North Star Post was founded in 2015 following the collaboration of the core team on uncovering the FBI’s aerial surveillance program. The core team is split between Minneapolis and Phoenix, and all of us have varying day jobs / obligations that make meeting in person a challenge. Our newspaper covers surveillance, technology, and government accountability among other issues. We seek to keep our research, notes, and communications confidential.
We choose to use self-hosted applications and avoid cloud services for a number of reasons:
Our budget is limited, so professional hosted services would rack up costs. Cheaper
