Why are people only concerned with the five ey…

A lot of people talk about how you should avoid hosting anything from the five eyes, but aren’t the nine and fourteen eyes just as bad? Some might make the argument that the agencies specifically involved in the five eyes are not trustworthy, but in my opinion that applies to any government agency, so it’s not really a convincing argument.Is there any reason people are specifically afraid of the five eyes rather than the fourteen eyes? Or even any surveillance agency for that matter?

Decided to move uBlock Origin into Medium Mode…

You don’t realise how many 3rd party domains that something as simple as a news article connects to!From Google Analytics to Disqus Ads to Facebook- I’m really happy to have switched over and it’s actually quite nice to see what is being blocked, and slowly getting better and better at fixing a site breakage.Would strongly recommend Medium Mode if you are willing to unbreak some sites occasionally (really easy once you get a hang of it). I’m also running it with all filter lists enabled so I’ve got double protection when web browsing.It’s just small things that add up to make a large impact, in my eyes. From changing your browser; to your search engine; to deleting your Facebook or Google account…

Eastern culture approach to privacy and anonym…

How is the eastern culture attitude towards anonymity and privacy online? I would expect that since eastern culture is less individualistic and more community-oriented, there is less ethical and moral problems with people being massively tracked and surveilled by their governments and corps – to some extent already happening with the social scoring pilot programs in China [1].​If this hypothesis is correct, what does this mean for the future of technology and our society? How can two completely almost ideological perspectives on individual privacy co-live in a globalised tech world? A world in which it is expectable that multiple protocols and networks will co-exists, what how to make sure that the user requirements are met on both sides? Will the tech chasm between western and eastern societies accentuate with time and create an organic need for platforms and networks online to fork (east and west), which to some extent it is already happening.​[1] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_Credit_System

Viewing Youtube-videos while maintaining priva…

What is a good way to view Youtube-videos without being spied on by Google?Currently I use VPN + instead of going directly to Youtube I use proxysite.com so that i don’t give away my browser fingerprint to Google, and just to get another step between me and Google so its impossible for them to profile me.However proxysite.com crashes for me all the time, and is quite annoying. Is there another proxy that is more useful? Or some other way of watching youtube-videos privately? I have a dedicated virtual machine for this, so I’m not too worried about the proxysite having malware.
