Why do anarchists only drink herbal tea?

Because proper tea is theft.

Meanwhile in Poland, 52 year old Ela Podleśna was just arrested for making this image.

Let's spread it.

NEW: An $8.8 billion network of offshore companies allowed corrupt politicians and criminals to secretly launder money, evade taxes, and hide assets abroad.

Along with our reporting partners, OCCRP brings you the #TroikaLaundromat, based on one of the largest-ever leaks of banking records and related documents.

I don't know how to pronounce it, but I love the the meaning of the word #Cwtch

It is also the name of the new decentralized, asynchronous and metadata resistant multi-party communication tool by #OpenPrivacy. It is based on ricochet and is built on tor onion services. Yesterday they published the open alpha:

if a bot plays music to an empty mumble server and nobody is around to hear it, does it still make a sound?

Found code me and @czesiekhaker hacked together to stream Global Summit 2011:

Yes, we were streaming the whole damn CC Global Summit using a bunch of VLCs in a trench coat. And it *worked*.

We were also handling the WiFi. Guess who was the only person on the whole summit who got a new shiny Mac and their WiFi just would not work? Larry fucking Lessig.

Good times. I believe that's when I met @cwebber , too.

@ckeen @alxd the men needing to learn about feminism don't listen to women. We tried for years. I'm so fucking tired. They need to learn it from other men, preferably throwing them out when they continue to misbehave.

How I would be looking ahead if I were Google:
- The biggest flaw in Android is that it's hackable and contains privacy features that make it possible to cripple the spyware in it
- The "look but don't touch" open-source model works great, let's clamp down even harder on it
- Why don't we try packaging most of the system in nice modular binary blobs, so that things like OEM drivers, platform-specific UIs, and apps are easy to install but impossible to modify
- Also how about it tracks all of its activity at the kernel level and reports it directly to us, and you can't disable that without refusing network access to the kernel altogether
- Sure, folks will try to fork it, but that won't go well for them if the OEM driver blobs are illegal to distribute and will only work with official signed kernels
