the Interior wants to force WhattsApp, Threema and Apple to decrypt encrypted messages. But a backdoor for the "good guys" only is impossible. While this draft would not affect , we will fight it.

Deutsche Politikerinnen wünschen sich von Facebook, seine Messenger für die Kommunikation mit anderen zu öffnen. Kollege @schiebde@twitter.com hat dazu einen ausgezeichneten Beitrag gemacht, der dem Begriff #interoperability vielleicht bald Flügel verleiht: www1.wdr.de/mediathek/video/se

Trying to make end users to use #FLOSS on #Android is difficult... Lack of support is one of the reasons we should get fixed rather sooner than later. dm.zimmer428.net/2019/05/andro

I've just set up #Nextcloud for any that are interested! Users get 10 GB by default; let me know if you need more and we can talk.

Before registering, make sure you read this page: nixnet.xyz/nextcloud/

It's available over clearnet: cloud.nixnet.xyz/

And over #Tor as a #HiddenService:

Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!

I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)

We ❤️ open source. Your Tutanota client is fully published as open source software. 😍 We even built our own captcha instead of using Google's Captcha. Read here why: tutanota.com/blog/posts/open-s

Really, @purism? You copy a bunch of open-source apps and make it look like they are yours without any mention of the original apps? I think you should delete these apps immediately and publicly apologize. Or at least don't have the audacity to call yourself a "Social Purpose Corporation that does not exploit people and puts doing social good over maximizing profit ", because its obviously not true.

Don't get me wrong, its fine to fork #Tusky (and others), but please adhere to GPL 3, which says "The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified it, and giving a relevant date."

@purism @Purism While I'm all for decentralisation and moving away from malicious corporate entities, I don't really like how it's made to seem as if every service on librem.one is something made by Purism. The technical specifications do say what protocol is being used but not the underlying software and I think that's an underhanded way to go about it.

At least say LibremSocial is Mastodon, LibremTunnel is PIA, LibremMail is any old mail server with tight GPG integration & K-9 Mail from Android, and that LibremFiles and Contacts will, I assume, be Nextcloud.

I really don't like people that come along, take a good open source project, rebrand it, and pass it off as their own. Transparency is a good thing and I don't really see any on the front page of librem.one

If you were operating this as a non-profit, that would one thing. It's an entirely different matter to be making money from free software without giving credit where credit is due.
