REMINDER: Install HTTPS-Everywhere on your browser, if you haven't already!

HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox, Chrome, and Opera extension that encrypts your communications by always trying to redirect any HTTP to a HTTPS version of the same website. That way you won't accidentally access the insecure version of a website, if it has a secure tunnel set up.

This #protip💬 is especially important right now, because https://tilde.camp has HTTPS now! But I haven't managed to set it up to redirect from http to https on the server-side, so it's up to you to remember the httpS, or install HTTPS-Everywhere so you don't have to remember a thing! This means, although the dark forces can see that you're visiting tilde.camp, they won't be able to deduce what exactly you're doing there without great effort, so this makes your browsing much more secure.

HTTPS works on this site now!!!

All parts of tilde.camp are working with https. That means we could have password-protected areas of our website without the N$A grabbing up the password every time it's submitted over the internet. :)

A whole world of possibilities has opened up!

Announcing Operation: #whatsinit💬?

The chemical industry has gotten way out of hand. The industrial complex is so over-reaching that it's hard to find anything that isn't full of toxins, and harder to figure out exactly which toxins. Lobbyists have muddled the truth, and slowed progress in regulation, as usual.. and when a chemical does finally get regulated, chemists often just swap out one molecule for another, give it another name, and the show goes on.

This operation calls for seeking out the truth to what things contains what chemicals. This includes food, household items, natural products - everything. What's in it? What don't we know?

Label your posts in a way that organizes it by the items themselves, like @food💬, @lumber💬, @clothing💬, or whatever else you're exposing, and finally tag it with #whatsinit💬

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crypto-anarchism

Crypto-anarchism (or crypto-anarchy) is a form of anarchy accomplished through computer technology. Crypto-anarchists employ cryptographic software to evade persecution and harassment while sending and receiving information over computer networks, in an effort to protect their privacy, their political freedom, and their economic freedom.

One motive of crypto-anarchists is to defend against surveillance of computer networks communication. Crypto-anarchists try to protect against government mass surveillance, such as PRISM, Tempora, telecommunications data retention, the NSA warrantless surveillance, Room 641A, the FRA and so on. Crypto-anarchists consider the development and use of cryptography to be the main defense against such problems.

CMU "Secret Prisons" #TEDtalk💬

There are Secret Prisons in the USA. They are being used as a testing grounds for an especially brutal type of confinement, where the residents are in solitary confinement for long periods of time, and almost completely cut off from the outside world. They are primarily used for people who have been accused of "terrorism". They are disproportionately filled with muslims, and also include environmental activists. It is considered a "pilot program" that they might continue to roll out. It's very inhumane, and they are very secretive about it. This journalist is possibly the first person to speak publicly about it in 2015.

CMU stands for "Communications Management Unit" which is a very 1984 way of saying they basically keep everyone completely isolated from the outside world.

The Story of Stuff

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GorqroigqM

A well-made video that's just over ten years old now, that explores the story of our stuff from "cradle to grave". Where does it come from? Where does it go? And how does it affect the good people of Earth from the beginning to the end of it's journey?

A great reminder even for those who have seen the video before.

Apparently, the video spawned a greater push toward collective action using this video as a rallying cry, and this website as a rallying point: https://storyofstuff.org/
