In response to the new changes to #100DaysToOffload I've created a whole new blog! It's not that exciting, just a place for me to put shorter or less 'relevant' posts (basically a notes section).
New Blog: Introducing our PeerTube Instance https://blog.privacytools.io/introducing-our-peertube-instance/ — PeerTube is approaching their 2020 crowdfunding goal, check them out! 😄
Email Isn’t Broken, Email Clients Are!
Someone has written a good response to both mine and @kev 's articles about email.
This is #opensource. If you see a project you like but is not quite there yet, you get the chance to make the change you want to see.
Oh neat, Njalla made a web app for checking a site’s DNS servers: https://check.njal.la/dns/?name=njalla.net
The original flawed premise of EARN IT was that services had to earn section 230 immunity. New amendments take the "earn" out and simply gut key protections for online speech and security. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/07/new-earn-it-bill-still-threatens-encryption-and-free-speech
Reminder: The Web isn't universal, or at least as universal as it could easily be. And its open standards don't mean much when only Google has the manpower to implement them all.
Sure it's ethically better than the other mainstream platforms, but that's a low bar! So, sure, target it as a stopgap. If you want something better, build an alternative or promote your favourite Linux distro.
I'll be building a Web that's truly universal, relying on external efforts to obtain feature parity.

Yes. This is how to recommend password managers.
EARN IT? More like BURN IT. 🔥🔥🔥 https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/07/new-earn-it-bill-still-threatens-encryption-and-free-speech
Yay, added a blogroll on my website, a list of blogs I subscribed to and like to read
Beware the Google Password Manager
The new EARN IT bill just blows a hole in Section 230 protections. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/07/new-earn-it-bill-still-threatens-encryption-and-free-speech
Wow, global #foss #hosting provider https://fosshost.org/
Support them if you can.
Oppose the EARN IT Act
Email has been discussed a lot lately. Perhaps it's because we all rely on it more during this period of lockdown. Maybe it's due to Hey being released? Or are we all realising that email is an old technology and we need to move on? Whatever the reason may be, people are talking about email; heres my take on it.
