A symbolic donation challenge

Since you are reading this post I guess you are directly interested in the improvement of Diaspora*. As you probably know Diaspora* couldn't improve without the hard and enthusiastic work of the developers. That is why

I challenge you to give at least a symbolic €0.01/week amount to the Diaspora* developers

FSF on EFAIL

For anyone who's not on the mailing list of the FSF and hasn't gotten the news about EFAIL (that new "vulnerability" of GPG everyone was talking about a few weeks ago), here you go:
In May, a draft technical paper published at efail.de recommended that people stop using GPG plugins to encrypt their email. At the same time, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) raised the alarm about seemingly new vulnerabilities in GPG (GNU Privacy Guard), echoing the paper's cautionary recommendations. Others further reduced this recommendation to a simple shorthand: stop encrypting your email, because it isn't safe. (EFF has

Escaping Google's gravity well: personal to-do list


I can't find who shared the Google alternatives page of RestorePrivacy.com with me but this is the path I intend to take forward.

I already:
  • deleted my Analytics and AdWords accounts.
  • switched to Qwant for personal search.
  • replaced Chrome with Vivaldi based on Chromium without the Google wrapper.
  • set up a personal NextCloud instance.
I still have to:
  • Move my documents to NextCloud although the web editing tools are lacking.
  • Open an email/calendar account with a different provider (ProtonMail, MailFence?).
  • Delete my Google account entirely.
I probably will open a new bare Google account to use Youtube only because there isn't any alternative for the available content. #Google #Privacy #NextCloud #Qwant #Vivaldi #ProtonMail #MailFence

 
Hello Gibberfish Social users!

As you may or may not be aware, our pod is operated and paid for by Gibberfish, Inc. We are a nonprofit dedicated to providing free, private, encrypted tools for activists, political dissidents, and human rights defenders. In addition, as a service to the public, we provide this Diaspora pod, an anonymous search engine and a Tor exit node.

The first 18 months of our existence has been underwritten primarily by our founding members, but now our costs have risen, and we're asking our Diaspora* users for help. If you value this pod, please think about how much it is worth to you, and consider making a donation to help fund our operations. If you're having trouble deciding on a number, we suggest $10. If you can't afford to contribute, we totally understand, but if you can afford to, please do.

Patreon... Just... Why?

WARNING: Long post ahead.

*sighs* Just talking about this is annoying.

So, you know, about half a month ago, the GDPR went into effect, yes? May 25 ring a bell? Yeah, well, so Patreon updated their privacy policy just like about everyone else. They also kept the usual "if you continue to use the service after these changes have gone into effect, you agree to those changes". Which is why I wrote them an enquiry via email.

me → Patreon
In the [privacy policy update notification email], it is stated that "if [I]continue using Patreon on or after May 25, 2018, [I am] agreeing to these terms". If I am informed correctly, this is not how the General Data Protection Regulation works. It requires "a clear affirmative act establishing a freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her, such as by a written statement, including by electronic means, or an oral statement" (Recital 32, GDPR).

Interesting as to the reasons why this is happening, privacy and debate, I am posting this here, as it is related to the features discussion as we need to go forward.

In order to expand our offering of free public privacy tools, we have started our own chat server with open registrations. The server uses XMPP ("Jabber") which is compatible with most popular instant messaging clients, and can be used to communicate with users of other XMPP servers, including Diaspora*.

We are announcing this here before listing ourselves on public registries in order to attract some early adopters so that we can work out any technical issues before advertising to a wider audience. Please check out our policies before signing up.

To connect, configure your IM client for chat.gibberfish.org on port 5222 using TLS encryption. Alternately, you can connect via Tor at 5kpdrdn4cxpby7mz.onion. If you have any problems, please PM us here, or send a message to blacksam@chat.gibberfish.org via XMPP.

Want to disable Intel Management Engine

It is actually a scandal that the world depends on chips and operating systems – that are designed to do mass-surveillance – it seems – in order to build up a world-wide-dictatorship that no-one can escape… by information and money.

That bit's certainly true. I'm not convinced we can't though (and there's even a proposal I need to get back to from the GPG folks, I suck / am overloaded). XMPP's stuff was layered on, and I think we could do that too. @cwebber

How to write own Terms of Service

Sorry for asking if this question was already discussed here.
I want to write own Terms of Service to accord with latest russian ans european laws on data #privacy.

but seems like markup doesn't supported in includes.
