we still believe in free speech.
Though times get harder every day for those who want to find a voice for their opinion.
Thus, we created an Email post box which exists solely in the dark web since November: firstname.lastname@example.org.
From time to time we’ll check for new mails. Not on a daily basis but several times a month.
There were a few reasons why we chose TorBox as a provider:
* good reputation
* offer their services for a pretty long time already
* are not available through the clearnet
* 25 MB are free
* it’s easy to set up
Who knows, maybe we’ll widen the experiment some day in the future. Right now we’re taking part, observing. Today, it’s just an experiment.
We share the opinion that the dark web (or darknet, as it’s synonymously used) is still in it’s early stages of development. But as we stated above and elsewhere on our sites, things won’t get easier from last year on. Democracy is under attack and also its citizens. And for millions, who knows how many, the dark web became their one and only spot to communicate, to trade, and source of information. We are an independent online publisher, we support that. And want to be part of it. And no, we don’t think you’re paranoid: you are just normal.
Let’s fight for our freedom!

If you’re not happy with your cloud storage provider (e.g. OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.) because of the ongoing debate about internet surveillance, we are finally able to offer you some neat & secure cloud services by ourselves.
What we use right now and it’s perfectly working is ownCloud. It’s not only the most popular open-source cloud storage service (AGPLv3), it’s also one of the most updated and maintained.
The most important features for choosing our services are:
* SSL protection when logging in via your client or web interface (Comodo RSA)
* encryption for all of your files inside your cloud, too
Despite that you get traffic for free, CalDAV and CardDAV support, a document viewer as well as a rich picture gallery bundled with your account.
Due to the fact that we have to pay for webspace as well, we can’t offer you this service for free like the giant corporations. We can’t maintain a big server farm, unfortunately.
So here is how much cloud space you’ll get for your buck:
1GB – 1€/month
2GB – 2€/month
5GB – 5€/month
10GB – 10€/month
The appropriate client software is available (mostly for free) for Windows, Mac, Linux, as well as iOS & Android.
It’s possible to pay via PayPal (not anonymously) or Bitcoin (100% anonymously).
If you’re interested, drop us a line: email@example.com!
