"How to Live Without Google" - and getting it all wrong



In a failed attempt to improve users personal privacy, DuckDuckGo jumps from the frying pan straight into the fire. With the motto
Remove Google from your life? Yes, it can be done!
they give ten advices, most of them very bad. Also, they are using inexact wording by calling things free, when they are "free as in beer", but not necessarily "free as in freedom". I comment on their three worst recommendations:
Google Search -> DuckDuckGo (free)
Let's start off with the easiest one! Switching to DuckDuckGo not only keeps your searches private but also gives you extra advantages such as our bang shortcuts, handy Instant Answers, and knowing you're not trapped in a filter bubble.
I understand, that they advertise their own service here. And while I do believe, that DuckDuckGo does not cheat and keeps your searches private, as a user, one cannot prove it. In any case, one just replaces one centralised search machine with another one. Better use a decentralised service, such as meta search engine Searx.
Android -> iOS (paid)
The most popular alternative to Android is of course iOS, which offers easy device encryption and encrypted messaging via iMessage by default. We also have tips to increase privacy protection on your iPhone or iPad.
This is certainly the worst recommendation in their list. I had to check the date of the article, when I read this. Aprils Fool's Day? I'm certainly not a fan of Android and I'm not an Android user anymore, but going for a much more restrictive jail is just stupid. Android has at least relatively free versions, e.g. Replicant. iOS, in contrast, is a carcel with beautifully painted walls. Very high walls with perfectly styled barbed wire on top. Even the most proprietary variants of Android let you at least install free software from F-Droid.org.

If you don't want to use Android anymore, like myself, better go for a free alternative, e.g. support the Librem 5 crowdfunding, or the Pyra handheld or the ZeroPhone, all three running the free Debian operating system.
Google Allo -> Signal (free)
There are several services offering private messaging but, as we've mentioned before, Signal gets our recommendation. It offers free, end-to-end encryption for both messages and private calls. It's also recommended by Edward Snowden and renowned security expert Bruce Schneier, among others.
Again, they recommend to leave one centralised service for another one. And one, that even wants your phone number, otherwise you can't use it. And one, that does not yet have a decent client for Linux. There are messengers around that are federated or completely decentralised, that do not force you give them your phone number, and that have native clients for all major operating systems. My recommendation is XMPP. If you are on Linux, use e.g. Gajim, on Android the best app is probably Conversations, for iOS there is ChatSecure and so on. Alternatives to XMPP are Ring, Matrix and more recently Wire.

Benjamin Franklin wrote in 1755:
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
One should also not give up libre software, which is essential in many ways, to purchase a little perceived safety or privacy through non-free or centralised services.

Google a évité 4 milliards d'euros d'impôts grâce à ses acrobaties en 2015



Google combine deux techniques : le "Double Irish" et le "sandwich hollandais".

1/ "Double Irish" renvoie à l'idée d'un jeu entre deux sociétés irlandaises, dont l'une est à moitié bermudienne :
- l'une, Google Ireland Ltd, engrange le chiffre d'affaires réalisé hors des Etats-Unis ;
- elle verse ensuite des royalties à l'autre, Google Ireland Holdings, qui détient les droits de propriété intellectuelle du groupe, hors #Etats-Unis, basée en #Irlande mais régie par le droit des Bermudes

Le fisc irlandais devrait prélever des impôts, à la source car cette seconde société n'est pas européenne, et juridiquement basée dans un paradis fiscal, sauf que :

2/ grâce au "sandwich hollandais"
- Google Ireland Ltd verse sa redevance à une coquille néerlandaise, Google Netherland BV (sans prélèvement à la source parce qu'on reste entre Européens)
- Google Netherland BV la reverse à son tour à Google Ireland Holdings (sans prélèvement à la source car les #Pays-Bas ne l'imposent pas la propriété intellectuelle).

Why we don't publish at the Play Store



We got some requests recently, asking, why we do not publish #dandelion at the #GooglePlay.So here are our main reasons, why we don't plan to uploadthe app there currently.

First of all, we do not comply with Googles terms of service. Having to pay ~25€ to Google who did not write the app and does not respect your freedom nor your privacy on its platforms (Youtube, GMail...) just doesn't feel right. We believe, that our userbase is well aware of the privacy concerns that come with using Google's Services, so many diaspora* users actually get their apps through F-Droid (which is great). Second, if a user that does not know about F-Droid yet wants to use dandelion* and searches for it, they'll hopefully find out about the F-Droid project and may get in touch with free software that way. So by not publishing to Google Play, we hope to get more people to understand, use and appreciate free and open source software.

If you find dandelion* on the Play Store, please be aware, that you likely just found a version built by someone else. We can not guarantee that such a version has not been tampered with in terms of #malware, so we highly discourage you to use it. It should be clear, that we'll never charge you any money for using, downloading, sharing or modifying the app. Note also, that we won't support those versions.

If you want to dontate to the project to support the developers, and keep them motivated, please feel free to contact us :D As always, you can help us by submitting bug reports, code and/or translations on github and crowdin.
PS: We maintainers (@gsantner and @vanitasvitae) will soon have more time again to actively work on the app. The last weeks we were distracted with educational work, so here is some background information:

@gsantner was working on another FLOSS app called Froody, which lets you share (naturally growing) food and other things with others. He hopes to enable people to live a more sustainable life. The main idea is to share to and help other people by e.g. sharing pears, which would rot anyway if unused.Everything is built with international use in mind. The app is available at https://github.com/froodyapp/froody-android, and is currently available in #English, #German and #Japanese. Also translatable on Crowdin. He also writes his bachlor thesis about Open Source and Android, which will be completed in summer and likely to be released in an appropiate free license.

@vanitasvitae is writing his bachelor thesis about an #OMEMO module for #Smack, a #XMPP library used by many free messengers like #Jitsi or #Kontalk.
He hopes to enable those messengers to #encrypt your communication end-to-end using the OMEMO protocol introduced by #conversations.
He'll also attend #FOSDEM in #brussels by the way, so if you are there you might meet him and chat a little ;)

Sharing welcome!

#Feedback and seeking your advises



I did it !

Joining D* was the first step of many to win back my #privacy online and stop supporting bad application. Long time this was waiting inside me.
Since it could be useful to others and because I still need some #help to solve some remaining issues, here is a brief "before/after" list :

- #Gmail ~~ #Posteo.de
Most difficult service to replace. This one is for me the best equation including social responsibility, privacy, email extension convenience, user interface not too far behind Gmail
- #Drive #storage ~~ #Owncloud at ocloud.de, free bundle for now
- #Drive #collaboration ~~ #Framapad for text and have to try framacalc to see if powerful enough for sheet
- #Drive #share ~~ #Framadrop for temporary sharing and my owncloud otherwise
- #Agenda ~~ ... my notebook, no IT, just some paper and the #bulletjournal approach
- #Google ~~ #DuckDuckGo
- #Hangout / #Skype ~~ #Framatalk based on #JitsiMeet
- #Chat ~~ no solution :'( someone has one ? #HELP
- #GoogleMap ~~ #Openstreetmap
- #Pocket ~~ #Framabag based on #Wallabag
- #Facebook / #Twitter ~~ #Diaspora*
- #Smartphone ~~ my #Fairphone let you choose and #android with our without #googleapps, I'll just reset it !
- was already using #Firefox (ouf ! at least, one was right ^^)

If you have any suggestion or solution for the chat / instant messaging, feel free :) I really don't know how to get rid of messenger or whatsapp... Using them a lot and removing those will make a severe cut with my friends and family...

The Fight Over Email Privacy Moves to the Senate

The House passed the Email Privacy Act (H.R. 387) yesterday, bringing us one step closer to requiring a warrant before law enforcement can access private communications and documents stored online with companies such as Google, Facebook, and Dropbox. But the fight is just beginning. We’ve long called for pro-privacy reforms to the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), the outdated law that provides little protection for “cloud” content stored by third-party service providers. H.R. 387 would codify the Sixth Circuit’s ruling in U.S. v.

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year from Katharsisdrill to Diaspora



I hope that Trump will make peace with Russia and China - that the crazy surveillance-laws we have seen lately will be removed - that we will immediately stop using fossil fuels and begin biking happily - that friendliness and tolerance will prevail - that we will share the riches - that people will leave Facebook-Google-Twitter-Apple-MS and come to the alternatives - that we will begin colonizing the solar-system - all that and much more I hope for 2017.

I will commence all this New-Year-Goodness by buying some good beer for ​@Mikkel Munch Mortensen - the podmin of Datataffel. Any list of New Years resolutions should start with a Podmin.

Happy new year!

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year from Katharsisdrill to Diaspora



I hope that Trump will make peace with Russia and China - that the crazy surveillance-laws we have seen lately will be removed - that we will immediately stop using fossil fuels and begin biking happily - that friendliness and tolerance will prevail - that we will share the riches - that people will leave Facebook-Google-Twitter-Apple-MS and come to the alternatives - that we will begin colonizing the solar-system - all that and much more I hope for 2017.

I will commence all this New-Year-Goodness by buying some good beer for ​@Mikkel Munch Mortensen - the podmin of Datataffel. Any list of New Years resolutions should start with a Podmin.

Happy new year!

Google a évité 4 milliards d'euros d'impôts grâce à ses acrobaties en 2015



Google combine deux techniques : le "Double Irish" et le "sandwich hollandais".

1/ "Double Irish" renvoie à l'idée d'un jeu entre deux sociétés irlandaises, dont l'une est à moitié bermudienne :
- l'une, Google Ireland Ltd, engrange le chiffre d'affaires réalisé hors des Etats-Unis ;
- elle verse ensuite des royalties à l'autre, Google Ireland Holdings, qui détient les droits de propriété intellectuelle du groupe, hors #Etats-Unis, basée en #Irlande mais régie par le droit des Bermudes

Le fisc irlandais devrait prélever des impôts, à la source car cette seconde société n'est pas européenne, et juridiquement basée dans un paradis fiscal, sauf que :

2/ grâce au "sandwich hollandais"
- Google Ireland Ltd verse sa redevance à une coquille néerlandaise, Google Netherland BV (sans prélèvement à la source parce qu'on reste entre Européens)
- Google Netherland BV la reverse à son tour à Google Ireland Holdings (sans prélèvement à la source car les #Pays-Bas ne l'imposent pas la propriété intellectuelle).

Ich baue gerne meine Linux Kernel selbst und nehme auch alles an security features mit. Beim Kernel 4.9 habe ich auch mal die TCP Erweiterung (BBR) von Google eingebaut.

Wer seinen Kernel auch mal etwas härten möchte kann hier mal schauen: http://kernsec.org/wiki/index.php/Kernel_Self_Protection_Project

Why would someone invite a #google microphone into their home to snoop on them? Even though it hasn't been revealed yet, google probably has a link directly to the #NSA just like yahoo. Free isn't really free. #Privacy. #Speaker

YouTube: Google Home - Official Ad (Patrick Meneguzzo)

Introduced by Google in May 18
 
Soon the major #android phone makers will not have to make their own versions of these programs as their "get out of jail" card from the predatory agreements they must sign with #google to bundle their apps on phones.
 
It is good news that finally #signal moves further away from #google. Let's first welcome that. Even if I'm not a big fan of #signal, this will mean that all #signal users won't be forced to rely on Google services.

As said several times here, it still relies on phone numbers and centralized non-free servers, so I will maintain that #signal is a popular step towards safer communications, but we (hackers, crypto anarchists, developers, infosec people) won't stop here. Smart balanced p2p/federated protocols must be the way to think about communications to let anyone self-host of become an active peer in the network.
 
Remember if you run a SSL site and use #wosign or #startssl that your users will not be able to connect soon! My chrome already can not connect to some pods and sites as they are distrusted. Get your self set up with #letsencrypt now!

Check out https://acme.sh to make it super simple to get letsencrypt set up.

Pass it on!

Not sure how long till distros and OS's follow, but if users can not access the sites its pretty much dead.
