What’s always motivated and inspired us is what privacy enables, and what we lose if we lose our privacy.

That’s why we looked at the key role plays in protecting people’s freedoms.

We call this series Privacy Matters - enjoy!

Snowden: "Apple just declared war on your privacy"

Make peace, not war. Choose free and open source software over privacy intruding services from Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon or Microsoft.

"Linux is without exaggeration a foundation of the digital society".

Yep. For over 30 years, GNU/Linux as well as free & open source software at large have been changing the world for the better.

With Apple no longer a viable stopgap as a mainstream platform that protects your privacy, what choices do we have?

Are the free/open alternatives ready or are we asking folks to make tradeoffs between security and privacy (can you have privacy without security? Not really. Although security doesn’t imply privacy either). And what about the FOSS elephant in the room: accessibility?

Join us live today at 5PM Irish time on Small is Beautiful and let’s discuss it.

To commemorate EFF's 30th anniversary, @snowden sat down with us to weigh in on the internet and surveillance, its impact on culture and activism, and how we’re grappling with the cracks the pandemic revealed—and widened—in our digital world.

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.
