“I’m against surveillance capitalism but Google’s service is listed first on my app because it is so popular” is the “I’m against the tobacco industry but I offer anyone coming into my home a cigarette because smoking’s so popular” of tech.

If you offer people easy access to cigarettes without so much as a warning about the risks, you might want to reconsider whether you really are against Big Tobacco or whether you’re doing their bidding.

Just sent an email from my gmail to all of my contacts letting them know that they should contact me at my @Tutanota one. That felt good.

I'm starting to like Mastodon, might stick around longer than I expected.

Recently wrote a script which blocks all ip addresses/ranges related to an ASN number through iptables (both incoming and outgoing).

I've got Facebook and Microsoft entirely blocked out but damn, the entire Internet breaks when you block out Google 😥

Hello, decided to try out mastodon and since I've been an open sourcy person for quite a while now, I thought I'd register at fosstodon.

Linuxer as hobby and work, both.

No clue what to expect from this but I guess I'll find out soon enough :)
