9.14 /e/ DeGoogle


As we become more focused on the need for privacy (see Section 79.2), which will be increasingly an issue for society, more people will gravitate to privacy preserving platforms. The /e/ Foundation is developing an Android distribution which is disentangled from Google. No longer will your data be sent to Google from your Google-based device every 5 or so minutes (and similarly iOS sata to Apple).

The /e/ Foundation’s Android is based on the open source LineageOS version of Android which itself is a fork of CyanogenMod, all based on the foundation of the Android Open Source Software (itself basically being a fork of GNU/Linux).

Your donation will support ongoing availability and give you access to the PDF version of this book. Desktop Survival Guides include Data Science, GNU/Linux, and MLHub. Books available on Amazon include Data Mining with Rattle and Essentials of Data Science. Popular open source software includes rattle, wajig, and mlhub.
