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.

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 🔗 .
