You know, I think about data protection and all that. I think about privacy. I hear everyone blame the #FAANG companies for all their privacy woes and all I hear is whining. I have whined about it too I guess. Google never lied about their intentions. They were very upfront with how you paid for their awesome and free products. I feel like FAANG shouldn't be apologizing or taking responsibility. The user gave up responsibility willingly and it is up to the user to take back responsibility.

This is my first post on this instance. So I guess its time for #introductions
I first started using Mastodon back in 2017. I tried a few Finnish 🇫🇮 instances but they slowly degraded to unusable status. So here I am at Fosstodon! I've followed a few Fosstodonians proviously and I see this community is active and hospitable. I'm also a FOSS nerd so I think I'll enjoy my stay here.
My interest include:
- FOSS (obviously)
- Alternatives to Android (excl. iOS)
We just posted our first poll for project donations on Patreon where one of the projects listed will get a $150 donation from us!
If you're interested in getting having a say on where the donation will go, you can sign up to become a Patron using the link below.
HUGE thanks to all of our current Patrons, we wouldn't be able to do this awesome stuff without you guys!

Hey my music is *free* and *creative commons (share alike)* at https://ApproachingUtopia.com/music and I would really appreciate if you could check it out.
So far people have donated $30 to my music this year and I am very grateful for that.
@emsenn okay, so here is my plan. I will try Emacs ONE more time. I'll commit to it. Between your posts about it and the different things I've seen on the web recently, I want to try once more to solve my organization needs and writing needs once again with Emacs and org mode. 😃
