One of my recent blogs in which I try to debunk common misconceptions about password managers. https://johnopdenakker.com/common-misconceptions-about-password-managers/
If you’re interested in helping out, I pay about $350/year to host infosec.exchange, not including my time. I have about $30/year in donations. You can donate here: https://liberapay.com/Infosec.exchange/
Note: don’t feel bad about not donating. The service will still be here. I am fortunate to be in a position to provide the service. But I get the angry stare from my wife now and then when she asks me about the charges 😂

I am in the process of rehoming the media files for this instance to the Wasabi cloud storage service. There may be some funkiness as I’m flying without a net (though I have plenty of backups).

Thank you for your patience.

A new NDA contract, intended to be offered by privacy-respecting websites to their users: https://writing.kemitchell.com/2019/07/14/PANDA.html
The creator hopes that it will do for privacy-respecting Terms of Service what Creative Commons did for free-licensed content—serve not just as a contract, but as a readily recognizable shorthand for desirable terms.
also, let's say i want to set up a fediverse-related web app, which is very narrowly-scoped, so it won't be popular. how do i find out if someone actually uses it? is it ok to add analytics from a 3rd-party service (which isn't google analytics)? is it ok to save data on my server? and what data is ok? country and sha256 hash of ip address? i could make a big red warning before executing the tracking code!
