Today he joins us to discuss sovereign computing and true digital privacy. Most people are beginning to recognize the significance of exposing personal / private information to companies like google, facebook, coinbase, and amazon. We’re entrusting important information to companies that may not have the incentives in place to protect it or may even have incentives to further compromise that data.
And yet, we often do utilize their services – they are easy to use and appear cost effective. The barrier to entry for self-hosting (many) services has seemed too high for the non-technical, the too busy, and the thrifty. Today, the people who are running servers are primary corporations, government & wealthy individuals – the ability to do so is powerful.
Those who aren’t running servers are renting that power from those who do – and they are paying that rent with their data, money and personal information. It’s time to take that power back. Today Matt and I talk about the trade-offs of using cloud services, what compromises one is making by choosing to, and what alternatives are available.
We then explain Start9’s Embassy one of the best and most simple to use alternatives available today. You can use the Embassy and its installed services in total privacy, right from a browser, from anywhere on Earth, and there are no trusted 3rd parties.
What you do with your Embassy is your business; it cannot be monitored or accessed by anyone – not even Start9, not even your ISP. It is your sovereign territory in the land of the Internet.
