New world emerging: censorship resistant services
A challenger to Google with real promise
Everywhere I look, I see a new world of censorship-resistant services emerging.
Of course, we all know Rumble. There is a new email list service called BeserkerMail, and next week I’ll be talking with a payment processor who is part of Parallel Economy a censor-resistant ecosystem.
I happen to know one of BerserkerMail’s founders, and can vouch for this:
BerserkerMail’s founders find the big tech de-platforming shtick as revolting as it is stupid. They don’t care if you are a Republican. They don’t care if you believe vaccines are the devil. And they don’t care if you believe a secret cabal of billionaires want to de-populate the world. They hate the thought police, despise big tech fascism, and have nothing but contempt for cancel culture.
Unlike MailChimp, who will do their best to destroy your organization by closing your account and not allowing you access to YOUR email list (the lifeblood of any business or non-profit), BeserkerMail emails you a download link every single day so that you are reminded to easily backup your list.
Today, I want to share with you a decentralized search engine called Presearch.
A nearly insurmountable challenge for any new search engine is competing with the quality of Google’s results. So long as you’re not searching on health or politics, Google’s results are very good.
With Presearch, you get Google’s results without using Google. Presearch makes use of Google’s index, which means you can get the benefit without giving Google any information at all. And you can customize your searches with results from other sites as well.
The core Presearch team leans libertarian. After I put up some ads for VaxCalc, I received this unexpected email:
Presearch fan here. You outstaked me on keywords through Presearch which is how I found VaxCalc. I love the website. My son was vaccine injured a few years ago, he received the MMR vaccine at 18 months and lost all of his speech and some cognitive abilities. He has since gone through therapy and is catching up quickly. Education on vaccines is really important!
I highly recommend giving Presearch a try. Here’s how you can do it:
Download the Presearch app onto your phone. The app is actually an effective privacy browser
Make sure that you’re using the Brave browser (built on Chrome, but with privacy baked in)
Change your default search engine to Presearch (reply in comments if you need to see a guide to do that)
If you try Presearch, please share your impressions here. I use it all the time and love it.
Hope everyone is doing great! I’ve missed posting and sharing here with you. I’m finally (finally!) feeling good consistently, after going through a great deal of grief about my nephew. Hard to believe it’s almost been a year.
