@celia congrats Ru! and good luck with this new opportunity!

Thanks Failory for featuring me! We're growing so fast that by the time the interview got published, the numbers I shared were way out of date! 😂


@NotABot @fatboy @plausible i would say most people don't know about Google Analytics and about adblockers either.

Alternative is to build / promote more ethical websites and apps that can compete with the surveillance capitalism tools. With a business model that doesn't rely on tracking / profiling / selling / sharing of personal data but for instance charging a fee for the service itself

@davidoclubb i couldn't find other formats... was looking for a pdf myself earlier 😀

@danslerush you're welcome! consistency is key :)

i post manually on each as i tag people often and that doesn't translate well...

"The Low Impact Website Manifesto"

Great site! Love when brands practice what they preach!

Wish they had a better GDPR implementation (option to say no). Or avoid the banner and reduce weight further by replacing GA with a private/light alternative.


@kensanata yep and the same trend can be seen in pretty much all the other countries.

Congrats to Boyan Slat and TheOceanCleanup on their first product! 👏

Sunglasses made with plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch with 100% of the proceeds going towards the continuation of the cleanup.


Apple's and Google's co-opetition: “Our vision is that we work as if we are one company”

Almost 50% of Google’s search traffic now comes from Apple devices

Google accounts for 14% to 21% of Apple’s annual profits (estimated $8 to $12 billion)


@bamfic @happybeing that's why probably most products made by hackers are only used by other hackers and the general population sticks to pretty and convenient proprietary products. and this has to change if foss is to become more popular and more relevant

@kev yeah, i was looking at removing web fonts so this was a perfect thing to play on this saturday morning! 😀 added a link to you on my home page too!

@tobtobxx yep! despite all the scandals etc, google has a huge search market share all over the world (about 90%). DDG is decent for us too though. 17 trials this month

My favourite chart. If you can get search engines to start sending you relevant, organic traffic you're solving a big marketing issue for your project. Google has now sent us 100+ trials two months in a row. That's a great base to start from.
