Bypassing Censorship to Publish Exclusive and Suppressed (But Fact-Checked) Stories

Posted in Site News at 6:26 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

The types of stories that are almost assured to attract legal threats and smear campaigns (ad hominem)

Smudge and Biden Template: Corporate media

Summary: Looking back at the past month, despite many difficulties we’ve managed to still put lots of important information out there (for millions of readers/viewers)

THE past month was particularly slow for us, partly due to technical issues (mainly our home connection, so we must rely on workarounds) and partly due to logistics. Nevertheless, Techrights clocked nearly 12.5 million hits and over 19 TB in traffic (video is the cause for that very large number). Today we receive a lot of traffic (temporary boost/surge) because we’re at the front page of Hacker News, which typically loves spiking links to Techrights.

“IPFS as a medium is largely stable by now and access to this site over IPFS ought to be perfectly reliable any time of the day from any place in the world…”Last month we spent a lot of time and effort covering some EPO leaks and Intel leaks. All that stuff was “exclusive” and less than a week ago we broke the story about Microsoft and the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Many people did not realise that because the media didn’t credit the original source. As is so typical these days (more so in social control ‘media’). But credit and attributions aren’t what’s of utmost importance. The important thing is that we helped raise awareness of a real and growing issue. For the Raspberry Pi Foundation this isn’t the first such ordeal [1, 2] and Microsoft won’t leave the foundation alone, not when it targets the desktop market with its “400″ series.

Woman Yelling at Biden Cat: You said Microsoft loved LinuxWe recently became aware of other Microsoft dirty dealings and we’re discussing how to best cover it (without ‘blowing covers’ or exposing sources). This may take some time. It happened weeks ago and it showed that Microsoft is very much trying to undermine GNU/Linux from the inside (hey, when did the Linux Foundation last condemn Microsoft for anything?).

Our experiment with video by far exceeded our hopes and expectations, so videos are here to stay (for the foreseeable future). The same goes for memes, which are fast to produce and add an element of humour to otherwise-difficult subjects.

The people who attempted to incite RMS against us apparently misused or weaponised labels like “conspiracy theories” (or accused us of “nazi” something, probably because we’ve exposed things like EPO and IBM connections to former Nazi Germany; Benoît Battistelli misused the “nazi” label against anyone whom he disliked or who exposed him).

At the moment we’re preparing a number of important stories along several new themes. IPFS as a medium is largely stable by now and access to this site over IPFS ought to be perfectly reliable any time of the day from any place in the world (even if the main server experiences difficulties; we came under DDOS attacks a week ago, resulting in almost 2 hours of downtime). IPFS is very good at bypassing censorship and as far as we’re aware the EPO is still blocking the site. Not even China blocks this site. António Campinos should adopt a Chinese name. Or Maybe a North Korean name. António Parkinos?

  5. Gemini Protocol About to Turn 4 and It's Still Growing

    In the month of May we had zero downtime (no updates to the system or outages in the network), which means Lupa did not detect any errors such as timeouts and we’re on top of the list (the page was fixed a day or so after we wrote about it); Gemini continues to grow (chart by Botond) as we’re approaching the 4th anniversary of the protocol

  8. [Meme] Makes No Sense for EPO (Now Connected to the EU) and Staff Pensions to be Tied to the UK After Brexit

    It seems like EPO staff is starting to have doubts about the safety of EPO pensions after Benoît Battistelli sent money to reckless gambling (EPOTIF) — a plot that’s 100% supported by António Campinos and his enablers in the Council, not to mention the European Union

    Work is becoming a lot worse (not even compliant with the law!) and promises are constantly being broken, so staff is starting to chase management for answers and assurances pertaining to finances

    It’s good that the FSF prepares an event to celebrate GNU’s 40th anniversary, but readers told us that the speakers list is unsavoury, especially the first one (a key participant in the relentless campaign of defamation against the person who started both GNU and the FSF; the "FSFE" isn't even permitted to use that name)
