@Cincinnatus Welcome to Fosstodon!
@Cincinnatus Welcome, I want to read the book, glad it made you rethink digital choices!
@Cincinnatus Welcome! Snowden's book is waiting in my shelf 🙂 I have just started reading Shoshana Zuboff's "The Age of Surveillance Capitalism", which I believe talks both of the money made of our unvoluntarily left behaviour data trail as on the #robberbarons style of Google, FB and others. 500+ pages though...
I'll definitely have to read that too. Thanks for the suggestion. Seems very interesting
Hmm that's interesting I kind of thought the surveillance of my finances was inevitable. I'm going to check this stuff out. Thanks
@Cincinnatus it sort of is but you can slow it down at least.
@Cincinnatus I have as well! I've been moving over from Mac to Ubuntu and especially moving away from Google services. Just joined Mastodon today and glad to trade ideas. 😀
