It turns out that the 'hacking attempt' claimed by Georgia's governor in 2018 was a security test the state requested itself https://news.slashdot.org/story/20/05/30/017257/2018-hacking-attempt-claimed-by-georgia-was-a-security-test-theyd-requested-themselves
After today's conf. call... maybe the governors agree with the protesters.
When considering journalism’s role in moments like this, I always come back to this photo.
Richard Cohen, the man who took this photograph, won a Pulitzer.
Edward Crawford, the young man photographed here, died suspiciously two years later.

“The gov needs to better explain its reasoning; what they have done so far has been rushed. Our concern is people will feel reluctant to participate if they feel their personal data is leaving their control.”

There is a non-zero possibility that major US cities are about to get their civilian communications infrastructure turned off or significantly restricted. If this idea scares you too much to contemplate, please move on. I can't think of how to CW this appropriately, so my apologies for your anxiety, but this is important to my social circle, so I'll continue.

The best way I can think to fight against comms being shut down is to use Dual Power Structure thinking: let's make our own network. This is not as unrealistic as it sounds. HAM Radio folks are already doing it. The software is open source, and runs on a massive number of surplus hardware.

You might say, "But Endomain, I'm not a licensed ham operator!"
I am not telling you what to do, but a lot of folks are breaking a lot of laws just by protesting. Folks are rightfully afraid of COVID-19 and that's fair, but you know what's socially distant? Rooftops of boarded up or looted buildings that are empty but still have electricity. Maybe this is a risk folks, licensed or not, are willing to take to take to keep comms up for protesters.
