I posted this to Mastodon but thought it bore repeating here:
Im sure Purism intends to and likely will be privacy respecting. However we need to be building and using infrastructure where one entity isn’t well positioned to mine or observe all of our data.
We shouldn’t be depending on Purism to be honorable.
Our platform vendors should not be our service providers.
We should have networks of diverse service providers.
Collusion between all these silos of data should be difficult. Not easy.
