PSA: Stop labelling people interested in OPSEC and privacy as "paranoid". Paranoia is a mental illness, heavily influenced by fear, that makes someone believe they're under constant threat even when there is no evidence for thinking so.

Being careful about your online identity, privacy, taking care of your passwords, and using second factor authentication is not paranoia. It's common sense.

There are malicious actors who want to get their hands on as much information as possible. This is fact.

software isn't born fully stable! that's okay! but as a developer or maintainer, it's important to be honest about that

more critically, it's important NOT to claim that software IS fully stable or production ready when major promised features haven't even been started yet

also please don't debut your project called "pixelfed" when it doesn't fucking federate yet

Good news, but @purism need to be more careful about catching privacy vulnerabilities coming in from upstream before #Forbes journalists do!?! This does raise some questions though, about why #Riot has 3 trackers installed in the first place (from #Matomo, gOgle, and Microsoft), and whether they're removed from the @fdroidorg version.

TIL: provides pseudo devices for TCP and UDP connections:

echo "hello" > /dev/udp/127.0.0.1/1337

or

exec 5<>/dev/tcp/www.google.com/80
echo -e "GET / HTTP/1.0\n" >&5
cat <&5

I'm baffled how I've never discovered that until today.

It's 2019 and I still find "professional" wi-fi networks that blocks outbound #SSH connections.
IOW, #Tor with this ~/.ssh/config snippet keeps making my days:

Host *.tor

Airports are increasingly becoming a hub of personal data collection. When opting out of these data collection programs is nearly impossible and air travel is nearly unavoidable, that's a problem. eff.org/deeplinks/2019/04/skip

In Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the OS and most of the apps were open-source.

In the new Android 9 Pie Go, every app is a proprietary Google app. The only surveillance "opt out" mechanism I can see right now with this phone is smashing it with a hammer.

This OS is most prevalent in the sub $100 smartphone category.

Tech companies are selling digital privacy as a premium product to the rich. Others have to accept surveillance as the price to pay for digital services. This new normal is dystopian.
