Sorry, running long! Final step after replacing keyboard & tightening 5 screws is to pop in my interchangeable ports; I went with one Micro SD, one USB A, & one USB C as my default. That leaves me one spot where I can swap out HDMI or extra USB C, depending on what I'm doing! 4/5

Looks scary? What's really scary are computers like the Surface which have basically zero repair/replace option. Framework is completely opposite - I can replace/upgrade SSD, memory, WiFi, keyboard etc... all with great ease. I snapped in a 1 TB SSD, 32 FB RAM, AX210 WiFi.. 3/4

Just got my DIY edition of the @FrameworkPuter laptop... I've been wanting this since I read @doctorow's writeup on @Medium - and when my Surface's battery died, I knew just what I'd replace it with! Case comes apart easily with the included screwdriver/spudger... 2/3

NEW: @liaholland and I wrote for @WIRED about how forced-birth extremists want to scrub the Internet of abortion info, advocacy and fundraising. We need Democrats to wake up, listen to experts, and hold the line against dangerous changes to Section 230 wired.com/story/section-…

Bring better informed won’t make you happier - probably - but it will make you better-prepared. If you don’t follow @doctorow (who, on top of everything else, is one hell of a writer), do consider it. Especially in these times. twitter.com/doctorow/statu…

@doctorow @GOP This is a great thread. Another point is if a DA is prosecuting they would only bring cases where there’s strong evidence and period tracking data alone would be a tough/near impossible sell to a jury without the mentioned texts, witness testimony etc.

Great thread on how period tracking apps are only a small, often irrelevant, piece in the machine where abortion cops rely on snitches and consent searches of your phone with special spy apps (always demand a warrant) to prosecute. Key digital privacy article: twitter.com/doctorow/statu…

Excellent thread on the difficulties presented by our broad (and growing) spectrum of surveillance means and methods, and our woefully inadequate laws regulating surveillance and data use (including current 4A jurisprudence). twitter.com/doctorow/statu…

Thorough (as usual) overview of how the cops will figure out if you had an abortion (hint: not via your period tracker, but all your other apps, plus snitches) and resources to protect yourself. Reminder: NEVER talk to cops, or let them look at your phone!! twitter.com/doctorow/statu…

Our entire app/surveillance complex is a dumpster-conflagration, so limiting one app is not enough. Thankfully @EFF has a useful guide eff.org/deeplinks/2022… / Spanish: eff.org/es/deeplinks/2… twitter.com/doctorow/statu…
