Running an OnionShare anonymous dropbox on a Raspberry Pi

Posted February 24, 2021 in onionshare leaks sysadmin tor

Now that the command line version of OnionShare has better support for running on headless Linux servers, I figured I should set up a dedicated Raspberry Pi anonymous dropbox server, and while I'm at it document how I'm doing it in a blog post.

OnionShare 2.3 adds tabs, anonymous chat, better command line support, and quite a bit more

Posted February 21, 2021 in onionshare code

After a ridiculously long sixteen months (or roughly ten years in pandemic time) I'm excited to announce that OnionShare 2.3 is out! Download it from onionshare.org.

This version includes loads of new and exciting features which you can read about in much more detail on the brand new OnionShare documentation website, docs.onionshare.org. For now though I'm just going to go over the major ones: tabs, anonymous chat, and better command line support.

Easily automate deleting your old tweets, likes, and DMs with Semiphemeral

Posted September 10, 2020 in semiphemeral

Roughly one hundred years ago, in June of 2019, I released an open source Twitter privacy tool called Semiphemeral that makes it simple-ish to delete years of old tweets. The great thing about Semiphemeral is, unlike similar tools, it's flexible: you don't have to delete all of your old tweets if you don't want to. You can, say, choose to keep tweets that have at least 20 likes, flag specific tweets you want to never delete, or delete all your retweets and likes that are older than a week.

But at the time, Semiphemeral was only usable by the nerdiest among us. It required running commands in a terminal window, creating your own Twitter API key, and, if you want to automate it, setting up a cron job on a server. But this is no longer the case!

For the last several months I've been running an easy-to-use hosted version at Semiphemeral.com. Now anyone* can easily delete their old tweets, likes, and now even direct messages (more on this below).

Problematic behavior from the Whonix project

Posted June 22, 2020 in drama tor qubes

The first sign that something weird was going on with the Whonix project -- software, which is integrated into the Qubes operating system, that allows you to run anonymous VMs that force all your internet traffic through the Tor network, run primarily by Patrick Schleizer -- was in September 2018 when the project's official Twitter account tweeted, "We miss Jacob Appelbaum."
