Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.

Failure to do so risks perpetuating and reinforcing exclusionary and discriminatory practices.


After over 4 years since the people of the UK voted, we have officially left the EU.

I'm so sad. I want back in 😢

A small number of people pushed their bigoted ideas onto the theUK population.

Lies were told to sell it to people as a good thing. Thoughts of old fashioned sovereignty and independence were used to make us feel "free" of oppression from the evil foreigners in Brussels.

The EU isn't perfect, not by a long shot. But it was better than being out of it.

It's nice to know that some in authority still care about the global pandemic.

Coded Bias. A film about bias and discrimination in the software you use. As "AI" gets used more and more, people are starting to see how it has the same prejudices that the people who control it have. And the people who control it are a very small, mostly homogeneous, group of people.
