In the last year Google has banned: the Element app, the LBRY app, and several Fediverse apps. If you get all of your apps from a single corporation, be it Google or Apple, you should make an effort to change that.

If you have an Android phone F-Droid is an alternative app repository, and it’s very easy to install! All of the previously mentioned apps have been available from F-Droid throughout being dropped from the Play Store.

If you have an iPhone, please consider other options for your next device. Apple does not respect you enough as a user to consider you possibly more capable of deciding what you should install on your phone than they are. That is absurd; please stop rewarding this behavior with your money.

I'm reading Nineteen Eighty-Four right now, and the fictional language of Newspeak sounds eerily similar to Esperanto.

Yes! Proof that just because you're a large company running heavy-duty web apps doesn't mean you have to track people around everywhere. Kudos, GitHub! 🎉

The Social Network, but with OG Mark Zuckerberg's face deepfaked onto Jesse Eisenberg.

I'd love to see him get mad about privacy.

TIL the MacBook Pro microphone makes my voice sound manlier than it really is.

I had a dream where I was getting crushed slowly with a group of friends and made a terrible joke and then realized that was the last sound everyone was going to hear.

Yep, I'm that person.

List of places you cannot leave once you enter:

- a black hole
- a rabbit hole
- Bermuda Triangle
- Hotel California
- vim

Locale lesson for today:

🇬🇧 Pavement
🇺🇲 Sidewalk
🇮🇳 Footpath

🇬🇧 Flight
🇺🇲 Airplane
🇮🇳 Aeroplane

🇬🇧 Aubergine
🇺🇲 Eggplant (seriously?)
🇮🇳 Brinjal

Privacy is the bedrock of personhood. It is the right that ensures the encapsulation of the person. All else – self-determination, agency, etc. – derive from this basic protection which we must treat as an inalienable human right.

99% of programming is figuring out why you received a banana when you asked for an apple.

(And the answer is always “because you actually asked for a banana all along.”)

New plan: Wake up and check all the random "silly / cute animal" channels with my morning coffee instead of the latest vitriol and chaos on social media.

2021 is already exhausting, but we CAN at least control the first things that enter our brains when jump out of bed.

Please don’t dig up my backyard. There’s nothing there.
