Pirates, typified by The Pirate Bay, are under increasing attack from the authorities around the world. Sweden is more than the spiritual home of The Pirate Bay – so it is not surprising that user-reaction to these attacks is being led by Swedes with an increasing use of VPNs.
"Only days after clearing Congress, US President Barack Obama signed his name to H.R. 347 on Thursday, officially making it a federal offense to cause a disturbance at certain political events — essentially criminalizing protest in the States."
Our comment: What the fuck?
Blue Cabinet is a working project to document vendors and manufacturers of surveillance equipment that are used in dictatorships and democracies around the internets.
The purpose of this page is to create an overview and to share resources between Telecomix and other projects out there that have the same goal as us;to name, shame and expose those who profit on selling the surveillance equipment that enables the intimidation, harassment and killing of innocent people
Telecomix is a sociocyphernetic telecommunist cluster of internet and data loving bots and people, always striving to protect and improve the internet and defend the free flow of data. Telecomix, just like the Internet, knows no borders technological or territorial.
We have no specific agenda, IRCocratic leadership and no pre-determined practices. We are an occurance rather than a group; a siphonophoric organism transmitting its genome through memes and imitation rather than through rules and regulations. We are in love with the internet, we call this datalove, and if you want, you can join us simply by stepping into our chat below.
A lot of our work takes place in sub-clusters, autonomous groups spawned from the main Telecomix organism. Some of our sub-clusters have taken the form of direct interventions: encrypting, disseminating, connecting. Others have developed techniques and technologies, building things to make the internet safe for internauts everywhere. Also, we spawn research projects for the advancement of knowledge in the vast fields of techno-philosophy, fourth parameter space, and quantum cryptography. All of this is done under a umbrella of datalove and a drive for constructive action and evolution. We always strive for the next level!
Over time we change and evolve, engage in new projects and refactor our work. If you want to become part of this ever-changing flux, join us on irc.telecomix.org (SSL on 6697) in the main channel #telecomix or click the Join! link above. To know more about Telecomix, feel free to read Wikipedia.
