#Snowden, #NSA, #cloud, #surveillance, #escape

You heard of Edward Snowden that's for sure.

Somehow you woke up and want out of the cloud.

If you used to use something like Dropbox but don't want to miss the comfort, think about using BitTorrent Sync. Choose a setup that works in your LAN only and you are fine.

One thing you might still miss: the Dropbox server was kind of a clearing instance and you didn't need to have at least two computers online to get things going. That's true, but think of using a Raspberry Pi as the "always on" repository. Works just fine and is even faster.


You might even consider using Syncthing instead of BtSync, because it is open source.
