Daniel Hale, one of the great American Whistleblowers, was just moments ago sentenced to four years in prison. His crime was telling this truth: 90% of those killed by US drones are bystanders, not the intended targets.

We can onion-route it ourselves, on a sybil-resistant network of nearly 2000 nodes.

And soon — we will even be able to onion-route high quality voice and video calls.

Dear #foss developers, you encounter an open source project and feel enticed to check out their community. Discord is mentioned as the only place where the discussions take place.

Are you extremely bored - or deeply motivated to improve Codeberg? We have a number of open issues that should be
- ☑️ checked if still valid / reproducible / relevant (feel free to comment your opinion!)
- 🔍 check if already reported upstream
- 📝 be reported upstream if not and
- 🔗 in any case linked with the issue url in the Codeberg issue

If you got some free cycles, have a look at and see if you can assist in cleaning this up!

Thank you.

Facial recognition already stands against fundamental rights and values, but that isn’t stopping people from using it - it’s time the EU made the law clear and banned biometric mass surveillance

My latest novel is Attack Surface, a sequel to my bestselling Little Brother books. @washingtonpost called it "a political cyberthriller, vigorous, bold and savvy about the limits of revolution and resistance."
