"When you’re on #socialmedia
, use a digital home assistant or chat over a #messaging
app, store files on the #cloud
, enter a #search
term in a browser or visit a #website
, you’re being tracked
– by a market that uses your phone or laptop, operating system and applications to collect as much information about you as possible. Your exploited information is later sold
between various companies, and the choice of withholding it is not in your control. At Purism, we provide an alternative so you aren’t forced to give your information to corporations who profit from it."

have packaged & presented their services in a very friendly and understandable manner.
This goes a long way to encouraging a greater uptake of #LibreSoftware
& will maintain user interoperability outside of the proprietary norm. Certainly this is a good step towards solving the #geekproblem
identified by @hamish campbell
& the #4opens
initiative, way back when & sadly still very applicable today.
