I observe that on remains an obscure area for even the most tech-savvy among us.

Therefore I've drafted this summary table to help to navigate.

Note: SSE-AES and SSE-C are only supported by the Amazon S3 service.

The main misconception about defaults is that many users don't change them, because they assume that the developers put thought into the defaults. But the developers don't put ideal defaults there, because they assume the user knows better what they need and change the defaults.

This leaves us with bad defaults that aren't changed. 🤷

"Moxie Marlinspike On Decentralization" by David Rosenthal blog.dshr.org/2020/09/moxie-ma

The talk and blog post are both very interesting. I think advocates of decentralization (including myself!) should take these arguments seriously.

Face surveillance erodes everyone’s privacy, chills free speech, and has an outsized negative impact on minority communities. Governments should not use these tools. Rather, they must face the facts about how damaging this technology is to the people they have a duty to protect.

How I add an RSS feed:

- Ctrl-U to view source for the page
- Ctrl-F to search for "rss"
- if it exists, copy-paste it into my RSS reader

Please tell me there's a better way. 😛 My reader is NewsBlur BTW.

Last year, millions of people fought back the European Union’s #Article17. The fight isn’t over - we're pushing the EU member states to limit the use of automated filtering and protect users right's as they implement the law nationally. eff.org/deeplinks/2020/09/eff-

Recently, we removed Firefox Send because of security concerns and they took the service down. Today, they announced Send is dead.

We will also be removing Lockwise because Mozilla keeps killing projects after adoption, causing headaches for users.

"content-visibility: the new CSS property that boosts your rendering performance" by Chris Coyier css-tricks.com/content-visibil

"Seems like you’d have to be a pretty skilled perf nerd to get this right, and know how to look at and compare rendering profiles in DevTools."

I'm a huge perf nerd, and I can't really make heads or tails of how I'm supposed to use this new API. I'm going to hit the snooze button and wait for more examples and documentation to come out.

Cens-Ursula strikes again and tries to attack our security and privacy on the net with the @EU_Commission@twitter.com behind her. Thereby she ignores the mass protests against upload filter censorship machines. Yesterday the draft regulation was published: patrick-breyer.de/?p=593061&la

The one thing I hate about go programs: People writing stuff in go usually have install instructions: curl <url to some binary> > ./<random binary name> && chmod +x ./<random binary name> && sudo ./<random binary name>

Sure, we complain about curl | bash but this is EVEN WORSE!

Today I learned that signal.org doesn't deploy DNSSEC. 🙄 It's 2020…

I made a thing! 🎉
github.com/nileshtrivedi/bette

It's a browser extension that recommends "better" alternative products and services via in-page popups, based on community-curated lists. Available for all Chromium and Firefox-based browsers.

We live in times where the distributions costs are hampering the adoption of higher-quality (which could mean security, privacy, ethics, local etc) products. I am hoping that this extension can eventually be managed by orgs like IFF, EFF or FSF.

‪Due to I now advise all my clients to rebuild their applications to communicate over to avoid handshakes.‬

You can now get access to DNS logs of resolvers! Previously only had access to this data. This is a big move in the sphere!
