Update: It was good! Cool to see musicians crank up what a show can be when physics are more malleable and the only limit to stage theatrics is polygon count. Sadly though it was only attended by myself and a random named "Lord of all breakfast foods." :breadthink:

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.

It's an open source whistleblower submission platform that uses the Tor network to protect source anonymity. We're also working on a next-generation integrated workstation for journalists based on Qubes OS:

We're happy to be here! #introductions

Bash is a garbage cauldron of confusion and caveat with a syntax "designed" with all the elegance of taking a hammer to your keyboard.

A thing I had in mind in writing this is making it less about new tools and more about using the things people already have on their phones. You can redact photos and put them on Masto, Pixelfed or Matrix without needing to install more apps or be limited by a feature available in only one platform/app.

My guide on safely redacting photos with sensitive info on them on the go, fresh off the press. Boosts welcome and appreciated.

I'm on Snopes today talking about the "DC blackout" trending topic across several social network sites. It seemed to me to be a fairly complex operation spreading disinformation on all sides of the topic, entirely meant to sow discord. I even interviewed some of the people who got swept up in it for my research.

HEY, rubber bullets aren’t made out of rubber.

they are metal bullets coated with a thin layer of rubber. the cops obviously know this. they aren’t non lethal. they are not meant for close range.

they were invented as a way to break up riots by firing the bullet at the ground with the intent to bounce into people’s legs without much injury and are expected to produce contusions, abrasions, and hematomas in those cases but they can kill.

police that are shooting them point blank at people's heads are shooting to kill.
