There's a lot of handwringing these days about "ransomware attacks" where companies' data is encrypted & a ransom (usually bitcoin) is demanded to unencrypt it. The real injustice here is that a company is forced to *trust* their data to someone inherently untrustworthy. Any time you need to click "I ACCEPT" on a software product to access your data, you're in precisely the same situation. Most proprietary software biz modes are indistinguishable from ransomware models.

> Principles are more important than technologies
I agreed, and was expecting principles like:
* respect user privacy
* build accessible software
* release under #foss licenses
Instead, the post listed principles such as:
* data structures and algorithms
* Object-oriented design
* Caching and memory hierarchies.
… I'm not quite sure what that disconnect says about me, or about the author.
Hi folks! 9 years ago (to the day), the late Aaron Swartz made the first commit to SecureDrop, which was then called DeadDrop. Today the project is used by >70 media orgs around the world.

- LineageOS: DNS, GPS eta halako batzuetan G zerbitzarietara jotzen du, beste G zerbitzurik ez instalatuta (openGapps edo microG instalatzea aukeran)
- /e/: DNS, GPS eta halakoetan G zerbitzaririk ez, microG berez instalatuta
Laburbilduz: batek alde batetik G kendu, bestetik jarri; besteak alderantziz 🤷🏻♀️
