"But I think they shouldn’t be allowed to collect data about people. We need a law. F**k them — there’s no reason we should let them exist if the price is knowing everything about us. Let them disappear. They’re not important — our human rights are important."
How Shoddy Reporting and Anti-Russian Propaganda Coerced Ecuador to Silence Julian Assange

A story of news, fake news, fake-fake news, and the ones who create and instrumentalize them...
This is huge. Russia’s unelected government is afraid of communications it can’t monitor, so it tries to shut down Telegram. Telegram moves to AWS and Google Cloud. Russia BLOCKS both services.
@seanl @bob @pettter @nolan @CobaltVelvet I'm also in the minority in that anonymnity is interesting to me, but is not the *most* interesting property of tor onion services for myself personally. (I generally assume that unmasking tor users takes work but is generally possible for a state actor.)
What tor onion services also bring is a decentralized & globally unique identifier that can be used to set up a secure *connection* between entities, but is backwards compatible with lots of tooling!

"This is a company that is basically the primary/only gateway to much of the Internet, and it has decided that certain IP addresses *do not deserve access to that Internet*. Full stop. This is not a problem that gets solved by having our devs talk to their devs to "nerd harder". This should be a PR bloodbath.. We should have made it one months ago."

Russian Court Bans Telegram App for refusing to hand over encryption keys.
Commendable they refuse to hand over keys but now no more Telegram in Russia... The issue with #centralization made clear again. Better #federate with #matrix #XMPP
