Everything In Public
Open by default[edit | edit source]
Potentially a better name.
Some people are still concerned about privacy, LOL: https://medium.com/s/trustissues/find-out-what-google-and-facebook-know-about-you-31d0fa6d7b61
- I do not trust my hardware, operating system, browser, internet service provider, etc...
- I do not have recourse against a sufficiently motivated attacker, be it a hacker or a state actor, be it a quantum computer or $5 wrench
The moment I start "protecting" my privacy, it's a race - who is going to outsmart who, there is always someone smarter. Do I really want to invest time and energy? F••• them all, everything in public, open by default:
- My phone number is public.
- My email address is public.
- My physical address is public. (kind of public, you need to know how to use Google Maps)
Life is a gift, to live is an art. I want to shine bright, manifest love and light. Me investing into privacy and security sounds like a joke... Be real. See also Core Values - trust, honesty, integrity.

"The Big Hack: How China Used a Tiny Chip to Infiltrate U.S. Companies"
I always assumed that is the case, now there is an evidence to prove it.
Open source divorce[edit | edit source]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ignorantia_juris_non_excusat - should have consulted lawyer before acting according to my core values.
Courts are strange places, maybe I'll manage to avoid prison time.
Theory - members of the public want taxes to be invested in healthcare and education, not court system, court system is for criminals. Too bad "normal people" (not criminals) have to use court system sometimes. Next time:
Default position[edit | edit source]
By default I'm OK to keeping everything in public:
- Legal documents
- Processes and procedures
It is not yet determined whether it is legal to publish emails: http://law.stackexchange.com/questions/3980/is-it-legal-to-publish-email-that-someone-sent-to-me
Protecting Privacy[edit | edit source]
I haven't formed an opinion. I accept shortcomings of existing technologies.
Exceptions[edit | edit source]
- Discussing sensitive issues of vulnerable members. See: Freedom#Safety_measures
- Stock Exchange#Transparency - when sharing too much information might be detrimental to the winning strategy (still subject to discussion)
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skunkworks_project - on some occasions certain projects may require secrecy.
- Proposal: on every meeting allocate 5 minutes for "off the record" discussion. If 50% of the members decide that skunkwork project is required, then separate action will be taken.
- Currently there are no processes for skunkwork projects (as we are not solving issues that hasn't yet occurred)
- Committing a Crime (discussing a crime might be a subject of skunkwork project)
