They show that the # # program installed on a person's # collects data, and that Jumpshot repackages it into various different products that are then sold to many of the largest companies in the world.

NiceBlr reshared this.

As a person coming from a # background, information about # and # often feels alienating. Some things I'd really like to see:

1) # web pages (re: structure and language).

2) Reasonable # (re: hardware, OS's, firmware, etc.) -- NOT the same as conflicting compromises (i.e. Google).

3) # information -- e.g. freedom to revise code is irrelevant to most people, rather it's a matter of transparency.

4) # behavior -- i.e. not a boys' club.

yes. I am still not sure they need a separate formulation though, see e.g. here http://stop.zona-m.net/2019/10/comments-to-a-new-digital-manifesto.../

Feedback very welcome, of course

making a profile of you as a person and steal ones identity is brutally easy as it seems.. #tor #privacy #fingerprint #facialrecognition #degoogle #mischievous #integrity #torproject #news #bigdata
People on facebook share far too much information on them selves, with the rise of DNA services you pretty much hand over not just your medical history but also your medical future if it is written in DNA you may be more suitable to certain conditions, once sold to insurance companies they can set premiums accordingly.

If you post on facebook you smoke ( directly or otherwise ) I would suspect they do the same thing.

This is frightening. Just the thought of companies connecting the dots between ones digital fingerprint and ones physical fingerprint is horrifying.. #tor #privacy #fingerprint #facialrecognition #degoogle #mischievous #integrity #torproject #news #bigdata
