New #blog post: “A look at search engines with their own indexes”.

Most “alternative” search engines to the big three (Google, Bing, Yandex aka GBY) just source their results from GBY. I took a look at 30 search engines with their own crawlers/indexers to find actual alternatives.

I have unlimited respect for people who have the courage and energy to keep leading change, who work on things that are not mainstream.

Be it monitoring political figures, making sure a government respects the law, fighting for social rights, protecting employees from an employer, providing software or services that frees others... you are heroes and what you do matters.

Thank you for caring about others.

"[A] solid independent and private alternative to the big tech search engines ... it's probably the direct biggest rival to the Big Tech search engines that have their own crawlers." 🤭😊

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.
