"One night, I run into Internet Archive founder Brewster Kahle, who is delighted to hear about the block. “It’s hard to get away from technology,” he says. “A friend was just telling me about trying to get a TV that wasn’t smart and didn’t have a microphone.

I think that's what I'll probably do! And a Raspberry Pi.
android's redeeming features are only there when you compare it against windows mobile or iOS. when you compare android against a desktop operating system, it becomes apparent how terrible it and every other mobile operating system is. i don't want GNOME 3 on my phone, but i don't want Unfortunately, YouTube has stopped., the shitty ecosystem of app stores, the normalisation of apps with advertisements, the way that google intentionally makes it as difficult as possible to use android without non-free google garbage, the fracturing of version distributions, samsung touchwiz and other horrid themes, the bixby button, notches, the removal of the headphone jack, the removal of the microSD... why are phones so terrible?
You can get it from the official site:
It is really easy to use, it automatically learns as it goes along, and you can use it simultaneously with different kinds of protective add-ons like uBlock Origin.

Here's an idea: a #NoJS challenge.
Even if it seems impossible, look it up. It just might be possible.
There's so much stuff in there now, even a seasoned webmaster could be surprised.
The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, quote Show more
The extraction imperative demands that everything be possessed. In this new context, goods and services are merely surveillance-bound supply routes. It's not the car; it's the behavioral data from driving the car. It's not the map; it's the behavioral data from interacting with the map.

Project Fission–Firefox will get a "site isolation" feature, similar to Chrome/Chromium:

Idealist, technologist and general optimist.
