Hi #fediverse

There's global movement in the field of #humanetechnology due to #TheSocialDilemma and many others tirelessly fighting for a better internet.

Many great resources, such as socialcooling.com exist. But as @lopeztel pointed out: Most are in English only!! For #socialcooling we have volunteers to translate this page.

We may crowdsource translating of #humanetech resources more structurally: As a project.

I created this thread to gauge your interest: community.humanetech.com/t/499

Seven years ago, as the news declared I was being charged as a criminal for speaking the truth, I never imagined that I would live to see our courts condemn the NSA's activities as unlawful and in the same ruling credit me for exposing them.

And yet that day has arrived.

ACLU: BREAKING: A federal appeals court just ruled that the NSA’s bulk collection of Americans’ phone records was illegal.

This ruling, which confirms what we have always known, is a victory for our privacy rights.

Someone "popular" on the security community on Twitter said to never host your own mail server...

Actually, do the opposite.

-Host your own mail server

-Host your own matrix homeserver

-Host your own mastodon instance

-Host your own DNS server if you can

Just do it securely and follow the good practices

Fight back on the centralization of the web.

Imagine a day, where asking a dev to restrict their app to some people is a normal behavior. Today, maybe 99,9% don't care due to the target. But what's next?
Do you like to choose freely an app with your needs or choose your needs due to apps?

Mastodon is een sociaal netwerk (vergelijkbaar met Twitter) dat gebruikt maakt van open webprotocollen en vrije software. Het is net zoals e-mail gedecentraliseerd. En dit is mijn server.
