#HelloWorld! The Swiss no-log VPN has officially joined the open source, federated social media network. As an organization focused on giving people greater control of their data, we wanted to join a social media network that respects this. We’ll be sharing toots about service updates, new VPN projects, and news on privacy.

#HelloWorld! As active members of the open-source community, ProtonMail supports open source projects like Mastodon. Mastodon’s decentralized nature reminds us of the days when the Internet was free and not under the control of a few monopolist giants. Our followers can look forward to toots about service updates, new projects, and news on privacy.

"The move is a sea change for Google and a further blow to the online ad industry’s longstanding contention that web tracking is mostly anonymous. In recent years, Facebook, offline data brokers and others have increasingly sought to combine their troves of web tracking data with people’s real names. But until this summer, Google held the line."

The 2.7.0 #Mastodon update added a site directory feature. You can see it by adding "/explore" to your instance's address, for example:

mastodon.social/explore

It's opt-in, so it only lists people who have asked to be listed.

You can add yourself like this:

1. Go to Settings
2. Go to Edit Profile
3. Add hashtags to your profile bio, to let people know what kind of stuff you like to talk about
4. Tick the "List This Account on the directory" box
5. Click on "save changes"

Sean is telling some uncomfortable truth about the bug bounty programs: how companies don't treat everybody the same and won't pay newbies anything if they can get away with it.

Hi @fsf as a member of the Free Software Foundation I'd like to hear your reply on @aral post found here: ar.al/2019/01/11/i-was-wrong-a

Would you please be so kind to respond to this no only here but also on your own website as this merits a well-written article in my opinion. Thank you!

The buffoon Trump's trade-war to "protect" the U.S. steel industry is going excellently...
RT @arappeport@twitter.com [NYTimes, Jan 4]:
US Steel's stock price is down 47% in the last year.

Oh yeah, that thing when my phone operator refused sending me any mobile data and I thought their LTE may have been locally broken?

After 4 phone calls totaling over an hour just waiting in queue, we did finally figure it out the day after:
They had been having an unidentified bug so that people that charged their prepaid cards with data-credits right then were assigned to an invalid form of subscription, that wasn't allowed any data-transfer at all,
so my buying credits specifically to upload the video in soc.ialis.me/@b9AcE/1013193440 to here made everything break.
Took the technician a bi over 10 minutes to fix my prepaid subscription once it had been identified I was affected by the bug.

Very stable systems! :-D

Just learned about this #firefox feature: "% <term>" in the location bar searches for <term> through your open tabs. Nice!
