Not long ago, the idea that western govts were engaging in illegal surveillance programs was widely dismissed.

Then we found out it was true — but nothing changed.

What seems impossibly dystopian, is possible.

It's up to us to stop it.

Hey guys, just a little update: this still hasn't changed.

Session runs on a decentralised network of community-run nodes, meaning:

- It can't be easily censored.
- It can't be taken down, even by us.
- It can't hand over your data, even to us.

But did you know that the network grows in size and strength every day?

1500 incoming! 🥳

I made this post this morning, and I'd like to make a followup:

I'd like to ask people here if anyone know of a good use-case for 5G. Something that would be an actual, measurable improvement compared to today.

So far I have only heard a single one, and that is that supposedly latency will be much better, making online gaming possible. What kind of latency can I expect to see?

Other than the ability to play fortnite on mobile (which, as far as I understand, people already do?), in what way is 5G actually going to be real gamechanger on the level of what marketing is claiming it will be?

@micahflee Hi Micah, just wanted to say it's amazing what you've done with OnionShare. I've been running a persistent .onion version of my own static site for a while now, but I'd love to also try the dropbox and chat features soon. The new docs also look great, and they're now on my reading list. 👍
