Some tips from the EFF (https://ssd.eff.org/en/module/attending-protest).
Before the Protest
- Enable full-disk encryption on your device
- Remove fingerprint unlock and FaceID
- Install Signal
- Back up your data
- Buy a prepaid, disposable phone
- Consider biking or walking to the protest (to avoid Automated License Plate Reader Systems)
During the Protest
- Take photos and videos without unlocking your device
- Enable airplane mode
After the Protest
- Scrub metadata on photos
"I became an Anarchist when I decided to drop the theories and stop seeking power. When I stopped concerning myself with those things I realised that true Anarchy is my nature. It is our nature. It is what we were doing before the theories arrived, it is what we were doing before we were encouraged to be in competition with each other."

PSA for iOS users: update your stuff ASAP, a major emergency patch iOS 14.8 has been issued
Wrote a Python script that uses doggo under the hood for seeing how effective resolver's filtering is against a list of domains.
Watched The Secret of NIMH last night after seeing it recommended enough. Yeah, it's really good. Still thinking about it.
Learned of nice command line tool called doggo.
> doggo is a modern command-line DNS client (like dig) written in Golang. It outputs information in a neat concise manner and supports protocols like DoH, DoT and DNSCrypt as well.
Quad9 DNS now has a site for validating if it's enabled or not.
Here’s a way (on iOS 14) of combining a WireGuard VPN with a separate encrypted DNS resolver: install a DNS profile (https://encrypted-dns.party) or app (DNSecure, NextDNS, iVerify) and then remove the DNS server(s) in your WireGuard profile.
Ok I need to find more "trancecore" after stumbling on Fail Emotions' "Reborn."
Nice, Passepartout now supports using a separate, encrypted DNS resolver with a VPN connection. Using a resolver like NextDNS with a VPN just became a bit easier on iOS.
Irregular remindar that whilst Signal might have issues, the fork of it "session" however has been developed by people with strong ties to alt-right shit, as documented here . Please remind yourself of that before(!) sharing their content.
I can always count on an episode of People Just Do Nothing to cheer me up 😄
Looks like PrivateStorage is finally launching later this year.
"PrivateStorage began as a joint venture between Least Authority and Private Internet Access. Together, we facilitated user testing as we investigated improvements to increase the usability of the application. At the end of 2020, the two companies mutually agreed to change their relationship and PrivateStorage is now 100% owned by Least Authority."
“[Mullvad’s] public DNS service (currently in beta) offers DNS over HTTPS (DoH) and DNS over TLS (DoT), with QNAME minimization and basic ad blocking. It has been audited by the security experts at Assured.”
Yup, it’s true 🥳 ✨
> The transparency group DDoSecrets says it will make Gab’s 70GB of passwords, private posts, and more available to researchers, journalists, and social scientists.
TIL about a subreddit for "TVs that are too high." I didn't realize this was a massive pet peeve of mine until now lol
Gab has an alleged data breach? Oh please be true! 🤞🏼
