Disappointed that Firefox is giving Cloudflare user DNS resolution data by default via DoH. I trust my ISP but if I didn't, I'd use a trusted VPN to protect *all* my traffic. DoH is just a DNS-only VPN. What's worse, if you do use a VPN for #privacy FF will still leak your DNS data to Cloudflare by default. blog.mozilla.org/futurerelease

Ask yourself why all these companies are fighting each other to be your default DNS provider. Why do their "privacy" solutions always give them your data instead? It's valuable data and it's easy to control it yourself. #privacy linuxjournal.com/content/own-y

Why is it that the best minds in our industry seem unable to improve security without creating products that coincidentally give their employer more control over people and their data? Vendor lock-in is preventing real innovation in infosec.

@kyle Generally agree, but the problem is bigger than vendor lock-in, monopoly or any form of the "crooked capitalism" illusion. "The industry" is not trying to improve security, they're trying to increase profit. Everything takes a back seat to profit, under any form of capitalism. That probably ignites your pattern recognition neurons.

@zeh This is why Purism incorporated as a Social Purpose Corporation, specifically so we could put our social purpose ahead of profits.

@kyle That's nice, it signals your intention, provides some reassurance, and I guess it makes you a harder target for buying and changing your direction and goals. But, ultimately, you still operate under market rules and pressure. Ultimately, you don't get to make the rules, you can't just declare your way out of an economic system.
