Just a few days into lockdown I could not access any of the riseup pages or services from my computer (and the adventure that followed ended up in the workshop that two friends and i will stream today 30th of January from 3pm in Madrid and Berlin, 2pm in London, with an option to ask questions on IRC).Continue reading

Summary of the technical report and current situation of the web Women on Web
Summary of the technical report and the current status of the WomenOnWeb
22 May 2020
Since the end of January 2020, the information website on abortion Women on Web is being blocked in Spanish territory. As described in a detailed technical report published on the 5th of May, several Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are blocking the website. In the absence of confirmation from the ISP companies, we can only speculate that this blockade could arise as an initiative of the Ministry of Health, through the Spanish Agency of Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS for its acronym in Spanish). Despite the fact that Women On Web has been operating all over the world for years thanks to its unquestionable rigour in the medical and legal field, its website is being censored silently, without any legal intervention and without giving any explanation about the existence of the blockade itself to the users.Continue reading
Women On Web
Since pepephone blocked me from accessing riseup.net, the people from the magma guide know how to contact me, and so they did, when they noticed that the website http://womenonweb.org/, which offers information on contraceptive and abortion options and pills on donation, was blocked by all major Spanish internet service providers (ISPs). I couldn’t give them reason apart from confirming that pepephone also blocks it, so I asked some people from hackmeeting and sindominio. A commotion was raised, articles were written in Catalan, in Spanish, in English. The website seems still blocked today. Even though it can be accessed over TOR and some VPN. Apparently the Opera browser offers some free VPN. (So do riseup.net and aktivix.org but you need a friend to introduce you).Continue reading
I couldn’t access any riseup page http://riseup.net using the ADSL provided by PepePhone for two days
Here is a screenshot
I asked both riseup and Pepephone people. On twitter.
In riseup they told me that they saw no problems, and in fact the site was well accessed from other parts of Europe.Continue reading
Bloqueo por censura
Durante dos días no he podido acceder a ninguna pagina de riseup http://riseup.net usando el ADSL proporcionado por PepePhone.
Aquí hay una captura de pantalla
Pregunté tanto a gente de riseup como de Pepephone.
En riseup me dijeron que por su parte no veían problemas, y de hecho se accedía bien a la página desde otras partes de Europa.
Puesto que no obtenía respuesta de Pepephone, para solucionar el problema, lo “rodeé”. Pude utilizar un servicio de VPN de “terceros”.Continue reading
Indymedia fue un gran proyecto, casi mundial, nacido en Seattle, Va, EE.UU., en 1999. Fue el primer `lugar’, el primer portal de Internet en el que cualquiera que tuviera un ordenador y una conexión a Internet podía publicar sus propias noticias, su propio texto y contenido multimedia.

Indymedia was a big, almost world wide project, born in Seattle, VA, USA, in 1999. It was the first ‘place’, the very first internet outlet where any one with a computer and an internet connection could post their own news, their own text and media content. Continue reading

In case any remote reader is every looking for a good WordPress host which is not network23 because it would be aimed for setting up a commercial business to (hopefully) earn an income, so that would rule out Network 23, but yet ethical behaviour would be a requirement.
Projects that are run by people just as cool as Network23 are for example:
On email, software and network23
I continuously bug my friends to get an aktivix or riseup email address. It feels so cosy, to keep your communications away from all the surveillance.
