NEW PRODUCT COMING SOON – How To Be A Digital Revolutionary – E-Book with USB Bracelet - by Violet Blue
https://www.adafruit.com/product/3532

This is our world, right now: Racist bullies binge on power, science fights to stop the slide into another dark age, women are targets, and the past is forgotten. Under a hostile and cavalier government, protests form online while calls to take action are broadcast on social media.

How To Be A Digital Revolutionary illuminates why we're here and what we can do, standing in this moment with devices in hand, as both eyewitnesses and active participants to significant social change. It thoroughly runs down the hazards of taking action to fight injustice and fascism in the digital age, providing readers with a roadmap for effective resistance.

We're offering Violet Blue's ever-relevant new book in a digital format, housed on a black USB bracelet with the word "*RESIST*" printed in white.

How To Be A Digital Revolutionary is woven from clear explainers about murky topics like surveillance and censorship, hands-on strategies to dial back news overwhelm and rage fatigue, first-person accounts in hacking, practical safety advice for protests, and gritty reporting on rights abuses in the digital realm.

Here, you'll learn to identify and minimize your surveillance footprint, about anonymity and making separate identities, how to buy or make a burner phone, and to hack-proof your life. Make your phone less of a tracking device, and keep your communication both secure and private. Find out which documents to keep with you at marches, and how to stay safe if a protest gets violent. Discover ways to support your cause when you can't be there in person.

Find groups to join and get rid of poison people. Make a digital protest sign that makes emergency calls if it gets confiscated, choose or make a body camera, and learn how to record, photo, and share under stress. Fight filters and blocks, and defy being censored on social media. Find out how to "leak" with tools like SecureDrop, and how to create posts and memes that matter.

In a time of rampant injustices, How To Be A Digital Revolutionary offers a powerful new handbook for the resistance, and a way forward for change no matter your level of technical acumen.

Ms. Violet Blue (tinynibbles.com, @violetblue) is a freelance investigative journalist on hacking and cybercrime, as well as a noted columnist and award-winning author. Ms. Blue and her books have appeared on CNN and The Oprah Winfrey Show, among others, and she has been interviewed, quoted, and featured in a variety of outlets including BBC, The New York Times, Guardian, Motherboard, and The Wall Street Journal.

"As a barometer of our national consciousness, Google is as accurate (and predictive) as it gets. In 2016, when the Republican primaries were just beginning, most pundits and pollsters did not believe Trump could win. After all, he had insulted veterans, women, minorities, and countless other constituencies.

But Stephens-Davidowitz saw clues in his Google research that suggested Trump was far more serious than many supposed. Searches containing racist epithets and jokes were spiking across the country during Trump’s primary run, and not merely in the South but in upstate New York, Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, rural Illinois, West Virginia, and industrial Michigan."
