How to Setup A Hastebin Server Hastebin is a beautiful simple pastebin used for sharing little pieces of code or information between friends/coworkers. A friend introduced me to it about a month ago when we were trying to collaborate on a piece of batch script we were working through. After utilizing it for a couple of weeks and realizing its usability, I had the epiphany of hosting my own Hastebin! And a plus is, all collaboration is stored on one of my own machines and not out there in the wild somewhere (it helps me sleep better at night). Enjoy! Steps for installing a Hastebin Server Why Nico Sell, CEO of Wickr, Demands Privacy and Resists Social-Media Business There's a lot you won't learn about Nico Sell in the course of this story.

You won't find out the names of her two girls or her husband's name or whether hers is Nico Sell at all.

Revealed: 'Collect It All' NSA Targets Those Seeking Web Privacy (Image: via Boing Boing)Internet users who use online privacy tools or read certain websites may themselves become targets of NSA surveillance, according to a new investigation by public broadcasting outlets in Germany published on Thursday. Citing documents that refer to "deep packet inspection" rules used by the NSA for its so-called "XKeyscore" program to determine what targets are selected for surveillance and how, the investigation (versions: German | English) reveals that people who seek out or use online privacy tools—including things like TOR, a network tool that provides digital anonymity and minimizes exposure to possible surveillance—may be targeted simply for making those efforts. Other platforms targeted by the program include the LINUX open source operating system as well as privacy and encryption services such as HotSpotShield, FreeNet, Centurian, FreeProxies.org, MegaProxy, privacy.li and an anonymous email service called MixMinion.

Encrypting Your Laptop Like You Mean It Time and again, people are told there is one obvious way to mitigate privacy threats of all sorts, from mass government surveillance to pervasive online tracking to cybercriminals: Encryption. As President Obama put it earlier this year, speaking in between his administration’s attacks on encryption, “There’s no scenario in which we don’t want really strong encryption.” Even after helping expose all the ways the government can get its hands on your data, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden still maintained, “Encryption works. Properly implemented strong crypto systems are one of the few things that you can rely on.” But how can ordinary people get started using encryption? Encryption comes in many forms and is used at many different stages in the handling of digital information (you’re using it right now, perhaps without even realizing it, because your connection to this website is encrypted).
