I've been trying to introduce some fellow activists (not your average Joe Clueless ) to concepts like digital self defence, de-Googling, encryption and decentralisation and believe me when I say the resistance to these ideas is fierce, ranging from "Facebook is easy" to "Google drive is free", to "how can this help us"


@Antanicus Same here. Activists seem very focussed on their causes, also because those most of the time take quiteca lot energy itself. Most people see computers and digital communication as mere tools to use for their purposes, that's also why a lot of people keep doing their stuff using Facebook or WhatsApp rather than wasting their time getting people on another comm channel which doesn't help their cause.

@Antanicus @switchingsocial it takes time, but people do get it eventually. Also, it's important to find examples that resonate. It's not easy.
