Shrink Your Big Tech Footprint

You might want to minimize your use of big tech platforms because:

  1. We don't know what partners, advertisers, agencies, and algorithms are being fed your private content and usage data

  2. Centralized platforms are constantly targeted for large-scale hacking and data breaches, and your private documents may be stolen even if you have not been targeted

  3. Somewhere within their fine-print, it probably says they own all of your content (or at least a copy of it)

  4. Big tech frequently changes their terms, privacy, censorship, and shadow-banning policies may change over time and disrupt your usage

Morgan's Resume

Upgrade With Open Source Software

With proprietary software, a limited number of programmers can check the code. But Rockhopper installs mature open source products that have been constantly improved for many years by countless developers around the world.

The geek crowd collectively vets code for any security holes - or unintended data harvesting - while being motivated to fix such problems.

The users of open source software also have a vested interest in helping each other figure out problems and best ways to get work done. The core protocols which run the internet are all open source.

Rockhopper can set you up with software like...

  • ONLYOFFICE - over 10,000,000 users worldwide
  • Passbolt - used by 15,000 organizations worldwide
  • Mattermost - over 4,000 open source project contributors
  • Jitsi - over 6,000,000 visits per month
  • WordPress - powers 43% of all websites on internet
