Third World Countries with Free Internet ConnectonBecause of both Google Loon, Facebook Drones, or Elon Musks Satellite WiFi promoting the idea of Satellites and Balloons carrying free internet connections. What could we expect out of this? Would they become red pilled and promote our ideas in their governments and vote Drumpf whenever possible?

What makes a hacker a hacker?This is Ira Wrinkler's "Are you a hacker or are you a clueless teenager?" test from HOPE '97. A little bit dated but I think it still mostly holds up. (tweaked the wording slightly to apply in 2016)

Should I stop running my Tor relaySo, now that it is clear that Tor got rid of Appelbaum not because he did something wrong, but because a handful others wanted him gone (and get his job); and seeing that after the allegations collapsed, the initiators of the smear campaign are still in charge in the Foundation:
