So ive spent all day today and most of yesterday looking into this company… and I love it. I love the people behind it, I love the philosophy, and I would like to support this company’s mission, not just buy a safe phone.
Has there been much talk on Purism creating its own privacy based ecosystem? It seems like Tod Weaver made the laptop as a stepping stone to get to the phone. Creating Librum one was a stepping stone to get good stock apps on the phone.
It seems like Purism has incidentally started creating its own privacy focused ecosystem, and I love it.
Does Tod or others on the team see this? Do they intend on creating a more broad hardware and software ecosystem? Is there a future where I could have my purism phone, purism computer, purism smart TV, Purism home AI… all with a focus on privacy and all with the purism devices and software intergrating well with one another (or as well as possible without sacrificing privacy.)?
Because thats what I want. I dont want this vision to stop with the phone. I want a privacy and freedom focused alternative to google and apple.
Right now, in order to secure ones privacy, they have to do it piecemeal. Research Tutanota vs Protonmail, research NordVPN vs IPA, research android vs apple, Research Signal vs Matrix, etc etc… I want an ecosystem where, if I meet someone concerned about privacy, I can basically tell them to sell all the tech they have, because Purism has a hardware or software equivalent to what they are already using, and Purism can be their one stop shop.
Tod Weaver… If you are reading this. Please do this. Think big.
If I hear Purism wants to do this… Im gonna go out and buy some stock.
