ようこそ!

Welcome to the new digital age

Introduction

In the modern age of the cyber world, everybody has to utilize it. But are you aware of how much information there is about you? Additionally, do you know that astronomically immense tech can efface and censor anything and sell your information to the highest bidder, even if it's for malicious purposes? 

Social Media

Did you know that Facebook does all of these things? While many people know Facebook as the social media that antivax flat earthers and dumb grandpas use to spread misinformation, they do censor some things, things that go against their agenda.(1.)There were Facebook groups against big tech in 2017 and in 2018 they all just vanished, and all the accounts in them were banned. There was no wrong content on there, no illegal things, just things that they personally don't like. In 2018 many people saw anti-vax advertisements. Everybody knows that vaccines are good for you in every single way, as long as they are tested. But someone paid them to show that questionable content. While now they have banned the ads, they have not banned the posts.(2.) In 2019 hackers took almost everybody’s data and had all their phone numbers, jobs, Full names, ages, and more, for the public eye. You can check if it hit you on https://haveibeenzucked.com/

Do you realize instagram and messenger are all owned by facebook. Twitter isnt safe either. The best social medias are anonymous, free, and non censoring. Two of these are Mastodon and neocities. While i like mastodon, i prefer neocities. It has 1 gigabyte of storage, its open source, linux based, and not only is it a social media, it is a website hoster. You get your own .neocities.org domain and you can do whatever you want with it.

Decentralization

The internet belongs to the people, not the big corpos. A big revolution is coming that will change it forever. Slowly people are taking it back with the decentralization. Some things to go over. It's not the type of revolution you're thinking of. We aren't rioting in the streets and giving people the guillotine. We are instead switching to Linux, using the deep web, and more.

Centralization-the concentration of control of an activity or organization under a single authority.

The first thing to do is use a VPN. A virtual private network (VPN) gives you online privacy and anonymity by creating a private network from a public internet connection. VPNs mask your internet protocol (IP) address so your online actions are virtually untraceable. Most important, VPN services establish secure and encrypted connections to provide greater privacy than even a secured Wi-Fi hotspot. The very best free one is called RiseUp.The best operating system to use is Linux but you can modify windows to act like Linux and be safer.

Everybody needs a web server. Having your own website will make sure that you are able to get your ideas across and helps destroy the big corporations. The best one on the clearnet is obviously neocities, and if you want to have it be on the onion network or freeweb, you should make your own miniserver. I am working on a raspberry pi miniserver that is sub 200 dollars and easy to build.

Advantages of decentralization:

Data Hoarding

You need to learn about data hoarding. Data hoarding is the practice of archiving data so that if it ever goes missing then you will be able to view it. You can practice it with games, anime, Linux ISOs, Documents, or whatever stuff youre into! You will need some Hard Disk Drives, Solid State Drives, Flash memory, and more! For flash memory such as USB drives and Micro SD cards, you can make a 3D printed wallet insert for them. On such items you should include but not be limited to important documents, cryptocurrency keys, encryption keys, and more. Remember to not share it with anybody even if you think they are trusted.

Backup all your data on physical media. Use usb drives and hard disk drives for long term data storage, and solid state drives and SD Cards for fast storage. Document everything about you and your computer such as encryption keys, passwords, important information digitally on a physical media but HAVE IT ENCRYPTED.
