What’s are the frictions keeping you from doing “what’s right”? Regret is only useful if it leads to a plan on how to improve.

Confessional:  I posted pictures on a non-anonymous twitter account at a rally while I was there. Some would argue that this is a mistake.  I say that if you’re a cis hetero white woman like me, it’s essential.  White ladies get insidiously punished when we break the mold of the genteel, soft spoken, pleasant helpmate. But we can use that expectation to shield those that society implicitly labels as threatening and scary. If all the pleasant little white ladies are here, it must be the done thing. If this blondish, make-up wearing, pie-baking, hat-knitting, smiling married lady who’s never gotten more than a speeding ticket is worried about privacy and security, it must be normal. Just relax and go along, all you market-based, vote depending folks who get worried when someone mentions the H word. Here’s just a “normal person with legitimate concerns” by your own messed up definition.  Sometimes refusing to take certain types of precautions, if you have the privilege, might be the protest. That’s what I went with. Your milage may vary.*

* this goes for putting yourself at risk, not others. If the information you’re handling isn’t yours, opting to not to take precautions is not your call.

Continuing Set Up

We’ve covered so much so fast. You’re not behind, you’re just where you are. Pick something to do.

  • If you’re having trouble with all the set up, the coach tool at the Crash Override Network has a great step by step break down for many of the same introductory steps we did here.
  • Review the list of OneThing articles so far and pick one to catch up on.


This list will be getting longer, but lets keep it simple while folks are still setting up.


Where do you scan for news? I keep an eye out for recent exploits and breaches that have come to light, new tools, interesting idea’s, etc.


We are a community. You are a welcome part of it.
