Tonic: an app that gives you personalized reading recommendations, ethically

I'm part of a tiny team of people who just released a free article-recommending app for the iPhone. While building/tweaking/testing it I kept getting recommendations that make me think of good Metafilter posts, so I wanted to pass it along! In addition to having amazing content, we've built it in a way that I think folks here would really appreciate. [more inside]

Cybersecurity for the Trumped

Because I'm worried for all those who now find themselves (soon to be) living under a government that they cannot trust, I've decided to try my best to help people enhance their online privacy and security. So I have started posting on this blog about the risks, and the things we can do to help avoid them. [more inside]

It's not about Advertising. It's about Consent

In all the furor over iOS 9 content blocking, many of the loudest voices are questioning the ethics of ad blocking. This five-minute read on medium shifts the perspective to the ethics of data collection and who gets to control what data is shared by our devices.

The End of Privacy: a podcast series on the collision between journalism and privacy

I'm producing a five-part podcast series on the intersection of journalism and privacy issues. Episode one, When Governments Spy on Journalists, went live today. It looks at the spyware-maker Hacking Team and journalists who spent years under surveillance by the London Metro Police. With guests from The Intercept and Privacy International.

Frank: Free, truly private, messaging for iOS

In the wake of the recent wiretapping allegations, I thought this might be of interest. Frank is a fairly unique iOS app which we've developed for secure chat. It permits frictionless, accountless, completely anonymous, end-to-end encrypted conversations, voicemails etc. Free at this point, although we will have to start charging for it sooner or later to cover server costs. Elevator pitch below the fold. [more inside]

A Privacy Policy Generator for Mobile Apps

Privacy policies now are actually required across app stores and people are risking fines and being sued for not complying with the COPPA. So iubenda makes it really easy to comply with these requirements. (it's not just California btw. but California makes it clear that any app that is geared towards Californians, falls under their regulation).
Btw. we're always happy receiving feedback through the site, @iubenda or on here as well. :)

Gawker Blocker

It's hard for me to rationalize my hatred for all things Gawker, so I won't even try. Call it irrational and move on. Sometime ago I got tired of clicking links only to be taken to a Gawker site. I can lay a list of sins at their feet (the most recent being the disabling of the browser back button when visiting their sites), so I decided to do something about it. [more inside]

Don't Index Me!

A little while back I thought that it would be nice to be able to post things online that couldn't be indexed by search engines. So, I put together a simple site that takes text, renders it to an image, and allows you to link to it. The idea is that this could be used for things like email addresses (to avoid spam) or writings by political dissidents (to avoid detection by oppressive governments). Enjoy!
