Why not use the onion icon from the Tor style guide?


After the work done on having a unified visual style guide for Tor,
I'm worried to see more versions of the onion being developed...
Or are you working on a new version of the onion that's meant to be used
everywhere in the future?

Awesome! I'd be very interested in reading these interviews!

We've been doing interviews of Tails users for the past 1.5 year.
For privacy reasons, I'm not saving a full transcript of the interview
but in the last ones, I've been trying to integrate in my summaries more

For example, to illustrate this tension between full transcript and
summary, I find it super important to use a vocabulary that's closer to
what users use instead of translating it into Tails jargon; which in
turn can inform the vocabulary to use on our website.

What are you plans to share the output of these interviews with the
wider community?

And here is an excellent book on interviewing users:
