@dheadshot Even if it was a criticism then we would welcome it, too few engines actually listen to the people who make use of their services! We're actually currently reviewing our provision of image search and this is a consideration for that. The real answer is that we have been focussed on our index/regular organic results for a while, adding images was done quickly, and due to requests from people using Mojeek. We've realised recently (from feedback) that we need to improve that offering.

Google has backed down massively. It is now signing deals with Australian news media to pay for their content. The Australian government, by refusing to give in to threats by Google, has created a worldwide precedent.

Before you can do bad things to people with a clear conscience, you must dehumanise them. In Big Tech designers and developers can build systems that track, profile, and exploit people then go home to hug their kids because they’re not people to them, they’re “users” and “data.”

We have this interesting feature proposal for /e/OS: a second "panic" PIN code that can fully erase the device in case of emergency. It's been rejected by Google for Android.

Do you think we should implement it?

Vous vous êtes dégooglisé, vous utilisez un moteur alternatif ? C’est bien, mais il y a de forte chance qu’il utilise les infras d’amazon, picore dans l’index de Microsoft, utilise de l’analytics de chez Google.

Il n’y a en pratique presque aucune alternative de moteur de recherche qui soit éthiquement irréprochable (ouai le mot est ptet fort).

Il existe cependant Mojeek.

J’ai fait un ptit article à son sujet 🔗 .

Voilà voilà :-)

At 2021-01-29 at 21:35 UTC Google suspended #Element from the Play Store without warning or notification.

Element is a generic chat app for connecting to the global Matrix communication network, just as Chrome is a generic web browser for connecting to the Web - and just as #Google does not control the content on the Web, Element does not control the content on #Matrix.

Here's my public safety announcement: Have you backed up today?

We're now completing the moving of servers into our new room and so you may have issues accessing Mojeek over the next few hours.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused - on the bright side this room has enough space to fit our new servers 😎
