It’s the yearly “talk loved ones out of buying surveillance technology” day in The U.S.

Be kind, but informative when someone mentions they want a home automation system. #google #amazon

Everyone please, please sign the save .ORG petition.

SaveDotOrg.org

.ORG seems to be the worst tld to sell. The people who want to use it are orgs that probably need it. ICANN has not given good reasons for why they are selling except for "we trust them" and pretty much just "we want the money."

Looking for volunteers who would be interested in translating privacytools.io to any variety of different languages (via Weblate). If you're interested shoot me a DM :)

There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.
savedotorg.org
I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.

Don't let powerful people abuse copyright and trademark law to censor NGOs. EFF is proud to stand with @RSI, @creativecommons, and @publicknowledge to defend .ORG. eff.org/deeplinks/2019/11/nonp

A for-profit company just bought the .ORG registry, shortly after ICANN removed price caps on .org domains. So... that’s just fantastic.

If anyone owns a .org domain I’d probably extend that registration out to the max 10 years before those prices jump. theregister.co.uk/2019/11/20/o

"Do you have something to hide?" is a manipulative rebuke to those that use #encryption.

It would help us all turn this conversation around. Because, the answer is: YES, we do have something to hide.

Things that we should hide, and must question why a government or business NEEDS access to:

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...

@theprivacyfoundation yeah, it's done. 50 more votes, but virtually unchanged from my last update. I wonder if "works better" took the lead because Twitter is a more feature-mature & closed platform, whereas the Mastodon users from your poll might be willing to put up with less features in exchange for a more trustworthy platform 🤷‍♂️

@theprivacyfoundation 94 votes so far on my Twitter poll, surprisingly different than your results here! Products working better takes the lead.

Who feels like they “have no choice” but to use websites and technology from organizations they do not trust?
