We've come so far, but the first family that kept me safe in Hong Kong is still struggling. If you can help, donations are very welcome. It'll make a world of difference to a mother and her child: t.co/4lNLIa0OGg

If you ever wonder where we're at on the dystopia scale, consider that it's normal to believe the government is spying on you, and crazy to believe that they're not.

Il semble que le gouvernement français capitulera face au cartel du Cloud et fournira les informations médicales du pays directement à Microsoft. Pourquoi? C'est juste plus simple. t.co/iz0Il2o1GD

Apple and Google intend to push pandemic trackers into most of the world's smartphones. In response, @ACLU just published a whitepaper listing bottom-line principles phone-based contact-tracing systems must follow to comply with basic rights. Summary: t.co/ZZ4KuaKUIb

Governments around the world are exploiting the pandemic to monitor us like never before. I discuss it with @GGreenwald here on SYSTEM UPDATE: t.co/JlLQDQe6uA

As authoritarianism spreads, as emergency laws proliferate, as we sacrifice our rights, we also sacrifice our capability to arrest the slide into a less liberal and less free world. Here's how it happens: t.co/wwpLSW9O9N

We need to know whether our hospitals are safe. If we can't even prevent retaliation against healthcare workers for warning of hazards during a pandemic, "whistleblower protection" is a cruel myth. t.co/3MhSQLOr1C

A Seattle hospital just fired a 17-year ER doctor for exposing its refusal to implement crucial nCoV safety measures, risking community health. "Several" staffers just tested positive for , but the hospital denies liability, claiming coincidence.

Remember, the EARN IT act is only the latest attack in the government's very long war on encryption. Switzerland's most sensitive communications-security company was secretly run by the CIA. There is nothing these people won't do to stamp out the idea of a private conversation. t.co/v4MOAhqQjP

The government is attempting to exploit anger at tech companies to pass a law that intentionally undermines digital security (t.co/up4cseuDD1), and censors speech. That such a law is even being considered by Congress is a national disgrace.

A big position just opened up at @EFF, one of the world's most important digital rights organizations. Everyone on the internet depends on their work, and you could be their new Tech Projects director. t.co/9H6nAoCZ24

If you're a reporter and following the Assange Espionage Act extradition case--and you should be, since it's possibly the biggest press freedoms case in a generation--it's worth reading this thread on the defense's first arguments, which really blow a hole in the govt's case. t.co/ebKUimRA48

BIG: Presidential hopefuls should be asked their position on the costly failure of the NSA's unconstitutional mass surveillance program, part of which is up for renewal on March 15th. Today's report reveals a long history of abuse & no meaningful success.

I know it is a slow news days with nothing at all happening in the world, but this is a very important story: t.co/IDOOdXxXfK
