For one year already, Australian police can hack your device, collect or delete your data, or take over your social media accounts. Authorities around the world want to spy on our private data. We must fight for our right to privacy! 💪

Demonstration against surveillance


Sometimes the internet is really funny - or scary.

The Chrome browser is one example.

While you believe you are browsing the web, Google is browsing you instead.

Check out Leah Elliott's comic on how Google's tracking works: https://contrachrome.com/comic/page01/

You’ve got nothing to hide so you’ve got nothing to fear, right?

Isn’t “smart tech” just wonderful? :)

Know that there are politicians in the West who drool at the thought of being able to do to you what China does to its citizens.

GNOME Software is being worked on :) Requires some work on # and GNOME Software plugin for apk. Every release comes closer to a more polished experience, but it will take years to reach the same maturity as #. Luckily without # ;P


💡 It leaves out the important reminder that many of the # used to create this so-called "public #" have their roots in #, which allows citizens to control of their own "digital lives" without government or quasi-government corporate # as intermediary.

e.g., I may have a Chinese-made phone sold with Google's # spyware, but because it's # I am free to install a privacy-protecting OS instead.

Do it now.

"Frantic individual efforts to swat away digital intrusions will do too little. What’s needed, for all Americans, is a full legal and political reckoning with the reckless manner in which digital technology has been allowed to invade our lives. The collection, use and manipulation of electronic # must finally be regulated and severely limited. Only then can we comfortably enjoy all the good that can come from these technologies."

We have NO IDEA what type of ppl w/be in power (or incorp this) in the future.

Too many ppl reflect only on today.

Gifting MASSIVE total control tech, over all humans, using combined # + # + Mass # + fusion centers.

Corporate interests. Discreet power struggles.

Anything short of a full ban today is (at best) a hope future leaders will care more about your children's freedom than they do donor profits & digital dictatorship dreams.

Handing control of our biometric identities to a handful of trillion-dollar American gatekeeper corporations isn’t the good news you might think it is.

(Don’t forget, the W3C is the standards body of surveillance capitalism.)

In a non-corporate world, your “password” could be so much more… It could be, for example, a mnemonic for the key to a facet of your self that you (and you alone) own and control.
