The last several weeks have seen some very unfortunate changes in the geopolitical realm where privacy is concerned. We’ve seen a number of oppressive laws enacted and others meant to protect our rights, disbanded in the short space of about a month. The fight for our privacy marches forward and this means a demand for more action from you and me.
As a result of these events, this project has been getting a lot of attention from some surprisingly large and well respected news outlets and privacy organizations. It’s been my privilege to help educate and provide data for people to make wise decisions when it comes to their privacy. This recent wave of attention has taken basically all of my free time in order to keep the site up and everyone’s questions answered! However, in order to focus on That One Privacy Site and my research for this project, I’m afraid that means I need to let go of some other responsibilities.
So, the announcement: As of today, I will be stepping down from my mod duties on Reddit in order to better focus on That One Privacy Site. I have handed off my duties to the other capable mods there and I have full confidence in their ability to barricade those subs from the shills that plagued them previously. (I will still be active in the community there).
TLDR: We have a heck of a fight ahead of us over the next several years, and so I will be shifting attention from my mod duties on Reddit – to better focus on this project.
