Hi,

I am a senior fullstack software dev I mainly do java & angular, with many other interests in ML, Security,... and Privacy ! Based in Paris, I want to help building opensource solutions/join a mozilla-like company, to help fighting against giant ad sellers, I dont know where to start.

thanks




Are you interested in the decentralized web space? You could join the New Tech Lab discord which is bridged with a slew of servers for communities and projects in IPFS, DWeb, indieweb

(I helped start this series of bridges across communities)

You may also want to check our Internet Archive’s DWeb Camp and monthly meetup (they have remote guests attend)


Thanks ! I'll have a look

I was thinking about home routers, preloaded and preconfigured for privacy (i.e. preventing all the spyware "smart" appliances and whatnots to call home).

I am about to buy big TV and want to get some "plug and protect" WiFi router where this thing could connect but not siphon out any data i am not aware of.


We’re working on technology to make data analytics secure and privacy-preserving, maybe we can chat: http://kiprotect.com, hn (at) kiprotect.com. We’re still bootstrapped and a very small team.


This is a tiny tiny step but feel free to join us at /r/KeepOurNetFree![1]
