>the FBI is moving forward with a probe into how classified documents were leaked to The Intercept for its article revealing details about a database of terrorism suspects
>Erik Wemple, writing for The Washington Post, noted the conspicuous refusal of The Intercept to use the term "targeted killings" to refer to the U.S. drone program, instead referring to the drone strikes as "assassinations"
>The Intercept's founder "has relentlessly criticized Israel and its political leadership, and at times has invoked tropes of dual loyalty in attacking the pro-Israel community"
>it was reported that members of the U.S. military had been banned from reading The Intercept
from a quick reading the intercept seems to make the american government pissed, am i supposed to hate them more than fucking oracle of all things?

Yeah maybe stop using the corporate cloud altogether, it's turning into hostile territory. The Palestinian cause used to be a human rights issue, if their algorithms now think that's terrorism they are pretty far gone already.

Why would a flying aircraft carrier even need a runway? Just drop the aircraft from the bottom and they'll attain the velocity to fly.

Something that big would have such a powerful exhaust that it becomes a wind-storm weapon as soon as it flies low over the ground, it wouldn't need any dedicated weapons or fighters.

I find myself drawn into obsessively wasting my time on the internet. i used to be more productive when i didnt have a smartphone but now, the itch of having distraction at my fingers every single minute of every day has tanked my attention span and drags my attention away whenever i do work.

There has never been better systems of control than these that keep us occupied on vapid bullshit at all times of the day.

i know i can fight it but i need some tools. How do you guys mitigate the itch to look at your phone or whatever. i live in China so i cant get out of using my phone for literally everything, you cant survive here without one on your pocket. But whats your advice/ tools for mitigating this?

 No.8140

Get rid of all the accounts you don't need, even going as far as hunting down all the old stuff you no longer use and purging that as well
Get a password manager to manage the accounts you do have
Use something like pomodoro to force yourself to do something if you can't get yourself to do it naturally
Physically write down what you need to do in the morning, then keep a backup in an application like Emacs org-mode if you need to. Do the most annoying/tedious work first if you can.
Think of your long-term goals and also physically write those down, then make a digital backup
Sync your password manager and goals across devices, make sure your goals are somewhere will you see them a lot so that you are reminded of them
On your phone, delete all the apps you don't need and shut off all the notifications that aren't important

Yes and no, airships for recon still have uses if there is no risk of them attacked and DARPA is devloping drone airships that job would be just sit on a boarder and listen in to radio signals with a nation they are technically not at war with.

I still use audacious because it has a very clean and simple old school interface that can be customized and cleaned up further. Everything else I find too cluttered or/and lacking.

If I wanted to start my own website dedicated to piracy that is open to the public such as Pirate Bay, libgen, or sci-hub how would I go about it? What providers will protect me from government intervention?
Pic unrelated

 No.8106

stop calling it piracy, stop the verbal diarrhea, this are examples of piracy:
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/09/us/politics/wise-honest-north-korea-ship-seized.html
https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/largest-us-seizure-iranian-fuel-four-tankers

If you don't know how this is done, your only option is to join the copy-censorship mafia organizations that want to shake down online sharing websites, to learn all their tricks and get into a position to disrupt their activities, before you start your own online sharing platform. Extra points if you can trick them into funding it. People in the know will never spill the beans in a public forum, the howto you are looking for doesn't exist.

If you want my advice, start a web-service for creatives and "content-producers" that enforces creative commons licenses. Get good integration with free software tools. Your goal is to create a network effect for your licensing scheme that draws in all the creative workers into the creative commons dimension. Once all the living producers of media operate in the creative commons, politics will change and all the old media with copy-censorship licenses will loose enforcement. Creative commons production has one killer feature, it's much easier and cheaper to reuse media assets. You have to make new media formats that have mandatory mod-hooks for styling and theming. Producers should be able to reuse any media asset in the creative commons library and apply styles and themes that make them look consistent. You also have to make the finished media products interactive, for example a video game made with Modable.Creative.Commons. assets should allow artists to pause the game and rightclick on a game-asset and save it for later reuse.

You can make something new that doesn't already exist or you can do something boring like yet another sharing site.

 No.8110

>>8106
I'm not making another sharing site. I want to create an application akin to Spotify and Soundcloud that has equally gigantic libraries without any copyright enforcement so certain libraries aren't sacrificed. while still keeping it social such that people can create and share playlists easily.
I have a feeling this would be pretty popular based on the responses I've got to such an idea.

 No.8112

>>8110
My advice would be to add a feature for making and remixing music that is on you application, so that it's not just a spotify or soundcloud clone without copywrong enforcement.

 No.8113

>>8110
I've toyed around with this idea before, but I don't exactly have the technical knowledge to make it come to fruition. My only concern would be that the tech-mafia would go after the end user. You could create a website with a library of all the media and host it in russia, and then maybe an app where links could easily be viewed but is not explicitly linked to the website.

 No.8119

>>8113
I could program the website I just dont have the expertise when it comes to security and taking precautions against western governments.
