Using the modern web doesn't feel empowering. It feels immensely frustrating.
The web is barely usable without ad-blocking. Pages take an age to load and the content jumps around as more ads download and display. Also the ads are spying on you.
The entire JS ecosystem is dependency hell and sometimes you have to download massive JS files just to view a web page. The JS is probably also spying on you.
Worse still, JS is also probably why the Back button doesn't work properly on so many sites.
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: LRT: It's important to understand that people calling the Proud Boys "brownshirts" aren't being hyperbolic but making an actual historical parallel. The Proud Boys commit violence, the right blames the left for this, thus "necessitating" the readiness for future violence.
I'm going to keep reiterating this because the "power to the people" / "collective domination is good" tendency of the Left keeps creeping back:
Democracy is evil. Our goal is to kill power, not collectivize it.
The hardest part of using PGP, key management, doesn't scale well in large organizations. We solved this problem at First Look Media (where there are over 200 PGP users) with GPG Sync. We maintain a keylist, and everyone subscribes to it, so everyone has the latest public key for everyone else.
I'm excited to announce that we've submitted a draft RFC that will turn GPG Sync into an internet standard!

@resist_berlin "WE have tools available that were considered ridiculously radical only a generation ago. Why are we using them so sheepishly?"
