FB + your privacy

Get your loved ones off Facebook by Salim Virani.

It’s not just what Facebook is saying it’ll take from you and do with your information, it’s all the things it’s not saying, and doing anyway.

We don’t even need to click ‘I agree’ anymore. They just change the privacy policy and by staying on Facebook, you agree.

Oopsy!

Support DIME

I am an avid defender of human rights – privacy for everyone (which is part of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights – Article 12) and I just discovered this upcoming service: DIME (Dark Internet Mail Environment).

_______

I wanted to ‘see’ who was behind and found these articles:

Secrets, lies and Snowden’s email: why I was forced to shut down Lavabit by Ladar Levison. It is a shocking read! Instead of relenting (and becoming complicit) to NSA / FBI and the whole US legal machine descending on him to get his ‘encryption keys’.. he shut down the service and blew away his company + 10 years of hard work.

Lavabit loses contempt of court appeal over Edward Snowden encryption keys

_______

Wow talk about convictions – this guy is the real-deal – because in the process – he lost everything. I cannot imagine the stress of going through such an ordeal.

But he stood his ground – and is.. rebuilding it with Silent Circle – a purveyor of secured apps.

I profoundly admire that.

Never offline??

How Apple (watch) is Invading Our Bodies by Lev Grossman.

Like a pushy date, the Apple Watch wants to get intimate with us in a way we’re not entirely used to or prepared for. This isn’t just a new product, this is technology attempting to colonize our bodies.

Once you’re OK with wearing technology, the only way forward is inward: the next product launch after the Apple Watch would logically be the iMplant.

Never offline?? Not on my watch.

WATTM by beeple

We are the Transparent Machines™

Our society is obsessed with the conflicting concepts of transparency and privacy. Explores the contradictory nature of our actions and beliefs regarding transparency.

Must see!

Post-Snowden

Inspired by Orwell’s fiction. Built for the post-Snowden reality. I backed ‘1984’ Stealth Fashion.

_______

LOVE it – the copy is amazing – video is superb – as like someone said: the ‘idea’ could be start of a new trend.

It’s time to #GoDark.

Facebook <./DELETION.>

How to completely delete Facebook from your life by Kyli Singh

Becoming Facebook-free requires more steps than just hitting the delete button. Here’s how to make sure your account is gone for good.

_______

If you’re serious about deleting Facebook ready yourself for some serious work.

Bookmark(ed) step-by-step for later use.

$$$ocial media

so.cial definitions:

Adjective: relating to or designed for activities in which people meet each other.

Noun: an informal social gathering, especially one organized by the members of a particular club or group.

_______

Well it seems that being a ‘social media’ user just reached another low. In past week, both Path and foursquare split their apps in 2 – without any consultation – or advance warnings.

_______

In the case of Path, particularly aggravating – is that all private messages were deleted and moved to ‘ephemeral’ aka lasting 24h – and msg to go through ‘other’ app Talk.

Never was offered to do preemptive back-up. The loss is terrible. Many important discussions – some critical were tossed out without any regards to ‘us’. I feel deeply betrayed. And I am not alone.

_______

Tested install and guess what? App asked (again?!?!?) to have access to my Contacts – with a meager reassurance that ‘they would never contact them before letting me know about it.’

Yeah sure.

(And it seems like the 800k$ fine didn’t ram much wisdom.)

_______

Even ‘Premium’ members got no ‘special’ treatment. Everyone and everything wiped out. So much for respecting their mission of providing a secure private network where to have ‘meaningful conversations’.

Dave Morin (ex-Facebook) and team have dropped the ball in a majestic way – alienating their loyal ‘supporters’ (for in the end – who cares for stickers really).

Little do they know – I won’t renew (and many others won’t either) – a sustantial drop of income is to expect.

_______

As for foursquare – it’s simple and drastic: I couldn’t check-in anymore. Period. Like it or not I HAD to download and start using Swarm.. (because they are preparing a ‘new’ 4sq). No option. Get going girl.

That logo color reminds me of Gowalla which was swallowed by Frackbook – and did the same to all their users. We were dumped out of the service overnight.

_______

I am hereby solemnly and immediately requesting a rewording of Social media to $ocial media.
