Our privacy campaign, Privacy Yathra, website is live now privacyyathra.in.

The goal is to guide people on how they can protect their privacy in their daily lives and also to create a movement in India.

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped in the website.

Free Software Community of India needs your help. Running privacy respecting services is time consuming and costly. Please donate to us. Every rupee counts.

Visit fsci.in/donate for more details.

In a world ruled Big Entertainment and #BigTech, giving artists more #copyright is like giving bullied kids more lunch money - no matter how much lunch money you hand out, the kids are still going hungry. We have to neutralize the bully:

I think things as borders and countries are a thing of the past, isn't it kinda weird that on the one side of an imaginary line a certain set of rules(laws) are set and a few meters further something completly else. Not everywhere ofc but in many cases yes

Another thing I find weird is that other hoomans can tell me where I can and cannot go on this planet.. People forbid other people from moving where they want while we are all the same spieces with the same rights

@badrihippo runs this magazine called Snipette which posts interesting articles on science behind day to day life.

I just learnt science behind why airline food tastes bad snipettemag.com/tomato-juice/.

It's awesome. Check out snipettemag.com/.

By the way, if you think the artificial lens bit is hyperbole, think again. Quite a few years ago now I was sitting at dinner with some CEO of some startup that had developed a free tool they said helped people with dyslexia read more easily.

So, as I do, I asked him my favourite question: “how will you make money with this?”

He looked at me like I was rather daft before answering, matter of factly, “well, we know what you’re reading.”

Say no more, my friend. Say no more.

Today, you can choose not to drive a Tesla if you don’t want Elon Musk, Inc. knowing everywhere you go.

Tomorrow, you might have to limit where you live because you won’t live in a Google Home and reconsider having 20/20 vision again in exchange for the artificial lens company seeing everything you see.

Privacy is not something you can “vote with your wallet” on. We either protect it as a human right or we lose it altogether.

We frequently see encryption issues in #xmpp groups where not everyone is in each others contacts. So we are trying to test different app combinations to reproduce the issue reliably.

We will join an audio call and try different apps with test accounts.

Idea evolved in @prav community discussions

#Medium, the proprietary, #SiliconValley equivalent of free and open #fediverse app #WriteFreely, by the #billionnaire co-founder of #Twitter now has a fediverse server.

Now might be a good time to take a look at WriteFreely (writefreely.org/) and their hosted services Write.as (write.as/) and WriteFreely Host (writefreely.host/) and consider owning your own #blog on the fediverse instead of contributing to the walled gardens of the people who bequeathed you Twitter.

@Graycot First of all, thanks for asking. We highly appreciate it.

#Prav App is convenient without vendor lock-in (unlike #WhatsApp, #Telegram, #Signal etc). Except #quicksy, most apps are only convenient and come with vendor lock-in. We are complementing Quicksy with a more sustainable revenue and democratic governance model through a cooperative ownership and control. We are interoperable with Quicksy and happy to see if more people learn about Quicksy from us and join it instead of Prav too. You can learn more here prav.app/faq/#we-already-have-…
