You know, I think about data protection and all that. I think about privacy. I hear everyone blame the 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.

I just want to quit my job and play Elite Dangerous.

This is my first post on this instance. So I guess its time for

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)
- Gaming
- Degooglifying
- Alternatives to Android (excl. iOS)

Hey my music is *free* and *creative commons (share alike)* at 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. 😃
