We have updated the marketing section of our Ethics page.
We explain what we don't do and why, touching on paid reviews, surveillance ads, dark patterns and spam and other tactics.
We have also added examples on how attract new customers instead, e.g. improving our service, educational projects and sponsorships.
We do things with open data for public good and social change.
Equal pay (£40k/pa), flat structure, remote work. Flexible working with part time options. Lots of benefits.

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.
@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.
Hi all, Geary is looking for a co-maintainer!
@mjog doesn't have enough time to to do it all by themselves any more, and so is looking for a hand in taking care of day-to-day tasks such as bug triaging and fixing, and working on improving the front-end side of the app in particular.
If you're interested, take a look at the issue tracker, and pitch on in!
If you have any questions, please thread them below or get in touch with @mjog 👇

@emanuele This article doesn't even dare to suggest that you could stop doing business with Amazon. That's pathetic.
"It’s impossible to stop Amazon tracking you completely – if you’re going to shop with Amazon then Amazon will collect your data"
