Technology Tools for Activists Handbook
Tech Tools for Activism (TTFA) has just released the latest version of it's handbook, with information and instructions for tools any activist can use. The handbook is not filled with flashy, sexy programs, nor does it give you THE one comprehensive answer that takes care of all your security needs. What the handbook does well, however, is to give you a simple explanation about why your security is at risk, and give you free programs that will help keep you safe. Both the easy to read layout and educational explanations make this handbook a good primer for activists, their partners, and for anyone who has a general interest in security while using communications technology.
Included in the manual are topics such as:
- Email & Email Lists
- Anonymous Blogs and Websites
- Microblogging Beyond Twitter
- Browsing the Internet Safely
- Organising & Networking Online
- Mobile Phone Security and Android Apps
- Publishing your News
- Uploading Media to the Internet
- Green Computing
- Hiding & Deleting Things on your PC
The handbook is a great complement to other guides, such as securityinabox.org and tachtical tech. Hopefully, the use of free, educational guides like these ones will increase general understanding of the risks we take every time we connect via our devices, and the ways to mitigate these risks.
Democratic activists and human rights organizers aren't computer geeks — and now they don't have to be.
