privacytools.io has a list of VPNs located outside of the US (although I am still be wary of ones operating in 5, 9, and 14 eyes surveillance countries). That one privacy site also has a detailed comparison of a LOT of VPNs.

/u/Random_Revolutionary is right though, that PIA donates to free software, so I think they're worth supporting if it fits your threat model.

I was thinking it'd be cool if we could make it a weekly(or any other regular interval) meetup on matrix so we could all collaborate in real time. Also maybe it's better to just decide what we want to do session to session, and not necessarily commit ourselves to a single project from the get go. Just some thoughts.

Also I think I'm gonna make a poll in /f/programming to see the programming languages people know, which might help in decisions.

One idea I had, for the programmers around here, is to have regular meetings where we'd all spend some time contributing to a free software project together. I personally find that kind of thing daunting, so I think getting a few people together would make it less intimidating and more fun. We'd be able to help each other out and learn some cool stuff along the way, I think.

Hi Leah, thanks for all your hard work on libreboot.

Do you have any advice for people looking to get involved in writing firmware? I'd like to contribute to libre firmware myself eventually, although at the moment I'm not nearly skilled enough.
