In the current SV gold rush, your data is the gold. Enough time has gone by that easy gold from early small prospectors is gone. What remains are big unregulated operations strip-mining hillsides, filtering your gold from the muddy wash, leaving behind a bleak landscape. #privacy

Loved this analogy:
"Since then, decades of abstraction have stacked up like a pile of mattresses, and most of us just roll around on top." -Carl Tashian

Librem 5 by Purism. Made to be user Servicable. Tell the industry you are tired of phones intentionally made to be obselete after 18 months, and pick one up!
I stand with the FOSS movement so far as my OS and programs that tell me they are secure or protect my privacy are concerned. Games and other applications, however, can and should be closed source and proprietary. No other industry gives away their property for free, and does so under the banner of a socialists agenda masquerading as a security concern. Explain to me why no other industry needs to be held to the same standards. You can't. A programmer deserves to own his or her work.
This thread is very much like a musical gold mine:
