Wow, everything seems to be hosted through AWS nowadays. https://gizmodo.com/i-tried-to-block-amazon-from-my-life-it-was-impossible-1830565336
@deegge this is horrifying to read. I want to throw every computer I own into the river.
@deegge I really dislike AWS but S3 + CloudFront are just too convenient, time saving and fast. Aside, if you consider that there are thousands of servers, running nothing more than a simple website, I'm quite happy hosting everything on S3/CloudFront (straight from Jekyll). Any good alternatives?
@franz You're asking the right questions!
@franz Cloud technology as such does make sense from the perspective of efficient resource usage. The problem is when everything is controlled by one company, especially when it's Amazon who keep showing that they are more than willing to throw any ethics out the window just to control everything.
@colomar no doubt, you're absolutely right!
