>Two years ago, newspapers including The New York Times, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal -- the latter published by Dow Jones Media Group parent company Dow Jones -- called Brave's ad blocking "illegal."

What meaningful alternatives are there? Chrome is botnet, and Mozilla is infested with SJWs whose only concept of privacy involves aiding radical left wing cells through RiseUp. Thank God the EFF supports Tor otherwise I would have no hope in left-leaning privacy advocacy in the United States at all.

Brave signals a change towards a privacy conscious right wing movement in the United States. Brendan Eich was fired for Mozilla for donating $1000 to a political foundation that opposed gay marriage. That form of censorship alone makes me want to support whatever Eich does. Not only that, Brave is a good browser in addition to the social aspect.



Brave doesn't block ads, it spies on your habits and replaces a site's ads with its own.

His backpack was stolen, he never carried a laptop and the one he had is at his sister's.

As far as I know, all of his relatives are close to Las Vegas, NV, so no.



i'm in portland. was on rizon. got some tips. any other info you may have about his habits, whereabouts, clothing etc will be helpful. i might go out on foot tomorrow to find him. probably not today, tho, since nobody seems to have info



>downtown library pretty sure you can be on all fucking day

I think it's 4 hours If you have a library card, he can't get one because he has no ID, so it's limited to 15 mins



i called the libraries and talked to them. 15min w/ no ID. IRC ppl said his ID and phone were in his bookbag that got stolen.

does anyone know anything else about his habits? does he go chill at McDs? park? walk around and beg for cash?

Telegram Founder Pledges Millions in Bitcoin For VPNs and “Digital Resistance”


<A massive wave of action to block messaging service Telegram resulted in widespread collateral damage yesterday after Russian authorities ordered millions of IP addresses blocked across the country. But the efforts have only lit a fire under Telegram founder Pavel Durov, who has pledged to donate millions of dollars in bitcoin to VPN providers as part of his "Digital Resistance".

>Starting yesterday, Russia went to war with free cross-platform messaging app Telegram. Authorities including the FSB wanted access to Telegram’s encryption keys, but the service refused to hand them over.

>As a result, the service – which serviced 200,000,000 people in March alone – came under massive attack. Supported by a court ruling obtained last Friday, authorities ordered ISPs to block huge numbers of IP addresses in an effort to shut Telegram down.

>Amazon and Google, whose services Telegram uses, were both hit with censorship measures, with around 1.8 million IP addresses belonging to the Internet giants blocked in an initial wave of action. But the government was just getting warmed up.

>In an updated posted by Pavel Durov to Twitter from Switzerland late last night, the Telegram founder confirmed that Russia had massively stepped up the fight against his encrypted messaging platform.

>Within the last two days, Russia blocked over 15 million IP addresses in attempts to ban Telegram on its territory. Regardless, Telegram remained available for the majority of Russia’s residents #digitalresistance

>Of course, 15 million IP addresses is a huge volume, particularly since ‘just’ 14 million of Telegram’s users are located in Russia – that’s more than one IP address for each of them. As a result, there are reports of completed unrelated services being affected by the ban, which is to be expected given its widespread nature. But Russia doesn’t want to stop there.

>Within the last two days, Russia blocked over 15 million IP addresses in attempts to ban Telegram on its territory. Regardless, Telegram remained available for the majority of Russia’s residents #digitalresistance

it's called ip ranges you hyperbolic nigger faggot

>“Despite the ban, we haven’t seen a significant drop in user engagement so far, since Russians tend to bypass the ban with VPNs and proxies. We also have been relying on third-party cloud services to remain partly available for our users there,” Durov wrote on Telegram.

they've been saying this same shit every year since 1990. if russians are all bypassing these bans why are they even there in the first place? either for western propaganda to say how bad russia is or because these policies are just the result of some incompetent department



we don't care about your stupid little competition with russia, who don't even notice your existence, polnigger



because they have retarded governments that just block everything, like as in OP's post. it takes 5 seconds to setup a VPN and get around it with no reprocussion

There's backdoors alright, not just wd though. I remember a list from the cia leak that had 9 hd manufacturers listed, for firmware backdoors. Do the drives come backdoored? Maybe not, but it's easy to get one backdoored because the firmware is rewritable.

You can get a serial terminal on some of the arm hd controller chips, perfect backdoor platform tbh. What I used to do is cut the pin on the controllers memory that makes it writable, but now the memory is integrated and the chips freak out because they can't log things like power on hours. They could have used it as cache so it had to be writable but it was just firmware that should never change and yet it was writable. A firmware update jumper could fix this bullshit.

Someone should make a firmware that blocks all firmware updates, at least we could consolidate to one or two backdoors.



Yeah I remember reading about that and how they'd intercept shipments. But since I don't have a security clearance and am not a cp collector I'm gonna guess they wouldn't bother spying on me. Too much work for no reward.



>but it's easy to get one backdoored because the firmware is rewritable.

wait doesn't that mean it's rewritable by the user too?



Yes, some serious hacking might be needed because the process is different for manufacturers and models. I wish the memory was still separate because you could do a dump without going through the (((controller))). The system running on a hd controller is sophisticated enough to have a self deleting backdoor or one that deletes itself if it detects an image dump read pattern. There was a good defcon talk about this "running linux on a hard drive" or something. There are no coincidences here.

>New Google algorithm restricts access to left-wing, progressive web sites

By Andre Damon and Niles Niemuth

27 July 2017

In the three months since Internet monopoly Google announced plans to keep users from accessing “fake news,” the global traffic rankings of a broad range of left-wing, progressive, anti-war and democratic rights organizations have fallen significantly.

On April 25, 2017, Google announced that it had implemented changes to its search service to make it harder for users to access what it called “low-quality” information such as “conspiracy theories” and “fake news.”

The company said in a blog post that the central purpose of the change to its search algorithm was to give the search giant greater control in identifying content deemed objectionable by its guidelines. It declared that it had “improved our evaluation methods and made algorithmic updates” in order “to surface more authoritative content.”

Google continued, “Last month, we updated our Search Quality Rater Guidelines to provide more detailed examples of low-quality webpages for raters to appropriately flag.” These moderators are instructed to flag “upsetting user experiences,” including pages that present “conspiracy theories,” unless “the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.”

Google does not explain precisely what it means by the term “conspiracy theory.” Using the broad and amorphous category of fake news, the aim of the change to Google’s search system is to restrict access to alternative web sites, whose coverage and interpretation of events conflict with those of such establishment media outlets as the New York Times and the Washington Post.

By flagging content in such a way that it does not appear in the first one or two pages of a search result, Google is able to effectively block users’ access to it. Given the fact that vast amounts of web traffic are influenced bPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>HTTP gateways let you download any hash through your browser without running IPFS

>can stream video files in mpv or VLC (though it's not recommended unless the file has a lot of seeds)

How it Works

When you add a file, the files are cryptographically hashed and a merkle tree is created. These hashes are announced by the IPFS client to the nodes in the network. (The IPFS team often describes the network as a "Merkle forest.") Any user can request one of these hashes and the nodes set up peer connections automatically. If two users share the same file then both of them can seed it to a third person reqPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

In a Leaked Memo, Apple Warns Employees to Stop Leaking Information


>Apple Inc. warned employees to stop leaking internal information on future plans and raised the specter of potential legal action and criminal charges, one of the most-aggressive moves by the world’s largest technology company to control information about its activities.

>The Cupertino, California-based company said in a lengthy memo posted to its internal blog that it "caught 29 leakers," last year and noted that 12 of those were arrested. "These people not only lose their jobs, they can face extreme difficulty finding employment elsewhere," Apple added. The company declined to comment on Friday.

>Apple outlined situations in which information was leaked to the media, including a meeting earlier this year where Apple’s software engineering head Craig Federighi told employees that some planned iPhone software features would be delayed. Apple also cited a yet-to-be-released software package that revealed details about the unreleased iPhone X and new Apple Watch.

>Leaked information about a new product can negatively impact sales of current models, give rivals more time to begin on a competitive response, and lead to fewer sales when the new product launches, according to the memo. “We want the chance to tell our customers why the product is great, and not have that done poorly by someone else,” Greg Joswiak, an Apple product marketing executive, said in the memo.

>The crackdown is part of broader and long-running attempts by Silicon Valley technology companies to track and limit what information their employees share publicly. Firms like Google and Facebook Inc. are pretty open with staff about their plans, but keep close tabs on their outside communications and sometime fire people when they find leaks.

>Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg last week talked about her disappointment with leakers. In 2016, Google fired an employee after the person shared internal posts criticizing an executive. The employee filed a lawsuit claiming their speech was protected under CaliPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Apple assigns new engineers to fake products for a year or two before they let them work on anything that's actually real. It's not a big stretch to imagine that they'd spy on people too. It's probably all in the thousand page agreement you sign when you get a job there.

SICP is honestly one of the best to get the core concepts of programming down which you can apply to really any language. The C book is the best for learning C, but SICP enforces a ton of very good general programming concepts. The whole approach is more autistic, but the results from learning it are very useful to your skill as a programmer. It takes some effort but it's a very good learning tool and well written.

Biggest advantage that proprietary software has over free software is marketing.

Too many FLOSS devs have unrealistic expectation that people would use some software just because it is superior in technical sense. Meanwhile proprietary software people invest into tutorials and shit that teaches people how to use their software.

By the time that people find out about FLOSS they are already used to proprietary counterpart and find FLOSS unintuitive unless FLOSS copies proprietary software design. If FLOSS creates copy of proprietary software design then there is no need to switch to it because you do not gain anything by switching.

tl;dr: FLOSS people need better marketing.
