Running as much open-sourced privacy oriented software as possible. This includes on computers, routers, and phones. While this is 100% a marathon, not just a quick change, it’s well worth the time. Utilizing an encrypted DNS would be another solid move. NextDNS is a fantastic choice as it has a free option which still provides granular control of what is filtered online. A trusted VPN mixing your internet traffic with others is great, but like you said, it’s not a magic bullet whatsoever.

If you’re talking OpenWRT, then I totally agree. But something like Asus Merlin is a relatively easy change and still provides additional protection. While part of the Asus code is closed-source, most is open-sourced and Asus has implemented improvements developed by the Merlin team. This shows Merlin knows what they’re doing and are trustworthy too.

The IzzyOnDroid repo for FDroid has Proton Mail. Plus contacts are accessible in the Mail app. But 100% agree with calendar and drive!

Viruses have always been both quite simple and intricate. Recent advances in lab tech has allowed for a more detailed understanding to be possible that wasn’t feasible before. Viruses have evolved to only posses the absolute basics as they mainly utilize the host’s machinery. Each virus family is more related to it’s host than to any other virus family. Meaning they all have a unique approach for infection and replication. This being the case, I find all research into viruses to be relevant as there’s still so much to learn.

Mines a toss up between microbiology and immunology, but I also totally get your favorite as it’s the basis for all sciences!

In the big picture, it’s due to the microscopic world having massive implications across life. I’ve also lost friends and family to autoimmune disorders and cancer, so my long term goal is to improve our understanding in the field. Immunology is super fascinating, but there’s more we don’t know than we know about the immune system. We don’t even understand how fever works or Tylenol from start to finish for example!

What makes you stoked about physics?
