We've got big news.
After months of work, Tor Browser is now stable on Android.

Imma make this clear: I'm not building software for developers.
I'm working to building tools for people.
You shouldn't have to know to maintain and secure a server to have your own independent identity online. You shouldn't need to know what libsodium or similar library to be secure online.
That's my objective.

What a busy year it was for elementary! We’ve posted regular updates on our blog each month, but here’s a recap of some of the biggest things we did in 2018: https://buff.ly/2sgnUf8
Pristina, the capital of #Kosovo has adopted #OpenStreetMap as their official tourist map!
Great news: my favourite tool for planning #running sessions #onthegomap https://onthegomap.com breaks free from #Google. Instead of Googlemap, it is now using #OpenStreetMap data. Even if some functions (searching box, elevation, etc.) are still missing, I congratulate the author for this brave move. #map #opensource
@switchingsocial @paulfree14 The #fdroid version is a fork by another developer: https://gitlab.com/axet/omim/
It removes all of the upstream trackers: https://gitlab.com/axet/omim/commit/53eb2a2c95ff9c2e88da8461b8913073d5d649cc
It's also only called "Maps".
I really like #OSMAnd but oh boy, #Maps (https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.github.axet.maps/) is really, really fast and slick. Both in rendering and navigation.
Not quite as featureful as OSMAnd though, I'll probably use both in the future.
(Update coming to your local @fdroidorg repo soon)
I'm still amazed by the state of that industry. Why paying for an eBook for nearly the same price as a printed book gives you a file you don't own and you can't use, while piracy gives you a file you can use like an actual book?
When buying a book, I can read it where I want, in as many places I want, on as many couches I want, and I can even lend it to a friend. And that's legal.
Wasn't technology supposed to make the future better?
This is draconian.
Anyone found guilty of running, or just visiting, a site Egypt has deemed a "threat to national security or the economy" could face prison or a fine. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-45237171
