Tenemetry.

You know that the telemetry surveillance in your operating system is getting out of hand when even the German government writes 63 pages about it.

We knew the world would not be the same.

A few people laughed.

A few people cried.

Private Conversations.

As my children were growing, I could see that within a few years they and their friends would be wanting a mobile phone; they would want to use Internet services to chat, record personal videos and share experiences with friends.

And so I knew there was no way to get to have individual freedom and control from the current phone hardware or from its OS vendor (Apple or Google). I unfortunately knew there was no way to respect the digital civil rights of society by playing the silicon valley exploitation game.

Todd Weaver: Purism Origin Story

Political Remix.

Wir haben eine seltsame Beziehung von absolut libertären und absolut sozialistischen Idealen gemixt.
