The Tin Hat is a really interesting website, with lots of tutorials and blog articles regarding privacy and security on the internet. There are some very good articles relating to the Tor and I2P networks.

Here is a small list of hacker books I like.
Here are a couple of new documentaries I have watched and recommend.
I’ve just finished watching a pretty scary documentary called Terms and Conditions May Apply. It doesn’t necessary tell me something I didn’t already know or at the very least suspected but it still made me feel pretty sick.
I had already begun the process of deleting my data from my social networking accounts and closing them down. After watching this documentary it’s made me more determined to head down this path. The scary thing is my data probably won’t actually be deleted from these companies servers (who knows how long they will retain it for).
This is a must see – I definitely recommend this documentary to everyone.
Here are another couple of movies that are worth a watch. Algorithm is not a documentary and I didn’t think it was fantastic but it had its moments. I really liked We Are Legion, you meet some pretty cool characters.
If you like computers and the internet I’m sure you’ll find these documentaries interesting.
I was looking through some old CDs and found a backup of the WAFL website from early 2004. My brother and I created and maintained the West Australian Football League (WAFL) website from 2002 – march 2004. I’ve got some great memories of back then so I’ve decided to lauch it again – as is (uncut).

There are a lot of options if you want to store your files online (in the cloud) for free (free as in money not necessarily freedom). I’ve put together a list of the services I’m aware of and have used myself but this list will not be exhaustive. You can use these services as an off-site backup or for an easy way to share your files with family and friends.
Some of these services such as Google Drive and Zoho are online office suites which enable you to actually create and edit documents in your web browser. Also some services such as Flickr and YouTube will only store certain file types, for example Flickr will only store photos and YouTube only videos.
This list is in no particular order.
I have an updated article regarding ownCloud – ownCloud 9
05/08/2014 – I’ve just upgraded to version 7.0.1
Access, sync and share your data on across all of your devices. This is a great piece of open source software. I’m currently running ownCloud 7 on my own server. I can upload documents, video, photos and music and then get access to it anywhere. I can also upload my contacts, website bookmarks, calendar appointments and task lists. Because it’s running on my own server and the software is free (as in freedom ) I don’t have any privacy concerns.

If you are installing on Ubuntu just follow these instructions:
Here is a list of the some useful Apps I’ve installed with ownCloud:
If you don’t want to run your own server there are ownCloud providers.
If you’re looking for an alternative to Dropbox, Flickr, Google etc. that is Open Source and totally free software give ownCloud a try.
Getting a Virtual Private Server (VPS) seems to be very popular. They are actually fun to play around with. I’m currently using two Amazon Web Services EC2 instances but there are heaps of options out there.
Here are some links to VPS offerings which I have investigated:
