Briar is censorship resistant

1. it does not rely on centralized server infrastructure
2. Tor, and bridges to Tor in case Tor is under censorship are implemented by default
3. build with offgrid communication in mind, in case of internet shutdown
4. no Sim card required. (sim card registration can be stopped/on hold by gov)

Don't build proxies serving only a single purpose, support general purpose censorship prevention tools such as @torproject@mastodon.so.cial. Create #Tor nodes and bridges

communities disappearing from self-hosted forums and even Livejournal to places like Tumblr and Twitter, and to a lesser extent Reddit, was a move from spaces we controlled to spaces designed to control us

Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

Today I finally got through to my, soon to be, 13 year old son. He has started to get curious (and almost accepted) about switching from Mac OS X to a Linux computer/operating system instead. The only big problem to solve is how he will be able to play his favorite games on "Roblox" from now on...?

It seams to not work in wine anylonger?

Anyone with experience, please come forward?

Where I bank is sensitive information. It has value, most especially to debt collectors, hackers, and adversaries. Hackers would love to have that info not necessarily to attack the acct but to write a convincing ransom demand. Google ties downloads to identities. The app can only be exclusively jailed in a walled garden if the source code is secret (and it is).

Many of our followers are FOSS people, but for those who are not, WhatsApp now insists you share data with Facebook or delete the app. I say delete the app AND Facebook. We use on the farm, private, secure, open source!
