The Interview

It seems that Kim Jong-un the supreme leader (he should get a stylist to fix his hair cut)of North Korea did not like this movie which shows at least that he does not have a sense of humor.  For a country where weed is legal it kind of surprises me but then again I can imagine that if you have no junk food to quell the munchies one could get irritated :)

What ISIS Really Wants by G Wood


A long but very concise and interesting explanation of what the ISIS is and wants... a should read for anyone interested in the middle east and different islamic cults.

http://www.theatlantic.com/features/archive/2015/02/what-isis-really-wants/384980/

"Muslims who call the Islamic State un-Islamic are typically,  embarrassed and politically correct, with a cotton-candy view of their own religion that neglects what their religion has historically and legally required" 

"Barack Obama himself drifted into takfiri waters when he claimed that the Islamic State was “not Islamic”—the irony being that he, as the non-Muslim son of a Muslim, may himself be classified as an apostate, and yet is now practicing takfir against Muslims."


"Muslims can say that slavery is not legitimate now, and that crucifixion is wrong at this historical juncture. Many say precisely this. But they cannot condemn slavery or crucifixion outright without contradicting the Koran and the example of the Prophet. “The only principled ground that the Islamic State’s opponents could take is to say that certain core texts and traditional teachings of Islam are no longer valid,” Bernard Haykel says. That really would be an act of apostasy"

Deaddrop Formentera


Recently I was made to understand that there were things that I could not voice "you can not say these things" they did not deny the veracity of my statement or ask for clarification. I see this as clearly an attempt to curtail free speech and I did understand that they were trying to silence more than my own statements.

On a small Island like Formentera the population practice auto censorship because of the fear of negative repercussion on their business or a visit from the police or guardia civil.

Recent changes in the law and new laws which I consider of fascist nature are being implemented by the political party that inherited the franquist mentality and values of the post civil war nazi supported dictatorship.

As a response I decided to participate in as many possible forms of anonymous free speech platforms.

One of the most simple and effective is the dead drop initiative which you can discover at https://deaddrops.com

And here I present to you our first Dead Drop
in Formentera !

FreedomBox Fighting Back 4 Freedom




The FreedomBox is a fork from the PirateBox 

Here I will expose the proof of concept of my fork of the PirateBox which I named FreedomBox, The FreedomBox runs on open source software and is basically an offnet (as in not connected to the internet) communication device where people can anonymously post files to share things like images video text etc as well as chat using their laptops or mobile devices.


The FreedomBox can be powered by solar energy, mains and car 12-volts cigarette lighter power source it also has its own backup battery power. The idea is that people would leave these devices in their cars, workplace or home and create FreeBox HotSpots to power anonymous information exchange.

We are we at now ? the open source software running the unit is 90% done we need to update the interface as to include image and text posting ability similar to facebook, you will be able to add an image / comment and other anon users will be able to reply the more likes the more the posts is uprated and the later it is overwritten,


Some pics to see what is under dev.

 




 The proof of concept hardware is in testing.



I am now sourcing potential manufacturing options in china as well as partners to grow the team will update when things evolve :)
