I need every infosec person to understand that surveillance capitalism is structural, not individual, and we are not going to ethically-consume our way out of it please and thank

It's been many months since I've really seriously worked on any of my projects, in the mean time I had some fairly major life upheavals (getting covid, quitting drinking, starting therapy)

But lately I've finally been slowly getting back into it & reorganizing my thoughts. I think I do want to keep working on creating my own homebrew server oriented software project, but I think I'm going to start over at this point. Greenhouse was a bit of a failure and I think I need to completely redesign.


Minneapolis folks, I am planning on hosting a free workshop on how to to make a website from scratch. (HTML and CSS)

Check out more details and mark times you would be available @ framadate.org/ABPiTpWWEzqNWmo6

Also, plz boost if you are in the area. Thanks 🧡
