I don't mean that they don't encrypt the data at rest. I mean that even if they do, they have the access to the key to decrypt it and have access to my plaintext passwords at any point.
I don't like it.

Some interesting ideas on "fixing" social media: looking outside of the West, hiring librarians, protecting researchers

Since my blog tagline for some time was a "Solarpunk Hacker", I began playing with some solarpunk and hacking symbols to create a logo. An early draft:
I like that it represents both Open Source, a sun, dynamic arrows and a person silhouette in the middle. Lots of symbollism.
Have you heard about FLOSS version of Meetup.org, https://mobilizon.org/en/ ?
My friends have just launched a #solarpunk game about sustainable technology on Kickstarter - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/radicalzz/noongk-game
Check it out!
I just remembered Ebocloud, a wonderful book I read a few years ago: a #postcyberpunk / #solarpunk vision of community-oriented transhumanism, a social network created to give people the sense of belonging and create healthy communities.
I can really recommend it.
Idea: in order to be considered a full-fledged vision of the future #solarpunk needs to encompass several subcultures. It needs to allow for conflicts inside, people with very different visions. How could a Solarpunk #transhumanism look like and how would it work with, how would it clash with local de-growth movements? What about globalisation vs localisation of education? Those things will not vanish overnight.
My talk "Solarpunk, Cyberpunk, Popculture: technological narratives tl;dr" will premiere on HOPE2020 this Monday 27th of July 15:00 CEST / 11 EST!
I'm slowly planning to start a blog focusing on #solarpunkReporting. Telling real stories, especially from the Global South in a #solarpunk way, seeing hope and patterns we can learn in the West in them.
I'm thinking going with a stand-alone blog and a medium.com mirror for bigger reach.
Do you have any recommendations, anything I should look into?
