Now they are promoting to sell your #data voluntarily.
The reason being if #BigTech is already profiting from your data why shouldn’t you sell it too and make some money in the process. 😑
This will be a paid short-term project producing FLOSS. DM or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
Not an iOS dev? That's okay, boosts appreciated too! 🙂
So you've heard of #AndrewLee, the #CrownPrinceOfKorea, who just took over and ruined #freenode. Have you heard of shells.com? It's his new company offering online machines that run linux. They're on a podcast blitz, pushing their product. His brother, Alex, and others are in attendance but strangely missing is Andrew. They mention that they have a huge presence on IRC but don't mention freenode.
Know who you're supporting if you buy their product.

Tried signing up on #Contra yesterday with my mail id under my own domain name. They refused right away stating it as invalid email while my old Gmail worked perfectly fine.
Took it to #Twitter and reported it tagging their official account. They reached out to me soon and took some details and reported back to me after a couple of hours stating that they have fixed the issue from their end. Yet to try it out tho.
I'm glad for this small win against #BigTech. 😊
