What's the one thing every web user can do to fight ?

I've started a new website to send a message to Google that we prefer the internet without them

Hello Fediworld 👋

most of the #switchingsocial website is restored - have a look:

switching.software
(or swiso.org for short)

I want to thank @gemlog for preparing the web-archive version and @LuKaRo for extracting the missing pages from the Google Cache. Would have taken so much longer without you two 🙂

What is browser fingerprinting? How is it used? What is Tor Browser doing against it? Find out in this guest post by Pierre Laperdrix

"Any script running in your browser can silently build a fingerprint of your device without you even knowing about it."

Very exciting call for research:

Mozilla has an interest in potentially integrating more of Tor into Firefox 🔥

Tor has never been deployed at this scale, so there are a lot of considerations to research before giving this a try.

Folks, I’m running out of bandwidth on the plane again. Will be landing in Sydney in a few hours and demonstrating Site.js at the IxDA meetup (if I manage to make sense right after a 24-hour trip – will be dropping my bags off at the hotel and heading straight over) :)

Amazon has unsafe products on its digital shelves. That needs to change.

One place to start? Mandate privacy policies for *all* internet-connected devices for sale on the platform.

Sound smart? Sign Mozilla's petition to Amazon: t.co/SGlQEjZHvc tweeted by @mozilla

Yikes. "The fingerprints of over 1 million people, as well as facial recognition information... was discovered on a publicly accessible database for a company used by the likes of the UK Metropolitan police, defence contractors and banks." theguardian.com/technology/201

peeps:

If I want to block several from my website is it excessive/pointless to use:

1.
2. .txt and
3. <meta name> in the header?

Need to send a clear message to their bots that they ain't welcome.

Belt / braces / another belt approach seems like it's making things crystal.

Thanks :)

Another day, another time that Facebook admits to stealing all your data, even supposed encryption in WhatsApp is worth nothing if they download your chats in an unencrypted fashion back to their servers. Stop using their shit. Please! There are alternatives. Get rid of it. Everything. They'll never learn if people don't make them. Please don't use Instagram, don't use WhatsApp, don't use Facebook. It's much worse for you than you might want to imagine.
