🗨️ “Fast, lift, sprint, stretch, and meditate.
Build, sell, write, create, invest, and own.
Read, reflect, love, seek truth, and ignore society.
Make these habits. Say no to everything else.
Avoid debt, jail, addiction, disgrace, shortcuts, and media.
Relax. Victory is assured.”
🗨️ “Free people make free choices. Free choices mean you get unequal outcomes. You can have #freedom, or you can have equal outcomes. You can’t have both.”

I'm not in the least surprised.
Think of other popular messaging systems that claim to offer some kind of E2EE, but are proprietary #software: WhatsApp, Skype, FB Messenger, Viber, Threema, Line…
Distrust by default!
I am always amazed when folks even consider the alleged support for strong #encryption in those apps… the value of those claims is exactly zero.

Despite the fact that errors of investigation in Austrian authorities had made the attack possible in the first place and not a lack of digital surveillance powers. Politicians must start to understand that more surveillance will not lead to more security. That's why we fight any attempt for an encryption backdoor: https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/why-a-backdoor-is-a-security-risk/
To me, being a [not so] new #parent is like being in love, minus the sexual attraction and the intellectual companionship. It's a comparable feeling of devotion towards that new person, and of ecstatic bliss when thinking about them or seeing them laugh.
I have been saying for a while that we conscious #internet users or techies should be first to adopt, and eager to promote within our personal and professional circles, ethical open frameworks to support #web services and apps via micro-payments (instead of via advertising and surveillance). We already had #Brave. Now we also have #Coil. These are steps in the right direction (although I don't like those all-or-nothing memberships, kind of walled gardens of their own — I would prefer truly open, federated systems).
